Monday night’s 24-17 victory against the Seahawks gave Nagy his first triumph as an NFL head coach. Now, the Bears and their dominant defense look to make it two in a row against a woeful Cardinals team in Arizona. Our team of Bears writers weighs in on four timely topics.• 5 things we learned about Mitch Trubisky from his and Matt Nagy’s media sessions Wednesday (Chicago Tribune)Here are five things we learned about Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky from his and Matt Nagy’s media sessions Wednesday.• Bears Q&A: How has the offensive line played? Are Mitch Trubisky’s stats deceiving? (Chicago Tribune)Well, Trubisky has completed 69.6 percent of his passes so far, which ranks eighth in the NFL. I agree that stats can be deceiving and he has missed some throws that everyone is expecting him to make. What the Bears haven’t done is successfully throw the ball downfield. I am sure that will come in time. Every decision and throw he is making is being microanalyzed right now and it will be that way for a while. The sample size in Matt Nagy’s offense is extremely small. Let’s see how he develops over the course of the season. While Gabriel hasn’t had an explosive play yet — though he could’ve against the Seattle Seahawks had Mitch Trubisky not overthrown him when he was open over the middle in the first quarter — he has made contributions in two important areas: Run blocking, and scrapping for yards on quick throws.• Ostrowski: Take the under on a couple of the NFL’s worst offenses (The Athletic)Two rookie head coaches with two of the NFL’s worst offenses face off in the desert. Fun stuff.Matt Nagy would actually receive some criticism if it weren’t for his successful, scripted opening drives and if he weren’t so affable with the media. The Bears’ first drives have accounted for a whopping 32 percent of their offensive yardage. If you remove those two touchdowns, Mitch Trubisky has led his team into the end zone once in 19 drives.Friday, September 21• Scouting report on Cardinals linebacker Deone Bucannon: ‘Classic example of where the NFL is going’ (Chicago Tribune)Cardinals linebacker Deone Bucannon is a very good blitzer and he’s developed better instincts for finding the football in the run game. So he’s really the classic example of where the NFL is going, taking an athlete who has some size and striking ability and moving him closer to the line of scrimmage. • Jon Gruden’s decision to get rid of Khalil Mack looks dumber with each game (USA Today)As the Oakland Raiders struggle to get pressure — imagine that — Mack continues to wreak havoc for a defense that is shaping up to be a quarterback’s worst nightmare. The Chicago Bears sacked Russell Wilson six times in Monday night’s 24-17 victory over the Seattle Seahawks, giving them an NFL-best 10 after the first two weeks of the season.Mack had one of those sacks, giving him two for the season. That’s as many as the entire Raiders defense has, for those who might want to track things like that.“That’s neither here nor there. I can’t really speak on that,” Mack said, refusing to gloat. “Being where I’m at right now — you said we’re leading the league (in sacks)? That’s a great feeling and this win took it over the top.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Steve Wilks isn’t alone. Six first-year NFL head coaches have started the 2018 NFL season with a combined 3-11 record through two weeks of play.Arguably, it’s the Chicago Bears under former Kansas City Chiefs innovator Matt Nagy who have showed the best early on. The Bears enter a Week 3 meeting at State Farm Stadium to face the winless Arizona Cardinals with a 1-1 record.They come off a 24-17 Monday Night Football victory over the Seattle Seahawks but started the season being victimized by Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who shook off an injury and led the Packers to a 24-23 win thanks to three fourth-quarter touchdowns.

Whether it’s Nagy’s unique offense keeping the Cardinals off balance or newly-acquired pass rusher Khalil Mack leading what looks to be a talented defense, Arizona will have its work cut out on Sunday.Related LinksWilks: Sam Bradford needs help, Cardinals to scale back playbookTrivia Tuesday: QBs with six or more TD passes in a gameLarry Fitzgerald buying patrons’ meals to help ailing Scottsdale deli ownerTo keep you up on the what’s happening in the Windy City leading to kickoff, it’s Behind Enemy Lines.Sunday, September 23• What to Watch for: Bears vs. Cardinals (Daily Herald)Coach Matt Nagy’s team is coming off an exhilarating and at-times-dominating victory on Monday night over the Seahawks, while the Cardinals have been outscored 58-6 this year. The Bears proved they could respond after a devastating Week One loss; now they must show the same resiliency after a big win.• Three keys and prediction: Bears – Cardinals (NBC Sports Chicago)The Bears’ defense has dominated for six of the eight quarters it’s played this year, but of the 41 points it’s allowed, 35 have come in the final 15 minutes. Granted, Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson are two of the more clutch late-game quarterbacks in the NFL, while Bradford has been horrendous this year (maybe the fourth quarter quarterback will be rookie Josh Rosen, for all we know). ErrorOK ErrorOKWith Mitch Trubisky struggling at times to make plays under pressure, a second standout pass rusher could be a problem.• Bears’ script for success is working; now it’s time to carry out offensive plan through rest of game (Chicago Tribune)The Bears have scored opening-drive touchdowns in the first two games, and while that might not sound like a major feat, it’s something they accomplished only five times during the three previous seasons.• Heavily-favored Bears not taking woebegone Arizona Cardinals lightly (NBC Sports Chicago)The Bears are 15-35 since the beginning of 2015, and haven’t been over .500 in four years. So this team is in no position to feel overly confident about any game — even if it’s against a team that’s played horrendous football the first two weeks of the season.• Gabriel: Bears Defense Can Be Scary Good (670 The Score)The Bears lead the NFL with 10 sacks in two games. If they can continue to put that kind of pressure on opposing quarterbacks, it will lead to more turnovers. The defense has already created four turnovers (two fumble recoveries and two interceptions), and I don’t think we have seen what the group is capable of doing. Don’t be surprised if there are some four-takeaway games coming for the Bears. Saturday, September 22• More sacks for Bears’ Khalil Mack?

As bad as he’s looked, even the most cynical sports radio callers know Trubisky is capable of getting better. His career has just begun. How good will he get in 2018?• Three keys and prediction: Bears – Cardinals (NBC Sports Chicago)The best chance the Bears’ offense has of success, even against a defense that’s allowing a touch over six yards per play, is for Trubisky to link up with a receiver for a big-chunk play. It could be on a downfield throw, or maybe a catch-and-run to Gabriel or Tarik Cohen. Either way, Trubisky and this offense needs to quickly establish that they can make big-chunk plays through the air.• Final thoughts: Taylor Gabriel doing the little things to become a complete receiver (NBC Sports Chicago)last_img read more
