The Chicago Bears have three wins in their last five games, and they’ve won two in a row. That’s quite surprising, considering the Bears haven’t been favored to win any of them.
With rookie Mitchell Trubisky under center the team has started to show signs of life, but more importantly, they are starting to find their identity as a team. The 2017 Chicago Bears are physical, both on offense and on defense. The front seven has been getting after opposing offenses, and the secondary has been giving receivers something to think about. The takeaways have finally started to come as well.
Offensively, the Bears have shown a commitment to ground and pound, even if they seem a bit predictable at times. Their predictability is making it tough on the players, but it’s not completely stopping them from moving the ball methodically down the field.
Their offense has to evolve, both for the team to win, and for the quarterback to develop.
