Default Bears defense

I went to bed at halftime, but at the time, the Bears had established the league lead with 18 turnovers and it was only their sixth game.

It's no accident. They are an agressive, attacking front four and back seven. I don't see contain/read/react up front, just crushing the pocket on every play. They don't give an inch and rip, strip, and in Peanut Tillman's case, punch the ball out. He literally makes a punching move on the ball while he's wrapping up.

We have different players and run a different scheme, but I'd still like to see a little more of this and a little less "tackling the catch". It's not like they have a huge talent advantage on the Steelers.

They just choose to use theirs in a different manner, and it's fun to watch.
