Back to December
Incredibly, you'd have to go back to October to find the Bears' last victory, so we're tapping into Taylor's ballad about missing the way things used to be. Remember when the Bears were good? Those moments were fleeting, but maybe that's what made them special. Brian Urlacher. Devin Hester. Matt Forte. This is me swallowin' my pride standin' in front of you sayin' I'm sorry if myself and other Bears fans didn't appreciate those teams enough. Right now, I'm wishin' I'd realized what I had when you were mine.
We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
For Matt Nagy, who I'm sure took extra pleasure in being the offensive coordinator for the Chiefs as they hung 41 on his former team. Really, the score could have been a lot worse. Patrick Mahomes sat for most of the second half, and the Chiefs clearly took their foot off the gas anyway in an act of merciful benevolence from Andy Reid. Nagy is enjoying life right now, but with the way his tenure as the Bears' head coach went downhill, plus the fact that anybody could score 30+ points per game with Patrick Mahomes running Andy Reid's play designs, I don't think a return to the head coaching ranks is in the cards.
In honor of Patrick Mahomes' jersey number, let's dedicate this one to him and all the people that bemoan the Bears passing on him in the 2017 draft. Taylor sings in this one, I've found time can heal most anything, but she hasn't had to live with six years of people razzing the Bears for passing on Mahomes. First of all, Mahomes was never an option for the Bears. The choice was always between Mitch Trubisky and Deshaun Watson. Trubisky obviously didn't pan out, but I'll still take him over someone with the off-the-field problems that Watson has. As for Mahomes, he's the most talented quarterback to ever play, but if the Bears drafted him, there's a good chance he'd be an insurance salesman by now.
