Last night, against the Dallas Cowboys, Matt Nagy called his best game as Chicago Bears head coach.
Last night, even with a few wonky moments, Mitch Trubisky looked like the future at quarterback for the Chicago Bears.
Last night, with another starter heading to the locker room and new faces all over the place, the defense of the Chicago Bears looked like the group everyone expected to make them title contenders this season.
And David Montgomery.
And Anthony Miller.
And Cordarrelle Patterson.
And Holtz and Horsted and Mack and Fuller and…
…can’t we go back and start this 2019 campaign over again?
With just over 13 minutes remaining in the game, and the Bears leading 24-14, Mitch Trubisky took the snap.
Called his own number.
In one moment, in one play, the Bears reminded everyone what they were capable of being this season. The quarterback showed the world what he is capable of being when using all of his assets. The Dallas Cowboys are not a great team but they were three-point favorites at Soldier Field. They were expected to win. And they were thoroughly dominated. This was the performance many expected weekly from the 2019 Chicago Bears.
And on one Thursday night in December, they got it.
