Bears vs Detroit

<p> </p>

<p> </p>

<p>To start off with, that was a good call by the officials. The same issue came up during the Virginia Tech/ Boise State game. The ball cannot be used to retain possession. Had Calvin Johnson had his hand beneath the ball it would have been a touchdown with .24 seconds remaining. But it wasn't and the Bears were able to hold on to the lead.</p>

<p>The Chicago Bears defense looked like the defense of old. Julius Peppers showed why we pay him the big bucks by sacking Matthew Stafford, forcing the fumble and knocking Stafford out of the game in the same play. Brian Urlacher is healthy and flying across the field making tackles and sacking the quarterback. Lance Briggs made an amazing play shooting the gap and basically taking the ball before Shaun Hill could hand the football off. That being said, the Chicago Bears offense didn't look that great. The offensive line needs to push hard off the ball in order to open up holes for our running game. Jay Cutler has a bunch of time in the pocket but the coverage was decent down field today. Any day of the week, I would rather see Cutler hold the ball and take a sack than try and force it and throw a pick. He did well today with over 300 yards passing, two TDs and only one INT. </p>

<p>It was a tough game to watch because of the stress. Two goal line stands by the Detroit Lions defense was killer. The Bears killed the Lions in all statistical categories, but still almost lost the game. Hopefully next week the Bears will turn the ball over less against the Dallas Cowboys, but overall a win is a win. They are on top of the division and already hold a game lead on the Minnesota Vikings, which is huge. Good start to hopefully a good season.</p>
