“Maserati” Mitch Trubisky is back under center for the Chicago Bears. Nick Foles had not practiced all week and number 10 is getting the nod. What does this mean for the Bears going forward? We can definitely say this much, Sunday night is a must win.


Mitchell definitely gives the Bears offense a completely different dynamic with his ability to be mobile and extend the play. He may lack the cerebral aspect of the game but he is definitely way more athletic than Foles. The Bears coaching staff is blaming the switch on injury at this point. But how true is that?

The horrid offensive line play has to have an effect on who will be the QB going forward. Many believe the move back to Trubisky was inevitable. The injury is just helping the decision easier to make ultimately.

Trubisky was 3-0 at the point he was benched in favor of Foles. He was having a really bad game and the Bears just rode the hot hand. However, Nick Foles has not looked good since taking control of the offense. What QB would look go behind this offensive line? Trubisky will give the offense more of a chance by extending the play with his athletic ability and it is the only reason the move makes sense.

Bill Lazor Must Call the Plays

Lazor started out against the Vikings making some truly great play calls. The Bears offense looked average (for the time being). The bye week should have bought Bill Lazor and this offense a little time to build chemistry. Lazor must be the guy calling the plays on Sunday night. Keep it simple for Mitch. Use his athleticism to his advantage. Put him in a position to use his strengths to power the offense to a win.

David Montgomery’s return will boost the Bears run game (even if it is a non-existent one). Lazor looked to really go to the run game in the first quarter of the Vikings games using Cordarrell Patterson as the feature back. With a true RB in the backfield, Patterson can be used as the wildcard he is. Move him around the field, and as a receiver out of the backfield. This offense could turn things around if Lazor gets the play calling right with the tools he will have on Sunday.

Must win

Sunday is a must win for the Bears. Not only to stay in contention for the division but because it’s the Packers. This could be Trubisky’s coming out party (or cameo appearance). If Trubisky comes out and plays well, he will have all the fans on his bandwagon once again. With the agony the fans have felt over the past couple of weeks, a loss to the Packers will all but feel like the season is over. So, the Bears and Trubisky truly need to come out of this one victorious.

The Bears have the easier schedule going down the stretch. The Bears Brawl Mike Brez discussed the Bears path to the playoffs on his podcast. Starting that stretch with a win against the bitter rival would be monumental for confidence. The Bears could ride that to an NFC North crown.


It is Packer week folks! If you call yourself a real Bears fan you need no motivation to get pumped for this game. Packers week is the premier week for Bears football. This week is all the more important with everything the games has riding on it. It is Bears vs Packers and “Maserati” Mitch is back under center. Bears fans let us pull together and will our team to a win. BEAR DOWN!
