Good morning and welcome to Bear Bites, your rundown of Bears news. Today, the news is not pleasant: the defense isn't buying the hype, Izzy thinks one blocked FG wasn't enough, Hanie didn't mess up, Barber helped the Broncos comeback, and more Bears news. The defense is still not buying into Tebow-mania. (ESPN Chicago) Israel Idonije is kicking himself for not blocking the Broncos game-winning field goal. (Chicago Tribune) Caleb Hanie avoided any major mistakes on Sunday, which is a low bar to hurdle. (Chicago Sun-Times) Tim Tebow will be credited with the comeback, but he couldn't have done it without help from Marion Barber. (Chicago Tribune) Hanie was named one of the weekend's most valuable players for being a good teammate ... (Shutdown Corner) ... while Barber made the least valuable list. (Shutdown Corner) Rumors of Mike Martz leaving are dying down. (ESPN Chicago) Follow Grizzly Detail on Twitter.
