The Case for 10-6

| July 29th, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 9.21.26 AM

It is understood that camp has yet to begin and injuries can always pile up and derail a season before Labor Day. But at this point in the calendar, the Bears look an awful lot like a 10-6 team. Why? Five reasons.

Reason #1: Run Defense

The old baseball maxim is you need to be strong defensively up the middle. I’ve always argued the same goes for football. If you can clog the middle of the field, stop the run, cover the tight end in the seam, prevent the home run, you can defend any offense in the sport.

The 2016 Bears have the potential to be great up the middle. Hicks and Goldman are immovable objects. Freeman and Trevathan are top tier middle linebackers. Amos, while still developing, is an already terrific closer. This crop of players has the ability to make opposing offenses one-dimensional. And that will free up a pretty solid collection of pass rushers to wreck the game.

Stat Prediction: Bears will jump from 22nd in yards rushing allowed per game to top 10.

Reason #2: Fast Start

Bears open at Houston, playing a Texans team that better hope Brock Osweiler is worth the ridiculous amount of money they gave him. They are then home to Philly, playing a team in transition. They then travel to Dallas to play a Cowboys team they’ve beaten handily over the last few years. Then home to Calvin Johnson-less Detroit.

Stat Prediction: Bears open 4-0.

Reason #3: The Belief in Kevin White

The “Kevin White Thing” has played out across the media landscape for the last few months. There was a groundswell of oohs and aahs from onlookers (including teammates) when they caught their first glimpses of the freakishly athletic wideout. That groundswell was, of course, met with a media/fan backlash and a chorus of “hold your horses!” Some, especially here, found balance between the two.

Is White going to be a polished route runner in year one? No. But the Bears won’t ask him to be. His ability to take an innocuous bubble screen for 35 yards will command the attention of opposing defensive coordinators, force them to slide their best tacklers White’s way and free up large chunks of the field for Alshon Jeffery.

Reason #4: Parity Comes to the NFC North

The 2015 Bears were not good.

They split with Green Bay. Lost to Detroit twice by a total of 7 points (including barely losing in Week 17 with a college roster). And missed an easy field goal to split with Minnesota.

The gap was minimal. And they’ve closed it.

Stat Prediction: The 1-5 division record will be no worse than .500 in 2016.

Reason #5: Because It’s What This Coach Does

Carolina. 7-9 year one. 11-5 year two.

Denver. 8-8 year one. 13-3 year two.

Chicago. 6-10 year one.

Stat Prediction: Bears finish 10-6 in year two.

    Cowboys are a lot better than you think this year. They are calling themselves Doomsday Offense.

    They look balanced and the OL is tough. Romo says he is healthy. That game will be tough.

    • Scharfinator

      Depends if Romo has broken his spine again yet.

    • Big Mike

      They’re all tough. Winning a game in the NFL is a big deal.

    • Johnnywad

      Romo says he healthy……….

    • CanadaBear

      They will have 3 or 4 guys sitting out suspensions when the Bears play them. That should help. I’m still not buying what people are selling. 8-8.

      • beninnorcal

        8-8 is still an improvement if you ask me. If we’re still 8-8 in ’17, then we have problems.

        • CanadaBear

          Totally agree. I’m not going to be disappointed with 8-8 if we can see the team is truly on the rise. I hope I’m wrong and all the 10-6 (or better) guys are correct. Can’t wait!

          • willbest

            I will. Pace has had his 2 off-seasons, and no cap issues preventing him from doing exactly what he wanted. If the Bears aren’t playing meaningful football in week 16. He shouldn’t have been hired.

          • CanadaBear

            Considering what a shit sandwiched he was handed, I’m not going to get too worked up over 8-8 this year. My issue with Fox is the team coming out flat numerous times last year.

          • Big Mike

            Hard to get jacked up with pickles at an and the JV at WR and LB

          • CanadaBear

            No doubt but with the Bears luck you know at least one or two guys that the team can least afford to lose to injury will be dinged up all year.

          • Big Mike

            Barring key injuries. Agreed

          • CanadaBear

            Always have to use that disclaimer.

        • willbest

          If they go 8-8 with 25 million in cap hanging around, I am going to be hopping mad. None of the other NFCN teams look like worldbeaters.

