Despite elements of negativity in their win over the Giants, the Bears are now one of 10 NFL teams to start the year 2-0 after Sunday’s action. Never, ever apologize for victories in the NFL, no matter how ugly they are.
The Giants aren’t a very imposing team, which should allow the Bears early opportunities to seize control of the game like in the opener, though those opportunities weren’t seized upon.
This game won’t be recorded in the annals of NFL history, but it was entertaining nonetheless. How the heck did the Bears win that game?
Lots of questions need to be answered and plenty must be proven for both sides in this unique opener with no preseason lead-up.
Many questions face the Bears after Sunday’s game, all focus will be on what kind of drastic improvements the team can make.
It was a game that showed the world how far off the Bears are from being legitimate contenders…instead the Bears are now limping across the finish line and into an off-season where they will lick their wounds.
Another generation of Bears fans will likely grow into adulthood not knowing exactly what elite QB play looks like in their favorite jersey. After Sunday, they know what it looks like from a one-in-a-generation talent.
Already a tough game against a tough competitor, the Sunday Night Football broadcast could be a tough listen with many reiterations of horror stories from the infamous draft of 2017.
Not that the Bears played outright poorly, but clearly they didn’t play well enough from players down to coaches to earn it. Attention turns now to what the future holds for the team.
Another win for the Bears and the playoff hopes stay alive while a loss brings an end to all the good vibes in Chicago for 2019.
