The Chicago Bears had started the preseason at 0-2. Neither losses were blowouts nor were the game against the Denver Broncos. But there are some things that were revealed, exposed or just plain obvious with the Bears.
Trey Burton is the real deal. Every time he touched the ball it was a stamp of approval. There was no doubt he was worth the grab in the offseason. In the first series, Burton caught 4 receptions for 45 yards and one touchdown.
The big tight end seems to be quarterback Mitchell Trubisky’s favorite target and rightly so. Burton certainly knows his routes and determines to finish them with a completion. The way he can square his shoulders along the lines to catch a pass is textbook football.
With the induction of linebackers Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, it was only fitting for the Chicago Bears and the Baltimore Ravens to duke it out on the field. This allowed the Bears and Ravens to start training camp early and get the cobwebs out after long disappointing seasons.
The question has always been, with all the off season acquisitions and NFL Draft picks, did the Bears do enough to have a promising season?
Well the answer is YES! As with all teams, everything looks good on paper but does it transfer on the field? Is the new culture one that is being embraced by the whole team, not just a few? I’m glad to say so far, yes!
