Bears Silent Approach Leads To Same Result: A Loss!

The Chicago Bears had the right approach coming into yesterday’s game against the Eagles. It was time to stop talking about what they needed to do in order to be a better team and just let their play speak for itself. Unfortunately the ending result was still not a positive one as the Bears would fall to the Eagles 24-20 and assured themselves of missing the playoffs for the third year in a row.

Positives:
The offense did a better job of managing the ball and did not turn the ball over in the red zone this game as they have done for most of the season. After falling behind 10-0 late in the first quarter, the defense was able to generate a decent pass rush during this game and sacked McNabb a couple of times while forcing three turnovers as well.

Negatives:
The running game was missing for the most part which has come to be a continuous theme for the Bears this season. While the Bears did force turnovers and won the turnover battle, they were only able to tally three total points off three turnovers. You have to be able to capitalize when other teams don’t take care of the ball and the Bears failed to do that. While Chicago did not turn the ball over in the red zone, they still had to settle for field goals instead of touchdowns which eventually catches up with a team before long. Jay Cutler had a decent game and only turned the ball over once. However, he overthrew open receivers on three separate occasions that would have easily resulted in touchdowns.

There is not a whole for the Bears to look forward to for the duration of the season and with the Cutler trade, the Bears are without their first and second draft picks so they will have to address their needs via free agency and it’s difficult to imagine any marquee players wanting to come to Chicago at this point but I could be wrong. Without a solid running game and receivers who can make plays down the field consistently, it’s hard to imagine the Bears doing much better for the rest of this season and future seasons as well. It’s just a shame that all the hype and expectations that came into this season never materialized and I’m sure that both the organization and the fans are collectively scratching their heads wondering where it all went wrong.
