adam Posted October 2, 2022 Report Share Posted October 2, 2022 So wow, a lot to unpack already this year. So starting from the top, this team could easily be 0-3-1 right now and that is how it feels. In 4 weeks, there have been so few bright spots, it is incredible that this team is so how 2-2. I can't tell if there are halftime adjustments or the other team's get conservative and allow the Bears to run the ball more AND the also play more conservative and score less - or the defense is actually playing better in the second half. The entire offense is hot mess. In every passing week, it just seems more and more like either Fields is not the guy, or the team doesn't trust him and are not planning for him to be the long-term solution at QB after this year. Both can be true. That is 4 straight starts with 10 or fewer completions. I just don't think more reps are going to fix this. Every snap feels like he was just tossed into the game without a clue. Every part of his game has gotten worse, even his scrambling. I get that the O-Line is bad, but they are not the sole reason why he is struggling and not improving. It is 4 games now, it at least seems like Getsy is not a good play caller. Where is the "scheming guys open?" There is always a risk with taking coaches from teams with great QBs (look at DEN). It is also easy to run when the defense is giving you that when you are down. This game had some of the worst play calls I have seen and we just had Nagy. Getsy is way too predictable (already) and there is zero innovation in what he is doing. The Giants were literally had a free runner on every play and the Bears rarely, if ever, capitalized on it. Flus is ok, but man, he coaches to not lose (even when losing), and how many times do the Bears need to get beat on the play action bootleg before they address it? Jones had a better rushing day than any other player on the field with 6-68 yards and 2 TDs. Then Tyrod comes in and gets 30 more before getting concussed. Jones only had 8 completions and Gordon still looked bad out there in coverage. Poles drafted Gordon with his first pick. He has been the worst DB in the league using ANY metric, any. He could've taken George Pickens, a WR, who had 6 receptions for 102 yards today with 2 different QBs. To compensate, he drafted the oldest rookie who contributed to the loss today with a muffed punt with no one within 10 yards of him. 2 out of his top 3 picks are not looking good. Jones has been out 3 weeks and is still not part of the offense. So we drafted a "special" teamer with the 3rd round pick? Great. This regime is going to get a free pass on this year because of Fields, but they shouldn't. We just got beat by a team with a new Coach, GM, AND Daniel Jones at QB! This would've looked like rock bottom if they came into the game at 0-2-1. However, if they play like this every week, they will not win a single game in the Division and may eek out 2-3 wins against other teams if they are lucky. Not counting Week 1, the defense has allowed 20+ pts 3 times. In those 3 games the offense did not have a passing TD (12 straight quarters w/o a passing TD) and scored more than 13 once. If the Bears are going to play like this, they need to consider the fire sale by the deadline. Any vet over 28 consider moving, even Roquan and Monty. They aren't going to win much with them, so they might as well reset with some decent draft capital and start over. Are we in football purgatory or what? What did we do to deserve this misery?
