Was the Dolphins-Bears game officiating one-sided?

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Since I am neither a player nor a season ticket holder, I am calling out the NFL Officiating team.

What appears to be a one-sided officiating crew down in Miami must be stated, reviewed and reprimanded for the preposterous penalties against the Bears and all the missed penalties against the Dolphins.

Let’s review a few, in case you have no idea what you “may” have missed.

Dolphins 31 – Bears 28 (OT)

Let me just start out by saying this:  We all knew it wasn’t gonna be easy, but how many knew it would have ended like that??

I could spend 5 pages on stats and tell you all what most of you guys have already read, but I want to focus this article on us, the fans.  Man, the emotions we all go through with these types of games!

First off, lets start at the beginning.  Be honest y’all, did you really think back up quarterback Brock Osweiler was the answer?  I sure didn’t, and I was legit worried.  Then I started to calm down and thought about it some.

The incredible takeaways from a gut-wrenching Bears loss

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63 

It wasn’t supposed to end this way. The Chicago Bears had rallied back in the second half only to end in a gut-wrenching overtime loss to the Miami Dolphins 31-28. Again, it was left to who was the better kicker and yesterday that title belonged to the Dolphins’ Jason Sanders.

This loss hurts deep, real deep. The kind of deep that one loses sleep over because it was right there.

How could the Bears lose to backup quarterback Brock Osweiler again? Osweiler. He now holds a 3-0 record against the Bears.

I… just… can’t.

Fins Up, Bear Down: Who Emerges the Victor?

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

The 3-1 Chicago Bears are now refreshed coming off an early bye week. It was not ideally the best situation having already built a winning momentum. But the NFL gods deemed it so and now they hit the road with fresh legs against the 3-2 Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins have just come off a terrible beatdown by the Cincinnati Bengals and continue to pile up injuries in the process. Especially with a banged up offensive line, quarterback Ryan Tannehill may be in deep trouble against a fierce Chicago defense.

As a Bears fan, I expect there to be at least 3 sacks and 2 fumbles in this game, not to mention an interception or two. But then again, that could also happen to Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky if the protection isn’t there.

Chicago Bears win big at home

Bears 48 – Buccaneers 10

For weeks it was said that quarterback Mitchell Trubisky could not throw for long passes. It was also said that he would not rise to the occasion until Week 10.

Well to the surprise of every single football analyst, amateur podcasters and fans alike, the young QB took command of the Bears offense and proved that he can throw the rock.

The Chicago Bears offense hit the ground running on their first play and never looked back. Trubisky made it loud and clear that he could throw by drilling one down 48 yards to tight end Trey Burton for a touchdown.

Chicago Bears Matt Nagy on track his way

Bears 16 – 14 Cardinals

The expectations for the outcome of Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals were supposed to be low. If you were expecting a blowout, then your expectations were a bit too high. The Bears defeated the Cardinals 16-14 thanks to the defense.

The Bears defense was a little slow at first, including a couple of botched plays in coverage from linebacker Danny Trevathan. Those two ended up in touchdowns. But with some motivation, the Bears defense came alive and held quarterback Sam Bradford to 0 points for the rest of the game.

However, Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky struggled throughout the day, especially when he would drop his eyes the moment the Cardinals would pass rush. He failed to connect on the deep balls but did just enough to lead his team to victory.

Bears can win with Trubisky under center

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

As a parent, we do whatever it takes to help our children succeed.

One of those things is knowing what tools to use to help them get there.

Each child is different and so are their learning styles. It’s the same with quarterbacks.

Each one has a different learning style and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is no different. Yet it seems like everyone has an opinion about what Trubisky can or cannot do.

Bears defeat Seahawks but have glaring questions

Seahawks 17 -24 Chicago

The Chicago Bears pulled off a win at home in Soldier Field against the Seattle Seahawks and it felt good!

It has been long overdue, the Bears won a game at home in regular season. So you could imagine my surprise when some fans expressed disapproval instead of praise.

The Seattle Seahawks entered this game with a depleted defensive core. The absence of K.J. Wright and Bobby Wagner was definitely felt on both sides of the ball. But it was the Chicago Bears defense that sealed the win for the team.

However, there are a few glaring questions that need some answers.

Bears silver lining in a soul crushing loss

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Bears 23 – Packers 24

For the past several seasons the Chicago Bears fans have dealt with a losing record. So one would think that losing to the Green Bay Packers again would be of no surprise. But this loss was different. This loss would sting into the next day.

The Bears had the lead for the first three quarters. But it was all lost in a collapse of all phases, including the play-calling of head coach Matt Nagy.

But in the soul-crushing display that ended what could have been a great start to the season, there was a silver lining.
