The Chicago Bears went 1-4 in September after some people in the media, including this writer, thought they would go winless.  How well can they do in October? Can Mitchell Trubisky make a difference?

CHICAGO, IL – SEPTEMBER 10: Deion Jones /

The Bears will start the month of October anew. They have a new face at the quarterback position, and that is big for the Bears. Hopefully, it will be the start of a new and productive era in Chicago. And while he might make mistakes and make it harder on us Bears fans Trubisky will provide us with something to look forward to.

Hopefully, it is positive.

I think that after four weeks of watching Mike Glennon play, we were ready to see someone else start at the quarterback position. The Glennon era needed to be over and it finally is.

The Bears have some opportunities to win a few games in October. The teams that they face are all beatable. The Bears just have to play solid defense and limit mistakes on offense, which will be difficult, and they can win. No game in October is impossible for them to win.

It may even be the Bears’ best month this season.

The Bears will enter the month with some injury issues as well as a key suspension. The linebacker position, which has been hampered by injuries, will be without Danny Trevathan. With Nick Kwiatkoski out and Jerrell Freeman gone for the year, the linebacking corps not having Trevathan is bad news. But he’s only gone for one game.

The defense has taken a hit at the safety position as strong safety Quintin Demps is out with a broken forearm. Adrian Amos has taken his place and while Amos isn’t a turnover machine, he is consistent. He grades out high and makes tackles.

The offense has gotten some of its talent back as Kyle Long is back and ready to go. The starting offensive line should gel and could become one of the best in the league. That’s if they can hold up of course.

So, without further delay, here is a quick look at each game the Bears play, who will win and why.
