Chicago Bears: Trubisky Has the Moxie to Lead the Future

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

The sound could be heard throughout the nation. It was the sound of the deflated air of every Chicago Bears fan and player in Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions. To be honest it was worse than #deflategate. The look on quarterback Mitch Trubisky‘s face when kicker Connor Barth missed the game-winning field goal was the telling tale of a Bears leader who was crushed when he couldn’t give his team a win.

Chicago Bears Fans Unite Under #FireFox Anthem

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

by Wanda Wiedman / @WandaW63

In early October as the football season was in full swing.  There was an outcry from fans to bench quarterback Mike Glennon and start rookie Mitch Trubisky. Hoping that it was just a QB issue, Bears fans were ecstatic when the rookie was started and the organization could start winning games. Even though the Bears won two in a row, it was due to the defense and not the quarterback change.

This led bearsbarroom.com to believe that the crux of the Bears losing display was solely on head coach John Fox. They were hoping that by October 30th, their cries and demands would be heard and he would be gone.

Packers Win First Game without Aaron Rodgers

Packers 23 – Bears 16

 

It’s odd to me that the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers have almost an even record against each other. Going into Sunday’s game, the Packers were just one game ahead in one of the oldest rivalries in the NFL. Thankfully, that number went up one with the Packers now winning 14 of their past 16 games against Chicago.

This was the first time I’ve ever been nervous when facing the Bears. The Packers have been on a three-game losing streak since quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone, and the way Green Bay had been playing, it seemed like the Bears (favored to win this game) would get the win.

Bears Coaching and Team Stuck on Repeat

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

by Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

One dimensional. That is how Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews described the Chicago Bears offense after a poor performance in yesterday’s 23-16 loss.

The Bears were coming into this game off a bye, so they should have had fresh legs and a fresh perspective. Instead, the Bears came in sluggish, unprepared and downright confused. And the score would have been even worse if Aaron Rodgers were healthy and on that field.

Can the Bears Send the Packers Packing?

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Ask any Chicago Bears fan what was their favorite game against the Green Bay Packers, and they will say the Thanksgiving game. On November 25th, 2015, then quarterback Jay Cutler threw for 200 yards and a touchdown with no turnovers on a rainy night. The Bears defense was clutch on a final goal line drive as former Bears defensive back Tracy Porter intercepted quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The Bears won 17-13.

Ever since Rodgers replaced Brett Favre, he has been the thorn in the side of the Chicago Bears. It has been a running joke for the Packers with how easy it is to defeat their rivals. Well, the last time the Bears and Packers collided was in Week 4, in a horrible shellacking by Rodgers and company.

NFL Officiating Reaches New Low With Zach Miller Catch

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

Saints 20 – Bears 12

The Chicago Bears were ready to take on the New Orleans Saints in an attempt to make it three wins in a row.  The Bears defense was doing its best to give the offense a chance to make things happen. Even though the Saints were up by 11, a touchdown here would have made it a 4 – point game.  Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is staring at an all-out blitz coming his way with four seconds left to throw the ball. He sees his favorite target, tight end Zach Miller in the end zone and he chucks the rock 65 yards.

The ball sails through the air, as Bears fans hold their breath in anticipation of the catch they know Miller will make. Miller leaps up to catch it and it is at that moment, the unimaginable happens. While in the air, Miller wraps his hands around the ball, but as soon as his foot touches the ground, his knee snaps.

Winning Games Can Change the Bears Culture

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

by Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

You’ve seen the promo ads on Twitter, you know the one that displays the words “FireFox”, resembling that of the Mozilla search engine logo at the expense of head coach John Fox.  Many fans and some sports writers believe that in order for the Chicago Bears to succeed they need to throw away their season and lose games so that it will force owners and vice president of operations Ted Phillips to fire Fox. But tell that to the 53 players on that roster that they need to lose games. Go ahead….I’ll wait.

Now, maybe some fans have forgotten what firing a head coach did to this team. The last time the Bears had a decent winning record was in 2012, which was the last season coached by Lovie Smith. But since 1992, which was the last time Mike Ditka coached the Bears, there have been 5 coaches and only one who has led them to several winning seasons and a Super Bowl appearance. It was a shock to the team when Lovie Smith was released. That’s when it all went downhill.

Can the Chicago Bears Make it Two Wins in a Row?

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

by Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Bears 27 – 24 Ravens

The Chicago Bears locker room must have been electric. Players who were told they were finished rose up to the challenge and balled out better than they had in years. Coaches who wondered if this team would ever win were finally seeing progress in themselves and the players. A change swept through the air and it started with the swagger of a pretty boy assassin.

Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky came in against the Baltimore Ravens with one goal in mind: win at every cost. And with the help of a defense that resembles that of the monsters they once were, last Sunday’s win is just the tip of the iceberg.

But, can the Bears make it two wins in a row, especially against a tough Carolina Panthers defense? Well, according to NFL.com, the Panthers are 4th in defensive power with the Bears a few notches below, ranked 6th in the league. This could very well be a defense-driven game, but it all rests on how well the rookie can connect with his receivers, and how well the defense can expose quarterback Cam “Superman” Newton’s weaknesses.

Bear Down!

Introducing Wanda Wiedman: Official Chicago Bears Reporter // @WandaW63

 

I met the love of my life who happened to be from the
Windy City of Chicago! Though I am more of the jock than he is, we are
still a football family.  We have been married for 25+ years.  My son and daughter are grown adults, one of them in college. I admit I am a football junkie. I love hearing about it, watching
it and talking about it.

As a family, we hold our allegiances to the Chicago Bears, Chicago Cubs and the Chicago Blackhawks.  However, I have a special place for the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame.

It was the encouragement of my children that brought me to write about the game I
love. I started blogging and that led me to write for NFL Female, now OurTurf Football.

I love to play Fantasy Football and won two of our leagues taking first
place!  I host a Fantasy podcast, Third and Short with our Cleveland Browns Reporter, Kate. I’m a displaced fan, and I will be attending my first game at Soldier Field in 2017, and hoping to make it a yearly thing!
