Pretty sure that title's going to the Eagles, unfortunately. Again.

Chicago WR corps is looking deadly and versatile.

-Big guys: Marshall and Jeffery
-Reliable slot: Bennett
-Blazing fast after the catch: Hester and Knox (if he comes back)
-Pass catching RB: Forte

Tempting, but personally, I know the hours I'd put into it would be better spent on other things. You guys should do it though.

Well they were going up against the Redskins' secondary, so they are not as good as they looked. satisfied.gif That said, I think the Bears are the second-best team in the NFC. Cutler is a very good QB, a step below the top QBs (Rodgers, Brees, Brady, E. Manning, Roethlisberger) and probably somewhere in the 6-10 range.

Imagine where the Bears would be if they had kept Greg Olsen. (Traded for a 3rd round pick!?!?!!!!)

Colts look better thus far than I expected. Luck shows promise.

The Pats got the Olympic gold medal sprinter (4x100) from UFL. If he can actually last in football (he's a bit undersized at 5'11" 190) he should be extremely fun to watch.

He's more like 5'7" 175 and he only ran in the prelims for the 4x100 but still faster than like 99% of all football players in the NFL.

Ah, you're right. I am completely misremembering his background. He's going to get eaten in pro football at 175, holy shit.

As a Seahawks fan I can't help feeling a bit giddy right now. I know it's just the preseason, but the defense is looking great and Russell Wilson is the early steal of the draft.

Dilfer has drank the Koolaid

It's not something anybody's had any real practice doing, talking about the Bears' offense in superlatives. To say it's a first might not even be an exaggeration. At the end of a conversation the other day with Ron Jaworski, who has been paying close attention to the Bears for 40 years, the first 15 as an opposing NFL quarterback, I asked him the last time he recalled the Bears' offense being this potent. Jaworski paused, laughed and finally said, "You're taxing my memory."

It's a season that will begin like few, if any, others ... the defense likely pretty good but the offense, even with questions about the offensive line, a monster, a powerhouse. Trent Dilfer, like Jaworski a quarterback-turned-ESPN-broadcast analyst, said: "We're going to be talking about the Bears' offense a lot. They'll be on everybody's radar, a hot-button topic. They'll do some awesome stuff, probably roll some people. Seriously, I think they'll run some people over."

Like everybody else who has paid a speck of attention to the Bears this summer, Dilfer and Jaws see Brandon Marshall, Earl Bennett, rookie Alshon Jeffery and Devin Hester as being about the best group of pass-catchers the team has had in forever. And it's not only the addition of Marshall and Jeffery, but re-casting Hester from a No. 1, which he surely was not in this day and age, to what looks to be a change-of-pace defense wrecker. How many defenses are even capable of covering Marshall, Forte, Hester and Bennett if Cutler has time to find them?
