After that incredible game on Sunday I had to start off my show talking about the NFC North Champion Chicago Bears ending the Green Bay Packers season. It just seems fitting with the way the last several years have gone for us fans, and with how this season has shaped up that the Bears would do that against that team.
It seems like these two teams are heading in opposite directions.
Please let these teams be heading in opposite directions...
I then spend a little time talking about something that isn’t getting enough play in the media, and that’s the fantastic game from Mitchell Trubisky.
Next I drop some thoughts on Leonard Floyd and how he’s played all season long.
I preview the Bears vs. 49ers game.
Then I take a couple questions I fielded from Twitter yesterday. One had to do with the running game, so I dug up these surprising numbers.
Last year the #Bears passed the ball 54.82% of the time.— Lester A. Wiltfong Jr. (@wiltfongjr) December 20, 2018
This year through 14 games they've passed the ball 54.72% of the time. The designed runs from Trubisky, and Cohen's increase in carries, has made up for Howard being down about 2 carries per game from a year ago.
