HEAD COACH LOVIE SMITH (general comments) ChicagoBears vs. IndianapolisColts 8/20/07* *
"Anytime they keep score you want to win, so we feel good about that. We had a few mistakes in the first half that you need to eliminate like quarterback-center exchanges. We should be beyond that, but it happens from time to time. We lost a fumble on a sack that they were able to get. But Rex (Grossman) threw the ball well when we were able to get the ball, which was good. We did some good things early, but the turnovers really hurt us offensively. Defensively, we came out and stopped them on that goal line stand early. And we liked what some of our younger players did in the game, especially. This was another chance to evaluate some of our players. We got some good video. We put them in some tough situations, and we'll go from there."

"The crowd noise caused a little problem with the cadence, and I pulled out when I said 'hut.' But the second one was some sweat on my wrist, which I guess is going to happen, but it's something we'll fix and it won't be a problem. It hadn't happened at all in training camp, and it won't be a problem in the regular season."

"How can you not? But this is still just a pre-season game, and it was a quarter and a half at that. So, it was not your typical football game. In the back of your mind you want to get back at them a little bit, but they're a good football team, and hopefully we'll see them in Phoenix."

"We are comfortable. The more time we put in there, the more comfortable we are. We are just trying to
