ANSWER KEY

1) a, b and c. Gould equaled the feat in December, but that was in the thin air in Denver.

2) d. Conte had his shoulder in a sling after the game. Hardin was carted off the field in the third quarter with a neck injury and taken to an area hospital,

3) We suppose it's b, though we wouldn't be surprised if Cutler enjoyed berating the guy who once intercepted him four times in one game.

4) b. The Bears' Lorenzo Booker returned a kickoff for a TD and Washington's Brandon Banks took back a punt for a score. Though we wouldn't blame you if you chose c.

5) b. Jeffery caught three passes for 62 yards. Campbell was on the receiving end of the most sacks allowed by the Bears with three, however.

6) c. Who the heck is Matt Blanchard?

7) a. And sorry about option c. We couldn't resist.

8) This one's actually a trick question, as all three players said something along those lines. As usual, the Bears are working on their press conference skills in the preseason, too.
