The Chicago Bears got back to being the Chicago Bears after intermission against the Lions, running the football and playing tough defense. Bear Report caught up with Jason McKie in the locker room at Soldier Field after Sunday's victory, and subscribers can listen to that exclusive audio feature right here.

John Crist: I know you guys have been throwing the ball tremendously the last month or so, but this is going to be a running team and always will be a running team. How satisfying is it for you knowing you finally got off the schneid today?

Jason McKie: It was good. A lot of people have been criticizing the running game, of course, because we've been coming out and establishing the pass, but we've just been taking what the defense is giving us. The past few teams, the pass has been open and we've been executing the passing game. This week, they started keying on the pass a little bit and opened up the running game. We're just going to continue to be productive as an offense. That's our focus, [to] just come out and just be consistent every game.

Be sure to listen to the rest of JC's interview with fullback Jason McKie, an exclusive for Bear Report subscribers ...
