Shut down the running game and we should be ok.

Let's pound the Bears early, rest some starters and give Teddy some playing time.

Oh, who am I kidding, we'll manage to make the game "interesting" well into the 4th quarter. :govikes:

Kyle Fuller has always played well against us. Hopefully Keenum rebounds.

He's not bad as a receiver either. He's really a good fund by Spelman.

Good start ... real good run blocking so far

I was worried about all the OL shake ups
But they got great push and all seemed to be
doing their jobs

Capable long-snapper, too. He got a game ball from Zimmer last week.
