The Bears are still not getting any love after spanking the Colts.

Last I heard they are a 3 point dog to the Panthers. As long as the Bears don't turn the ball over and Babich uses the same scheme on defense, I don't see the Panthers having much of a chance.

It's currently the end of the 1st quarter vs Carolina. The Bears should OWN this game if they'd stop the Block in the Back penalty on punt returns.

Between the penalties and Olsen losing the ball twice, I am surprised we held on as late as we did. The offense looked pretty good early then resorted to its dismal self late. Forte and the defense are still looking real good, and Lloyd was catching the ball pretty good as well.

Not too shabby of a start. A solid win against Indy, and a narrow road loss to a good panthers teams is better than I expected. I wasn't surprised by the line, panthers are a good squad and it's their home turf.

Yep, they need some work but that was a given. I'm optimistic that a 9-7 or 10-6 season is reasonably attainable.

9-7 should be automatic, as long as we don't have any major injuries but 10-6 should get it done.

The Bears gave that game to Carolina. Of course, Olsen's fumbles did us in. Not to mention a 2nd and 1 late in the game and then the bears run 2 pass plays in a row to set up an obvious running down on 4th and 1 only to hand to the FB..wtf? that should of been forte's ball all the way. Turner looked questionable in this game after looking great week 1. that's what happens in a loss. The Heat Index was a 108 degrees and those tricky Panthers had Chicago wear their basically black dark navy blue jerseys. i am sure that effected them down the stretch. either way, if orton hits booker on that bomb or olsen only has 1 fumble instead of 2...it's a Bears W.

I think the Bears will be OK, however a big test is this weekend's game agaisnt the Bucs. The Panthers have a solid D but so does Tampa Bay. If Orton does not rebound at Soldier Field, and the offense falters, I'll have my doubts if this team can win the division.

I think the bears are gonna be good this year. i predict 11-5. They easily beat the colts, and lost a tough road game at carolina that olsen gave away.
