After watching the Chicago Bears fall at home to the Houston Texans, one thing was quite obvious. As good as the Bears’ vaunted defense is, it will not be enough to win them a Super Bowl in 2012. The offense will have to pick things up to at least keep opposing defenses honest. But with the questionable status of embattled quarterback Jay Cutler, and the inability to stick with the run game at times, the Bears will need to do something on offense if they are to seriously contend for the Lombardi Trophy this season.
One other thing we learned last night is that the Soldier Field faithful are less than pleased with Chicago tight end, Kellen Davis. Whether it was his drop or failure to make a big play, the Bears’ fans booed him mercilessly. Right now, I am sure that Chicago is regretting the decision to let Greg Olsen go to the Carolina Panthers. While the former Miami Hurricanes standout never became quite the player many had projected coming out of college, Olsen was a far more serviceable tight end than is Davis.
