Bears vs. Browns- Recap

I can't give more until after I see the game, but if any of you were able to see it feel free to add your thoughts.  Here are some recap articles.

The Bears had high expectations coming off a 2005 NFC North title, but for the most part, the 2006 preseason has provided more questions than answers. Fortunately, head coach Lovie Smith got the performance he needed on Thursday night as his club completely dominated the Browns 20-7 in Cleveland. Most importantly, Rex Grossman finally looked like the Rex Grossman everyone knows he can be.

Chicago's No. 1 offense scored a touchdown and a field goal on two possessions before exiting, while the first-team defense yielded just 35 total yards and one first down on three series in a 20-7 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

 Rookie Devin Hester's 54-yard punt return set up the Bears' first touchdown.
Starting quarterback Rex Grossman delivered his best performance of the preseason, completing 5 of 8 passes for 73 yards with one touchdown and a 131.8 passer rating.

Sun-Times

It remains to be seen whether the Bears are ready for the start of the 2006 season, but they learned on Thursday night they're at least better prepared than the Cleveland Browns. Playing in the stadium where they suffered their worst loss of the regular season a year ago, the Bears produced their best offensive performance of the preseason. They finally produced a touchdown with the first team and came up a dropped pass short of another one in two possessions.

Obviously, this was just the Browns, but at this point we can hardly complain.  Our offense has had an awful preseason when Grossman was at the helm, so I will take any signs of improvement I can get.
