How is this team against your expectations before the season?

  1. Wildly exceeding my expectations, never thought we would start 3-0

    26.3%
  2. Generally exceeding my expectations, figured we had a shot to win the Division

    44.7%
  3. Pretty much what I expected, knew they could improve on their 10-6 record

    21.1%
  4. Expected better than what I've seen, they are still too sloppy in some areas

    7.9%

    1. The team has generally exceeded my expectations, as far as their progress so far adjusting to new coaches, players & new schemes, plays (and rookies starting). They basically gutted a large part of this team in the off-season. And the team has responded pretty well so far. The team still has a long ways to go though. And it is a HUGE work in progress at this point. But I'm really pleased with the progress so far.

    2. The team has wildly exceeded my expectations, as far as their record at this point. I really thought we'd start with some losses, and certainly didn't think we'd be unbeaten after 3 games. And being 2 games ahead of Green Bay seemed impossible.

    idk none of the options covers how I feel

    the oline is exceeding my expectations
    the dline is way off my expectations
    the defense is getting gashed but making opportune turnover....is that good/bad/?? idk

    So maybe Im just waiting to see whats up before I evaluate. Its 3 games dude.

    I can say Im pretty geeked starting out 3-0

    I never went wild when we hired Trestman. I did however get a bit excited when I heard he had taught Cutty earlier in life. ..its showing and I fekin love it...long may this continue.

    Better, but strangely unsatisfying as to how overall. Keep the ball rolling.

    These first 3 teams were teams they should beat. So I'm not impressed with all these close wins and the defense having to bail out our sputtering offense last night. Next 5 weeks we see what this team is really made of. But at least the defense continues to be a serious scoring threat and turnover machine, week after week.

    They've met my expectations, but only because the offense is significantly better than I thought they would be, and the defense is slightly worse than I thought. With them having 6 INTs and 7 FF's, I'm not harping on the defense so much, just waiting for the line to finally "click".

    better than I expected on the Oline.
    better than I expected with regards to Cutlers play
    better than I expected from The Black Unicorn
    Better than i expected with regards to turnovers created by the D


    Worse than I expected from the Dline pass rush

    About what I expected from the LBs
    About what I expected from Forte


    My guess was 9-7 or 10-6 and I hope that ends up better than I expected as well!

    They're right were I expected them to be. Before the season started I predicted a 13-3 record with wins in each of the first three games.

    With the talent this team has on both sides of the ball, There was no way we weren't going to improve on our 10-6 record from last year.

    This team can be scary good. We've beaten two of last year's playoff teams (one of which is a Super Bowl favorite) and got our first road victory in an extremely tough city/stadium to play in.

    The thing that most people don't realize is that yeah there's other 3-0 teams out there right now but, the difference with us is we haven't even hit our peak yet.

    We've played some really good solid football and haven't even been clicking on all cylinders yet.

    At some point this season Trestman's already much improved offense is going to get 100 percent comfortable in this new system, is going to get fully in sync, and then its going to be "uh oh" time for the rest of the NFC North and possibly the rest of the NFL.

    The Bears team has wildly exceeded my expectations, when Trestman was hired and I saw how he has won with the teams he's been with and made that team's qb better I knew that was the guy this team needed and the proof is in the pudding with the improved play from Cutler.......I knew he would help the Bears win some games on the offensive side of the ball but I never expected we'd be undefeated at this point in the season with a new coaching staff and offensive scheme etc....
