Sport Bears Wideout Has Blunt Admission On Team’s Offense
From COVID to Ida: Louisiana's marginalized 'see no way out'
Darkness set in for Natasha Blunt well before Hurricane Ida knocked out power across Louisiana. Months into the pandemic, she faced eviction from her New Orleans apartment. She lost her job at a banquet hall. She suffered two strokes. And she struggled to help her 5-year-old grandson keep up with schoolwork at home.Like nearly a fifth of the state’s population — disproportionately represented by Black residents and women — Blunt, 51, lives below the poverty line, and the economic fallout of the pandemic sent her to the brink.
On Sunday night, the Chicago Bears were handed their first loss of the season – in the first game of the season – by the Los Angeles Rams.
Veteran quarterback Andy Dalton struggled to keep the Bears offense afloat against a stout Rams defense. The longtime Cincinnati Bengals quarterback notably struggled to throw deep.
The longest pass Dalton completed during the game on Sunday night went for just 19 yards. Marquise Goodwin, the wide receiver who caught that pass, had a brutally honest comment about the team’s lack of a deep passing attack.
Chiefs S Tyrann Mathieu still a COVID-19 absence, status for Browns game unknown
Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo suggested Thursday he has a "plan A" and "plan B" depending on Mathieu's status by Sunday afternoon.Per Myles Simmons of Pro Football Talk, Mathieu was once again not spotted at practice Friday. This implies the 29-year-old is, at best, questionable for Sunday's home matchup against what is perceived to be a fellow playoff contender.
“It’s challenging,” he said on Tuesday afternoon. “But I mean, you just got to work with what you get. I don’t control the plays that are called. I don’t control anything but just going out and doing my job.”

Bears fans were clamoring for head coach Matt Nagy to put rookie quarterback Justin Fields into the game.
“Is there anybody besides Matt Nagy who thinks the Bears should be playing Andy Dalton over Justin Fields? Does Andy Dalton even think he should be playing over Justin Fields?”.
Fields actually received a few snaps during Sunday’s game. He completed both of his passes for 10 yards and scored a three-yard rushing touchdown on his only carry of the game.
Will Fields take over sometime soon?
