In Wednesday's edition of Bears Bites, we take a look at various aspects of the Chicago Bears' offense against the Cincinnati Bengals, as well as critiques of the Bears' secondary. 

-The Bears had plenty to be happy about on Sunday, but Jeff Dickerson accurately pointed out a few things that didn't go so well, including Major Wright's blown coverage that resulted in a deep touchdown pass to AJ Green. [ESPN Chicago]

-John Mullin was also impressed with the Bears' play, but he says that their run game has to improve if they are going to keep winning. [CSN Chicago]

-Speaking of improvements, Bears head coach Marc Trestman says that the team's defense has to get better if they are going to get where they are wanting to go. [Chicago Tribune] scribe Larry Mayer had an interesting Q&A with fans yesterday about where the team is right now, highlighting both the good and bad from their win. []

-Hub Arkush graded various players from Sunday's game, and he only gave Jay Cutler a B for his performance. It seems a little low, but he does a good job explaining his reasoning. []

-Finally, Martellus Bennett has gained a ton of fans in Chicago with his entertaining behavior in press conferences and on his Twitter feed, but on Sunday, he let his game do the talking too, scoring a spectacular touchdown in the back of the end zone. [Chicago Sun-Times]
