The article analyzes the performance of the players of the football team Chicago Bears. The Bears feel good about their situation--regardless of their opponent in the second round--because they have allowed only five touchdowns at home all season. The defense will benefit from the return of SS Mike Brown, who was suffering from calf injury. On offense, QB Rex Grossman has to harness his gunslinger attitude and not force throws because RB Thomas Jones remains the focal point. Rookie K Robbie Gould remains a concern.
