Bears Catch Favre in the Pocket

The Chicago Bears won their game against the Green Bay Packers in the first half. There was no question who was the dominant team even as the Packers started scoring in the second half. Brett Favre looked terrible, throwing interceptions and spending way too much time in the pocket hunting for receivers. The result of his hesitation in the pocket was getting sacked by Tank Johnson and Alex Brown multiple times. This Bears fan enjoyed the game immensely but couldn’t help but wonder why Favre hasn’t retired. Nobody would deny his greatness but they may forget if they have to watch a repeat of the 2005 Packers season.

Green Feeds Bears Win

Mike Green was feeling pretty bad after his poor performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He stepped up and put forth an outstanding performance against the Atlanta Falcons. He was responsible for two defensive interceptions and Green didn’t miss as many tackles as he had the previous Sunday. He put a powerful hit on Falcon Michael Jenkins that caused the ball to fly free and land in the hands of Nathan Vasher. Mike Green claims:

"I loved that one," Green said with a smile. "I was reading the quarterback's eyes.”

Not even Michael Vick could get a game going for the Falcons and the Bears defense was the dominant factor in that failure.

Orton Secure Once Again

Despite the Chicago Bears loss to the Steelers on Sunday, there will be no change at the quarterback position for the Bears. Kyle Orton will continue to start after he threw for 207 yards of offense in the game and showed improvement over recent appearances. Orton even missed some wide open receivers that game, yet it was still an improvement. We have been winning games but Orton had been floundering against teams like the Green Bay Packers and many people thought that coach Lovie was going to replace him. But the team’s official site announces he will be staying where he is for now.

Berrian Comeback a Winner

The Chicago Bears expertly stomped the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field this Sunday. Bernard Berrian finally got to play this week and he showed up to play a great game. Bernard had been out with an injured thumb that obviously healed well because his performance on the field was stellar. The Bears got quite a few first downs off catches by wide receiver Bernard Berrian. He caught two passes from Kyle Orton that led to two field goals and the win for the Bears. Bernard was given a lot of deep passes and he made big plays out of those chances.