      • Big Mike

        Playoffs or bust this year

        • CanadaBear

          Hope you’re happy at the end of the regular season!

          • Big Mike

            Me too

        • BearDown100393

          If bust then what?

          • willbest

            I fume about it all off-season and still watch them next year.

          • BearDown100393

            LOL, and then what?

    • Sactowns#1

      Biggest thing, stopping the run. They have two very good RB’s now so this will be a tall order.

      • Sactowns#1

        Oh the cowboys. I just found out they will only have one decent RB to start the season. So “Cowboys RB Darren McFadden fell and broke his elbow while trying to catch his falling iphone from breaking. You can’t make this stuff up”

    • We play them well for whatever reason and eveyone of note on d is suspended for drugs

  • Leon Waffla

    Secondary will be much improved thanks to the front 7. D will be dominant. Special teams will be better thanks to draft, speed, focus it’s received in the off season. Kevin White will show in flashes why he could be the best WR in last year’s draft. But WTF did we do this offseason with the O-Line. It’s a mess. Talk about a lack of backups, there aren’t enough starters to go round. Kyle Long is Kyle Long but he just got injured. Bobby Massie has been historically dubious pass blocking. We’ll have a rookie at LG, a 7th round draft pick in Charles Leno that pro football focus ranked as one of the worst in the league protecting Cutler’s blindside; and knitting it all together at Center we’ve got Grasu who looked totally at sea at times. If you look at Cutler’s record he can do ok even with a diminished receiving core, but when he’s truly struggled in the past is with repeated QB pressure. When will the Bears learn and commit to a decent O-Line? Throughout Cutler’s playing tenure in Chicago we’ve had the worst O-lines I can remember. Don’t even begin to ask why Pace cut Matt Slauson, a decision that for all his smart moves this offseason, borders on incompetence. 9-7 with the offence stymied by constant pressure, interceptions, fumbles and a line that fails to provide holes to a committee of backup running backs.

    • Swing Tackle of Destiny

      Leon Waffla?

      How about Bruce Butch? Pee Wee Embee? Scooty Scharf?

      • You’re about to get Jericho’d

        Haha, that’s not me

      • Leon Waffla

        Torque Crap is my preferred sobriquet. 🙂

  • BearDown100393

    Hard to buy a 10-6 record without mentioning the offensive line. Without (at least) a mediocre line (or a safety net in the now departed Matt Forte), Jay Cutler will be running for his life (again). The defense should be improved but it cannot be counted on to put points on the board.

    • Big Mike

      I’ll say. I’m over Forte. I loved Matt Forte. Most underrated back in the NFL.. Until the Bears let him. Forte’s pass catching stats last year were inflated by the absence of NFL receivers. Under Trestman they were inflated because of over use. As a running back he was consistently good. Not great, good. His true strength was how he took care of the football, his blitz pick up skills and his value as a teammate. When you add it all up. Yes indeed Matt Forte was a very good back. Maybe borderline great. But to get wrapped up in how his absence will somehow alter the Bears season, I don’t see. Teams didn’t really game plan for Matt Forte. He didn’t alter defenses. It’s not like any of the backs the Bears have are going to just fall down if there’s hole opened for them. I’m of the school that in the NFL RBs are somewhat interchangeable.

      • MB30SD

        thank you for that rare slice of logic/reason pie, that is usually VERY absent around these parts when talking about forte.

        I showed my daughter a video of walter this morning… my god, now THAT was a running back. RIP sweetness.

        • Big Mike

          Forte for all of his value didn’t create yardage. He took most of everything that was available. A very valuable commodity. Walter made yards where none existed.

          • CanadaBear

            I don’t think any Bears fan will confuse Forte and Walter. Forte may or may not be a fringe candidate for the HOF if he has 3-4 more productive years. Walter might have been the best all-round RB in the history of the NFL.

          • Sactowns#1

            Correction- Best all around player.

          • SC Dave

            This. Despite what Big Mike may say, teams ABSOLUTELY game planned to stop Matt Forte. Far more than they game planned to stop, say, Jay Cutler.

          • Big Mike

            Comparing Forte to Payton wasn’t my point. My point was why I don’t think the Bears will miss Forte as much as every seems to think they will

          • CanadaBear

            I hope you’re right. I totally understood getting rid of Forte.

