Attempting to comfort Chicago Bears fans’ doubts about this roster build

The translation of running teams seems to have been lost with the wow-throwing quarterbacks nowadays in the NFL. The Super Bowl did not help as Patrick Mahomes made wow throw after wow throw (even one in which he was parallel with the ground).

How many times did you pull your hair out when Trubisky would roll out and fire the ball into the defender’s hands in the red zone? Later, to see that some players were open or that it was second down. Remember the Russell Wilson interception against the Patriots in the Super Bowl? Poor Marshawn Lynch.

Jordan Howard’s first three seasons with the Chicago Bears accounted for 23 rushing touchdowns. Montgomery has 14 in his first two seasons. Why not? Instead of putting the game on the line with your very talented quarterback (talking to Seattle), use the talented running backs to get four yards and win you the game.

I am also talking to you, Matt Nagy. Some might think that Ryan Tannehill’s success is because he’s an excellent quarterback. I mean, 33 passing touchdowns had to lead the team by a large margin, right? Depends on your definition of a large margin. Derrick Henry still managed 17 rushing touchdowns. To prove the point more, in 2019, Henry had another 16 rushing touchdowns.

I probably sound like a Tennessee Titans fan, but actually, I’m the opposite. My second team to the Chicago Bears is the Jacksonville Jaguars. Yeah, the Jaguars beat everybody they played that season minus one, losing to only the Titans three times in 1999. I better start to wrap this up as I am getting off track.

Next. First round replacements for Allen Robinson. dark

Hopefully, the collaboration (there is that word again) between Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy was that we know how to win and become contenders. This design might be dated, but it works in the NFL. Especially when facing 220-pound or less off-ball linebackers
