Panthers struggling to replace Julius Peppers - Depends who you talk to, but one of them didn't want him to be there. Oh well, he's ours now, and he's a big scary man who does big scary things.

Bears' run offense struggling mightily - Mr. Moon doth speak the truth--let's hope they can turn it around today.

Chicago Bears quarterbacks: Don't be surprised if Chicago Bears turn to Caleb Hanie - You wanted it, you might get it. But only when if Collins struggles.

Carolina, on his mind - If I were Jimmy "The Pickle" Clausen, I wouldn't really want to play today.

Todd Collins at QB recalls disastrous Bears trio of '04 - In case you were starting to find your positivity for this game, Rick Morrissey brings you a fantastical blast from the past.

Look for Bears to turn to running game - Is it a problem to give Chester one or four more series?

Nuts and Bolts: Bears vs. Panthers - These are the fasteners of the game, as per ESPNChicago.
