Bears defense dominates, but what about Trubisky?


"We're just getting started". Despite the mediocre results through two games this season, Nagy insists that Trubisky is making progress.

The Bears made life miserable for Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson on Monday night.

It doesn't help that Trubisky has been one of the lowest-graded players on offense by Pro Football Focus through two games: Week 1 - 52.6, Week 2: 49.7. "You've got to be able to make them use the whole field, so we're never going to stop doing that".

Though the possibility to use the dropkick remained in the National Football League rulebook, it was not used to successfully kick a field goal again until 2005, when as a novelty New England Patriots quarterback Doug Flutie drop-kicked a fourth-quarter PAT in Week 17.

This is absolutely out of line with the spirit of Russian-Israeli partnership. It said Israel had only warned it one minute before launching the strikes.

Johnson can now collect termination pay and his salary from the Seahawks - which was guaranteed to start the season - hence the "double dip". It did about as well as anyone could have expected it to without linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J.

Houston's starting quarterback, Deshaun Watson, was an MVP candidate in 2017 before a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee cut his season short. Count Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark, who sacked Trubisky once and pressured him on several other plays, among the skeptics. In 2018 he ranks 23rd with a QBR of 44.0.

"That does go right to Russell's competitiveness - he's a battler and he's going to try to figure it out". Calitro called all the defensive plays and led the team in tackles with 8.

Thanks to that and two enormous interceptions from Shaquill Griffin, the Seahawks kept themselves alive and it paid off - if only temporarily - with a fluid, out-of-nowhere drive in the fourth quarter that put them back in the fight. Only the Arizona Cardinals are worse this season. That is good Seattle defense. Dickson, dropping the ball onto the turf before kicking it on the bounce, landed the ball on the 1-yard line in the arms of Anthony Miller, who could return it only 14 yards - putting the Bears 10 yards behind where they would have been with a touchback. Just like the previous week, the Bears offense hadn't scored a touchdown outside of the opening drive of the game.

Another play fake to Howard draws linebacker Barkevious Mingo (green arrow) toward the backfield, and Trubisky has no problem throwing a quick swing pass to Josh Bellamy (blue circle) for a gain of six and a first down.

That errant pass would prove to be the first of Trubisky's of two interceptions on the night.

Top-10 picks in 2017 - the Chiefs drafted Mahomes eight slots after the Bears took Trubisky second overall - the two quarterbacks, by virtue of Matt Nagy leaving Kansas City in January to coach the Bears, play in nearly identical offensive systems.

Brock and Salk asked Carroll about all of that, as well as what happened to running back Chris Carson (who was absent through most of the second half) and what went down during a sideline conversation between Wilson, Schottenheimer and Carroll in which a normally calm Wilson looked especially frustrated.

Australian politician Andrew Broad said: "I refuse to let some sicko wreck the income of our strawberries farmers [sic]". Angela Stevenson said she cut into metal and then realised she had given her son strawberries for his packed lunch.

The 24-year-old quarterback tossed a pair of interceptions, failed to connect on deep balls with several open receivers and - at times - seemed a little too eager to bolt from the pocket. When he holds the ball for longer than that his passer rating jumps to 115.7.
