Thanks to the Packers, the Bears get their revenge against the Seahawks. The Bears shouldn't have lost that game but they did and it's payback time.
Against the Seahawks, the Bears called 12 rushing plays and Cutler threw 39 times. They were 0-12 on third down. The defense didn't fare any better as they failed to register a sack and a turnover. Robbie Gould even missed a rare field goal. Despite playing one of their worst games this season, the Seahawks beat the Bears by a field goal.
Early in the season, the Bears were still trying to find their identity as a football team. Sure the defense had resurrected the Monsters of the Midway brand of football, something that Lovie Smith wanted to get back to but offensively they were lost.
When the Bears brought in Mike Martz, everyone was expecting a high-flying offense that moved up and down the field with little or no effort by Jay Cutler hitting his wide receivers for huge chunks of yards.
Little did we know, or maybe we did, the Bears didn't have enough protection up front and the wide receivers, as a group, were still developing. The Bears have since been an improved football team.
Since then there is more balance to the offense and because of this, the offensive is much improved. The defense is still dominant, can still rush the quarterback and force turnovers. On special teams, teams are again now fearful of Devin Hester.
The Bears will not overlook this game as they are coming off a bye. Lovie Smith always gets this team ready after a bye.
