Did Mike Smith forget to tell Bosher that it was no longer preseason and that he can start booming the kicks to the back of the endzone?

Oh...

Get rid of Bosher before he costs us games.

No he didn't forget. Let's just realize it now. Kicking game this year want be hitting on shyte. Want say Bosher is crap now but darn what good is a young leg if you don't know how to use it..lol

i am optimistic and i do not think this loss means the end of the world, however i can't figure out what the deal is with bosher.

usually when coming into the league as a kicker/punter (at least most of the time) is not that their kicking strength is off but their accuracy.

why did we draft a guy at this position that doesn't have any strength in his leg... even last season under the old rules, multiple kickers hit it pretty deep in the endzone occasionally... bosher barely reaches the endzone.

I agree that our field position was a big problem - a few good passes from Cutler put the Bears into scoring territory, whereas a few good passes from Ryan and we were still in our own half...

Nevertheless, in regard to our Special Teams as a whole, we were facing Devin Hester and restricted him to a few 'decent' runs, but nothing more (at least in the first three quarters, I couldn't watch Q4). There were a few hairy moments, but given we were up against the best return specialist in the league in game 1, I think that was encouraging.

Yeah, I thought Weems was even more of a problem than Bosher. He kept bringing the ball out of the end zone instead of taking a knee, and every time it seemed like he didn't even get out to the 10. Plus he made some really terrible decisions in the punting game. He was so good last season that I expect him to bounce back against the Eagles, but... ugh.

Offense and Defense Problems aside, our biggest problem today was Field Position. We were backed up all day. No return game either. On the Flip side, the Bears had great Field Position all day.

WE MISS MICHAEL KOENEN!

Field Position Specialist!

Weems didn't help anything by letting balls get downed deep on our end, by simply not hitting the gap with authority, and yes our punting is lacking without Keonen.
