|Spotlight Shines on Bears Offense
|LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Mike Martz, you're on the spot. You, too, Jay Cutler. And the same goes for the rest of the offense.
The Chicago Bears insisted their struggles during a winless preseason were no cause for alarm, that they were simply holding back. Well, now it counts. The season opener is Sunday against Detroit, and it's time to see what they have.
Cutler says he's confident in Martz's system, that "guys had a great summer." He says there's "some really good stuff on film that we're building on."
Cutler responded "first quarter" when he was asked how soon the offense should be clicking -- something it didn't do in the preseason.
