Bears vs. Jets Recap

The Bears played in New York and won for the second straight week. The beloved pitched a shut out running their record to 9-1 by the score of 10-0. This game was all about defense with neither team scoring in the first half. The Jets kept the Bears in check with a constant stream of blitzers and the Bears kept the Jets in check because they are so damn good.

ON OFFENSE:
After watching the Jets fluster Tom Brady into turnovers last week, Ron Turner kept it simple today and kept the ball on the ground most of the game. Jones ran the ball 23 times for 121 yards and Benson added 10 carries for 51 more yards. While they moved the chains and kept the clock running, it was Mark Bradley that put the points on the board when he turned a 6 yard catch into a 57 yard TD scramble. The Jets were blitzing their safeties all game long and all it took was one broken tackle to spring free. The most important stat is that the Bears didn't turn the ball over once although Jones almost lost a fumble that was turned over upon review.

Grossman played a smart if not spectacular game. He finished 11/22 for 119 yards and 1 TD. He struggled recognizing the Jets defenses but the Jets deserve credit for their defensive plan and execution. Grossman rarely had much time to throw the ball even though the OL played a very good game. The Jets got most of their pressure from LBers and safeties running over or around our RB's. Rex took care of the ball and picked up a few key third downs through the air.

Mark Bradley led the Bears in receiving catching 4 balls for 80 yards. Berrian played sparingly and looked timid with his rib injury so it was important that Bradley step up and make plays. Moose had a nice 28 yard catch in the middle of the field.

They only put 10 points on the board but it was a smart plan well executed against a team they knew couldn't beat their defense.

ON DEFENSE:
The Bears D threw their second shut out of the year. The Jets were able to move the ball with short out routes but couldn't keep drives alive when reaching Bear territory. The Jets had trouble establishing the run getting 108 yards on 30 attempts with 28 yards coming on a reverse from Tim Dwight. The Bears came away with two key INTs to stop Jet drives that were in scoring position. Urlacher made another athletic play over the middle of the end zone to stop one drive. The other stopped when Alex Brown scared Pennington into throwing a floater to Nathan Vasher.

The entire secondary played an excellent game. They gave up the short routes but made solid tackles and refused to give up a big play. Charles Tillman left the game for a series or two after getting knocked out by teammate Todd Johnson. Luckily he is all right and does not have a concussion.

Mark Anderson and Adewale Ogunleye each scored sacks on Pennington. That brings rookie Anderson up to 8.5 sacks for the year. He is really playing outstanding and in contention for defensive rookie of the year.

ON SPECIAL TEAMS:
Maynard had another subpar day punting as he always does in NY. Gould connected on his only attempt, a chipshot from the 2 yard line. Coverage teams were excellent. Hester did a good job of not fielding punts that he shouldn't. He had one return for 7 yards.

OVERALL:
Although many fans will probably be concerned about the offense, I think it was a brilliant performance and plan against an inferior team. The Bears protected the ball and played field position football. I am impressed that Ron Turner could reign in his big play happy plans for an entire game. The final game of this three game trip on the east coast will be the toughest. The New England Patriots await the Bears next week after ripping the Packers in a 35-0 rout. It should be a tough close game and it will take the Bears best football to win.

you didn't say enough about todd johnson! god bless him! he saved that game. i heard the announcer say that he had six tackles and five assists and it was only the middle of the 2nd quarter! That's just not right when the secondary is making all of your tackles... bear 54 where are you?

and thank you to chad pennington for throwing the ball to the receiver in his end zone with three bears in front of him. (and a kudos for urlacher's read on that interception.)

oh, and i hate lance briggs. he's a douchbag. i counted seven missed tackles for him, and all he does is follow urlacher to the ball.... i also hate devon hester ever since his first bear punt return when he bobbled the catch. he's over-hyped.

"the Bears kept the Jets in check because they are so damn good."

righteous!

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

pretty strong words. lance briggs is an excellent linebacker, pro bowl selection last year. He plays very tough football. Hester is a hit or miss, but give him time, he will turn out all right...

the guy that needs to be given props is marc anderson. This guy is amazing.

did anybody hear if adawadleye is okay?

Flinchy I have no idea how you wrote so much about this game.

This was a preseason playbook or a Kyle Orton game.

I am not sure but I think they can clinch the division with a win next week.

well with a win next week we clinch a tie in the division with 5 games to play... basically the worst we could finish would be 10-6 and green bay and the vikings being 4-6, only one of them can finish 10-6 (being that have to play each other one more time) and we already have at least a tie with them if we were to loose out. so basically, one of those teams has to win out and we have to win just one more, and then it finishes based on division record, which we would be only 3-3 (if we lost out, which we won't)

so while technically we need two victories, OR a lose by both the packers and the vikings and one victory for ourself.

I think it's safe to say the NFC North is ours. It's also pretty damn likely that the NFC #1 seed is ours as well. The only challenges should come from Dallas or Carolina. The big question is can we win in the playoffs? A lot of that answer is going to ride on Rex Grossman and staying healthy the rest of the year. When Rex plays well, we can beat anyone.


This week should be a good test for Rex. New England usually does a good job stopping the run and disquising their coverage schemes. Rex will likely have to make good decisions and throws for us to win.

Todd Johnson played well but I still think he is the weak spot of our D. He is terrible in pass coverage and puts his head down too much while tackling. Against good players that is a sure fire way to miss a tackle.

Lance Briggs played a good game. I don't see the missed tackles you mention. The only knock on Briggs is that he freelances on occasion and gets out of position. He's probably not worth the money he is going to get in free agency after this year, but he is a very good player with speed and good tackling skills.
