Come on. They vowed to improve for the Eagles game and they did. The stand on the one was a classic. Heck, they even got on Madden's horsey bus.<quoted text>
Honestly...they look a step slower than recent years. They made a big stop when they needed to but most of these guys are on the downhill side of talented.
To this fan, it is beginning to look like we have a team. A QB who can pass (most of the time) like other QB's, a running back that doesn't fall down when he is touched, some receivers that catch the ball, and a defense that can stop the opponent.
Granted, the division is looking like the weakest sister in the league, but the Bears are playing worthwhile football, and should make the post-season.
The biggest weakness I see continues to be the Oline. They are undersized for today's game, and maybe just s little past it. Need help there to give Orton just a second more.
