Going to be a tough game and need D to show up. Bears D is good and I think QB Mitchell Trubisky could be a Smith type tough QB, he has leadership skills.

Bump ... Da Bears talk.

If John Fox is ever going to let Mitch Trubisky come out and play, the Saints are it - Chicago Tribune

Re: On To The Bears

This writer is a moron ...

But guess what? The next opponent is a cupcake. The NFL ranks the Saints defense 10th-worst. The Saints stand fourth-worst on third down. They’re just outside the bottom 10 in passing yards and their average of allowing 4.9 yards per carry ranks second-worst in the league.

The Saints present a buffet of bad defense. The Bears ought to eat well. There’s more reason to expect more from Trubisky this week. There’s more reason to expect the Bears to let him do more.

And that goes from here on out. Especially from here on out. After the Saints, the Bears face the Packers, Lions and Eagles, all of whom have defenses nearly as bad as the Saints’. Then comes the 49ers, who are worse than all of them.

Re: On To The Bears

We have the 4th ranked offense in ppg and ypg...

We have the 23rd rated D in ypg and 16th rated D in ppg...

When we won the Superbowl we had the 20th ranked D in ppg and the 25th in ypg

In '09 we were ranked 3rd in the turnover margin; guess what we are this year so far? (5TH)

So we have a better defense than we had when we won the Superbowl!

We also have the 11th ranked D in total defense and the Bears are 21st...

Re: On To The Bears

That maybe true on paper

But redo them stats after week 2 and the team ranks far higher. No surprise a team that was full of new players and rookies struggle out the box.

Lost our best DT from ladt year
A new DE
3 new LBs
New safety and finding a starting CB

Re: On To The Bears

Have you guys watched any of the Chicago WR's as of late? If the Saints can effectively play good run D, make the rookie one dimensional the Bears are done. They have no down field threats.

I take no NFL team for granted but Trubisky won't beat (Bears rank 30# in offense) this Saints team with his arm.
