He’s not quite a lion. But he is Bear the Cat. And on this album cover he represents how I feel about this Bears team right now.
Why Do I Like the Chicago Bears This Week?
I always like the Chicago Bears. And they can’t play as badly as last week, right?
An Original Limerick
I once bet a horse called Fox
Who slowly came out of the blocks
He’d pick up some speed
And get near the lead
But leave me with only my socks
Three Reasons The Bears Win
This section is now an exercise in futility since the Bears have shown little interest in studying their opponents and attacking their weaknesses.
- Detroit Can’t Run the Ball. Only Miami, Arizona and Cincinnati get less on the ground weekly and those are three terrible offensive teams. The Bears defense looked bad a week ago but the primary reason is they were pushed around at the point of attack by Green Bay and delivered their worst performance against the run all season. Shouldn’t be an issue this week.
- The Trubisky Development Train Keeps a’ Rollin. While the film of the 2017 season was taken over by director Lars von Trier Sunday, the future was not so bleak. Mitch Trubisky had his most prolific day throwing the football and Detroit’s secondary can be beaten through the air. (The Lions were the first secondary to make DeShone Kizer look like a professional quarterback.) Seeing Adam Shaheen and Dontrelle Inman develop a rapport with the young signal-caller, even with limited opportunities, should lead to some productive performances down the stretch and those performances should start Sunday at home.
