I don't know about anyone else around here, but *I* am starting to get a little excited for this season. Other than the worrisome news that Urlacher has not practiced in six days now, I've got a good feeling about this year. TheSCORE670 reports that Brandon Marshall has been a total "beast" in practice thus far. FINALLY, Cutler will have a decent target to which to throw. The o-line has a lot of work to do, but there is some optimism that Cutler will have SOME protection.

Just a few short weeks!

lol it's the same OL as last year... have fun watching Cutler get smacked around by Suh, Fairley, Vanden Bosch, and Avril twice a year for the foreseeable future.

I believe that "same OL as last year" was still good enough to beat the Lions by 3 touchdowns last time they played. Besides, Gabe Carimi will be back, and adding a first round tackle, plus losing the 7 step drops and the Martz system are all going to help the line improve.

Unquestionably incorrect.

Luke, I have nothing but love and respect for your baseball knowledge. I am going to think of you as the BetterNews of football after this one though.

Yeah, now that Indy has been basically dismantled it's tough to say that with a straight face.

Oh, well. For about a decade there things were different. It was fun while it lasted.

Please. The Bears had only 216 yards of offense in that game. The Bears' offensive line had nothing to do with Scott Linehan calling 66 pass plays when Stafford had a broken finger and threw 4 ints including two pick sixes. When Stafford and Jahvid Best were healthy they handled the Bears pretty well on MNF

Yeah, they're both about due for another early season ending injury aren't they?

Stafford still played with a broken finger*, Cutler didn't.

*and a whole lot better than Caleb Hanie did with a healthy hand

I kind of hope Webb has taken his rightful place on the practice squad by then. I think a blocking sled could have played better on Thursday, at least there wouldn't have been so many drive killing penalties.

Now Jay Cutler looks even more apathetic than usual!

I'm curious as to what Bears fans think about Cutler?
