Chris Harris back in the starting lineup

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Major Wright didn't last long in the starting lineup again.

The oft-injured second-year safety was listed as probable this week. But he is inactive for today's game.

He'll be replaced in the lineup by veteran Chris Harris, who was deactivated for last week's victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

Rookie Chris Conte is still starting at free safety but veteran Brandon Meriweather is active, as well.

Other inactives for the Bears include right tackle Gabe Carimi, defensive tackle Matt Toeaina, receiver Earl Bennett, defensive end Mario Addison and defensive end Corey Wootton.

Bennett, Carimi and Toeaina may return coming out of the bye.

For the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, cornerback Myron Lewis, running back LaGarrette Blount, center Jeff Faine and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy are inactive. The latter three are key players for the Bucs.

D.J Moore is becoming one of the leagues better nicklebacks, great pick at the end of the game to seal the deal for the Bears! The Bears got some great nickle play from Danieal Manning a couple seasons back, I actually think Moore is better. Moore comes up with some great plays in coverage and knows when to blitz.

I liked the offense for most of the game, they straight up ran it down Tampa's throat early, Forte had another big game, 145 on the ground. Anybody still think the Bears should trade Forte?

The play calling, late in the game, did leave something to be desired? On the original set of first and goal for Chicago late in the game, before Aqib Talib gave Chicago's offense new life with a finger poke to Roy Williams face. The Bears should have ran it 3 times instead of calling these gadget pass plays? When you get down inside the 5, run the ball! With little field to play with, it leaves very little to play with as far as passing routes. If your gonna pass down there, run it a couple times and then hit em with a pass to surprise them, I think that would be more effective.

The passing game was alright for the most part. Roy Williams stepped up, other than that drop he had early. Cutler wasn't as accurate as he has been in weeks past, his completion percentage was in the 50's, and the 2 picks? The first one wasn't really his fault, but the second pick allowed Tampa to get right back in the game, and yes, that one was Cutlers fault. Cutler's gotta clean some of that stuff up if he's ever gonna be an elite quarterback?

And Sean, don't worry about Aqib Talib sneering at you and swearing under his breath, he's just mad because he cost his team the game.....and he did it right in front of the queen!! PAY FORTE!! GO BEARS!!
