Bears prepare for Eagles

Wentz enters his first NFL road game

It looked like old times as the Chicago Bears got off to a rough start last week against the Houston Texans who forced five sacks on quarterback Jay Cutler in the 23-14 loss.

bears-4Cutler finished the game 16-29 for 216 yards, a touchdown and an interception while his rookie counterpart finished 22 -35 for 231 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

The Bears must now get ready to face Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles but Bears rookie Deiondre Hall may have inside information about how to try and stop Wentz, who threw for 278 yards and two touchdowns in a 29-10 over the Browns last weekend. Hall played against Wentz while at Northern Iowa.

“Dude has a cannon,” Hall said.  “He has a cannon for an arm. And he was always a really smart quarterback. He reads defenses very well from my experiences against him. Plus, he’s not afraid to run if he gets in trouble.”

” He was making NFL-type passes in college, throwing from the far hash to the opposite sideline on a comebacker. And he’s got enough zip on it by far. It’s crazy.”

It all goes down Monday night and you still have the opportunity to be there so grab your tickets and help cheer on your Chicago Bears over the Philadelphia Eagles!

Bears drop another AFC game

The Bears came into Foxborough knowing  that a tough road to victory lay ahead of them.  They were well prepared but were not prepared for Tom Brady at his very best.  Some are saying it  was the best performance of his storied career.  Brady went 30-35 for 354 yards and five touchdowns.

“I love coaching Tom. I’ve been fortunate to have him the whole career since he’s been here,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “He does a great job of executing the team game plan.

As for Marc Trestman, his future as the Head Coach of the Bears remains to be seen.  The Bears have now dropped two in a row and four out of their last five games. But it was the Patriots ability to score three touchdowns in less than one minute in the second quarter that may have opened that door, beginning  the “chemistry” problem conversation the Bears are evidently going through in the process.

The Bears go into the bye week with many questions to be answered and things will certainly not be easier when they return to action, on the road visiting Green Bay.  Plenty of great seats and cheap tickets are still available!  Get yours now!
