Anderson and Gould receive monthly awards

Mark Anderson has won the Defensive Rookie of the Month Award.  In four games Anderson has registered 6 sacks and forced three fumbles.

"I've worked hard for this," Anderson said. "I'm glad I got the opportunity to showcase my talent. It's an honor. I'm just happy right now."

Kicker Robbie Gould was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month.

Gould, meanwhile, has made all 20 field goals and 23 extra points he has attempted this season, converting 10 field goals and 16 extra points in four games in October. The second-year pro leads the NFL with 83 points and is on pace to score 190, which would break the league record of 176 set by Green Bay's Paul Hornung in 1960.

"It's just all about being in a rhythm and being confident to do my job," Gould said. "It's what I get paid to do. I get paid to go out there and make field goals. It's a performance-based business. If (I) don't make field goals, I'm not here. I'm not talking to any of you (reporters)."

Gould is currently the most accurate kicker in NFL history among those with at least 40 attempts. He has converted 41 of 47 tries in two seasons with the Bears, an 87.234 success rate that's narrowly ahead of the Cowboys' Mike Vanderjagt (87.209 percent).

Obviously, Gould has worked hard in the off season to improve to what he is currently doing, so congrats to him.

Much props to JA for bringing the steal of the draft in Anderson to Chicago.
