Chicago Bears: Loss to Giants proves these three things

Adjust Comment Print

Last week, Bears bettors were shocked when news broke that Mitchell Trubisky would miss Chicago's Thanksgiving game in Detroit due to a shoulder injury.

Besides the Cohen pass on what appeared to be a sweep, the Giants saw Beckham throw and catch touchdowns, and Chicago nose tackle Akiem Hicks dive over on fourth down from 1 yard on a play made famous by Perry in the Bears glory days in the mid-1980s. For wide receiver Odell Beckham, on the other hand, playing quarterback isn't almost as hard as it looks.

"I'll tell you this, though-I've said it all along-we've got a group here that's really coming".

The 954 rushing yards are the most by a Giants rookie running back and based on his performance on Sunday, and how Barker Mayfield imploded on Sunday throwing three interceptions in the Browns 29-13 loss to the Texans, Barkley is the clear favorite to win Offensive Rookie of the Year. Our guys are going to go back and watch the tape and say, 'Man we could have been better there. The Bears, who have a 1 1/2 game lead over the second-place Vikings, have averaged a 27.7 household rating locally, which represents nearly 900,630 homes.

The Bears have more to worry about than their run defense going up against the Rams.

On Monday, Shurmur was asked if Lauletta moving to number two on the depth chart is an indication that he's closer to seeing some game action.

This is not a case of some media clown claiming he knows more about offense than the head coach, and I actually understood the timeout he called setting up the Giants' field goal at the end of the first half and refuse to criticize people with hindsight. "We had moments of it, we just didn't play four quarters, which is what we need to do when we have tough games like this". And I didn't do that today.

The second first-half TD drive was nine plays for 74 yards, including eight runs for 39 yards with a 25-yarder from Howard to start the drive.

Nagy's reaction to that success was to hand the ball off twice to Howard in the second half - the only two handoffs of the half - and drop to pass 33 times. And so, I would've loved to be able to call more runs, but they did a pretty good job getting into our backfield and stopping the run.