        • SC Dave

          No one compares Forte to Payton, MB. Since Emmitt retired, there has been one guy in the same ball park. One.

          So to say Forte is not Payton has no importance.

          • MB30SD

            they were somewhat orthagonal thoughts actually

      • Johnnywad

        Forte is already sidelined with a bad hammy. Not a good sign for an older HB in July. Pace may have parted ways at just the right time.

        • SC Dave

          I’d be more worried about it in September, were I a Jets fan.

      • CanadaBear

        It’s been a long time since the cupboard was bare at RB in Chicago. Hope we don’t revisit the Ken Grandberry days. I’m only partially kidding. If the RB’s shit the bed in the passing game, the Bears O will be stuck in neutral (esp with the suspect OL). I think a lot of RB’s are interchangeable but the guy who led the league in yds from scrimmage for the last 8 years probably isn’t one of them.

        • Big Mike

          It’s not bare. Forte led the league on offense a number of years because the Bears offense was incapable of doing anything else

          • CanadaBear

            I totally agree but he was up to it. That’s not something you can just assume with other backs. I read today that Langford looked good catching the ball yesterday. Hope that continues.

          • SC Dave

            You say this, and contend other teams did not game plan to stop him? Seriously?

          • Big Mike

            That’s one opinion. Mine is different. Seeing as how you always seem to see the worst, I’ll stick with my opinion, which is that the Bears won’t miss Forte as much as everyone thinks. I loved Matt Forte. I don’t think it was a mistake to let him walk. He was very productive with the Bears.

            Were I a DC in the NFL he would have been accounted for in my weekly game plan, but I would not lose sleep over Forte. Mostly check downs, screens and so on are what I would focus on. Everything else is standard fare.

          • SC Dave

            I’m not losing sleep over it.

            Bottom line is we will never know how much we’ll miss Matt, as there won’t be a before and after White and a different oline.

            Matt is no longer a bear, so it doesn’t matter anyway. I wish him well, until they play the Bears.

          • Big Mike

            Excellent. That’s what sports and football is for. I do wish him well.

  • TBC

    The case against:

    The Bears still suck.

    • you can still suck and go 10-6. your team has shown us that much.

      • MB30SD

        OHHHHHHHH SNAAAAAAAAPPPP!!!

    • beninnorcal

      Hey Cheesy, I thought I was never going to get to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. How was your turkey?

  • beninnorcal

    I’m not seeing 4-0. This looks like a .500 squad to me. Defense is improved, wish I could say the same about the offense. The Matt Slauson question will still be on everyone’s minds when this season is over. Wtf, Pace?

  • CanadaBear

    When did Amos “already become a terrific closer”?

  • beninnorcal

    I do agree l, though, that these Bears are going to give the rest of the North some problems.

    • BearDown100393

      The Bears are supposed to be better than the Vikings and Lions. We should expect to beat those teams. And every game against the Packers should be competitive and winnable.

      • beninnorcal

        I think that’s kinda what I said. Although I’d say we’re about even with Minny, Detroit will be last IMO.

        • CanadaBear

          The Bears haven’t beaten the Loins since 2012, let’s hope the Beloved smoke ’em twice this year.

      That car is about $140k used.
      A new 911R is about $500k. If you could get one.

          • CanadaBear

            I can believe that. I’m rarely on the mainland these days and I avoid Vancouver (or any huge population base) unless there is a reason to go. Getting old ain’t for sissies!

    The lesbian is right screwed without CJ to throw to. Incredibly screwed. That puts the Lions in the NFC cellar.

    But the Vikes and the Packers both look better than the Bears this year.

    • CanadaBear

      That’s pretty much how I see it too but for some reason those fucking Loins keep beating the Beloved. 6 in a row.

      • SC Dave

        They had a lot of ground to make up. Right now, it’s 96-71-5 good guys.

        BTW, current lion’s streak is tied for their longest with 1968-1970.

        • CanadaBear

          I dislike the Loins more than the Fudgies or the BiQueens. It seems inconceivable they have won the last 6 in a row. Their fans are more delusional than any in the division. They have one decent year and their fans talk smack like they are a dynasty. Not to mention all the dirty stuff when Gym Shorts was there.

