Maybe I will get a reality check next week or especially against the Rams but for the first time I’m not immediately dismissing the notion that we can win a title
Honestly, this team has all the elements. It seems like nobody had anything good to say about Trubisky this week, but the Bears offense is quietly up there with the elite offenses in the league. They are right at 30 ppg, which is elite. We already know about the defense. They may not be putting up historically elite numbers, but they are clearly as good as any defense in the league. They sack the QB, force turnovers, and stop the run.
Today showed why they are a dangerous team. If they can execute early on offense, while getting a couple stops on D. They can get up early and allow the defense to pin their ears back. The NFL is a passing league, but the key is forcing teams to have to pass. It's how you get a pass rush, and that is how you get turnovers.
