Just one word: Yikes

In the latest episode of Bear With Me, Robert S. brings on talks through the Bears’ loss to the Titans.

When the Bears lost to the Rams two weeks ago, I honestly thought we’d seen the worst game of the season. I thought the team would respond against the Saints (which they did) and “show us their true colors” against a battered Tennessee defense that couldn’t pressure the passer and seemed to be giving up points to everyone, including Jacksonville and Cincinatti.

Unfortunately, if those were the Bears’ true colors this year, they weren’t very bright. The Bears’ offense started fast and jetted down the field before turning the ball over on downs and going three-and-out in its next three drives. They successfully faked a punt that made Barkevious Mingo their leading rusher for the better part of a game... and then immediately failed to gain a first down yet again.

Put simply, the only scoring this offense did for the first three quarters of this game was a fumble-return touchdown for Tennessee. And in Year 3 of Matt Nagy’s offense (Week 5 of Nick Foles’ tenure at quarterback), that’s just not good enough.

In this episode of Bear With Me, I broke down the Tennessee game as best I could while also talking through the potential future of the franchise. Throughout the show I talk about...

  • The Bears’ pathetic offensive showing
  • Matt Nagy’s frustrating play-calling performance
  • Why (at least) Ryan Pace needs to answer for
  • Thoughts on a good day from the Bears’ defense
  • And much, much more...

Check out the show and let us know what you think!