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      don’t forget the Lions picked up Boldin. He is not what he used to be but still catches everything. Unless he has a massive drop off like Andre Johnson you can’t count him out.

          I never expect a “journalist” to suck Jay’s dick and declare he’s great, but Jesus. Acknowledge his deficiencies and also acknowledge the deficiencies of the teams he played on. Brady or Rodgers would not look good either with the Olines, O Coordinators, lackluster receivers, and awful Defenses Jay has been forced to play with. They may look better than Jay but who knows because they never had to play with those awful combinations. So, I think, a dry lackluster handjob from a “journalist” is the least I could expect, especially this time of year.

          What’s next, Trib? Dig up Royko and prop him at a desk?

          • EnderWiggin

            We could use a Royko about now…

          • AlbertInTucson

            One dead Royko beats TWO live Bernie’s.

  • AlbertInTucson

    Bernie Lincicome or Jay Mariotti?

    And remember, DEATH is not an option.

      makes me wish I was like Helen Keller

      • AlbertInTucson

        He REPORTS (I I use that term lightly) like HE was Helen Keller.

        • SC Dave

          Keller was far more perceptive, Al.

          • MB30SD

            She had awareness dave

    The seven games Jeff didn’t mention.

    @Colts
    Jaguars
    @Buccaneers
    @Giants
    Titans
    Niners
    Redskins

    Assuming he is right and we start 4-0 and split the division, that’s six wins accounted for (the Detroit win being one of the first four). Of the remaining games, the Bears would need to go 4-3, which is not an unrealistic expectation. The Jags, Titans, Niners and Redskins are all very beatable, especially at Soldier Field. The Colts will be tough on the road, but the Giants and Buccaneers are also very beatable. Not saying we win all of those games, but if we can predict a 4-0 start, we can predict a 4-3 run down the non-division stretch.

    But I will say, the Jaguars, Titans and Buccaneers are all sporting young franchise QBs and are all going to be better than expected. And the Redskins and Niners are both very much wildcards this year. And the Giants? Well they’re always competitive, but Coughlin isn’t around so who knows what happens there.

    • MB30SD

      Colts and giants nb, the rest of those teams look to be heading towards the garbage heap again… maaaybe the skins if their D is tough. My god the 9ers offseason was a slow motion dumpster fire.

      • Bender McLugh

        of those teams only the Giants O scares me, and not that much

      • That Guy

        I’d put the Jags at the top of the “likely to succeed” bunch. They’re doing it right over there, and that passing offense is quite potent. Though they’ve still got a couple more years before I’d call them true contenders.

        • MB30SD

          I agree… their D looks beastly… I just can’t see it. I wouldn’t be surprised, but we’ll see.

      Chris is Kyles brother. Jake is unrelated as far as I know.

  • Swing Tackle of Destiny
    • CanadaBear

      He’s a man-mountain. Seems to have a bit of an attitude. Gotta like that!

  • Swing Tackle of Destiny
    • EnderWiggin

      I like his attitude.

    Goldman in the cart

    • Huge Bear’s Penis

      just heat exhaustion.

      • willbest

        My understanding is shortly before he was in a scuffle with Whitehair. Bruised labia is probably more like it.

        • AlbertInTucson

          I see no reason to accuse Goldman of that at this point in time.

          • willbest

            I was just applying MB’s Jeffery goggles to all players he loves.

            Incidentally, it was also reported that Jeffery embarrassed neckbrace on a bomb from Cutty in 7 on 7 today.

          • beninnorcal

            Neck Brace= Fuller?

          • willbest

            Been his nickname around here for a while

          • MB30SD

            I love goldman? That’s new to me.

            anyway… pussy!

          • MB30SD
          • willbest

            Hmm… I thought you were telling me he was going to be legit. Or was that another Irish man crush? Maybe it was big mike

          • MB30SD

            I think mike.

            My bandwagon guys are:
            * Langford
            * urine
            * our entire starting front 7

            Everyone else on d has to prove something.

  • AlbertInTucson

    DeAndre Hopkins returns to Texans’ camp.

    • EnderWiggin

      Sorry, Fuller.

  • Doc Nitty

    Anybody watching this Cubs-Mariners game? It’s been a great Series.

    C’mon M’s!

    • Bender McLugh

      BOOOOOO!!!! GO CUBBIES BABY YEAH!
