We put our Twitter followers to the test before every Bears game. Here are this week's question and answer: Question: How many 24-packs of beer would it take to equal the weight of every offensive lineman on the Bears' active roster? (Final answer must be rounded to the nearest whole number. Also, round the weight of each can of beer to the nearest ounce in your calculations.) Answer: First, we added the weights of all eight Bears offensive linemen on the active roster (which does not include the practice squad or injured reserve)

With injuries to guards Lance Louis and Chris Spencer and the loss of Chilo Rachal, the Bears ended last week's game playing Edwin Williams and former starting right tackle Gabe Carimi at guard. To bolster their line, they signed former Dallas Pro Bowler Andre Gurode, who now occupies Rachal's old locker. RedEye sat down with the 33-year-old to hear his thoughts on returning to the NFL, playing for the Bears, and why his major in ethnic studies and double minor in psychology and sociology might come in handy on Sundays.

There is one thing on this Earth that Bears fans and Packers fans agree on, and that is their dislike for the Minnesota Vikings. They tend to be feckless beasts, and their fans are no better. They are a dome team masquerading as cold-weather warriors. They are rarely terrible and sometimes excellent, yet their most famous moments involve successful teams decaying at the seams right when victory seemed most assured. (See: 1999 and 2001 NFC championship games) I mention this because while there were a lot of downsides to Sunday's 28-10 Bears win, the upside was they pounded the Vikings into the dirt...

It's time for a Bears edition of "would you rather?" starring Brian Urlacher. The question: Would you rather have Lance Louis' knee injury or Devin Hester's head injury? Let's compare. Louis tore his ACL during Sunday's win over Minnesota when he was upended on a vicious block during an interception return. Louis will miss the rest of the season. Hester sustained a concussion in the first half and was pulled for the rest of the game. Based on the Bears' handling of concussions this season, it is reasonable to assume Hester will miss Sunday's game against Seattle and, assuming he is cleared to...

The number of Bears who have missed entire games this season gets scarier each week. Jay Cutler, Shea McClellin and Earl Bennett are on that list, and they may at least hope to play next week. Among the Bears who are done for the year or whose status is in doubt, we ranked them on our worry scale from 1 (they can get by) to 4 (prepare for disaster). - Tribune contributed Lance Louis, OL (knee) The offensive line is thin as it is, and Cutler's health is shaky at best.

So many superlatives have been heaped on Denver quarterback Tim Tebow that he seems almost godlike. He certainly finds ways to win - often in thrilling fashion. As for the Bears, well, they needed a victory Sunday by any means possible. Yet they did not get their wish, and now their playoff hopes might need divine intervention. Here's who looked heavenly and who was hellish against the Broncos.   FIRST QUARTER Heavenly: Charles Tillman made a leaping - and dare we say, miraculous?

RedEye asked the Bears to single out which teammates they're most excited to see on the field - one each on offense, defense and special teams, and one rookie. OFFENSE Robbie Gould, kicker: Brandon Marshall. He's been great. He's a big-bodied receiver with a lot of ability. He'll be able to open the field up for the other receivers. And it's definitely a threat that the defenses are going to have to look out for. Kelvin Hayden, cornerback: I'll have to go with Brandon Marshall.

The Bears really do look like they can do it all. In Sunday's 51-20 win at Tennessee, they became the first team in NFL history to have a touchdown pass, touchdown run, interception return touchdown and blocked kick touchdown in the same quarter. This one was over before you could say "Houston Texans" - the Bears' next opponent - which gave fans time to ponder how this team can get better. Yes, even at 7-1, the Bears have work to do if they're going to make a serious run at the Super Bowl.

A few weeks ago, RedEye asked the Bears what it's like to prepare for an All Pro like Detroit defensive lineman Ndamakong Suh. Bears offensive lineman Lance Louis shrugged and said, "There's a lot of All Pros in this league. " In other words, don't get too worked up over the guy you're playing this week, because you'll play somebody just as good next week. No kidding. Over the next six weeks, the Bears play five of the NFL's top seven leading rushers: Chris Johnson, Arian Foster, Frank Gore, Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch and Peterson again.

That rumble you hear is Ndamukong Suh. The All-Pro defensive tackle is coming to Chicago, along with a nasty group of defensive linemen who include ends Cliff Avril and Kyle Vanden Bosch, and tackle Nick Fairley. All three non-Suhs have achieved some level of NFL success: Avril led the Lions in sacks last season and is doing it again, Fairly was a first-round draft pick last year, and Vanden Bosch is a three-time Pro Bowler. But none stirs the imagination like the 6-foot-4, 307-pound Suh, a man as acclaimed as he is notorious.

Jay Cutler's run-in with offensive lineman J'Marcus Webb has dominated Bears talk lately. Fans are questioning whether they get along well enough to win. Well, the truth is both the quarterback and the O-line need to pick up their game, and this week's matchup against St. Louis was the first chance for them to regain their stride. So, would they end up on solid ground or shaky footing? Here's how it played out Sunday.   FIRST QUARTER Solid: For the first time all season, the Bears' first play from scrimmage does not end in a sack of Cutler.
