Bears open preseason tomorrow against Dolphins

The Chicago Bears plan on getting back to smash mouth football and it all begins with their running game and back Matt Forte.

“When you run the ball, it’s more like an attack feeling,” Forte said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “They like smash-mouth football, where you can bloody somebody’s nose and run and hit people. And then as a running back, you can get rhythm and kind of wear on defenses and wear them down, where that pass rush will be a lot less harder in the fourth quarter.”

With the return of the run game to the offense, it is less likely you will see quarterback Jay Cutler having to throw 50 times a game.

“I think myself, the rest of the quarterbacks and the rest of the offense for that matter really like what we’re doing right now,” Cutler told reporters Tuesday. “We really enjoy the coaches, being around them. There’s a lot of energy from this group. So it’s fun day-in and day-out.”

Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your Chicago Bears~!

Slauson honored Tuesday afternoon

Chicago Bears Guard/Center Matt Slauson was honored after being awarded the Ed Block Courage award, an honor that the players vote on.  They are asked to recognize a peer who exhibits professionalism and dedication while being a positive role model in the community.

The Bears have a lot of decisions to make concerning the upcoming draft.  After the hiring of John Fox as the new Head Coach of the team, it was clear that going into the season with Jay Cutler leading the team is not a viable option, so the possibility of drafting University of Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is becoming more and more fathomable.

 

Bears defeat Vikings

It has taken a while but Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is finally feeling good about things as evidenced by his three touchdown passes that helped to knock off the Minnesota Vikings 13-21 last Sunday.

“When you string together a few losses in that fashion, people want answers,” Bears Guard Kyle Long said in a radio show. People want change. What we need to realize is the only change that needs to happen is we need to change our attitude, and we need to figure out how to quit making mistakes and start playing to a higher level.”

This weekend, the Bears will have the opportunity to get closer to .500 as they take on the  Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that demolished the Washington Redskins 27-7 last weekend.

Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available for this weekends game so be sure to get yours now and help cheer on your Chicago Bears.
