Bears vs. Panthers Recap

The Bears defense showed up on Sunday more fired up than i've ever seen them and they led the way to a 13-3 win over the Carolina Panthers. That makes 6 wins in a row and ends all the talk about how the Bears haven't beaten any good football teams. It's obvious all of the Bears knew this game was their ticket to respect around the league and they showed up big time.

On Offense:
Kyle Orton had a very impressive day. He looked ultra-calm in the pocket and was finding different receivers all day long. Unfortunately, his wide outs were dropping a lot of passes on him. I counted at least 5 dropped passes that should have been caught, including one by Moose that would have been a TD. Justin Gage played very well catching everything thrown his way and managing to get himself open most of the day. T. Jones ran the ball 25 times for 87 yards against a very good defense. But perhaps the best performance of the game was turned in by the offensive line. They held a very talented DL in check all day and gave Orton time to throw and Jones room to run.

On Defense:
Absolutely and A+ performance by the entire defense. The only offense Carolina could muster was a few passes over the middle to Steve Smith. They could not run the ball and they could not get a big play TD pass. The DL was smothering registering 8 sacks of Jake Delhomme! The LB's were all over any running play and covered all the short routes like a blanket. The secondary did a very good job with Nate Vasher stepping up for 2 INT's that set up 10 points for the Bears. Credit the entire D with a great game, but the DL in particular played very well. Brown, Ogunleye, Harris, Johnson and even Haynes were all over the backfield and disrupting just about every play.

Overall, it was the best game the Bears have played in many seasons. They made a very good team look like absolute crap. Although the Offense only put up 13 points, it was clear to me that they could have put up more if needed. If the Bears can muster this kind of performance in the playoffs, they should make some noise in the post season. They are not a superbowl ready team yet, but after Sunday's performance it's clear that they are not far off. Go Bears!

I was just having this discussion with my wife sunday morning at breakfast. She was talking about how they were going to go down in flames today and I had to tell her that we have been underestimating them just like we did the sox. They are a good team and will prove it to us. Good write up flincy. Your prose is excallent as always

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Bears D.. They had a comparison on Sportscenter last night, they have allowed less points than the 85' team at the same point in the season..

They have not allowed a TD since NO.... right?? I think they are getting better too...

ill be happy when the offense can score a touchdown a game without the assistance of the defense. 10 of those points yesterday are thanks to NV.

who else was paranoid everytime Carolina punted??

The Bears still run the ball very well. Every week Orton is getting a little better. The O-line was awesome, they should beat the shi! out of each other more often.

Bears have what it takes to keep themselves in games. Don't forget what kind of similar teams won the Superbowl, Tampa Bay, Baltimore.....

the bears defense yesterday played with enthusism, and truth be told the only team that truely scares me is the Colts. It's there year... And while I don't think the bears are ready this year, on any given sunday, anything can happen... And this years team is a team full of play makers...

The defense looks Great! I'm still not sold on our offense/passing game yet. If Muhamad would have caught those 4 pases he dropped, one of them for a TD, Orton's #'s would have looked much better.

They only scored 13 points and like Jim said, that was due more to the defense than offense. We need to score 21 points a game or more before I feel "comfortable".

No matter what though, they are 7-3, and in 1st place, and the Packers still SUCK!!!
