The Chicago Bears won't gently bring their new coaching staff or rookie contributors into their NFL debut.

The Bears host one of the best teams in the league in the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals have made the playoffs two consecutive seasons and have both star power (AJ Green, Geno Atkins, Andy Dalton) but also have impressive depth on both sides of the ball.

Meanwhile, new head coach Marc Trestman and his coaching staff aren't waiting to seek their first NFL win. "There is no such thing as patience in the National Football League... We're expected to perform," special teams coach Joe DeCamillis told Eyewitness News. Despite their vaunted opponent, Chicago is looking to start their 2013 campaign in the win column.
