Should the Bears be worried after one preseason game? Maybe, I sure am.
Jay Cutler threw six of his ten pass attempts to Devin Hester and threw one interception, but got lucky that he didn’t throw two. Cutler was without starters Matt Forte and Greg Olsen, who sat out to rest.
Anyway, backup QB Caleb Hanie looked solid and lead the offense down the field for a score or two. Hanie connected with third string FB Will Ta’ufo’ou on a second quarter touchdown.
What we don’t understand is that the Bears are running basic plays, they don’t want to go out there and do everything they would in a regular game, but Cutler stunk it up and it was very disappointing.
The pass defense didn’t look so hot either. They allowed Trent Edwards to complete 10 of 10 passes with an offense without Terrell Owens.
I hope the Bears come out strong next week against the Giants because I don’t like to see all of these expectations to be crumbled in one game.
Dez Clark had this to say about the game:
“It wasn’t as bad as I initially thought it would be, we just have to get some of the smaller details down. My expectations were that we were going to play a better game, but it’s the first game, everybody is trying to feel each other out. I don’t think we are that far off, it may have looked like it, but we’re really not.”

We shouldn’t be worried about the first preseason game, but we should want them to come out strong against the Giants next week.
The Bears take on the Giants next Saturday at 8 ET.
