    They are capable of putting together a couple of good games in a season.
    But don't worry they will be the same bears we all know and love rather than the team we saw tonight.


    The Bears were also pumped for the game since Indy was the team to cream them in the SB.

    Orton is not as good as he looked.
    Hopefully :-\
    I don't know if I would say that, people forget this team was in the SB not long ago, they proved tonight they got a RB and Kyle Orton is night and day. Another thing that really impressed and what they did there SB year was pass rush. Alex Brown and Agunule look fresh. Tommie Harris is only 25 years old. Devin Hester also adds a real dimension and always gives them great field position.

    Like I said in my other post the only thing the Bears could have done better this offseason is kept Berrian.

    The Giants showed us what a good pass rush can do with a better team. Tonight it was Chicago's turn.

    Did Chicago really just beat the Colts that badly?
    Yes, and I had their Defense benched.

    Re: Did Chicago really just beat the Colts that badly?

    Good point, Tw, Peyton didn't look too bad. If either Wayne or Harrison had caught their fingertip drops they would have been game changers, and perhaps we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    And even if he was off due to his time away, keep in mind that he had surgery on July 26, and he didn't start practicing until last week. That's almost six weeks off, during the busiest time of the offseason for players. Tarvaris basically took 1.5 preseason games off since he wouldn't have played in Week 4 anyways.

    The more I think on it, the more confident I am that Tarvaris will be fine.

    Captain Neckbeard looked pretty decent, and Matt Forte had a fantastic debut. Meanwhile the defense is back to their old selves.

    Are the Bears actually that good, or does Indy just suddenly stink?
    it could be Attributed to the fact that manning has not payed a snap the whole preseason and is a little rusty or it could be that the bears just had a chip on their shoulder cuz its the superbowl rematch

    This is also a team that went 7-9 last season with a bunch of injuries and Sexy Rexy at the helm. They are not the Miami Dolphins.

    I though Peyton Manning was just fine, what wasn't fine was the Colts Offensive Line. Peyton was roughed up and pushed out of pocket/forced to throw on the run all night. The Bears were great they were physical, tackled well and most importantly got great pressure all game. Forte is a very good back he's a bigger guy thats no Bull, he gets north and south quickly, nice footwork, really knows how to run. Orton was another guy that did very well he looked confident and had some really nice throws, accurate all night. The biggest surprise for me was the way the Bears Offensive Line played.

    Peyton certainly was off on a couple passess but just by inches, in a couple more weeks and he's hitting those, still a fairly good game for him but flustered all night. The only thing that would have made the Bears better is if they kept Berrian as a deep threat for Orton, especailly now that there offense has a real RB and a QB that won't throw the game away.

    That's the problem. In a couple of more weeks they could be 0-2 or 0-3.

    With the Bears playing on this type of level its makes for a tuff division.

    It's not all about Manning.
    The loss of Jeff Saturday should not be minimized.
    Has everyone already forgotten how crappy the Vikings looked the season that Birk was out?

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I think we are all leaving out the fact that Orton is the next Brady.
