Should it be said that Chicago Bears tight end Trey Burton was right and that breaking momentum with an early bye would slide them to a string of losses?
Maybe, but I blame the loss to Miami on the NFL’s Officiating team. The loss at home against a poor New England defense was on the Bears.
There is no point in rehashing the nightmare. Who wants to relive wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson‘s 95-yard touchdown run through the Bears special teams unit like a knife through butter? Poor Bears kicker Cody Parkey. His attempt of running after him was just sad. Or how about the blocked punt from punter Pat O’Donnell that was taken for a touchdown?
The saddest part was that, for one fleeting moment, WR Kevin White almost became the hero. He was just one-yard shy. Ah yes, good times.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In the 2014 movie Draft Day, general manager Sonny Weaver Jr. is under pressure as to whom to pick at the number one spot. Throughout the movie, Weaver carries a Post-it note with something written on it. As the drama of his life unfolds, the camera reveals these words, “Vontae Mack no matter what,” linebacker with a chip on his shoulder. Thirty-two teams with thirty-two GMs and head coaches put their jobs on the line for that number one draft pick. The question is who will it be?
For the Chicago Bears, they must go defense no matter what. With the eighth pick in the first-round, they have the option of moving up or trading down, especially if they go defense. The Bears hosted the sought after and elite edge rusher out of North Carolina, Bradley Chubb, just a few weeks ago. They were not disappointed. But what are they willing to trade to get him? Well, with limited picks I don’t see that happening. However, it is the NFL and anything can happen, but Chubb falling to the Bears at eight is a stretch.Continue reading “Bears Must Go Defense No Matter What”→
Immediately after the Marc Trestman short-term era, the Chicago Bears went into a “rebuild” mode, by replacing coaching staff and players. That rebuild brought in John Fox and company in hopes of winning the NFC North and getting back to a winning culture. Well, we all saw where that went and needless to say, it was back to the drawing board.
The Bears interviewed all prospective candidates and chose Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator, Matt Nagy to be the new head coach. No one is disappointed at this choice. His hunger to put a winning culture back in Chicago has fans and analysts giddy.
Chicago Bears fans are passionate about their team, but when former head coach John Fox lead them to several losing seasons, enough was enough. A campaign starting with the hashtag #FireFox spread through Twitter, including protests for his firing.
The Bears wasted no time after the last loss to the Minnesota Vikings to release him. It was then that the hunt began for the new head coach and Matt Nagy was one of the first names mentioned.
Nagy, 39, has spent the last 10 seasons coaching in the NFL, all under head coach Andy Reid, who was with the Philadelphia Eagles and now the Kansas City Chiefs. But out of all the candidates interviewed, including Josh McDaniels, Pat Shurmur, John DeFilippo, George Edwards and even their own defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, Nagy had the golden ticket and here is why:
