Chicago Bears Hats and Football Jerseys

Chicago Bears Team Report
The Bears fast early start came against a comparatively weak schedule and was fueled by an opportunistic defense that forced turnovers in bunches and scored nine touchdowns, masking the weaknesses of an offense that had record setting wider receiver Brandon Marshall and not much else.

Both cornerbacks Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings made the Pro Bowl. Tillman forced an NFL record 10 fumbles and was as effective against some of the league's bigger and better receivers (like Calvin Johnson) as anyone. Jennings led the NFL with nine interceptions, making huge plays on the ball that he had failed to make in the past. Defensive end Julius Peppers also made the Pro Bowl on the strength of 11.5 sacks, as did tackle Henry Melton, who had six sacks and played the run well.

Marshall set franchise records with 117 receptions and 1,508 yards to go with 11 touchdowns. Running back Matt Forte over came three sprains of his right ankle and an offensive line that was in flux all season to rush for 1,094 yards. But he was not as big a part of the passing game as he had been in years past, and that was to the detriment of the offense. Jay Cutler, supposedly the franchise quarterback, never developed a rapport with any receiver other than Marshall. It hurt that promising rookie Alshon Jeffery missed time with hand and knee injuries.
