1. The running backs need holes to run through up front
The ball carriers do deserve some of the blame, though, especially in pass protection because none of them blocked very well when the Chargers threw some of their blitz packages at Cutler, No. 2 Caleb Hanie and No. 3 Dan LeFevour.
2. Peppers isn't going to ramp up the pass rush by himself
Peppers only appeared to be in the vicinity of the passer on two occasions, and that was when San Diego was throwing a screen pass to his side and allowed him to get a little deeper in the backfield to clear that area of the field.
3. Aromashodu is the receiver you want on your fantasy team
Devin Hester and Johnny Knox may be the starters, and they have done nothing to lose their jobs atop the depth chart, but the flexibility Aromashodu has to play all three wideout positions and the way he provides a big target in the red zone makes him a good bet to be the best Bears receiver in fantasy this year.
4. Both of the safety positions are still a major concern on D
Fortunately, Wright was playing great before being forced to leave with a finger injury, so assuming it's minor and he'll be back to normal quickly, he needs to be out there as much as possible and save what has been a struggling unit for years.
5. LeFevour was a waste of a draft pick this past April
The Bears didn't need a QB in April's draft and, therefore, shouldn't have taken one, regardless of the supposed value LeFevour represented in Round 6 – not once during rookie minicamp, veteran minicamp, OTAs, training camp or the preseason opener has he resembled an NFL passer.
