Final Thoughts on Week 1: Chicago Bears @ Los Angeles Rams

Well, outside of being immensely disappointed on a handful of plays, I was happy-ish by how some of the defenders played. Alec Ogletree played well, Roquan Smith was alright, Akiem Hicks played with high energy the entire game, but outside of that, it was a really poor game to watch defensively.

Offensively, the play-calling was one-dimensional, decisions caused head-scratching, and the only real highlights were from either David Montgomery or the five plays Justin Fields was in.

Outside of those few things, it was a really disappointing game that the Chicago Bears could have won, had they not given up two major mistakes that resulted in 14 points.

This could be a broken record, and I’m not sorry about it. Start Justin Fields if you want more dimensions to a one-and-a-half-dimensional offense.

With all that said, the Chicago Bears have their home opener next week against the 1-0 Cincinnati Bengals, and I’ll speak for all Chicago Bears fans by saying that I hope I’m far less disappointed after that one.
