Chicago's offense has sucked much of the life out of the Panthers' stadium at the moment. The Bears just marched on a 17-play, 84-yard drive that seemed to take a quarter and actually took 7 minutes, 51 seconds. Carolina finally held inside its own 10, so Chicago kicked a field goal and now leads 10-0, in the second quarter.
Da Bears look so far just like the team that manhandled Indy last week, while Carolina barely resembles the squad that upset San Diego.
It's really been all Chicago so far -- the Bears had a staggering 109-20 advantage in total yards after the first quarter. Because of a sack of Carolina's Jake Delhomme, the Panthers' passing yardage in the first quarter was negative-2.
