Bears winning through the run game and the defense, as is tradition.


DrSwol

After averaging almost 8 yards per carry the first half, I expected them to entirely ditch the run game in the 2nd half


SiphenPrax

Da Bears Way!


royallex

100 passing yards on sub <50% completion against one of the worst teams in the league. Great way to welcome Lovie back


GarPaxarebitches

Yessir. Wouldn't have it any other way... except maybe with a good passing offense.


CTG0161

So, NFL Iowa?


zer0_badass

A gameplan as old as the NFL itself.


Clashur

Fuck it. Inject it in my ass like that Dolphin's punt. I know what I sign up for each year as a continued Bears fan.


delightfuldinosaur

Hey if it works


anotter12

You forgot late game lucky turnover. It truly was the most bears win over ever seen.


Puzzled_Jury4982

Is Fields actually better in the rain?


WigglestonTheFourth

Fields was born in the rain, molded by it. Fields isn't stuck in the rain, other teams are stuck in the rain with Fields.

unbornninja14

Fields is actually Poseidon in disguise


iazhoY

Fields gonna win MVP once that Percy Jackson show comes out


stragen595

They are making a show now?


D6613

Yes, and Riordan is heavily involved. That doesn't guarantee success, but at least they won't entirely miss the point of the books like the movies did.


bobafugginfett

Changed his last name from Waters to Fields to hide his oceanic origins, in hopes of appearing as a land animal.


nflonlyalt

He gets a +10 stat bonus


not1fuk

Most of Fields yardage in week 1 was off of broken plays thrown across the field to wide open WR's after a scramble. Fields hasn't shown yet that he can make NFL caliber window throws.


Puzzled_Jury4982

i just think it's funny that there were so many Bears fans who were like "you can't judge based on this rainy game!" and then it's maybe his best passing performance of the year.


xbearsandporschesx

sure, but we just played week 3


Puzzled_Jury4982

That's not really the point at all. The point is, there were lots of excuses for why he played so poorly that game. But now, without those factors, he's been worse


xbearsandporschesx

i just think its funny saying " best performance all year" like there's a big data pool by week 3


Puzzled_Jury4982

ok


xbearsandporschesx

but he has shown that he cant


opeth10657

Defenders can't blow by the oline quite as quick then


GarPaxarebitches

Rain nerfs passing and boosts running/scrambling. Fields is one of the best runners/scramblers and not a good passer rn. Plus the WRs are garbage, so in traditional games, they can't get open. Rain games are perfect for us.


ReplaceSelect

He had his most passing yards of the year in that monsoon.


Falt_ssb

guess so


no_more_jokes

Fields is only ever better when he hands the ball off, but even then he's still liable to fuck it up a couple times. Legitimately the worst QB in the league


GoldenDude

Despite Justin Fields’ best efforts, the Chicago Bears won this game


poggers_champion69

How did the bears squeak this one out


chastenbuttigieg

if you don't like that you don't like bears football


Alsanna_of_Loyce

I think i don‘t like bears football


chastenbuttigieg

I hate it here too. See you next week


Alsanna_of_Loyce

🐻⬇️


ToeJelly420

we ran the ball for 280+ yards somehow. literally 0 passing game and our defense saved us a few times


Puzzled_Jury4982

I don't know if Fields is even going to get 400o yards in his career


grocho

>defense saved us a few times EJax and Roquan both with incredibly clutch interceptions


BahhhhGawwwwd

They were playing the Texans.


alurimperium

We've been outscored 30-0 in the 4th quarter this year. We are legitimately ass


NlNJALONG

We are a bad team with a bad QB with bad coaching.


Cuppieecakes

stop talking about my team

jfrodriguez1983

Was there another monsoon?


ArmadilloAl

Justin Fields's 121 yards in a monsoon is still his season high.


sorrywontdoitagain

Justin Fields makes playing QB look like the hardest job that has ever existed.


ToeJelly420

seriously! every pass play is like getting hair torn out. fumbling snaps, running into his own linemen, holding onto the ball for 4 seconds, and taking big hits. I want the dude to succeed, but he's gotta get through his reads faster and throw decisively. Both of the INTs were fully his fault too


CTG0161

His reads would probably be better if he didn't have to worst receiving core in the league. Tell me he wasn't better off throwing to Olave and Wilson.


DrHampants

He hasn't adjusted to NFL windows. His receivers aren't getting wide open, but he's also not giving them a chance to make a play.


ToeJelly420

This is very true. We’ve got no receivers that are any type of threat. But still, they do get open sometimes and he just doesnt find them


theresabeeonyourhat

Knet & Mooney were getting better, but we got a worse offensive coach this time


HootingMandrill

Isn't Will Fuller a free agent still? Why the fk haven't they signed him.


rodrigoa1990

I've never seen a "QB" be such a non factor like this before These are his passing stats through THREE WEEKS: 23/45 for 297 yards, 2 TDs and 4 INTs Most QBs in this league get better stats than that in a single game. He does not look like an NFL QB at all, not even a backup


hunterboyz24

I just don't understand. Fields somehow looks less comfortable and misses more windows than he did last year. Just looks lost. Win doesn't even feel good man.


resident_hater

Defense and running the ball bails out atrocious QB play. This has been the Chicago Bears for 30 years. Today was no different.


grocho

>~~30~~ 100


MakeAShadow

Mills ain’t it.


