John Fox, Dowell Loggains handling of Mitch Trubisky not all it appears

Monday, December 11th, 2017

A double-digit win over a phoning-it-in Cincinnati Bengals team likely doesn't change the direction of where John Fox's future has been trending ever since the off week. What Sunday's game at Cincinnati spotlighted was the development of a rookie quarterback, and Mitch Trubisky's day was what GM Ryan Pace had in mind when he made a draft gamble for someone with 13 college starts. It also was what the organization had in its fondest imaginings back at the beginning of October when the change was made from Mike Glennon to Trubisky.

Snow football is the best football, and other Week 14 thoughts

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Fun has too often been lacking in the NFL this season, but there’s just something so beautiful about seeing players make plays on a white field, looking more like kids in the backyard on a snow day than like highly paid professionals. Both the Colts’ Frank Gore and the Bills’ LeSean McCoy had career highs in carries, with Gore going for 130 yards on 36 carries, while McCoy ran for 158 yards on 32 carries, the 32nd of which was the game-winning touchdown in overtime. McCoy may be the best snow runner the NFL has ever seen.

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

While he remains hospitalized in Pittsburgh, Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier continues to show gradual improvement from his back injury, people familiar with his condition told ESPN. Doctors are controlling and limiting his movement as they wait for the swelling and bruising in his back to subside, sources said. It is premature to say whether Shazier will play football again, but the focus right now is not on his playing career but on trying to facilitate his recovery. Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery Wednesday after suffering a severe back injury against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night. He spent Monday and Tuesday night at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center before

Trubisky has best game, Bears get biggest victory in 5 years

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Coach John Fox answered the final question in a raspy voice and headed back toward his happy Chicago locker room. It had been a long time since the Bears had anything worth celebrating, and they enjoyed a lot of yell-for-joy moments against a Bengals team that's gone from hopeless to hapless. Rookie Mitchell Trubisky threw for a touchdown and ran for another in his best showing, and Chicago ended a five-game losing streak by routing the lackluster Bengals 33-7 on Sunday.

Blowout win over Cincinnati turns on the light at the end of the tunnel for Bears’ young core

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

If the Bears pull off a Los Angeles Rams-esque turnaround in 2018, their future offensive success might look a little like what went down in Sunday's 33-7 thrashing of the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. Mitchell Trubisky completed 25 of 32 passes for 271 yards with a touchdown and didn't turn the ball over while operating more aggressive offensive gameplan. Jordan Howard rumbled for 147 yards on 23 carries with two touchdowns, and Tarik Cohen provided a spark with 80 yards on 12 carries.

Mitchell Trubisky plays his best game as Bears blow out the Bengals

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

After spending much of his rookie season playing in a safe, cautious, run-first offense, Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky was permitted to air it out today in Cincinnati, and he delivered in a big way. Trubisky played the best game of his young career, completing 25 of 32 passes for 271 yards, with a touchdown and no turnovers, as the Bears dominated the Bengals, 33-7. In fact, we may look back and say this was the game that marked the end of Marvin Lewis’s tenure as the Bengals’ head coach.
