In the Bears worthless offense, they won't have any individual WR catch more than 40 passes all year. Pass protection this year is going to be a joke and Ron Turner doesn't believe in the short passing game. If Hester plays WR all year, he won't finish the year because people will take some pot shots at him.

If Lloyd can't catch on with the Bears he is really hurting...our receivers are some of the worst in the NFL and if he catch on here he is in serious trouble.....Lovie has to brag on someone so why not pick some special team guys...How bad is it that that is all we can talk about....We are in trouble.....long losing season and we can all blame Angelo, Smith, Turner and Babich....Send them packing at the end of this lousy season....We deserve better....

Good to see the only four comments posted on here have been negative. How about this for a change. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE SEASON--THE BEARS ARE BACK AND LOOKING FOR REVENGE AGAINST THE COLTS ON SUNDAY NIGHT. Where did all the real fans go? Despite the constant negativity, my glass is always half full. MARK IT DOWN. THE BEARS WILL BE BETTER THAN THE NAYSAYERS PREDICT. A return to form for the defense along with a (gasp) better than expected offense (especially on the ground) will lead the Bears to victory in a weak division. I see many prognasticators selecting the Vikings as their surprize Super Bowl team. PLEASE. Tarvaris Jackson needs to show us he can lead his team to the playoffs first. A.P. won't surprise anybody this year. BEARS WIN THE NORTH.

Every fan is so concerned that the Bears "have no real number 1 receiver." We haven't seen Hester go deep in the preseason. Bradley, Lloyd and Davis have all showed some good things so far and Booker appears headed for the possession role. And Bennett has shown his flashes as a punt returner.

Perhaps, just maybe, the Bears approach of spreading the ball in the preseason can work to their advantage. Orton is certainly capable and defensea have no idea at the beginning of the season what tendencies this offense has.

Ron Turner is under fire this year, without doubt. His detractors say his offense is out-dated. What worked in 1995 doesn't and can't work in 2008.

Many more fans are tired of the lack of priority Jerry Angelo has had in building an offensive line. The biggest problem this offense has had has been the failure of that unit.

This line must give Orton the time to go thru his progressions if the first read isn't there. All too often the Bears QB had no time to get to his second read if the first option wasn't open last year.

IT IS TIME TO SEE WHAT TURNER'S OFFENSE CAN DO.

We're not who we think we are.

Make no mistake, the Bears can beat the Colts. That's because the Colts stink. Hopefully Rex won't leave Reggie Wayne uncovered this time. Also, hopefully Rex won't make the running back fumble in the first series of the game. From the bench it will be hard to blame him, but I am sure that won't stop the braintrust of bandwagon, fantasy idiots from demanding he stop looking too happy or too angry or too sad from the sideline while Orton flounders.

GoBears:Nice post good to see another True Fan posting! You know what I realized.There are alot of Die Hard Bear fans out there.They just are not posting on these blogs!! Because Die Hard Bear Fans DONT trash talk their own team in public(internet).We keep our frustrations in house,& continue to SUPPORT our team! Fans make a big difference,support breeds success.A team that is struggling needs its fans support more than ever!! Trash talking & beating them up doesnt support or help them!!! So that is not being a true fan. The games havent even been played yet!These so-called fans that post trash against our Bears.These People are either fans of OTHER teams.Or they are the typical Fair Weather Fans.Funny these pathetic individuals hate,trash talk & Fail to support the team they claim to be a fan of!! They expose themselves for what they are in their post's.They dont deserve to be a fan of our Bears.I am Proud to be a Bear fan!! I have been a die hard fan for 37 years! I always will be,Always! I cant wait to see them play,regardless of the circumstances.The off season is an eternity for me.I believe they will do well this year,barring injuries!

most of you don't seem to know much about football just take what the media say and take it as truth. Then get on here and state someone else's opinion and play like you know something probally never played a down of football in your life and no playing Madden doesn't make you know football so please stop blogging and leave this site for REAL Bear fan to discuss our team.
