The Chicago Bears defeated the St. Louis Rams 23-6 today at Soldier Field in Chicago. The Bears (2-1) relied heavily on a strong effort from the defense as they applied constant pressure on Rams' quarterback Sam Bradford all day long. It was a slow-paced game, in part because of the shaky officiating by the replacement referees and both offenses playing sub-par for most of the game. Let's go over some key aspects of today's matchup and also take a look at the "hero" and "zero" of the game. The Bears controlled the tempo of this game the entire afternoon. With star running back Matt Forte out with an ankle injury, Michael Bush took his place and had a pretty strong performance. He collected 73 yards from scrimmage and a rushing touchdown. Bush would have liked more yardage in the running game though, with only 55 rushing yards on 18 carries. Jay Cutler did not look very sharp in this game. He was looking to bounce back after a very poor performance in ...

The Chicago Bears relied on a strong defensive effort, limiting the Rams to just two field goals in a resounding 23-6 victory on Sunday. The front four was once again dominant for Chicago sacking Rams QB Sam Bradford six times and allowing the Rams only 160 net yards in the game.
Led by Israel Idonije's 2.5 sacks on the day the front four harassed the third year QB all day...
Sam Bradford absorbed six sacks and Steven Jackson rushed for just 29 yards. The St. Louis offense, so potent the first two weeks, found no holes in Week 3.
The 23-6 loss at Chicago was an uncomfortable flashback to 2011, when the Rams were at the bottom of the NFL with a 12-point scoring average.
The Rams were largely betrayed by a patchwork line minus the projected starter at...
According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Bears head coach Lovie Smith is hopeful that running back Matt Forte will return to practice this week.
Michael Bush only had 18 carries for 55 yards and 1 touchdown during Sunday’s win over the Rams.
While Bush is a good running back, Forte is clearly the better player and once the Bears get him back they’ll be a better team.
It is not the end of the world. The Rams lost to a potential division winner on the road. Remember, the Bears lost 10 days earlier to their division rival. They simply could not lose to the Rams, in this game, at Soldier Field. Fans should not be devastated by this loss.
At the same time, we should not ignore the reasons why they lost. I have not reviewed all of the...

As ugly as this one was, Jay Cutler saw no reason for concern. Sure, the offense struggled in a big way. The defense, however, more than made up for it and the Bears got back to winning.

According to NFL Network’s Stacey Dales, Rams’ RB Steven Jackson is active and will play today vs the Bears. Jackson’s mysterious second half absence in last week’s win over Washington raised red flags as it was not clear whether the veteran was benched following an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty or if he was battling a groin injury. Regardless, Jackson is active and...

This is from John Keim:
"OK, I’m tired of talking about the Rams’ game too. But a couple more things. One reason rookie corner Richard Crawford had success vs. Danny Amendola on the two times he faced him? He’s covered him already. As Crawford prepared at SMU for an all-star game last year, Amendola happened to be on campus and was working out. Crawford was asked...
