BEARS GAME 9 REVIEW
It’s always good to see a Bears win. But the first 55 minutes of that game undoubtedly represented the worst football in the NFL this year. That game was awful. And I’m not going to get all giddy that the Bears beat a team that is now 2-7 and has won one game at home this year.
Against the worst rushing defense in the league, the Bears could not mount an effective rushing attack. There are many words that can be used to describe Cedric Benson, but all you really need are 2: not good. Not that his line is any help. And maybe the most interesting thing about Jerry Angelo is that he made it a point to draft speed and put it all over the field except one place: running back.
The paper today is littered with references to Grossman returning to the starting role. Why? Because he beat a backup corner with a long bomb?
The best thing about the game was that the Bears defense somewhat resembled its former self. They allowed only 6 points and created some turnovers. Can they do that to Seattle? Against anyone else?
