Out of curiosity, how many points per game would Andy Reid have with this offense?

It’s amazing how much better Mitch’s throws are when he actually sets his feet and steps into the throw.

I also feel like they should just go hurry up all the time instead of giving him time to think.

Anyone see Cohen hush the crowd after his TD? Combining that with Eddie Jackson’s comments on the score about how they aren’t playing for the fans anymore, I’m guessing the Bears pretty much hate their fans haha

This offseason, Pace better sign as many players named Nick as possible. Foles, Chubb, Hakeem, allum.

Drives me nuts that Nagy is going to run between the tackles twice and then Mitch is going to get sacked on 3rd down probably

They gain seconds of time just by virtue of the fact that it is reviewed

Driskel wasn't as bad as I thought he'd be. If the Bears wanted to draft a QB in the second and bring in a vet to compete with Trubisky (and carry 3 QBs) I'd actually consider throwing a couple mil at him.

Nagy, let Mitch throw down the field. Scrap everything short that isnt a check down.

I think that's a pretty good measuring stick on where we are.

They're good enough to beat one of the NFC's worst teams, at home, starting their backup QB. Trubisky is good enough to have moderate success against a bad defense. The defense can still hold down bad offenses, with the occasional blip.

I think the most important thing was this was a fairly simple offense that Mitch was actually capable of running, unlike what Nagy's prior dumbed down offenses were.

It's weird hoping the Broncos tank more than the Bears but since Nagy and Pace will be back, maybe Fangio is a one and done.

Kwiatkowski should be the starter regardless of injury.

Moderate success is basically having 10 competent minutes of offense surrounded by 50 minutes of garbage

This is probably only the second time (1st was Washington) they scored 20 points before garbage time all season.

Actually, this reminded me a bit of the redskins game where the offense had a 1 quarter spurt of competence and almost nothing outside of that
