    Anyway, we'll see how good this team is in the next 2 weeks. Just splitting with Houston & San Fran would make me happy.

    bears will always get criticized no matter what. just in the preseason all the top sportswriter said bears will be lucky if they finish 8-8.

    I don't expect the bears to be 15-1 and to win next two games. At the end of the day, bears defense is the best this season in NFL

    I'm not sure why people doubt it at this point.

    The Bears D has always forced turnovers under Lovie. Sure, it may not continue at this rate, but they will still force plenty before the season's over.

    Jay Cutler has to learn a new offensive system every ****ing year in chicago.

    This is year one in this system for him. Offense will catch up eventually but this defense is the most amazing thing I have ever seen.

    That's what I meant.

    The only thing stopping the Bears at this point is their offense. I think their struggles can be related to not just their bad O-line, but also learning a new system. They have too much talent to continue to struggle. If they can get it together, coupled with this defense, I think they are the class of the NFL.

    Very solid team. Offensive issues but doesn't mean they can't work it out. Talented WR and RB...

    Only problem I have with this thread is calling them the Class of the NFC/NFL... They've had a cupcake schedule to start. 3 out of the next 4 games will be telling for this team. Houston, San Fran, Seattle.... That's not counting 4 more divisional games that are always tough. 2x Minny, GB and Det..

    They have a very promising start but look to the next 4 weeks before we really evaluate this team.

    Bears fan here, and I do think the Bears are very good. If the offense can get more consistent we could possibly go far.

    But that offense is a question mark to say the least, largely because of the poor offensive line play.

    I have a feeling the Bears will get beat this week against the Texans. I certainly hope that doesn't happen but I can definitely see it. Maybe it can serve as a wake up call to the offense if it does happen.

    I was a bit skeptical on the Bears early on but now I believe they are pretty damn good. I still like the Packers a little more just because I think their offense is better. But the Bears offense continues to improve so if they continue making progress then they will be the team to beat for sure. That D is crazy scary good in the way they can score more than some offenses.

    Since Lovie Smith became coach of the Chicago Bears the Bears lead the league in takeaways by a wide margin... When it's happened for 8 and a half seasons, it's not really a fluke... The sample size is large enough

    I'm not sure yet. I think the packers, bears, 49ers, Giants, and Falcons are all capable of being very good. The Bears aren't playing their best football yet. If the offense can get comfortable in time for the playoffs they will be very tough to beat.

    this team is for real. not sure if they are the class of the nfl, but they are damn good. could make an argument for the texans, bears, falcons, and 49ers right now. giants, broncos, packers, and steelers also right behind them. ravens still winning as well despite no lewis or webb. i am excited (living in illinois and living with a bunch of bears fans) to watch the bears these next few weeks. texans and the 49ers are damn good teams, and will show what this bears team is really made of

    Their D is playing like the class of the NFL but im not so sure about the team as a whole. I do think they will win the division and probably get the second seed IMO. Just hoping GB grabs a wild card spot at this point




    There you go thumper

    Defense is the best in the NFL. The offense is not quite playing up to par yet. Long season though, they can get those issues straightened out before the games that matter. Can't wait to see them against Houston/SF....should be good.
