“Dallas was definitely a wacky win, but something that we will definitely take and I’m glad that we can learn from it on the winning end. We would rather it not be that way, but I was definitely excited with how we banded together, locked arms and got things done. With that, I definitely had a good smile after that game because I finally got a win in Cowboys Stadium and the great thing about it is that I didn’t have a good game, I didn’t play my best, but that’s the type of team that we have. Nobody really has to play outside the box to get a win, you just get your job done and come out as winners.
“I noticed early when the schedule came out that we were on the road for the first quarter of our season and we’ll be able to come home the second quarter and hopefully sew up a lot of wins. It will be good to hear our crowd when we get into these homes games. Monday Night Football is a great way to start, being our first one back since playing Kansas City and I’m definitely looking forward to that atmosphere.
“I definitely think the Bears are going to try to run the ball, and they’re smart for that. They probably know that crowd noise is going to have a big effect for Jay Cutler to be in passing situations, but they can be in pretty solid run situations and run downhill. We understand as a defense; we go into every single game wanting to shut down the run and make them a one-dimensional team. Our crowd can put that much more into the noise factor and get them into passing situations where we can go back there, hit Cutler and get a lot of sacks.
“They definitely have some big weapons. (Matt) Forte, (Devin) Hester and you can’t forget Cutler. What a lot of people don’t know is that he creates a lot of plays with his feet and he can hurt you if you let him out of the pocket, as well as with his arm. We just need to be able to contain those guys and having gone against them already, having a good feel for them – though this is the first time this year – we have great film to watch of them and have a great feel for the type of players that they have.
“But you always have guys that pop up in the game that you may not have noticed too much in the past. Watching film you can see that these are some of the guys that can step up. It will be very interesting to see who steps up in that tight end role for them because I know that was a big part of their scheme last year with (Greg) Olsen, and they don’t have him again, but they have three tight ends in there and they obviously expect one of them to step up, if not a couple of them.”
