Bears Vs. Giants Postgame Reaction: Chicago Still Has Some Work To Do

Despite their 20-17 preseason victory over the New York Giants, the Chicago Bears still have some work to do as the season quickly approaches.

In Melissa Isaacson's piece for ESPNChicago.com, starting quarterback Jay Cutler indicated that while there was some progress made Friday night, there is still plenty of work to do with week one on the way.

"We're heading in the right direction. We just need to clean up a few things."

Head coach Lovie Smith was a little disappointed with the Bears' play in the first half, knowing that this was the last time the first team would have significant game experience before the season opener on Sept 9.

"Your third preseason game is important because you know you're going to play the guys a lot more and hopefully you get in a few more situations to prepare you for the season. But starting out in the first half, we didn't play as well as we needed to in all three phases."

And while there are things that do need some work, wide receiver Brandon Marshall knows that it isn't as bad as everyone thinks.

"It's never as good as you think and never as bad as you think. So we'll watch film and learn from it and get better and hopefully have a great week of practice and be where we need to be come Sept. 9."
