The one thing that every NFL rookie or second year player will tell interviewers, is that the toughest adjustment from college to professional football is the speed of the game and the athleticism of the players. In major college football, a player’s teammates were likely all-conference, and undoubtedly the best athletes in their respective high schools. Yet, there is still is gap between the good and the best players. In the pros, virtually every player on an NFL roster … (read more…)
Last Sunday, the 2020 Chicago Bears gave up 19 points to the Colts and lost. This time Chicago gave up another nineteen, but scored 20 to win, and hand Tom Brady his first loss to the Bears franchise. The certain hall of famer had led his teams to a staggering fifty-nine fourth quarter or overtime comeback wins.
Instead it was QB Nick Foles in his second full start with the Bears who led his squad on a final game -win … (read more…)
The magic ran out. The clock struck midnight for Cinderella Chicago Bears in a 19-11 home Loss to the Indianapolis Colts. There were no magic tricks up Nick Foles. Just brute force from a Colts defense that keep the cardiac Bears out of the end zone until there was less than two minutes to play.
By then, it was too late. There would be no fourth quarter comeback in this game. The Colts defense was that good. The Bears managed only 28 rushing yards. That allowed … (read more…)
Nick Foles is the perennial runner-up, always the bridesmaid and never the bride, or if you will, served perpetual understudy. Take your pick.

Two weeks, two close calls for the 2020 Chicago Bears. Once again, they held off an opponent inside the red zone with time running out. On Sunday, it was the New York Giants attempting a fourth quarter comeback that fell short for a Bears 17-13 win.
The biggest difference between the season opener and the home opener, is that Chicago led from start to finish. However, Giants QB Daniel Jones took his team from his own … (read more…)
The only thing that could have derailed a classic comeback by Chicago, was Matthew Stafford’s performance in the two-minute offense late in this game. D’Andrew Swift saw the game winning catch with six seconds left slip in and out of his grasp on third and ten. The ensuing fourth down attempt fell harmlessly incomplete to seal a victory by the Bears. The 27-23 win seemed as improbable given the rough start by Mitch Trubisky, who a week ago won the starter’s job over chal … (read more…)
