I'm driving home last night after the game listening to everybody bash the Bears on sports-talk radio. Then I read the mostly negative comments on this blog.
Sorry. I'm not as down on this team as many of you.
Yes, Sunday's win was ugly. Is the offensive line a mess? No question about it. But they moved the ball all over the field. If they can find a way to get out of their own way --- penalties, turnovers, miscues --- the offense can be potent. Defensively, I thought the Bears played pretty darn well. They should not have given up that final drive, sure enough. Overall, however, I thought there were a lot more positives than negatives on the defensive side of the ball.
As I've written before, this is a team that has to keep getting better as the season goes on. They left themselves plenty of room for improvement.
The Cowboys looked terrible last night. These Bears could go 2-0. No need to apologize for that.
