Chicago Bears offense can once again scare opposing defenses
What an opening day for the Chicago Bears. Yes, it was the Indianapolis Colts that are not quite ready for prime time. I can honestly say, even in 1995 when the 1995 Chicago Bears offense set team records, this is the first time in my 34 years of being a fan that this offense might have a chance of scaring opposing defenses.

Chicago - September 11, 2012 - What an opening day for the Chicago Bears. Yes, it was the Indianapolis Colts that are not quite ready for prime time. Everyone agrees that Andrew Luck will come back and make fools of anyone that would say he looked bad today. He’s a rookie in his first game, and he’s going to be a great one.

One statement. I’ve been a Bear fan for something like 34 years. I’m thankful that I saw the 1985 Bears with my own eyes. The 1985-1990 offensive line was one for the ages. The 2012 version is a work in progress. But I can honestly say, even in 1995 when the 1995 Chicago Bears offense set team records, this is the first time in my 34 years of being a fan that this offense might have a chance of scaring opposing defenses.

Yes, Curtis Conway and Jeff Graham both caught passes for over 1,000 yards in 1995. Yes, Marcus Robinson set team records in 1999, and Marty Booker was formidable in 2001 and 2002.

None of them were Brandon Marshall. Never in my years of watching the team have I seen a top 15 quarterback playing for the BEARS throw over and over to a true #1 wide receiver and the defense could not stop it.

Now I wonder how Jerry Angelo and the Bears organization went for how many decades, one or two, thinking they could win without a number one receiver.

Let’s watch it unfold. This was not a good opponent. The Colts will be good. But I loved what I saw on Sunday.
