I mean, really, what’s the point?
When Matt Barkley enters a game for your team, one of two things is happening. Either (a) your team has a 65-point lead or (b) your team has no other choice. For the Bears, it’s the latter. And the Bears will be non-competitive in every game he plays moving forward.
- Barkley spoiled what looked to be a heroic performance from Vic Fangio and the Bears defense. With Bausby and LeBlanc in at a corner, the Bears defense dominated the game for much of three quarters until, you know, Barkley. When you see the defense play this well you can understand why many, myself included, thought this was going to be a top ten unit coming into the season.
- If you were looking for a breakout game from Leonard Floyd, you got it. Two sacks, a forced fumble and a touchdown was exactly the kind of head-turning performance Floyd needed. Nice to see the defensive coaching staff turn him loose on an opposing QB as opposed to having him run ten yards downfield with tight ends.
- I have never seen a team deal with injuries like this. It’s reached comical levels and from the sound of it, Kyle Long isn’t going to be playing football any time soon.
I have nothing else to say.
