Indeed...  the only Bears preseason game I'm able to watch in my area, and will be doing so with full attention.

Can't wait to hear the ESPN talking heads slurp all over Manning while slagging Cutler.  Though I doubt either of those QBs will see much action tonight.

I'd love to see Cutler get to safely play a quarter and keep his Jersey clean and the Gnats pull Manning after 1 series because his is dirty :-)

Guys to watch:
all offensive lineman
ROY WILLIAMS
Gholston (is he good enough to put Wooten on IR)
Paea (he needs to stop standing up at the snap)
Marcus Harrison (unless he can play some DE it will be hard for him to make this team)
Major Wright (we know he can tackle...)
Josh Moore (tackle somebody)
Chris Contie (tackle somebody)
Hurd (we know he can play special teams)
Sanzenbacher and Kris Adams (one of these 2 could make the roster)
Dom DeCicco (can he win the 6th LB spot?)
Khalil Bell (does he take Chester Taylor's job?)
Harvey Unga (does he make the team or is he off to the PS?)
Kyle Adams and Andre Smith (if we keep 4 TEs one of these might stick)

No, same as always they'll talk about our "world class defense" and our shi-tty QB -- even though neither of those is true.

Nope...They will be discussing the 9 first half sacks from last years game and a turnstyle at LT.

How old is your left tackle, Clifton?  35?  Is this the season his knees finally go?

 He missed just a handful of games in 2009 and Rodgers was sacked 50 times.

Yes Chad Clifton is a 12-year pro and 35. The packers are holding him out alot this preseason to reduce the wear on his knees, but he is not a turnstyle at LT.

Its not 2009 and we are coming off a SB win with him as the LT starter. Backing him up is thrid year player T.J. Lang and rookie Derek Sherrod. The packer will be fine. The bears however if webb continues to be a turnstyle are in trouble because no plan B is in place other than a major resuffling of the line.

Based on what I've been reading, Sherrod is not ready for prime time... at least at OT, yet.

Like alot of rookies the owner lockout hurt them. It doesn't bother me in the least bit that a 3rd year player is pushing him to learn.

As a troll on this forum I probably shouldn't even respond to you but I will.  You are mistaken about our plan B for Webb.  No major reshuffling - Omiyale, our starter from last year, would be inserted into the lineup.  Carimi would probably maintain his RT spot.

Webb is just tops on the list of poor performances on the O-Line. Lance Louis anyone....

Why would you need a link on the web?  It is Monday Night Football everyone in America gets the game.  Unless you are stuck at work in which case it sucks to be you!
