NFL: Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

In my latest T Formation Conversation podcast, I spend a little time recapping Mitchell Trubisky’s day against the San Francisco 49ers in the Chicago Bears 14-9 win. He only had four incomplete passes on the day, yet some were trying to paint the picture that he sucked last Sunday afternoon.

If you haven’t seen this breakdown from Dan Orlovsky yet, give it a watch because I reference it in my show.

After breaking down some of Trubisky’s play and the game-plan from last week, I turn my attention to this Sunday’s season finale against the Minnesota Vikings. It’s a must win for Minny, and the Bears are still playing for the two seed in the NFC.

On paper, the Bears are the better team, but emotions could be higher for the home team, plus there is a scenario where the Bears pull their starters at halftime.

If they play to win, I think the Bears will win, and my three keys for the game are;

  1. Pass protection
  2. Let Trubisky control the tempo
  3. Make Kirk Cousins beat them

After hitting on a Vikings preview, I turn my attention to a few questions I got from Twitter.

I answer them in this order...

Thanks for the questions guys!
