Keys To Victory: Are Chicago Bears Ready to Win At Home?
3. Play With Consistency and be Aggressive
Throughout the first half in week one, the Bears displayed consistency in all three phases (offense, defense, and special teams). However, in the second half, the Bears decided to pump the breaks and think that a 20-0 lead against Aaron Rodgers would last for the final 30 minutes of the game.
The first thing that the Bears must do is be consistent on all three levels. This also feeds into being aggressive at all times in the game. Last week, the offense clearly faltered in the second half, while the defense did show some flashes of trying to slow the Packers offense down.
One of the best ways to be both aggressive and consistent is by playing good situational football. This means the team must make the right play calls depending on the situation the team is in. Recall that last week, the Bears were in a third-and-short situation where they should have run the ball but opted to call a pass play.
For the offense to be aggressive all throughout the game, the goal is to get the ball to playmakers on a consistent basis. This means that Jordan Howard, Tarik Cohen, Trey Burton, and Allen Robinson should see the ball more.
If the offense can be aggressive until the final whistle, then the Bears should have no problem closing out the game.
