Bears must take Giant step at MetLife Stadium

Wanda Wiedman, Reporter Chicago Bears

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

The Chicago Bears have won five straight games after their loss to New England. They won three division games within a span of 11 days. No one can question their hunger to win.

Even with starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky unable to play on Thanksgiving due to a shoulder sprain, his sideline presences and leadership were evident on every pass and every tackle. The entire team put their confidence on backup QB, veteran Chase Daniel to carry the team and with the help of the defense, it was a done deal.

Going into Sunday’s matchup, the Bears will have to take it on the road one more time to MetLife Stadium as they battle the Giants on their home turf. The Giants are coming off a close game against the Philadelphia Eagles, only to lose by a field goal. The Bears were able to enjoy the holidays and enjoy a few days of rest. But now it’s back to the grind and a win mindset for the hungry Monsters of the Midway.

Four Interesting Similarities of the 2006 & 2018 Bears Seasons

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

Right now the Chicago Bears lead the NFC North with a 5-3 record. But there are a lot of similarities to the 2006 season that cannot be ignored, or at least are worth a look at.

Some of these interesting facts can give Bears fans hope of a better record to end the season. Obviously, it is contingent on how well the Bears prepare, respond, and attack their opportunities and opponents.

With that being said, let’s look at the facts, which can be verified at pro-football-reference.com.

  • In the first nine weeks of the 2006 season, the Bears were 7-1, losing to the Miami Dolphins. However, in those nine weeks, the Bears scored a total of 234 points. As of now, the Bears have scored 235 total points! That is including the three losses that the Bears decided to get out of the way. In 2006 the Bears reached a record of 5 wins against the Buffalo Bills winning 40-7. Last Sunday, they reached 5 wins by beating the Buffalo Bills, 41-9. Fascinating!
  • Currently, the Bears are right on schedule in regards to matching passing yards from 2006. Rex Grossman was the quarterback at the time and tallied 1,810 passing yards. As of now, QB Mitchell Trubisky has thrown for 1,842 passing yards. What is interesting is the rushing yards. Bears fans have been begging to see more of running back Jordan Howard. But the Bears have actually surpassed the 2006 rushing yards in the first 9 weeks.

Bears need to attack Jets with military precision

Wanda Wiedman, Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63 

One of my favorite hobbies is going to air shows and learning all about military air-combat. Pilots who flew during World War II were either the aggressor waiting to attack or sitting ducks waiting to be attacked. Their eyes always had to be scanning the skies for the enemy.

On Sunday, the Chicago Bears will battle the New York Jets in Soldier Field. Even though all games should be a win, this one, at home needs to happen in a big way. After back-to-back losses against the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots, the Bears can’t afford to let another game slip through their fingers by a touchdown or field goal. It is imperative that the Monsters of the Midway attack the Jets with a military method of attack.

Bears can win with Trubisky under center

Wanda Wiedman Chicago Bears Reporter

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

Wanda Wiedman Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

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 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.

Bears 27-Chiefs 20

Twitter went ballistic when coach Matt Nagy announced that most of the starters would sit out the game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Some would argue that the Chicago Bears number ones needed more reps. Especially that of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

NFL gives no R-E-S-P-E-C-T to Bears RB Jordan Howard

Official Chicago Bears Fan Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63  

Every year the NFL lists the top 100 players who were voted by players as a means of respect for what they do on the field. Some of those players don’t even have to play the whole season to get on this list. Adrian Peterson was on the 2017 list and missed the entire season. Since this article will be solely based on running backs currently mentioned on the 2018 list, it is a crying shame that Chicago Bears running back Jordan Howard is missing.

So far on this list are RB Carlos Hyde, rookie Leonard Fournette, Mark Ingram, Ezekiel Elliott (suspension and all), and Devonta Freeman. The fact of the matter is that in 2017, nine running backs were on that list, including Peterson; LeGarrette Blount, Jay Ajayi, Freeman, DeMarco Murray, LeSean McCoy, David Johnson, Le’Veon Bell, and Elliott.

Chicago Bears 53-Man Prediction and Then Some

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

With rookie mini-camp complete and OTAs underway, the Chicago Bears are slowly putting together a well-balanced team.  Ryan Pace and company have done their due diligence in signing key players that will have an immediate impact on the team.

But it’s those additional spots, the supplemental players that will have to be ready to step in on a moment’s notice.  Who will make a statement in training camp that they belong on this team? Who will shine when it matters and when it counts?
