"The last time the Bears were victorious was the same week the Cubs last won a game, and if that feels like a long time ago, it's because it was," Barry Rozner writes for the Daily Herald.
I hope we can all agree that even if this #Bears lead holds up, John Fox, Ryan Pace, Ted Phillips and George McCaskey should still all be fired.— Beachwood Reporter (@BeachwoodReport) December 10, 2017
"Forget the Bears' lost season for just a moment and keep in mind that all that matters is that whether rookie Mitchell Trubisky is good at quarterback," Dan Bernstein of The Score writes.
"If he is, everything is fine for general manager Ryan Pace and whomever the new coach may be after this slog is over."
NO. This narrative is aggravating. For Trubisky to have been worth the draft picks Pace gave up to get him, he has to be way better than, say, Deshaun Watson and the rest of the 2017 quarterback cohort.
"[Kendall] Wright revealed the [receiving] corps calls itself 7-Eleven because 'we're always open,'" David Haugh writes for the Tribune.
But they're not! More like a store that's only open one day a year! C'mon!
To Bears - and Bengals - Twitter.
Is this good or bad? What is the league average? Stats are frequently meaningless unless they are compared to something.
I'm no Bears defender, but maybe this is "progress," "development" or "Bengals."
The fact that the Bears are showing this game plan now in Week 13 is an even bigger indictment of this coaching staff.— David Kaplan (@thekapman) December 10, 2017
But I thought they had to establish the run? #CompetingConvenientNarratives
Fun watching the Bears when they throw the ball down the field and they actually look like an NFL team.— David Kaplan (@thekapman) December 10, 2017
Kendall Wright has quietly had a good season.— Adam Hoge (@AdamHoge) December 10, 2017
Same for the #Bears receiving corps.— Beachwood Reporter (@BeachwoodReport) December 10, 2017
The #Bengals have completely quit on Marvin Lewis. Fire him already and let's just move on. It's only about 6 seasons too late but just gut him now and start looking ahead at 2018.— Damon Martin (@DamonMartin) December 10, 2017
#Bengals I'm switching over to the Browns game. They at least are still playing for their pride— Mike Cox (@CoxxMikee) December 10, 2017
