Bear Down: Bears lose the game and Cutler, Clausen to start vs. Seahawks

One word to describe the Bears: sloppy.

 

The Chicago Bears lost yet again, this time to Carson Palmer and the high power offense from Arizona 48-23.  Bears QB Jay Cutler left the game in the second quarter with a hamstring injury and did not return.

Carson Palmer, coming off his second ACL tear in the same knee, threw three touchdowns to Larry Fitzgerald.  Chris Johnson got the start for the Cardinals and ran for 72 yards on 20 carries.

David Johnson took the opening kick-off 109 yards to silence the Soldier Field crowd.  Right off the bat, people were already counting out the Bears for the football game.

Jay Cutler completed his first eight passes for 120 yards before getting picked off. He threw a 48-yard touchdown to Josh Bellamy, his first reception in the NFL.  Bellamy has already been in the league for three years and was wide open on a corner route and took it to the house.cutlerBears

Overall, it was another bad game and a loss for the Chicago Bears.  Now they are 0-2 heading to the home of the 12th man, the Seattle Seahawks.

Seattle has also started 0-2 but they will give the Bears trouble.  Lynch is a top 5 back and that defense is one of the best in the league.  Kam Chancellor is still holding out and his teammates are getting fed up with it.

Going back to the Bears, the start to the season has been nothing but negative.  Kevin White is on the PUP list, Ratliff is suspended and hurt, and Alshon Jeffery has been dealing with a calf injury since camp.  Now, Cutler has a pulled hamstring putting Jimmy Clausen as the starter.

Clausen will start for the Bears as they travel to Seattle.  Seattle’s D-line has players and the Bears O-line really needs to step up.  Kyle Long hurt his hand last week and was in a full hand cast.  It limits him and hopefully it is recovered because the Bears need him this week.Philadelphia Eagles v Chicago Bears

Alshon Jeffery is questionable with that calf. The Bears need him more than ever as backup Jimmy Clausen needs targets to throw to.  Matt Forte will be a big part of the offense this week but passing will be involved too.

Looking at the Bears defense, Jared Allen and Pernell McPhee has been non factors so far, the Bears secondary has been shaky to start, Shea McClellin has been doing good at MLB, and the D-line has been dealing with injury.  This defense has transitioned to a base 3-4 defense and it may be a transition for some players, but that doesn’t stop you from playing the game.  There just looks to be no energy or will to play from this Bears team.

Chicago is waiting for the right group of guys to get it going.  While this is classified by many as a transition year, you still have to go out compete.

This week is really up in the air.  Both teams are looking for their first win in a tough place to play.  Clausen is under center and he needs to step up big time.  This offense is made for guys like him and he needs to take control of this offense.  The Bears may rely on Forte but when he is getting stopped, you will have to pass the ball.

On Sunday, be prepared for short routes for Clausen.  His deep ball is not the best and when he played last year, a lot of slants, screens, and curls.  Clausen can also get out and run so seeing him escape the pocket and getting yards with his feet will be coming.

It’s time to see what the Bears are made of.  The Seahawks are one of the most dominate forces in the league.  This team needs to show up or it could be yet another blowout and sadness for Chicago Bears fans.
