For those who doubted the Bears... take that! The Bears dominated all three phases of the game. This game was over by half time. The Bears offense looked like a polished, well-oiled machine; the defense looked too fast and intimidating ; and the special teams pinned the Falcons deep in their own territory.
Jay Cutler threw for 312 yards and Matt Forte accounted for 158 total yards. The wide receiver group seems to be a deep unit as all five receivers had a reception. As far as a true number one target, from the looks of it, this group will rotate according to the situation. Cutler was dropped for four sacks, however, the offensive line kept him upright for most of the game.
The Rush Men dominated the line of scrimmage as they registered five sacks. Henry Melton had seven (yes, seven) quarterback hits and sacked Matt Ryan twice. Julius Peppers also recorded two sacks, recovered a fumble and caused Ryan to fumble as he was chasing after him. Brian Urlacher made an interception that only he could have made, lead the team in tackles and recorded a fumble and ran it in for a touchdown.
New Bears punter, Adam Podlesh helped the Bears win the field position battle as he pinned the Atlanta defense deep in their own territory. Robbie Gould was as good as gold as he was 3-3 in field goals.
@PKtheDJ Thru one half of football, I can't complain about a single phase of the #Bears. Even the #4thPhase. Stadium is crankin'!
