The Packers anhialating the Bears raises some questions about the team. The Vikings ran all over us, we couldn't generate any offense, and we lost the game. Are the Bears that much different from the VIkings?
One thing that's different is that Hawk played middle linebacker for the Bears game. Chillar took his outside position. This worked out very well. First, Hawk might be better in the middle as he's a smart player, a sure tackler, and great against the run. His weakness has always been coverage. Chillar is faster, thus better at coverage. He played a great game. Though, we wasn't going up against a Whitton or Gonzales.
This is no knock on Barnett. But, it will be interesting to see how the defense plays the rest of the season now that Nick is out.
