Bears' Mitchell Trubisky Grappling With Growing Pains


Mack also had the crowd roaring with a strip-sack in the first half, smacking the ball out of Wilson's hand as he wound up to pass, and he consistently pressured the quarterback.

"Unfortunately, we wanted to do better in the third quarter", Carroll said. Going from a underqualified OC to a play caller coming from the NFL's most creative offense should only help but so far you've seen a lot of creativity but not consistent execution. Fluker and receiver Doug Baldwin due to injuries, and Baldwin's absence was particularly noticeable.

Seattle capped the scoring when rookie tight end Will Dissly caught a 2-yard touchdown with 14 seconds left. Brandon Marshall struggled to get open against one of his former teams. "I was off on the thing I said about Chris". "There's some things I definitely have to clean up".

What in the actual hell did we all just witness? It's the first time the Bears give this look in Monday's game after Nagy admitted he over-used some screens against the Packers.

But Wilson focused more on the two TDs Seattle scored in the fourth quarter, though the last one came in the closing seconds. No young quarterback has a chance playing under a head coach who is as old school driven as it gets, like Fox nowadays. Nothing special. I feel like he was OK.

After six carries for 24 yards in the first 18 minutes of what became a 24-17 loss to the Bears in Chicago, Carson never was heard from again. He then threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Lockett to trim the Bears' lead to 17-10 with 10:13 left. Veteran CB Prince Amukamara, reading an unhurried Wilson's eyes before he threw, closed his gap and stepped in front of Penny or an interception and a 49-yard return for a touchdown.

When was the last time the Bears were at or above the.500 mark?

Still, the offense had some solid performances worth noting.

Mitchell Trubisky started fast, slowed down and picked it up down the stretch.

Linebacker Mychal Kendricks had a sack after signing with Seattle on Friday. Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges, but he isn't expected to be sentenced in the case until January and the National Football League has yet to impose any discipline. "And I wanted to see how we could do with Rashaad and get him some playing time".

You don't need to be a football expert to credibly question Seattle's playcalling, specifically the way the Seahawks haven't made much of an attempt to run the ball through two games even though their stated intention was to revive that part of their offense.

He won the Ray Guy Award a year ago as the nation's best punter, was the MVP for the University of Texas' bowl win against Missouri, and replaced veteran Jon Ryan as the Seahawks' punter this season. Otherwise, Seattle's offensive line gets good marks for their pass-blocking ability; they rank eighth heading into Week 3. "This is going to be fun", Nagy said post-game, "and I'm excited for our future together". "When you're hungry for quarterbacks, you've got a ..." We're going to kick the ball well, we're going to change field position all that kind of stuff... as opposed to, "Let me get one extra shot to try to make it.' The momentum of the rush building on you is a factor and we'd like to eliminate that by not giving them the shots".
