As Week 7 in the NFL season came to an end last evening, the Chicago Bears picked up their fifth victory of the young season and sit atop the NFC North with a 5-1 record. It was a hard-fought battle against the division rival Detroit Lions. It was a perfect autumn evening for football, and the Bears did not disappoint the home crowd at Soldier Field in Chicago.The Bears have had some bumps along the road so far this season. The offense has shown some weaknesses, both in personnel and internal communication. The offensive line has some sub-par talent starting and there are consistently too many timeouts wasted due to slow play calling. Those are the downsides of that offense. Fortunately for Chicago, there are plenty of positives to speak of as well. The Bears welcomed in offseason acquisition Brandon Marshall with open arms, as the Bears have lacked a star wide receiver for decades. The reunion of he and former teammate Jay Cutler had the potential for great success, and it seems as...

Was Ndamukong Suh’s hit on Jay Cutler a dirty play?

There is no debating that the Chicago Bears thoroughly dominated the Detroit Lions on Monday night.  Even though the Chicago Bears only won by six points, anyone who watched the game would agree that it felt more like a 30 point blowout than a game decided by less than a touchdown.  Either way, the Chicago Bears won the game, but not without Jay Cutler suffering bruised ribs after...

Marshall not happy with Lions' Suh

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall isn't happy with Ndamukong Suh and his violent play on Monday night. Although the Lions defensive tackle was not flagged and will not be fined for the controversial play on quarterback Jay Cutler, Marshall took his rage to Twitter after the game. "A Suh. What u did to Jay wasn't cool. Great players don't have to do that,"...

Chicago Bears offense struggles in 13-7 win over Detroit Lions

The game plan for the Chicago Bears on offense was to establish the run to open up the passing attack that would take advantage of a depleted Detroit Lions secondary.  The run game was established but Jay Cutler once again struggled with his accuracy throughout the game.  Prior to the sack by Ndamukong Suh that led to the bruised ribs, Cutler was 10 for 18 for a 55 completion percentage...
