CHICAGO (CBS) — Despite his team’s disastrous performance in a 55-14 loss to the Packers, Bears head coach Marc Trestman said he remains confident in his staff.
“It is bad … there’s no getting around it,” Trestman said in an interview Monday morning with WBBM Newsradio’s Josh Liss. “You can’t sugar coat this. You can’t sugar coat the last three weeks, and the way we played.”READ MORE: Mayor Lori Lightfoot Sets Goal To Get 77% Of Eligible Chicagoans Vaccinated By End Of The Year
Despite having two weeks to plan for the game in Green Bay, Chicago looked completely unprepared from the start Sunday night, committing a penalty on the opening kickoff. Things only went downhill from there, as the Bears failed to enter Packers territory until the second quarter and outdid their Week 8 debacle against the Patriots by falling behind 42-0 by halftime.READ MORE: 3 Stores Broken Into On Northwest Side; ATM Stolen, Glass Shattered
“We didn’t play well in any phase,” Trestman said. “I thought we were ready to play. We had three outstanding days of practice. The focus was good. The energy was very good. Didn’t translate to the game at all, from the start, with the penalties on our special teams to our inability, to move the football, and our inability to stop them. It was a total team breakdown in all three phases.”
