Bears vs Rams: Five Questions with Ramblin Fan
Mandatory Credit: Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports
2. Todd Gurley has taken over the league by storm. What can the Bears expect from him on Sunday? Is there any way to stop him?
Todd Gurley was kept “in-check” last week against the Minnesota Vikings and he still had over 100 all-purpose yards and a touchdown. The Chicago Bears will have their hands full with the young runner. Gurley is the definition of a ground and pound runner. He will hit you in the mouth until you can’t take it anymore and then busts a big run. There is no way to stop him. He will get his yards. You just have to hang on for dear life and do your best to slow him down.
3. Is Nick Foles the answer at quarterback for Rams long term? Is he the missing piece?
Nick Foles was never expected to light the world on fire when the Rams traded oft-injured former first overall selection Sam Bradford for him in the off season. However, he was expected to be a step in the right direction and at the very least serviceable at the quarterback spot. Unfortunately, he has not been. Fole’s suffers from a young offensive line and a shaky wide receiver corps. The addition of Wes Welker is a nice band-aid, but in no way the ultimate fix. It may be unfair to Foles, but he was brought in to win, and he has struggled to do that. The pieces around aren’t great, but he may be finding himself a new home sooner rather than later should he not be able to produce in the remainder of 2015.
