Chicago Bears In Game Quotes – Redskins

On Saturday night the Chicago Bears faced the Washington Redskins at Soldier Field. Here are some quotes from during the game.

Israel Idonije, DL

On his performance tonight

“It feels good to get out there. You just want to be better than the first game. Personally, I felt I did that. As a defense we definitely did that, and as an offense. As a team we definitely took a step in the right direction.”

On the performance of the first-team defense

“We did some things [right] and we did some things that we’ve got to work on. We had some opportunities to really put them in tough some spots and we let them get away. We played tough. The intensity was definitely better.”

Jay Cutler, QB

On the first drive

“It’s fun to get back out there. Last game it was tough to have to only watch. We had a good week of practice I thought there was a lot more intensity and a bigger sense of urgency from the guys. We threw the first one to B [Brandon Marshall] and we started rolling a little bit.”

On the offensive firepower

“We have a lot of guys. We have a lot of guys who can play football. You bring in the second-team running back and he’s making guys miss in the hole and scoring touchdowns. We have rookie wide receivers out here playing and we have our regular guys, so we have some guys who can play. The offensive line knows it starts with them and if they play well we’ll take care of the rest.”

Michael Bush, RB

On tonight’s performance

“It felt good but it’s the preseason. I’d like it a lot more if it was the regular season, but it felt good being out there.”

On if he was more comfortable out on the field this game than the first one

“Last week I didn’t get a lot of reps, so it was different. Once you get a lot of reps and get comfortable everything works out for you.”

On the play of the first team

“On the opening drive we came out and scored. Any time you do that you have a great chance to win the game.”

Nick Roach, LB

On the first team defense’s performance

“I think we did a lot better [than last game]. We got a lot of pressure on them which was the goal. We were able to get up field on some of those runs and we were able to get the ball out.”

On their performance against the run

“We knew they were going to run because that is what they did the last time we played them and their first preseason game that we were looking at [during the week]. We’re always ready to play that and that’s what happened.”
