The evening got off to such a promising start for the Bears offense.
During one-on-one drills, the Bears quarterbacks were completing bombs to receivers. OK, it was mostly Jay Cutler, who hooked up with Johnny Knox and Dane Sanzenbacher on consecutive plays.
And with the brewing quarterback drama, Caleb Hanie resumed his role as Cutler's backup.
Unfortunately, Hanie had another rough night, throwing three interceptions. Cutler also was intercepted once.
"Tonight, a good job by our defense of taking the ball away. Not good by the offense with the amount of turnovers that we had," Bears coach Lovie Smith said. "That happens sometimes when you have two good groups competing against each other."
Here are some highs and lows:
* Tight end Kellen Davis had a big night, making several nice catches during practice. He had one impressive leaping one along the sideline from Cutler.
* Spencer Lanning and Adam Podlesh were booming some punts tonight, during special teams.
* Major Wright picked off a Cutler pass that was deflected.
* Julius Peppers smoked J'Marcus Webb on one rush and seemed to get to Cutler after only four or five steps backward.
* Webb had a rough night, in my opinion. Undrafted rookie Mario Addison got around him once with relative ease.
* Hanie had a rough, rough night. He was picked by Josh Moore, Craig Steltz and Corey Graham.
* Cornerback Zack Bowman, after telling reporters he did not have a concussion, actually has missed two practices BECAUSE of a mild concussion.
* D.J. Moore is a playmaker, and he wants to get more opportunities. But, he muffed a punt return.
PRACTICE BALL GOES TO... Kellen Davis. He looked terrific on the field, under the lights. His blocking has looked good, but he's looked even better as a pass catcher. He knows how to use his length, and he's got excellent speed for his size.
