Chicago got the win on Monday night over Seattle and it is clear the defense for the Bears is playoff worthy. They avoided the 0-2 start and now they need their offense to come around to be considered a contender. Soft spot in the schedule for this one. .
Arizona is about as low as it can be after a couple of weeks. Is this the time to start making changes that look to the future…I think so, but I am not running the team. You might want to stay away from these guys right now. They are very messy.
After losing on the road in the opener the way they did at Green Bay you had to wonder if there might be a lingering effect on the Bears. Last Monday they were far from spectacular but they were in control the whole game in evening their record at 1-1.
When you watch Mitch Trubisky throw it is obvious he has arm talent but I am not sure he is ever going to be smart with his decision. Maybe that is a harsh decision for a player still early in his career but he just doesn’t seem comfortable out there when he has to throw.
The Bears defense was strong against Seattle. Russell Wilson was under pressure all game long and they dumped him for six sacks. They also completely bottle up the running game. Once they got the lead the defense was able to let the offense sputter. These guys are very strong up front.
Chicago is not going to be a contender until their offense gets a lot better. Still they get to take on a team in turmoil in Arizona and can be a little loose having gotten their first victory out of the way. This is a good spot for Chicago. .
It might not be getting as much attention because they are out west but it is hard to find a team that has looked worse than Arizona through two games. They were a dud against Washington in the opener and didn’t even get on the scoreboard last week against the Rams. They are 0-2 and have been outscored 58-6.
They drafted UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen in the first round but he has yet to play this season. The Rams are really good but Sam Bradford was not up to the task last week, or the week before. How much longer til they throw the rookie in their and let him take some lumps. He is a confident kid so I don’t think they will ruin him.
I doubt it would be the reason but ageless receiver Larry Fitzgerald might miss this one due to a hamstring injury. He is the exact sort of reliable target any quarterback would want. Things have been so messy that nobody is talking about David Johnson being back on the field. No reason to with the stats he is posting.
Arizona is 0-2 and that is essentially an indicator that the rest of the season is lost. The question is are they going to be competitive at all because so far we have not seen any indicators. Keep an eye on the quarterback situation. It could be an energizer if Rosen plays or a demotivator if they just keep doing what they are doing.
