Da Bears Written Off
The Tribune is brutal in its coverage of the Bears pre-season game:
- ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Jay Cutler Era in Chicago all but started with a thud.
The Bears' 27-20 loss to the Bills in their exhibition opener Saturday night was supposed to be a sneak peak of what type of firepower Cutler would inject into the offense.
Well, in 14 plays he never marched his team into the end zone, threw a head-scratching floater off his back foot that was picked off by Leodis McKelvin and nearly had another ill-advised throw intercepted by Reggie Corner.
Geez, it's the pre-season! The first pre-season game, for pete's sake. There's a long way to go here, so let's not panic yet.
