can someone give us a rundown on the Chicago game, and the keys to their victory?

I just saw the score, 41-3, holy guacamole Shocked

They seem to be the best team in the NFC North right now.

Chicago is no joke, they look like a complete team capable of airing it out with anyone and playing stout defense as well.

I still contend that if you can rattle Cutler and knock him around, the offense crumbles. That will be key, getting constant pressure and making him feel uncomfortable as we have seen that once you rattle Cutler, things get ugly.

This pretty much so covers it...

Good…Brandon Marshall showing Bears fans of all ages what a #1 WR looks like…the running game averaging 6.4 YPC…Jay Cutler’s play in the 2nd half…J’Marcus Webb having a clean game…Corey Wootton showing why he was once considered a 1st round pick…Opportunistic D continuing to lead the league in takeaways & defensive TDs…Briggs & Tillman taking back defensive TDs for the 2nd game in a row…Balanced play calling on both sides of the ball…over 500 total yards of offence…under 200 total yards allowed on defence…

Bad…Slow start to the game only really picking up in the 2nd half…Jay Cutler’s play in the 1st half…Alshon's injury...Gabe Carimi’s penalties & sack allowed…the Dline not being as effective rushing the passer in the Jacksonville heat of the 1st half…Hester’s punt & kickoff returns…

Ugly…Watching one of the greatest LBs of all time struggle to overcome injury.

I feel the key to the Jags victory was playing to our level. We really came out flat in the first half. We are able to generate just an insane amount of takeaways right now and shut down the run.

Our defense right now is playing extremely well, but we do have issues with the pass rush from time to time. Run wise you simply can't run on us right now.

Cutler had (or I should say brandon marshall) had a sick second half. They really upped their level of play and moved brandon around in the slot etc. Our protection was extremely solid as well but that Jags D sucks.

Now, that Colts loss doesnt sting as bad seeing as how they took care of the Packers too. Luck looks legit and I think the Colts will be a solid 8-8 team this year. Especially with how bad the Jags and titans appear to be.
