Can you say 2-0
September 20, 2010 - Terri Castelaz
I’m still doing the victory dance after the Bears win against the Cowboys on Sunday.
Unfortunately I didn’t get to see the game, but I have watched the highlights and read comments regarding the game.
Many writers were very impressed with the Bears on Sunday. Highlights include Jay Cutler's performance. He completed 21 of 29 passes for 277 yards with three touchdowns, no interceptions and a 136.7 passer rating, his highest in 18 career starts with the Bears. Cutler was under pressure early. Coaches made key adjustments after the Cowboys overwhelmed the Bears with their pass rush for most of the first quarter and left tackle Chris Williams exited with a hamstring injury on the game’s opening possession.
Also the defense stepped up, intercepting Tony Romo twice and making a lot of big hits, including in the secondary.
Safety Chris Harris said in an interview that they’ve (defense) kind of implemented that Monsters of the Midway and are trying to bring it back.
The one area that the Bears struggled in was on third down and also need to work on the run. But overall received praise from almost everyone.
The true test of where the Bears stand comes next Monday night. They will be playing the Packers, (who are supposed to be one of the best teams in the league).
I’m keeping the faith that they are fired up and will beat the Packers on Monday.
