    The OL will build on this. Great beginning when you consider this is 4 new starters and Garza. And two are green rookies. One is basically a college baseball player thrown in as a day-one starter for the Chicago Bears in their season opener.

    If you had told me 6 months ago that the Bears would attempt this against one of the best Dlines in the NFL I would have figured Cutlers body would be at a funeral home about now.

    Okay, we're all in agreement that line kinda stunk, right? Now, is it just a coincidence, or did it seem that the Bears D started "coming together" when Paea stepped up? Granted, we would've lost the game had Tillman not had his INTs, BUT, the defense didn't come together until Paea started wrecking havoc. I'm not too worried about the line atm, but he deserves a shout out.

    Two more thoughts, when I think about assigning grades today. I think you "grade on the curve" by factoring in that this is the 1st game of the season, and we have new coaches and key players. I'd grade a whole lot differently 8 games into the season. But for a first effort, I figure they're still "figuring it all out" and that includes the DLine today. I'm not one bit worried about the DL. I believe it will be one of our "strengths" but for now, it's a "work in progress" and that's OK.

    I agree with most comments, except for the o-line, no sacks and only a few pressures against a VERY good d-line. Also, first game together. I know the running game was not good, but again, very good d-line. I hope this is their worst game of the season. If so, we will have a great season!

    ya this is the first time in a long time I really have no serious issues w/how the team won in a big game, and if they had lost i'm not sure i'd have any serious issues with it either.

    Thank you for setting those grades straight because they're pretty far off.

    I agree, we won looking good and if we lost we still looked good. We need some things fixed either way.

    I give the Bears a grade of B...............for the most part it was a good game even with Cutler's 1 int (not his fault), the play calling was balanced and the defense forced turnovers.......only thing that needs to improve on the defense is pressure on the qb (this will improve as the season goes on).
