Brad Biggs of The Chicago Sun-Times has given his grades for the Bears for the first half of the season. Click the link for the full story.
A: Brian Urlacher has made plays all over the field and leads the team with six sacks, on pace for double digits for the first time in his career. The difference in his play this season is noticeable because he has not been hampered by leg injuries. Lance Briggs will challenge for the team lead in tackles again and is coming off a 15-tackle performance at New Orleans in which he was all over the field. For the limited playing time Hunter Hillenmeyer receives on the strong side, he's excelling and making the decision not to pursue a replacement in free agency look wise.
