The Chicago bears win two in a row for the first time since 2015. When by now they’re expected to be at best 1-5. At 4-5 everyone is talking playoffs and the drafting of Mitchell Trubisky is seen as the best thing that could happen to this team. When we were thinking about that 1-5 start the question was which one. That answer was Pittsburgh. The only team Mike Glennon beat in his short stint as Bears starter. At three wins it was more than they won last year. At four wins people are starting to think their jobs are safe. The something happens that give the Bears and the city of Chicago even more hope: Aaron Rodgers gets hurt and possibly done for the season. No one wants see another player get injured in this time when parents are considering whether or not it’s the best thing to do to let their children play football. But a chance to beat Green Bay at least once in a season regardless who is behind center is always good.
We’re still several games away from .500 and after this weekend losing to the Packers minus Aaron Rodgers the mood is dark in the city. Once again every move by John Fox and Ryan Pace gets questioned and would there be some sort of distraction like a fight and the loser stalk the sideline pouty like. The offensive line is busted up, players playing out of position. No wide receiving corps to speak of and the defense at times prove they are human. This is why people are calling for the heads of the current regime to roll. This isn’t a team that is anywhere near playoff ready and won’t be anytime soon. They are however have more wins than the Browns and the Forty Niners combined.
Our Quarterbacks will look different next year especially with Glennon being gone. Will the Bears have to relive it all over again with Trubisky having to look over his shoulder. But this time against a talent that was drafted at his proper position in the draft not by giving up the house on a chance he’ll be the Quarterback of the future this time. No one wants a statue as their signal caller. Let me even more Monday morning quarterback it, I actually saw someone with a Glennon jersey in Chicago. Whoever sold that jersey is still laughing about that sale.
