    Grizzly Bears -- the members of the team who were like a cold, gale-force wind off Lake Michigan:

    Israel Idonije: With Mark Anderson gone and Julius Peppers distracting offensive lines, Izzy is quietly putting together a breakout season. Against the Redskins, Idonije broke up a pass that D.J. Moore turned into a touchdown and added to that a sack and two tackles.

    Chester Taylor: The Bears finally involved Taylor, the offseason acquisition that they paid well, into their running game, and what do you know? He was able to contribute, getting a total of 30 yards on five touches. Three came on a pivotal third-quarter drive that if not for a Cutler interception, would have likely ended in a Bears score.

    DeAngelo Hall: He made catching Cutler's passes look easy, making four beautiful receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown. Hall and Cutler were clearly connected ... oh, wait. Hall plays for the Redskins.

    Teddy Bears -- the guys who treated the Redskins to a sweet, summer breeze:
    Jay Cutler: What is more frustrating about Cutler: his mistakes or his attitude? Even after throwing four interceptions to Hall, Cutler said postgame that he wouldn't do anything differently. Confidence is one thing, but stubbornly holding onto a game plan that does not work is straight-up arrogance.

    Lovie Smith: Bad challenges, bad game planning, an inability to correct mistakes ... you name it, the Bears coaching staff did it. They couldn't adequately react to Hall's massive game, or to Albert Haynesworth's assault on Cutler.
