Join Gibbs and Tim Hockemeyer as they break down the Chicago Bears each and every week.

Tim is a featured columnist for the Chicago Bears on and Gibbs has been blogging about his favorite Chicago teams for years.

Another bad week for the Bears as they fell to the defending Super Bowl champs 27-17.  Rough day on the ground for Matt Forte & Co. who are still without Marian Barber. 

Roy Williams did return after missing Week 2, but was unable to register a catch after being targeted four times.

The defense was missing half of the defensive backfield and started its different third combo of safeties in only the third week of the season.

Another incident with the turf has the masses wondering why the Bears and the park district refuse to put in field turf.

Overall, it looks like the Bears' offense was just what the Packers’ defense was looking for, as it was lit up the first two weeks by the Saints and Panthers.

In another division matchup, the Vikes took on the Lions and gave up another huge lead, allowing Detroit to remain undefeated. Are the Lions legit, and will the Vikings ever be able to close someone out?

We will also look ahead to Week 4 with the Bears hosting Ron Riveria, Greg Olson, Cam Newton  and the Carolina Panthers.

All this and whatever else we can squeeze into a hour of Bears talk.
