Bears Win Pre-Season Opener

The Bears started off the pre-season with a win over the Buffalo Bills. The story of the game was the running game as Marion Barber and Kahlil Bell had great nights. The Bears depth on the defensive line showed up also as even the third and fourth stringers were able to apply pressure. Here are the news and notes from the fourth quarter. Notes from the rest of the game are listed below.

- Bears starting to show a pass rush in fourth quarter.

- After two big plays in a row by Bell, Chester Taylor should be very concerned.

- Chris Adams having a nice game for the Bears as an undrafted free agent. For all the talk about Dane Sanzenbacher, Adams is having a much better night.

- Bears coaching staff even experimenting during pre-season going on fourth down. Very Un-Bear like.

-Robbie Gould in mid-season form. Nailed a 45 yarder. Missed a 56 yarder in first half but was very close.

- Bears defensive line is so deep. Even the third and fourth strings are dominating. Then again if Wootton and Harrison injuries are serious they could need them.

-Undrafted Rookie Mike Holmes with a nice interception. First turnover forced in the game by the Bears.

- Harvey Unga is large and in charge when running the football. Just carried the pile seven yards from point of contact.

- You know there are too many players when you start seeing duplicate numbers.

-Buffalo with nine sacks on the evening.

-Robbie Gould misses from 34 yards. Now 1-3 on the night.
