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?

    I fell asleep during the game. Did the Bears win? FIRE MILLEN MANG! RUN THE BALL MORE THAN 8 TIMES IN A GAME!

    Yeah, that Bears D really shut down future HOF’er, Josh McCown and his stable of great WR’s. And who’s the Raiders RB nowadays? Fargas? Antonio? (eyes rolling, rolling and rolling more)

    BTW, do you ever post anything about college sports? Do you even watch college sports? FYI, that team from Illinois which resides in Champaign just knocked off the number one team in the nation on their home field in front of 105,000 rabid OSU fans. Not even a mention of it here. WEAK.

    Yes I occasionally post about college sports. Yes I watched that game.

    Go to Illini blog if you don’t like the coverage here.

    Thanks for the props!

    Grossman’s pass was lucky..he really never set up to throw the ball and Berrian made a nice stutter step to get open. Nice ball, but it seemed to be just thrown up like it was a game of 500. Of course, Grossman fumbles the first snap and it seemed the offense took a step back when he was behind center. Huff dropped an INT on the slant to Olsen. Once again, just a poor read. Even the completion to Muhammad was thrown behind him. The guy moves his feet in the pocket like he’s imitating James Brown. Bears fans need to be careful what they wish for, Grossman is still making the same fundamental mistakes.
