(CBS) It’s been an ugly start for the 0-2 Bears, who haven’t done anything particularly well on the football field.
It’s with that in mind that tight end Zach Miller emphasizes Chicago must find what its bread-and-butter is.
“We’re trying to find that,” Miller said on the Boers and Bernstein Show on Tuesday evening. “I feel like we’re still trying to find our identity. We’ve got guys in the mix now, we’ve been together two weeks (with a full squad since the Josh Sitton signing). Communication up front, everything is going to hopefully improve as we continue on. We got to find what we’re good at and continue to do it. And we need to do it fast.”
Miller acknowledged it’s been an adjustment playing under new offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, who took over this season for Adam Gase, who left to become coach of the Dolphins.
“We’re just trying to find a rhythm,” Miller said. “It’s one of those things where it’s going to take time, but it can’t take too much time. You can’t make any excuses, but that’s the reality of the situation. You got to get good at what you do, and you got to do it fast. We’re kind of in that time frame of finding who we are.”
Miller believes physical and mental troubles have hurt the Bears early on, and he wants to play a role in keeping the team’s minds right.
“When we’re playing well and we shoot ourselves in the foot, we got to have somebody step up and say, ‘OK hey, let’s move forward and let’s keep on going,'” Miller said. “I feel like I can do that.”
