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

What if Foles is awful next week though?

Then its disaster city

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

Mah...Tribusky is who he is.  He is terrible.  I think the players know what they have in Tribusky and willing to move forward with Foles

I don’t know about that, Trubisky & Foles competed for the starting gig and Trubisky won. He led the Bears to a 2-0 start before being pulled after a bad start against the Falcons – had Atlanta not choked like they usually do, this isn’t even a discussion right now. After putting up 10 points in the 3rd Quarter, the Falcons offense produced 4 punts, a missed field goal & an interception.

Falcons are king of choking lately

It's Fole's team from now on. He is capable of beating anyone but he is a backup for a reason. Too close to call for me. Loved our defense against the hapless Jets.

 

He can play like a future hall of famer one day and look like a practice squad level QB the next game.  Hopefully since he played well yesterday than he will revert back to looking like a practice squad QB.  

 

Big key to this game that hasn't been mentioned is pass protection.  Bears have a good pass rush and River's isn't going to be able to run away from it.  

 

We might have to assign a TE to at least get a chip in on Mack on every passing down.

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

Me too!  I live 50 miles SW of Chicago.  I had a bunch of Bears fan friends over for that game.  Had Colts jerseys hanging all over the house, including the bathrooms so they had to see them while "relieving themselves".  Good times!!!!

This is a tough one to call.  We will be facing a very good defense on the road.  Foles will get the 1st team reps this week, so he may be better than yesterday.   

Since I have to predict, I'll go with Colts 19 Bears 13.

The Bears defense looked pretty good yesterday from what I watched early on. I'm thinking this is going to come close.

They gave up 26 points in that game.  I think we will do fine against them

Personally I think we are going to get after Foles.  I don't respect their running game without Cohen.

I don't think they are going to do much on the ground and it's going to lead to Foles having to pass

more than they want to and we know he's a statue in the pocket.

 

I think we win this game somewhere in the neighborhood of 21-12 or 28-14

Well, Chicago's D isn't tracking nearly as good as they were last year. 

They lost some solid DBs, so their run D is likely better than pass D.

Their OL is ranked 20s. Their TEs are good, WRs and RBs mediocre. 

 

 

So since their run D is likely their strength, I'm guessing we'll run more than pass like we did against a good run D last week lol. 

 

On D, I have no idea. IMO we should go after Foles, and play a little more man. Guessing we'll likely do the opposite and play deep and soft zone.

I'll be mad if we don't get after this dude in the passing game.  Definitely don't need to return to all the soft zone looks.  As far as the run is concerned I think Gurley and Brian Hill did pretty good against Chicagos run D.

Don't they have like 18 TEs

Concerned about the Akiem Hicks matchup.

 

Usually players of his size (6'4'', 347 lbs) aren't good at rushing the passer, but in his case, is crucial to the Bears defense. Their entire defense is dominant when he plays well and struggles when he's out.

Hows he doing 

he's #2 on the DT, but not many targets. Not surprising given the Bears passing game. 

That will probably change though now with Foles taking over. 

I'd be shocked if he doesn't turn out to be pretty darn good.

ND has several exceptional TEs again this year. One is just a frosh, but he's already a bad bad man. 

Hoping Indy gets them an ND TE one of these days.

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.

i watched them play all 3 of their games they do not look like a 3-0 team they barely  beat the 0-3 giants , 0-3 falcons and 1-2 lions all games were really close they lions and falcons moved the ball well against the bears defense .   foles is super overrated had one good game in the superbowl and thats really it got beat out by minshew and tribusky .  They have terrible coaching and chuck pagano just blitzes every single play on defense just throw it to the running back .

    • Well, part of the issue is the rotational approach to begin with, IMO.  With playoff caliber coaches, QBs, and personnel; I'd think that once the saw the guy who was only good at one thing, they would audible into doing the other.     So if the light guy Lewis is playing 3T a lot, TEN is going to feed Henry until the 3T stops getting washed out.
    • When Peyton had his issues in 2015 with his foot, Kubiak benched him and went with Osweiler because Peyton was hurting the team at that point. This is a HOF QB we are talking about who had earned a LOT of rope. Once Peyton had minor surgery and was back and active and ready to go, that is when Kubiak put him back, and Peyton at least steadied the Broncos ship during the playoffs.    Unless it gets to a point where Rivers' play hurts the Colts like with Peyton where he threw 3 or 4 picks in 1 game within 2 quarters while the Broncos played the Chiefs, Rivers is our starter.
    • It's not even about his production. After he got back from his injury his production has actually been fine. I'm not one of those who wants ungodly numbers from him to think he's showing promise. But I do want to see him beat his man off the release on he outside. I do want him to win some contested balls and show body control and good hands. My problem with him right now is that ... he just... doesn't win his reps really. He needs his man to get stuck in traffic or for a defensive breakdown to happen in order to make stuff happen. Just an example - look at what Claypool is doing. Look at what Ceedee Lamb is doing...   I couldn't care less if he ends the year with 400 yards and 2TDs... It's not what this is about... it's about me wanting to see some flashes of what he could become with development. So yeah, sure... I absolutely agree with you that it's still early in his career and there is time for him to get better and develop, but we still can watch what he's doing now and where he's struggling and evaluate that. IMO he's struggling with pretty much every single aspect of playing X-receiver. Which is why Reich started using him a ton in the slot after his injury.      This is not a coincidence. The jump in production coicides perfectly with Reich moving him inside to the slot and scheming things for him.   
    • Rattle on about your interpretation about what's going on, rather than your knowledge of it.     Why are babbling about something irrelevant, like hindsight?   There was no looking back. There is no hindsight. The trade up for Lewis was criticized immediately when it happened.  My thought yesterday merely triggered a 2.5 year old memory.  It wasn't a new thought based on hindsight.   If you don't know that, you're not qualified to comment about the situation or about me.   Let it go, because you've revealed you ignorance on the matter.   And it was a one sentence comment at the end of a five sentence paragraph.  It was a side comment.  It wasn't a deal until you made it one.   Do us a favor.  Smarten up, or get out.     
    • I think strong side DE plays more snaps for us than weak side DE with more run stopping responsibilities like Sheard and Houston. I am not sure if that is a systematic conscious approach or something that happened by chance. In other words, they want a few jacks who do only 1 trade on a rotational basis instead of 1 jack that does several trades for the weak side DE position. However the hit percentage seems to be low so far with several dart opportunities at the draft board.   That approach only works if those jacks do jack but if they don't do jack, who the jack is won't matter.
