The Chicago Bears finished the 2009 preseason 3-1 after beating the Cleveland Browns 26-23. Time to get ready for Green Bay, who surely will provide a huge test for the Bears defense.
Tainting the Bears victory were injuries to running back Kevin Jones and starting corner Zackary Bowman, who had just come back from an injured hamstring. Bowman intercepted a pass on the first play of the game, and I thought “Man we need this guy, but when will get get hurt next?” My question was answered on the second series of the game when one could visibly see Bowman pull up with a re-injured hamstring on a play in which he wasn’t even involved.
Mike Mulligan writes that the game revealed that the Bears still have flaws. Granted, yes, but at least we know one of the flaws isn’t at the quarterback position as usual.
