Rich Campbell: The Bears look more like also-rans than contenders after an inexcusable performance

  Rich Campbell: The Bears look more like also-rans than contenders after an inexcusable performance CHICAGO - The head coach and quarterback trudged to the lectern Sunday night, one after the other, because it was their obligation and because this monstrosity needed some explaining. And as Matt Nagy and Mitch Trubisky tried to account for the Bears' latest offensive meltdown following their 36-25 loss to the Saints, answers were as hard to come by as precious yards. "We're just searching," "We're just searching," Trubisky said. "We don't have any rhythm. We're not the offense we were last year.

The Bears' abrupt exit from last season’s playoffs was traumatic, but there was little reason for Chicago to be glum about its long-term prospects.

In its first season under head coach Matt Nagy, Chicago improved from 5-11 to 12-4 and secured the team’s first playoff berth in eight seasons. Nagy’s reputation as an offensive guru reflected in the quick progression of quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who emerged from an unexceptional rookie year under John Fox to become a promising starter. With a suffocating defense that thrived on rushing the passer, the Bears seemed primed for regular contention for years.

The Chicago Bears had possible the WORST first round in NFL Draft history. They traded picks, stock options and half of the city to move up ONE spot in the

Mitch Trubisky will become the first quarterback drafted by the Bears in the first round to start as a rookie since Rex Grossman at the end of the 2003 season. Trubisky isn't going to make the Bears ' corps of wide receivers look like stars, but if he brings the kind of spark he had in the preseason, he'll

Yet here we are, halfway through 2019, and the Bears have already exceeded their loss total from a year ago. Chicago is almost at the point where it can wave the white flag.  Most blame the quarterback.

Several of Trubisky’s weaknesses apparently were obscured by Nagy’s play-calling prowess last season, and they have been exposed by opponents in 2019. Sunday’s loss in Philadelphia was Trubisky's worst outing yet, and that includes the loss to Green Bay at home in the league’s season opener -- a game in which the Bears' offense appeared as though it was stuck in mud.

By just about every metric, Trubisky has fallen off from his Pro Bowl season of 2018. Against the Eagles, he was a pathetic 10-for-21 for 125 yards and zero touchdowns. Those are the type of numbers a rookie puts up in his first few outings as he’s testing the waters of the NFL, or perhaps a backup does in emergency duty. Philadelphia played a lot of man coverage, more than usual, essentially daring Trubisky to beat it, and he simply couldn’t. In his six full-game appearances this season, he has gone without a touchdown pass four times, and has posted a yards-per-attempt rate below the league average (7.4) five times.

Brad Biggs: Where do Bears turn if Trubisky can't turn it around?

  Brad Biggs: Where do Bears turn if Trubisky can't turn it around? CHICAGO - While the Bears have too much invested in Mitch Trubisky to give up on him six games into his third season, they have to start asking hard questions at Halas Hall - even if that doesn't lead to immediate answers. What do they do if their franchise quarterback can't even operate at a consistent level as a game manager? That's where things are crumbling for the Bears because for Trubisky to be a game manager, they need certain aspects of the team to play a vital role. It's difficult - bordering on impossible - for him to be a game manager when they can't run the ball.

I give you guys my full thoughts on Mitch Trubisky and why I'm buying him as the real deal.

The Bears moved up to the No. 2 pick from the No. 3 spot during Thursday night's first round of the NFL draft and selected North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky . Ten years from now , every Bears fan will still be talking about Thursday night and that jaw-dropping moment this football-crazed city will never forget.

At 3-5, Chicago is last in the NFC North and still has road games remaining against the Rams, Packers and Vikings, not to mention a home game against the Chiefs in late December, well after Pat Mahomes should return to full health. The defense is still strong, but it has an increased burden because the offense can’t put together sustained drives to keep it off the field.

This is why the Bears should have turned to Chase Daniel against the Eagles, and why they should use him for the remainder of this season -- or at least until Chicago is eliminated from contention.

It’s true the franchise has invested a lot in Trubisky -- money, time, and draft capital beyond the second overall pick they used on him in 2017. The Bears traded their own first-round pick -- the No. 3 overall pick -- two third-round picks and a fourth-rounder to move up one spot to get him.

