There’s a thin line between winning and losing in the NFL.
The Bears were rolling along with three straight wins to start the season, sending hopes soaring around Chicago.
ime offers the opportunity for perspective, so I thought it would be a good idea to wait each week to give my thoughts on the Bears game.
After a drama-free 3-0 start to the season, one major question remained about Bears’ first-year head coach Marc Trestman.
After three efficient performances, quarterback Jay Cutler took a step back in the Bears first loss of the 2013 season.
Reggie Bush’s 37-yard touchdown run helped Detroit score 27 points in the second quarter and he accounted for 173 yards of offense to help the Lions beat the Chicago Bears 40-32 on Sunday.
It wasn’t exactly how the Bears usually do it, but they finally got pressure on the QB.
The chess match remains a big part of winning in the NFL.
Two weeks into the regular season, no two stats stand out more for the Chicago Bears than these.
The running game is not what it used to be.
The Bears promised that Matt Forte would be featured in Marc Trestman’s offense.
So that was fun. I think.
This is a rare game where the players know the opponent better than the coaching staff.
Marc Trestman called the Bears’ 24-21 win over the Bengals a “team win” but the head coach saw plenty of room for improvement, specifically with the running game and the defensive line.
Despite a new regime and refreshed philosophy, the Bears season opener had several elements of years past. Here’s my rapid reaction to a gutsy performance by the Bears to get to 1-0 and win the first game of the Marc Trestman-era.
Marc Trestman had waited his entire professional life for the chance to make that kind of call.
Jay Cutler passed to Brandon Marshall for the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter, helping the Chicago Bears rally for a 24-21 victory over the sloppy Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday and giving Marc Trestman a victory in his coaching debut.
If you draft at the end of the first round, no doubt you have lost sleep thinking about which direction you will go.
Seeing the names of rookie Bears this time of year is usually not a good thing.
Coaches have admitted the league has shifted toward the pass-first offense. It’s even inherently written into the rules.
