The Bears couldn't ask for much more out of their 6-1 start, which places them all alone atop the NFC North.
However, it's no secret that the defense has been doing most of the heavy lifting, which cannot be the trend throughout the entire season.
The Bears offense looked dysfunctional on too many drives, and while the players decide the outcome, some deal of blame needs to be placed on offensive coordinator Mike Tice.
It is Tice's job to have his offense running smoothly and that has not been the case often times, especially in the first half of games. Through their first seven contests, the Bears offense has scored only three first-quarter touchdowns.
Whether it's finding a way to get Marshall going early on, developing better protection schemes for the offensive line or getting more creative with the play-calling, Tice needs to do a better job.
The talent is there on offense and it's about time that they start to carry their own weight.
