Bears ugly performance can motivate change

New England Patriots 38 – Chicago Bears 31

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.

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.

In front of fans and media personnel, the Bears entered into practice with the mindset of stretching the field, working out the receivers, polishing quarterbacks footwork and reads, blocking and tackling skills and perfecting field goals and kickoffs.

Chicago Bears 2017 Season Ends in Hope for the Future

Record: 5-11

Country singer Garth Brooks said it best:

“And now I’m glad I didn’t know, the way it all would end the way it all would go. Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain, but I’d have to miss the dance.”-The Dance

Some people would have preferred to sit out the 2017 season, but something about it intrigued fans to continue watching, cheering and remain loyal.  

Was it the quarterback controversy that would inevitably take place once rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky was drafted?  Even after the Chicago Bears brass had preached that newly signed QB Mike Glennon would be the starter, they tried desperately to stick to their guns but to no avail. It was his performance that lacked the spark needed on offense…or was it?

Kevin White’s Series of Unfortunate Events

Official Chicago Bears Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

This was supposed to be his year. Do or die he was going to prove once and for all he is not a bust. The Chicago Bears 2015 number one draft pick, Kevin White, has been riddled with a series of unfortunate injury events that has swallowed up any NFL career dream he may have had.

With a fractured scapula, he is gone for the season and placed on IR.  What a travesty.

White redshirted in 2010 at Lackawanna College, hoping it would set the stage for a spectacular season. But due to a missed financial aid deadline, he was ineligible. This forced him to sit out the second season. (Event #1) But, he waited patiently and became a sensational senior at West Virginia.
