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.

The banged up Seahawks face Chicago Bears on MNF

The Seattle Seahawks are once again on the road this week, heading to Chicago to face a strong Bears team.

The Chicago Bears have improved greatly this offseason. We saw that improvement in their opening game against Green Bay last Sunday. Due to Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers pulling off a Superman level performance last week, the Bears didn’t get the win, but the strength of the team can’t be denied.

After watching both the Chicago and the Seattle games last week, I should be quite worried for the Seahawks. Chicago looked really good in its matchup against Green Bay. But its Monday night, kids. And we know what that means. Its Seattle’s favorite day of the week.

Aaron Rodgers leads thrilling comeback win over the Chicago Bears

Green Bay Packers 24 – Chicago Bears 23

 

I am definitely feeling the effects today from the lack of oxygen I experienced when I stopped breathing last night during the Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers game. When quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down with a knee injury in the first half, the only words I could muster were, “You have to be joking.”

It looked like the Packers’ season was over just as it was beginning. There are injuries, and then there are “the cart is coming out” injuries. Only a handful of players have ever left the game on the injury cart to return. And none have launched a comeback like Rodgers did in Green Bay’s season opener.

Bears silver lining in a soul crushing loss

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

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.

Bears at Lambeau: three keys to the game

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman//@WandaW63

 

A rivalry unmatched by any other team in the NFL will be rekindled this Sunday Night.  The first time the Bears and Packers met, the Chicago Bears shut them out 20-0 on November 27, 1921. However, the last time they met the Bears suffered a crushing loss to the Green Bay Packers 23-16 on November 12, 2017. Needless to say, I hope it will be exciting.

In a nationally televised game, the Bears will need to focus on these three elements to beat the Packers.

Chicago Bears win and lose in the final preseason game

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63 

It’s been a long preseason in my opinion. But for the players fighting to make the 53-man roster, it was a chance to leave it all on the field.  Outside of Bears fans begging for General Manager Ryan Pace to pull the trigger on Khalil Mack, the Chicago Bears have some hard decisions to make.

Last night’s game against the Buffalo Bills was exciting and heartbreaking at the same time. Though the Bears gave up 24 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, there is plenty of content in the win and loss columns.
