CHICAGO – The word around the NFL in recent months has been that the Bears are one of the league's most improved teams.
The biggest reason folks are focusing on them is a growing belief the team has found its franchise quarterback, based on his 12 game audition in 2017 and the possibility that Mitch Trubisky’s ceiling is extremely high and gaining altitude as talent and weapons are added around him.
Here are reactions to notable moments during Sunday's Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears game, compiled by Nolan Bianchi of The Detroit News.
After one half:
The offensive line gives Stafford room to sling it as Da Bears get Da-minated through the air by the Lions' two-minute offense.
Pro Football Weekly contributors Jon Styf and Kyle Nabors debate which head coaches deserve to be on the hot seat due to their poor starts.
Nabors: We've officially reached the point of the season where headlines start popping up regarding certain head coaches' job security.
Over the past six months, it has become clear to anyone paying close attention that the Bears are now general manager Ryan Pace’s team, while head coach John Fox just works there. In the past two-and-a-half years, we can count on one hand the number of times Pace has spoken publicly without Fox by his side, and until January it was always Fox who dominated those occasions, at times feeling the need to add to Pace’s comments and even finish answers for him.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. — I wouldn’t say John Fox was contrite when meeting the media Monday following Sunday’s embarrassing 36-10 loss to the Bucs, but he wasn’t his usual dismissive, combative self either.
