A Fan’s Non-expert Take on The Bears Preseason Loss to the Browns

This game was a little more pleasant to watch than the game in Seattle. I saw a lot of things that I liked.

3rd string QB, David Fales, seemed to move around well and did OK once he settled in.

Bears coach Marc Trestman had made the decision that he would start and play the entirety of the last preseason game, now that Palmer has been cut and Jimmy Clausen is the official number 2 QB.

What I have seen so far (it’s halftime,) is Josh Bellamy making a strong case for himself and the still-up-for-grabs 3rd WR position.

Some players may not think third wideout is something to aspire for. However, playing behind future Hall of Famer, Brandon Marshall, and last years breakout star, Alshon Jeffrey, can have it’s benefits.

They are the best wide-receiver duo in the NFL. Any rookie receiver would jump at the chance to be in that club. To be mentored by the best, and learn and grow into the position.

I guess it may not be appealing to the inflated ego types.

Also, seeing a good return and some catches by Santonio Holmes, will make the final decision a little more interesting.

Who would have ever thought that the Bears 3 or 4 WR could possibly compete to be starters on any other team, except maybe Atlanta?

Looking at Cleveland I see now why they call this dude Johnny Football.

I don’t see how this kid doesn’t end up starting. I have a suspicion the Browns didn’t picture him as a clipboard holder when they drafted him.

QB “competition” is what they say in cases like this when they don’t want to appear fickle.

Like the girl that tolerates you until someone better comes along. Then says she has to work on herself, or some other crap.

As a Bears fan living in Ohio, I know a few Browns fans. Bless them for their undying servitude. They have earned a break, I guess. I feel free to say that considering they are in the AFC. I wish them all the best.

If the Bears have to face-off against the Browns in the Super Bowl, I guess I’ll have to eat my words. Paper would be wimpy, I’ll thumb drive my words and swallow it.

I will even make a nice video of that for all my readers to watch.

*update after game ends, not much more pleasant than Seattle*

Good bye preseason, thanks for telling me absolutely nothing and leaving me with almost no idea of how good we are.

Or maybe you did, I just don’t want to believe it.
