I saw what many Bears fans saw while watching this game; the team seemed way too relaxed. I like that the team wasn’t freaking out once they got behind, but I am bothered that not many of the players had any sense of urgency. I didn’t see the creativity on offense or defense we saw last week. There was very little fire and it showed.
According to reports, there was more fire in the locker room after the game then there was on the field.
I am frustrated, but at the same time I am not one of those fans who are calling for a house cleaning either. Has Head Coach Marc Trestman made some clock management mistakes as well as created and called questionable game plans in his tenure as HC? Absolutely. Has Trestman and his staff created some game plans and called some games that have been masterful, creative and surprisingly effective? Absolutely.
I also don’t believe Trestman has lost the locker room like some media outlets have reported; that’s just ridiculous and borderline stupid.
