I want Nick Foles in already after only one drive

The funniest thing about the entire swing in this game is Bears going for it towards end of half with 3 straight passes which resulted in a punt deep in their own territory where Detroit eventually scord off great field position.

BIG DICK NICK


WE WANT BIG DICK NICK

Perfect example. Trubisky forces it in to Allen Robinson who needed to make a spectacular catch to convert the 1st down late in 3rd when Jimmy Graham was wide open and never had anybody within 10 yards of him....

Crazy game.

How do you handicap that nonsense?

Neither team wanted to win.

The Lions were down three cornerbacks (Okudah, Trufant and nickel corner Coleman).

How does Matt Patricia call for a 55-yard field goal attempt when leading by 10 with about four minutes left in the fourth quarter?

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Keep this in mind about Trubisky

IF he gets hurt - the contract next year is something Da Bears will still have to pay. If he doesn't - they don't.

Just like with RG3 and the WA Futbol team - if he doesn't play he can't get hurt and then he is toast

I'm more concerned about the Bears paying Trubisky for 7 more years.

Great call, because Trubisky wasn't playing bad enough to be benched for poor play. There are other factors at work and you nailed it.

When playing in Atlanta, the Bears were not executing in the red zone. Can't trade FG's for TD's there. IDK if they shrunk the playbook for Mitch, playing not to lose instead. The coach's job may be on the line as Chicago media constantly bring up Mahomes and Watson.

I do fear Foles as he's proven not to be durable, and what happens if he sucks for a game?

Trubisky wasn't reading defenses correctly plus some throws were inaccurate.
One INT he saw man instead of zone.
Now Nagy can run the offense he wants.
Listen to the postgame comments from Foles...night and day compared to Trubisky

Foles looked impressive visually. The numbers weren't as impressive; 29 attempts under 190 yards. I only could see what the Red Zone showed so didn't see everything. The INT wasn't his fault, and I believe they had a TD called back by a penalty.

I think the instant reaction is to start to think overs with the Bears and that may be a mistake. They've played 3 poor defenses in Detroit, the Giants and Atlanta. Detroit and Atlanta are dominant over teams, and the Giants aren't only because their offense is so impotent. But a bit surprised the Bears didn't open as small faves, but lets face it; home field is worth no more than 1 point.

Kinda of funny how this all played out and they are 3-0. I didnt have anything on the game but it was interesting to see the charge it gave the team when the change was made
