Chicago Bears: It is time to start calling this team the “Bad News Bears”
By Nathan Burns
The Chicago Bears offense might as well have stayed home
The Chicago Bears took on the Tennesee Titans and lost 24-17. Although it might have seemed like it was a close game, it was the complete opposite. In my opinion, the Bears lost 24-3. 14 out of the Bears 17 points came in the final 6 minutes of the game. In other words, the Bears scored two garbage-time touchdowns.
It was one of the worst offensive performances, I’ve ever seen. The Bears one highlight was the fake punt run by Barkevious Mingo. Besides that, it was tough to watch. Every time the Bears would get something going, they would shoot themselves in the foot.
As I continue to say, the Bears are running David Montgomery right into the ground. Montgomery finished the game with 14 carries for 30 yards. Not only that, but he also suffered a concussion towards the end of the game.
Week after week, it’s the same problems. The Bears don’t have any protection, they continue to rack up penalties and fail to convert on opportunities.
The Bears only converted on third down, two out of their 15 drives. That comes out to about 13 percent. Matt Nagy proved once again that he can’t call plays.