Rivers, Chargers beat Bears 17-16 after Pineiro misses FG

  Rivers, Chargers beat Bears 17-16 after Pineiro misses FG Chicago kicker Eddy Pineiro missed a 41-yard field goal as time expired and the Los Angeles Chargers hung on to beat Chicago 17-16 on Sunday. BOX SCORE: CHARGERS 17, BEARS 16The Bears (3-4) took over at their 35 with 1:33 remaining and had a chance to win it after driving all the way to the 21. Chicago had quarterback Mitchell Trubisky take a knee with about 40 seconds left rather than try to get closer to the goal line. And Pineiro, who hit an upright on a miss earlier, hooked the potential winner wide left as time expired.

CHICAGO — Mitchell Trubisky started fast, slowed down and picked it up down the stretch. Despite another inconsistent performance by their prized quarterback Bears are at the mercy of Mitch Trubisky ’s ‘happy feet’.

Marathe called the Bears . “To try to solidify this now ,” Marathe said to Pace, “we’re gonna need a little bit more to finish. It wouldn’t have to be much. From the Bears ’ side of things, they believed the Niners would have taken Thomas, and so clearly believed their competition for Trubisky was other

It’s not a surprise that Trubisky’s development has come in fits and starts in the pros, as he was only a starter in college for one year at North Carolina before declaring for the draft. I’m not suggesting Chicago abandon him, but a benching would be smart for Trubisky and for the team while the Bears still have a chance to salvage their season. At the least, a break would allow Trubisky to escape the media pressure.

There’s a reason the Bears have invested in Daniel, notorious for being one of the most expensive backup quarterbacks in the league despite rarely playing. He has made about $30 million despite only starting five games in his 10 years in the NFL. That’s pretty good work if you can get it, but it’s time somebody makes him demonstrate his value.

Daniel probably won’t take the starting job for a sustained period. He has demonstrated he can be accurate (69.2 % career completion percentage), and if he can string drives together and game manage well, the Bears could steal wins on the strength of their defense alone.

If Daniel falters and Chicago falls out of contention, by all means bring Trubisky back and let's see if he can progress.  Asked repeatedly whether he considered benching him at halftime in Philly, Nagy said he didn’t. The inflexibility of the head coach and general manager Ryan Pace is understandable to a degree, as taking any quarterback high is always betting big and staking your reputation on one player. Still, they must swallow their pride and realize their job security is most likely fine through this season.

Mitchell Trubisky wants Bears' TVs turned off due to criticism; social media takes aim at easy target

  Mitchell Trubisky wants Bears' TVs turned off due to criticism; social media takes aim at easy target Trubisky, who is tired of "too many people talking on TV about us and what they think about us," is getting ripped on social media.But because Trubisky is an easy target, his tunnel vision approach — "because you've got too many people talking on TV about us and what they think about us" — largely is being received as weak.

The Bears apparently realized too late, and there was Trubisky handing off nine straight times on three straight series to start Thursday's practice game. Not the Bears jamokes. They decide to expose Trubisky to injury by trying to score in a joke of a game when they didn't care to even fake it earlier.

Giving Trubisky a breather isn’t admitting defeat. Rather, it’s giving the team an option that makes sense for the short term. There are examples of quarterbacks drafted high who had rocky starts, got benched, and found their way later on. (Remember Alex Smith?) Trubisky has shown enough to believe he’s not a lost cause. The Bears should have enough faith to know he could survive a benching.

Pulling Mitch Trubisky ‘had zero to do with his play’ and was solely because of his hip injury, Matt Nagy says .
Bears coach Matt Nagy addressed quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s hip injury during his news conference Monday at Halas Hall, affirming that the decision to go with backup Chase Daniel for the final series of Sunday night’s 17-7 loss to the Rams “had zero to do with (Trubisky’s) play” and that Trubisky remains the starter if healthy. Nagy said Trubisky suffered a right hip pointer when cornerback Troy Hill sacked him on the Bears’ final play from scrimmage in the first half. Nagy said defensive tackle Michael Brockers’ knee hit Trubisky in the hip/lower back.
