4. Vic Fangio takes on his former team in week 2
Not many people, myself included, felt that Vic Fangio would get a head coaching job. His prime opportunities seemed to have passed him by and head coaching vacancies were filling up quickly. But all it takes is one team and John Elway and the Denver Broncos decided to make Fangio’s lifelong dream come true.
Most Bears fans wish Fangio nothing but success in Denver, but they won’t be hoping he has any success in his home opener against his former Bears’ squad.
The Bears defense is going to be fired up that game to put on a show and remind Vic what he left behind, but if anyone knows every nuance and weakness in Mitch Trubisky’s game and how to exploit it, it’s going to be Fangio.
With Joe Flacco and a lackluster offense, the Bears should be able to handle this game on the road, but Bryce Callahan and Fangio will want to make a statement about Denver’s stout D.
The biggest concern out of this game is that Fangio has some mastermind game plan that completely shuts down Trubisky that other teams can mimic throughout the season. Fangio did that do Jared Goff and the Rams and Bill Belichick used that game plan to help completely neutralize the Rams offense in the Super Bowl.
