Red Hot Chicago PeppersPeppers, Bears win shootout game over TB in London 41-34
Not much to say in this one besides there was no defense to be found in the UK for Tampa Bay or Chicago. Bears running back Matt Forte had an OK game, but never truly got going as the Bears were trailing most of the game. and forced to pass. Jay Cutler shined, but fell in love with the deep ball and made a few mistakes he will need to correct if he wants to continue improving. Julius Peppers sack, scoop and score in the 2nd quarter right before halftime was the biggest bright spot on defense for the Bears, who go torched by Josh Freeman all game. "We need to get better defensively. Our weakness is obviously our secondary, and now with Chris (Harris) gone...we will have to come up with something.." said Coach Lovie Smith, then declaring "We will not give up 34 points again this season."
The Bears were given a big blow on Special Teams, Offense and Defense during the trip to England, losing star kick/punt returner and receiver Devin Hester and SS Chris Harris for the remainder of the season. Look for them to sift through the free agent pool and find them replacements at both positions.
GG Zf, good luck rest of season!
