Several quick thoughts on the Chicago Bears’ 37-30 preseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
One of my faithful readers that posts comments (please remind me which one you were…) noted that last year the Bears were 3-0 in the preseason, which had no bearing on the regular season. So let’s hope this 0-3 start is not indicative of the 2008 season. If only that were the case.
As Brian Urlacher told Pam Oliver, he is disgusted with the defense’s performance. And he should be, they looked horrible. Like they didn’t want to be there tuning up for the season. Aside from some nice goal line stops and spirited play from Dusty Dvoracek…
Kyle Orton to Rashied Davis…wow. 2 touchdown passes, almost 3. Good for them. Why am I not confident in the offense? At least the line did look better than last week. And nice run by Kevin Jones.
Speaking of Pam Oliver, she asked Kyle Orton “what will it take for the Bears’ quarterback position to regain some of its luster?” Pam? Luster? Hasn’t the luster of Sid Luckman, who last played in 1950 and was the last true Chicago Bears franchise quarterback, dulled a little by now?
Troy Aikman commented on Jimmy Johnson: “When Jimmy knew he blew a high draft pick, he admitted his mistake and moved on.” So, what will Jerry Angelo do with Dan Bazuin, Michael Okwo and Mark Bradley? It kills me to think of the three offensive linemen Angelo passed for those guys.
