    I watched the Bears game after I got back from Cincinnati, not knowing the score. As usual they start out with a three and out and give up three points but come back and eventually take the ten point lead. The two long field goals from Pinero were great and a nice drive on the only TD by the Bears. They might have gotten more on the field goal drives but both of those started out inside the 20 while the TD was from the 25. Lousy officiating, especially on pass interference and both roughing the passer calls, abounded. The defense played great and the offense looked like it was their second preseason game. Trubisky does have to get better especially with the long throws. But that was a nice drive he engineered at the end and he did make the pass to get them in position for winning FG. Hopefully he and offense can improve each week. So some good and some bad, but better than last week. OK, now you can accuse me of drinking the Kool-Aid.

      Bears' biggest problem is playcalling, especially after a penalty. It's like they have no gameplan for coming back from a holding call. So all it takes is one mistake to kill a drive.

      I like Nagy a lot as a coach, but now that the league has a year of film on him, he needs to make some adjustments.

            Yeah, that was a crap game. And I think Miami's a stone cold lock for #1 overall.

                  Bears got beat on both offensive and defensive lines in London. A game that should have been easy turns into an upset and with the Pack and Vikes winning they are third going into bye week esentiallly 1-1/2 behind Pack. I think Kyle Long has seen better days and Leno is over rated.

                      I'm trying to figure out why they were trying to rush the punter on that one. We had the lead and all we needed was to get the ball back. And that next fake shouldn't have been a surprise.

                      Wrong thread, he killed me this week in fantasy.

                      As for the Bears, or any other team with QB problems, why can't these offensive "geniuses" figure out a way to run the ball creatively?

                      Everyone says that most backs are interchangeable, but as I see it, that's because very few teams emphasise the run anymore.

                        Your O-Line has to step up if you're going to rely on the run. The Bears O-line has been an issue.

                          But isn't that why you hired a genius? To cover up your flaws with genius type stuff?

                          Since I have lived half of my adult life with geniuses managing or coaching my teams, I may be asking a bit too much...

                            what in the hell is a free kick?

                            1 sec left in the half and Carolina got a free kick from 50 yds. But the defense wasn't allowed to be on the field, He didn't even have to kick the ball from the usual 6-8 yds behind the line of scrimmage like a normal FG.

                            thats some bs, I gotta google that

                            https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...tch-free-kick/

                            thats weird, the defense can return it but not try to block it

                              Yes, a strange rule that isn't used much. It only makes sense late in half or game if you are in field goal range.

                              As to Bears O-line, in what is not a surprise, Kyle Long goes on IR. That's it for his career, at least in Chicago. A very good player who got injured too much.
