The Chicago Bears Make Last Minute Preparations for Colts Home Opener
This week the Chicago Bears have been preparing for their first game of the new season and although they have been picked as the favorites for their opening game, the Bears have been preparing to take on a potentially challenging competitor. As they prepare to face off against the Indianapolis Colts the Bears will be playing the first real season game against a completely Peyton Manning-free team and instead face the first year quarterback Andrew Luck. As the A normal Bears pre-game preparation routine against the Colts would inevitably include a major emphasis on taking on the unstoppable Manning, they have spent the week refocusing their efforts and learn to defend rookie QB Andrew Luck.
While the Bears defense will need to decide how to handle the talented new quarterback, the Bears offense has also been hard at work preparing for the new season and the first matchup against the Colts. Earlier this week Laurence Holmes urged fans to be patient with the new Bears offense as he told supporters that while they can expect connections between Cutler to Marshall, they may have some areas they will struggle with in their offense, but not to lose faith. As the team works to sweep away some cobwebs and rebuild their offense many have been focused on the status of star player Brian Urlacher.
After a suffering with a knee injury, and missing training camp, the Bears officially announced that #54 is on his way to making a full recovery. With a week of speculation and several missed practices, many assumed Urlacher would miss the team’s kick off game. However, late in the week, Kip Lewis announced that Urlacher would indeed be suiting up in Sunday’s matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. The Bears head coach assured fans that Urlacher was ready to play and to bring his famous, unstoppable energy to the Bears defense, assuring everyone that if the eight-time Prow Bowl middle linebacker wasn’t ready to play; he would not be stepping on the field.
Fortunately for fans, Urlacher has reiterated these notions assuring spectators that they can see him in the starting lineup on Sunday. Urlacher and the rest of the Bears team will be ready and fully prepared to take on the Colts this Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field; make sure you are prepared too with your Bears tickets to the big matchup.
