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.

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

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.

Chicago Bears Win in OT, But the Call is Still Out for Trubisky

Bears 23, Steelers 17 (OT)

This was one of those matchups that was a no-brainer when it came to winning; every single sports media outlet had Steelers pegged to win.  Against an elite passer such as Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, there was a doubt that the Chicago Bears secondary could stop him. But the Steelers didn’t quite understand the dual threat of Bears running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen. Together, they masterfully carved up the Steelers defense with precision and grit.

Howard rushed for 138 yards on 23 carries and two touchdowns, the latter in a 19-yard sprint in overtime to seal the deal. Cohen, Howard’s partner in crime, rushed for 78 yards on 12 carries. Another rookie that emerged was tight end Adam Shaheen, who not only pulled in his first TD but ran alongside Howard in the overtime hustle, blocking to keep his lane free.

Chicago Bears Fans Demand Change But at Whose Expense?

“Tru-bis-y, Tru-bis-ky, Tru-bis-ky” could be heard throughout Raymond James stadium by Chicago Bears fans.  After quarterback Mike Glennon displayed a substandard performance in a 29-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccanneers, it was more than any Bears fan could stomach. The chants shouted by fans to start the young rookie could be heard throughout social media, at times begging general manager to Ryan Pace to intervene.

But there is a reason for not playing the rookie, which I will share in a moment.

Granted, the Bears did not start off great, ushering yet another 0-2 start to the season, making it three years in a row.  To add insult to injury…well,  the stack of injuries that are once again plaguing this team.

But it is the performance of the starting quarterback that has the football world in a tizzy. Despite Glennon passing for 301 yards, and completing 31-45 passes, he finished the day with one touchdown and three turnovers.  He took ownership of those mental mistakes stating, “Obviously it was not what I envisioned or hoped,” Glennon said about his return to Tampa Bay. “Ultimately it shows how important taking care of the football is. Four turnovers in the first half is not going to win many football games, three of those fall on me. Ultimately I have to do a better job and give us a better chance to win.”
