The 2018 and 2019 seasons of the Chicago Bears have been riding parallel to each other for four straight weeks now. We’ve seen a tough opening season loss followed by three straight wins that were led by a kick-ass defense and an offense that has gotten a bit better each week.
This year’s week 4 win wasn’t as explosive as last year’s 48 to 10 win against the Buccaneers, but when considering how tough the Minnesota Vikings defense is, beating them 16-6 felt just as satisfying.
But what’s not satisfying is another quarterback controversy brewing in the Windy City.
I suppose this is just the norm for a city that hasn’t had an honest to goodness franchise QB since Sid Luckman, but I find it unbelievable how quick some of our fans are ready to move on to the next guy.
After yesterday’s game we shot out the following Tweet.
How do you feel about the 3-1 #Bears after winning 16 to 6 against the Vikings?— Windy City Gridiron (@WCGridiron) September 30, 2019

And here’s what some of you guys had to say.
Tre loves it when the defense imposes their will upon opponents, but they need to let Daniel throw a little more in my opinion
I think that Tweet featured someone talking about himself in the third person.
I really really really want to see Trubisky succeed. But it’s getting harder to support/defend him when the backup (albeit backup with a lot of Nagy offense experience) puts up similar numbers that I would have expected Mitch to after his start to the season.
Also, Nagy has to be working really hard to keep that locker room as one team. If I’m on the defense after today especially, I’m not happy with the offense. That game should have been over after the fumble to start the second half. Offense couldn’t get into the end zone, defense had to play lights out the entire second half.
The defense played great. It’s also no longer a speculation, Trubisky is so strongly disliked that a QB who put up subpar numbers, had great field position, virtually did nothing in the 2nd half and had 16 total points is supposedly way better.— Jake (@Jake_BennettNFL) September 30, 2019
Is it time to think about drafting Jalen Hurts next year??
I thought it was a great team win overall. Lots of guys stepped up. Concerned about the OLine play still. Play calling has improved from Nagy. Still saw Pinero with the limp. Wonder if that will linger all season.— Aaron (@Ditkapunch187) September 30, 2019
Who cares? It doesn’t have to be pretty. Just get the job done. The standings don’t reflect how you got your win or how you lost a game.— Aalap Desai (@ADesai410) September 30, 2019
3 wins, 1 loss. Playoff hopes and Super Bowl dreams still alive.
We’re on to, Oakland. In London. Bear down.
Feeling okay about the team.— Derrick Matthews (@Chug_Dandy) September 30, 2019
The defense looks great, but it does trouble me that our backup QB seems to run the offense better than our "franchise" QB.
Great team win. Obvious Trubisky skill sets not aligned with Nagy offensive system. Something has to give for this team to reach full potential. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.— BobbyC (@BobbyC79471085) September 30, 2019
Feels Great ! Defense is DOUBLE PLATINUM! But when are we gonna let David Montgomery be David Montgomery?!!His talent is 2nd to None and it seems we only have one play for him between the tackles and when he fights through getting the tough yards he is pulled out! USE #32!— Jdilla bland (@JdillaBland) September 30, 2019
id like to see how Mitch does week in and out with the playcalling that happened yesterday against the Vikes— Styngray (@StyngrayChosen) September 30, 2019
For those who were too young to remember the ‘85 team, this defense is trying to remind you. ⬇️— Sherrygooner (@Sherrymon) September 30, 2019
