Bears lose close game to Broncos

In the end, a loss is a loss, but the 17-15 loss to the Denver Broncos this weekend showed that they have the defense to be able to hold down a powerful team such as the Broncos, but the offense and play calling need much improvement.

With a fourth and goal on  the four yard line, the Bears coaching staff decided to go for it and ended up turning it over in the end zone and the Broncos ended up winning by two points.

“I think we hadn’t made many trips down there, and when we had, we hadn’t scored touchdowns,” Head Coach John Fox said in post game comments.  ” It had been kind of a field-goal game. At that point in the game, we felt that was going to be maybe our last opportunity so we were aggressive and came up short on fourth-and-four”

The Bears have little time to reflect on their decision as they have a quick turnaround and play again this Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, against the Green Bay Packers (7-3) at Lambeau Field.

The next home game is scheduled for December 9th against the San Francisco 49ers.  Get your tickets to the game and be a part of the action!  Plenty of great seats are still available!

Bears open preseason tomorrow against Dolphins

The Chicago Bears plan on getting back to smash mouth football and it all begins with their running game and back Matt Forte.

“When you run the ball, it’s more like an attack feeling,” Forte said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “They like smash-mouth football, where you can bloody somebody’s nose and run and hit people. And then as a running back, you can get rhythm and kind of wear on defenses and wear them down, where that pass rush will be a lot less harder in the fourth quarter.”

With the return of the run game to the offense, it is less likely you will see quarterback Jay Cutler having to throw 50 times a game.

“I think myself, the rest of the quarterbacks and the rest of the offense for that matter really like what we’re doing right now,” Cutler told reporters Tuesday. “We really enjoy the coaches, being around them. There’s a lot of energy from this group. So it’s fun day-in and day-out.”

Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your Chicago Bears~!
