Every team in the league can execute the slant pattern except the Chicago Bears...

Not a lot to be excited about.  OL looks terrible.  D is getting shredded.  Special teams suck.

Have the Bears gotten a single first down yet?

Fields throws a nice pass that gives the receivers a shot but they are not making the plays.

Fields fumbles.  That was a knock on him in college.

I just saw a couple of days ago Bears signed Teez Tabor who was a potential first round corner a couple of years ago.  He ran a slow 40 and lasted to the second round.
I hear he had attitude problems and since he is too slow for corner he was released.

Bears have him at safety.  It will be interesting to see if he makes the team since he would be their most athletic safety.

Foles looks terrible.  After Fields leaves right back to three and out.

You would think Foles would be tearing it up against inferior competition.

Who stood out? LBs Caleb Johnson, Ogletree, Jones & Gipson.
DBs Shelley, Tabor.

RB Herbert  WR Adams
the Center from Harvard, Redmond looked serviceable. Didn't see Gage Cervenka.



Didn't like what I saw at WR, lots of camp fodder. I take it Dazz Newsome ls hurt?
RB is deep. Why we signed Williams is a mystery.

FWIW here's my two cents (if anything can be gleaned from a preseason game):

1. The defensive front is going to be fine. The back end, however, looks a little weak. DBs etc seem to be taking a few more chances- which will lead to more ints and giving up more big plays. If the pass rush is not consistent, its going to be a long year on defense....

2. Special teams coverage sucks. Guys playing tentative, waiting for the runner to come to them instead of attacking them. Some of this is lack of talent (a lot of these guys are playing out their NFL dreams in its final days) but something does not seem right there. And returning. Sheesh. The returners were (mostly) hot garbage. I get that its preseason but they kept **** around and giving the O bad field position.

3. And now the elephant in the room. Every snap Dalton takes with the ones is an utter WASTE. You know what you are going to get with him (pocket passer, decent decision making). Fields is so much more dynamic its a night and day difference. He also seems to get better the more he plays. He was let down on the 1st drive by the (very avoidable) false starts. The almost int to the TE was where the TE stumbled. He has to learn to protect the ball while scrambling- but at least that can be taught. In a better world than this one, Dalton would be back up and Fields starter....

4. As far as coaching goes, it would have been nice to see Fields get one more drive (his last one was an abortion set up by that knucklehead returner not catching the ball before running). You could almost feel the air let out when Foles was trotted out. If nothing else it was a not so friendly reminder of where the Bears have been at QB more than anything....

Onward to take on Buffalo and 1 for 2 for 10 yards Trubisky ! :D
