Wow, what a preseason game to watch last Saturday against the Giants. Yes, again just a preseason game, but as I’ve told others I had to continually rub my eyes and make sure it was indeed the Bears offense I was watching. As Mike Mulligan writes, it was hard to not get excited.
One potentially sour note, to my simply from a standpoint of depth, it appears that Dusty Dvoracek will go on injured reserve for the season for the fourth time in his four-year career. Dvoracek tore his right ACL against the Giants. I do like Dusty, but by mid-season last year I wondered if he was really the right guy to be starting at the nose. Tackle Anthony Adams replaced Dvoracek and outperformed him when the latter was lost in week 12.
But every man is needed, so Dvoracek’s loss will be felt from a depth standpoint.
