We are coming off a huge win for us and will carry the momentum into our seasom opener at home. For all our struggles the last few years we have always been very tough to beat at home. Our team grew up alot in that win at Chicago. You guys are starting some rookies in key positions and they will be experiencing their first taste of the NFL on the road. Our crowd and stadium is ver difficult for the visitors.
We also will have a much better showing on offense and will have a better game plan snce we now know Rogers won't be playing. Much of our passing games was planned around Rogers so when he went down the Team was stunned and it really took us 3 quarters to adjust, but we did and were able to put together a game winning drive for a TD.
Our rookies played pretty good for their first game, but should be much more comfortable now that they have gotten a little taste of live NFL action. Playing in soldier field is no piece of cake. KJ missed some huge holes running the ball and should have a breakout game. You saw ROY's catch and he will see more balls this week. He caught 4 passes for 64 yards by the way and got a pass interference in the endzone to setup a score too.
Our young LBs played very well. Lehman caused a huge fumble and our defense played very well causing 5 turnovers and getting 2 sacks.
Also I think the Bears have a very good defense and really don't think we will play too many teams with a better DL and group of LBs. They were really fast and blitzed almost every play. Our OL did a really good job only giving up 1 sack. We lost our best WR and CB during the first 2 series and still gutted out the win.
That is why I am optimistic!
