Their current record is 5-0 and it is their best start since 1986. Rex Grossman said about the game,' That was a fun game. Anytime you execute like that -- offense, defense, special teams -- anytime you play like that, it's so much fun."
The latest Chicago Bear news is that the national experts have anointed Lovie Smith's (head coach) as the best in the National Football League (NFL). Smith does not seem to be impressed with what the experts have done. 'Once they start giving out trophies after five games, then you start patting yourself on the back,' Smith said. 'We're 5-0 right now, (but) we haven't accomplished any of our goals. We have so much football left to go.
Based statistics so far, you would be very impressed with the team. They are averaging a league-leading 31.2 points a game and have only permitted 7.2 points a game. They won the 5 games by 26,27,2, 31 and 33 points for a total of 120 points, the second largest in the league. They are second to the St. Louis Rams who have 123 points.
'It's hard beating teams by those types of scores in the league,' Smith said. 'All I can say is that we're pleased with where we are. I don't know how it's happened, but it has. I wish they gave out championships after five games, but they don't.'
The latest Chicago Bear news is that defensive end Adewale Ogunleye and defensive end Ian Scott. This has left the Bears team without two starting linemen who could help the league's stingiest defense even stingier.
Ogunleye has been out with a hamstring and has missed most practices the last few weeks. He has been replaced by Israel Idonije. Ian Scott has been replaced by Tank Johnson.
The latest Chicago Bear news is that the team has made some personnel changes. They have claimed defensive Marcus Maxey off waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs and wide receiver Airese Currie has become the newest member of the injured reserve on the team due to a foot injury.
Maxey had first been drafted by the Chiefs last year. He did not play in the first two games of this season and was then waived.
As part of the special teams, Currie made his NFL debut in the season opener at Green Bay. He was picked in the fifth round by the Bears in 2005.
