Lovie SmithOn comparing this team to the Super Bowl team from three years ago:
"That was a good team, and this one is also. It's early in the game to tell. On paper, we like what we have at each position. We have a long way to go, but I like the progress we're making. I hope we have that type of team."
QB Jay CutlerOn being on the opposing sideline at Invesco Field:
"It was a little weird being in a different locker room and being on the other sideline, but that's how it goes. I love where I'm at in Chicago, and I like where we are going offensively."
"Jay's Mr. Consistent. He's going to give us a great game every week. We are fortunate to have him on our team. He never gets rattled, and that is a great quality to have."
"We're getting stiff over there on the sideline. They were able to get that 98-yard drive in right before the half, and it really helps, but we haven't been able to play a lot this preseason."
"We scored, so that is a good thing. But we understand it's the preseason. We need to just keep getting better in preparation for Green Bay."
TE Greg OlsenOn his general assessment of Sunday's game:
"They came out pretty fired up and with a lot of energy, but we were able to weather the storm. It was good because we were able to sustain some drives, and it gave us a lot of plays and game experience."
RB Matt ForteOn playing in front of a nasty crowd on the road:
"There is always extra emotion when it's an away game. Tonight it was loud for a preseason game and was good experience as we continue to prepare for Green Bay and the regular season."
