All I’m gonna say, after spending my childhood years in NW Indiana, I’ve had to hear those bears fans chirp. Beating them in the Super Bowl was the single greatest experience I’ve had as a fan.  

I’m more worried that it’s foles than trubinsky but if there is anyone that knows foles it’s reich 

Mitch Trubisky got Chicago to 2-0, and was pulled in favor of Nick Foles after a bad ½ of football that saw the Bears down by 13 with 3 punts, a missed field goal & an interception.  Foles was abl

Mitch Trubisky got Chicago to 2-0, and was pulled in favor of Nick Foles after a bad ½ of football that saw the Bears down by 13 with 3 punts, a missed field goal & an interception.  Foles was able to rally the Bears to victory with 20 fourth quarter points but I don’t see how Matt Nagy can replace Trubisky as the starter without fracturing the locker room – we may be catching them at the perfect time!

This will be the first real test for the Colts in this young season. Bears are 3-0 and while they have a QB controversy brewing, they still have looked good in other ways.

 

If the Colts come out and make a statement on the road, this will go a long way towards telling us where this team is heading.

Colts 23   DAH Bears 17

Rivers 230 yards 1 TD 1 int 

Foles 220 yards  2 int 

 

It was very stupid and puzzling for the bears to punch Foles in as the starter so early this season after Mitch had already gone 2-0. If Mitchell was the starter I would seriously considering a big chance for us to lose. Foles had a lot of bad passes against one of the worst defenses in football and had the luxury of the Falcons not game planning against him all week. We'll have an entire week of planning against a QB Frank Reich is very familiar with. It'll be hard for our offense to get rolling against their defense, but I think we'll be able to shut out Foles

I think you all are overlooking the bears. I can see us losing this game very easily.

Not with Foles starting

No Bears QB has passed over 4k yards

Phil should have some opportunities to go deep in this contest.  You know Pagano likes to leave his corners on an island one on one while sending the blitz.   Should be another good Mo Cox game.  We always got killed by Tight Ends under Pagano and that Baltimore scheme.

I'm leery about this game due to the offense.  They still aren't really clicking IMHO.  3-10 on 3rd downs today vs. a shoddy defense.  The Bears are better there.  I think the offense has been too predictable at times.  The defense will be fine.  But I could see this a struggle for both offenses and penalties and turnovers will likely decide it.  

 

Right now I'm thinking Bears 16-13.  Hope I'm wrong.

If anyone watched that Bears Falcons game, Foles made a couple fantastic throws but also made several plays that really should have been a turnover if it weren't for the Falcons being the Falcons. I hope we see some of those throws cuz Carrie and Rhodes will be waiting.

Whether we win or lose next week isn’t as much of a big deal, cuz I still have that.

Bears seem like a very brittle 3-0 team, played like crap against the Lions then Trubisky came alive for 2 quarters for a comeback win. Barely limped past the lowly Giants then went down against the Falcons, benched quarterback, and now the Foles vs Trubisky thing has really blown up. They did come back and win but I don't see the success lasting starting next week.

This is going to be a tough game for the Colts playing away, they need to up their game a bit on the defense and get after Foles or Trubisky.....Also need to utitlize Taylor more....Play calling could use some improvement....Granted the Colts played an injury plagued Jets and vying for the Trevor Lawrence sweepstake. can't take dah Bears lightly.....Close one, but Colts prevail 25-23....

That and despite the stats our defense is suspect. Especially the pass defense. 

And what are the Bears QBs?  Neither one of them has even done well enough to take a full handle on the offense without the coaches wondering if a change should be made.  Cousins and Darnold are better then the guys the Bears have.

If the defense plays well, 28-10 Colts. We control the T.O.P and force them to be one dimensional on offense. If the D struggles, 31-24 Colts. Bears have a good defense, but I see our line holding up against their pass rush. Philip will have enough time to make that one throw to win the game.

I think the issue is most people when they think of Foles think of that amazing post season run with the eagles. In reality he’s very inconsistent. The problem is however, he can still play like that for a stretch at a time.

I hope he gets late start lol

Tribusky is done and Nagu has seen enough. Pull him at the right time. They are  3 and 0 and sends a message to the team

    • No need to lock.  I didn't mean that. I didn't know that there were people that didn't know this story.   Baltimore fans were heart broken but, these days, everything has worked out for the best.   Thankfully   Although there is still disagreement on who has rights to the franchise history before the move.  But, even that is fading   Time heals
    • When Frank has had a good quarterback, he wins and makes the playoffs.   The two years he didn’t make the playoffs were the two Luck years where things went to heck at the last minute.   And one of those two years we looked like a playoff team until JB got hurt.  From there, things went downhill.   This year, we never lost two games in a row.  When we lost a game, we won the next week.  A very good sign of a well coached team.   We had one bad loss, week one in a season where Covid wiped out the entire off-season and all pre-season games.   Ballard speaks glowingly of Frank.   He knows how hard it is to find a good coach.   I’m not sure why you think we’re not a well coach team, but for some strange reason you do. 
    • So you don’t really agree with most?
    • Whether I've heard of them or not is irrelevant. What's relevant is that our coaches can lead our team to a SB win. You can bash me because of my lack of knowledge all you want. The real question is, do you trust Ballard to hire coaches over 31 other teams? Do you trust Frank Reich's word that these guys are good? You are being positive and trustworthy just for the sake of it too. I don't trust anyone for us until they prove they can do their job at the highest level, in the NFL and on the Indianapolis Colts.
    • Joe Tiller coached future HOFer Drew Brees at Purdue.  He's the father of "basketball on grass."  One of the most brilliant offensive coaches of his generation with an outstanding coaching tree.    I say this with no disrespect, but the fact that you haven't heard of someone is pretty meaningless.    Your responses regarding the listing of several coaching legends, together with your reactions toward the several up-and-coming NFL coaches that have been named in this thread, has established you're pretty much only familiar with a few household names that virtually every casual NFL fan is familiar with.   If that was the criterion by which all coaching decisions and hires were made, no coach would ever move up the ranks and have the chance to become successful.    Sirianni was pretty much a nobody before the Colts hired him.  He's still only 39 years old.  Now he's the HC of the Eagles.  Eberflus had never coordinated a defense before he got to Indy.  I'm guessing you had no idea who Gannon was until he was hired away.    In sum, there's no reason to be overly negative about things just for the sake of being overly negative.  It may be more rewarding to expand your horizons and learn more about the game and how many great coaches permeate every level of it.  Some coaches that you perceive as "bad" because of their tenure with a certain team go on to do great things in a different environment.  Same can be said for coaches that you've never heard of (which is seemingly a pretty big list).  That's the nature of the business.
