The Chicago Bears are 0-2. The offense hasn’t looked impressive. Neither has the defense. That on its own would be bad enough.
Then Justin Fields says in a press conference what’s been apparent for a while. Then defensive coordinator Alan Williams resigns from the team after being absent from the team for last week’s game. Then left tackle Braxton Jones goes on IR with a neck injury. Then the Bears have six-figures worth of equipment stolen from them.
By the way, did I mention the Bears still have to face only the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs this week?
It’s been a busy week for the Navy and Orange, in most of the ways that an NFL team prefers it not to happen, especially in Week 3. But if Fields delivered a needed wake-up call to the Bears offense and the defense manages to keep a thus-far-struggling Chiefs offense held down, maybe the Bears can keep it within the spread.
Or maybe they can just take the win and give the fans a little hope, who knows.
Either way. Bear Down, my friends.
