Ten Thoughts on the NFL

We have a few thoughts on the NFL and we hope you enjoy them...

1) Do you remember when some were wondering if the New England Patriots were done? Way back when they were 1-2 after consecutive losses to the Jaguars and Lions some were ready to write them off.

It seems this happens every year to the Pats and 41-year old Tom Brady. They have a little early season adversity, pundits claim the end is near, they regroup and go on a run.

They beat the previously unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs in a...

NFL Power Rankings: The Bears lose a close one and fall in the rankings

We take a peek around some NFL Power Rankings to see how they rank the Bears.

These power rankings compilations are much more fun to do when the Chicago Bears are winning, but with them losing to another first place team, the Miami Dolphins, in tough conditions, maybe the expected drop down won’t be as great.

The Bears are still holding onto a slim lead in the NFC North, but the two teams chasing them both won, so...

SB Nation said the Bears “lost embarrassingly,” because “Brock...

Colts sign WR Dontrelle Inman

The Colts signed free agent wide receiver Dontrelle Inman, according to a team announcement. Inman takes the place of fellow receiver Marcus Johnson, who has been placed on IR. Inman is best known for his time with the Chargers. In 2016, he caught 58 passes for 810 yards and four touchdowns for the Bolts, putting him on the map as a reliable pass catcher. He might not see another 97-target season at this stage of his career, but Inman could find playing time in a group that is thin without...

Stock up, stock down: Bears vs. Dolphins

Finding the positives from Sunday’s Bears performance won’t be easy

Sunday’s overtime loss was such a gut punch for so many reasons, but a big reason is because it felt so familiar.

For the last four or five seasons we’ve watched this team make what we thought was progress, only to take a huge step back right when they had a chance to assert dominance.

After a chance for a huge road win and a 4-1 record, now they return to Chicago and have to host a surging Patriots squad and try to...

Stop blaming Matt Nagy and start blaming the Bears' $9 million kicker Cody Parkey — and GM Ryan Pace

A day later, Bears coach Matt Nagy was still getting criticism for his play-calling Sunday. As we all know, that’s a standing headline around here, whether it’s the rookie Nagy, the somnambulant John Fox, the odd Marc Trestman, the clipboard-crazed Mike Ditka, whoever.

Specifically, Nagy is drawing...

Nine most embarrassing blunders from NFL Week 6

Week 6 of the NFL season was loaded with some baffling errors from players around the league. The week started with a performance filled with blunders from the New York Giants on Thursday, and it continued right on into Sunday. Quarterbacks like Mitchell Trubisky, Jameis Winston, and Nathan Peterman just couldn’t get out of their own way. The exact opposite can be said about both Jalen Ramsey and the entire Tennessee Titans offensive line. They didn’t seem all that eager to get in...

Four downs: Bears try to shake off frustrating loss

A day following the Chicago Bears blew another fourth-quarter lead and lost to Miami in overtime, here are four thoughts and observations: 1. Shoddy tackling, particularly in the secondary, reared its ugly head for the second time this young season. Both Miami’s Albert Wilson and Green Bay’s Randall Cobb made the Bears deep patrol pay after catching short passes and […]

Bears rewind: Mitch Trubisky was far from great, but his deep ball is evolving

The Bears lost a game they should have won Sunday in Miami, squandering an 11-point third-quarter lead and numerous opportunities to put away the Dolphins and their backup quarterback, Brock Osweiler.

The Bears could spend an inordinate amount of time assessing what went wrong and why, but that...

Breaking news: Mitchell Trubisky is dynamite with a clean pocket

The Bears quarterback was lights out with minimal pressure against the Dolphins. A recurring theme among other Pro Football Focus insights.

The tendency to get reactionary in the midst of a crushing defeat can be overwhelming to some. The Bears lost a difficult and frustrating game to the Dolphins on Sunday: a game where they had their fair share of opportunities to come out on top. No one’s arguing that. What is notable is how they were able to stay afloat against Miami and what...

Don’t look now, but Mitchell Trubisky is catching fire

Amid several disappointing aspects of Sunday's loss, Chicago’s franchise quarterback continued his hot streak.

The Chicago Bears lost on Sunday in a game that they should have won.

After finally getting into a groove in the third quarter, the Bears blew an 11-point lead to the Miami Dolphins. From poor play calling to a lack of defensive stamina to several blown calls by referees, there were several factors that contributed to Chicago’s second loss of the season.

One of those factors,...

Chicago Bears: Week 6 game balls after heartbreaker in Miami

Despite the Bears 31-28 overtime loss to the Dolphins, we hand out worthy game balls for Week 6.

The streak continued Sunday, as the Chicago Bears failed to win a game coming out of the bye week for the fifth straight season. The roller-coaster ride of a game was probably one that was best to view as a fan outside of either team.

Regardless, the Bears are now 3-2 as they head home to face a red hot 4-2 New England Patriots team. Even with a Packers win tonight, the Bears will hold the...
