They Said It: Bears Players

Several Bears addressed the media in the locker room after Thursday's preseason game against the Cleveland Browns, and was there to hear what they had to say.

QB Rex Grossman
On how much preparation they've done for San Diego already:
"I know the coaches have [looked at film]. They've gotten a look at them and started their gameplanning a little bit. That's what this weekend is coming up. I'm going to watch a lot of tape this weekend, and then Monday night and Tuesday night the game plan gets a little more solidified with what were going to do. We can get into the normal routine of a week. We'll get a little head start from a normal week, but there's still plenty of time to get ready for them."

WR Mike Hass
On the prospects of him making the final 53-man roster:
"I guess I've had a good camp. I think I've been pretty consistent catching the ball, running routes and knowing enough positions to be versatile. Hopefully it works out for me."

WR Rashied Davis
On this year's team versus last year's team:
"I think we're a lot better team than last year, and last year we we're pretty good. Hopefully, we can go out and play the way we know that we are capable of playing."

FB Obafemi Ayanbadejo
On why the running game continues to struggle in the preseason:
"The running game needs guys to jell together. It's hard to get efficient when you don't let the first team get going and start grinding. I think a lot of runs that got two or three yards in the first half would get you five or six yards in the second half. I don't see the running game being an issue at this point."

RB Garrett Wolfe
On his overall performance in tonight's game:
"I wish I could have done better tonight running the football. As a running back, it's better for me to have a better game running the ball. It's still a work in progress. I just hope to get better each game."