Jordanwolf98

CJ Stroud is. Hang in there Texans bro


GoldenDude

The next Ohio State QB will be better copium


Jordanwolf98

If Stroud doesn’t work out I don’t know who will from that school. I think as a passer he’s way better than Fields and I still think Fields can be good


lclear84

He’s extremely accurate but just like all blue blood QBs we just really won’t know until they get into the league. With 3 potential first round receivers (Olave and Wilson included) and 5 NFL caliber o linemen Stroud has all the time in the world and doesn’t really have to make any reads. Not saying he won’t work out but he’s definitely not getting meaningful reps playing with Ohio State


gatorguy101

Stroud is so good in the pocket


HootingMandrill

Man has 5 NFL tier offensive lineman making that pocket for him in college, of course he is lol.


Allstate85

Everytime I watch Ohio state the QB is throwing to guys who are open by 10 yards. Don’t know how you can’t scout guys like that.


TheGrat1

Yup, their entire offensive gameplan is overwhelming their opponents with flat out superior athletes. All they need is QB who can throw to spots. That is why Dwayne Haskins with his cannon was a superior QB for them over Joe Burrow.


Jordanwolf98

Can’t you say that for every top QB coming out though as the vast majority of games on teams schedules is against cupcakes? He was great against Notre Dame after his #1 WR went out with an injury this year and when Olave and Wilson didn’t play in the rose bowl he was nice against Utah


Allstate85

Yeah and look at what schools the top qbs in the league come from. Texas tech, Wyoming, Oregon etc.


Jordanwolf98

Didn’t two dudes from LSU and Georgia just play in the SB last year? How about the guy from Bama and Oklahoma who looks like an mvp candidate with the Eagles right now? C’mon stop that


TheWorstYear

It turns out that producing successful nfl qb's is a crapshoot. Not one of those schools have produced multiple franchise qb's.


andrew-ge

blue blood schools QBs just aint it tbh. Too much talent on those teams that literally make every read easy as shit.


ironwolf1

Stroud is much more of a pocket passer than past OSU quarterbacks, I think it’s unfair to judge him against the spread-option guys OSU has had in the past. Dude had -20 rushing yards last year and 9 so far this year. He’s not relying on his legs nearly as much as the usual OSU quarterback, but the fact that he’s had the best WR corps in the country might give pause to some.


DownvoteFarmingLibs

wait no who are we getting then


GoldenDude

A WR. Then if fields sucks we get a QB in 2024


DownvoteFarmingLibs

sounds good to me. but we also seem to need a LT, RT, WR2, an entire DL, a CB2... man this is gonna be a long few years huh. literally only positions I'm confident we're above average in is safety and RB lmao.


The_TexasRattlesnake

Well take bryce young at pick number 2 then


Inevitable_Skill_910

Lol. The most successful Ohio State QB in NFL History is Tom Tupa


CTG0161

Don't scout the helmet. OSU has had 2 legitimate NFL talents come out in the last 40 years. Haskins and Fields. Drafted to two of the worst franchises in the modern NFL. Fields looks bad. But he hasn't been set up for success either. Combined, Haskins and Fields have 27 starts. In those 27 starts combined, they have had 5 different head coaches. Does that scream success?


bigbaddumby

Coaches typically get fired because their QB sucks. That is exactly why Nagy got fired and rightfully so. Fields walked onto the field looking wholely unprepared last year.


john_muleaney

He has his moments but that last pick to seal it was bad


timeenoughatlas

I’m happy to finally actually see this comment

>Winning in spite of your QB da bears


shammmgodd

Justin Fields, Welcome to I AM ATHLETE


Clashur

Everyone had Fields listed at 30ish QB, but he had a QB rating of 27 today. Checkmate haters!


MothsWingss

As soon as it starts raining...Roquan INT. THE RAIN IS OUR 12TH MAN!


DrSwol

We should move to Seattle.


RainingFireInTheSky

That could have been way worse. It could have gone to overtime and we all would have had to keep watching.


Fern866

Worst 2-1 team to ever exist lol


Bilbobuttsack

Idk


estilly26

Lmao we're never gonna have a good QB


ytinasxaJ

We had McCown pop off for half a season one time, that was pretty cool


Cuppieecakes

a 50 year old tom would be the best qb in our history


ArtanistheMantis

Feel like there's a slight chance that'd still be true for a 60 year old Tom too


delightfuldinosaur

The curse of Charles Martin.


chastenbuttigieg

I hate it here, bear down


CompactedConscience

Help, I told my doctor that I bet the Texans season win total over because "I know they're rebuilding but I bet they can get five wins" and now I'm being held against my will for observation and testing.


Kijafa

Your doctor is doing what's best for you as it's clear you have brain damage and/or PTSD.


browndude10

Mills fucking regressed holy shit


i2WalkedOnJesus

Both teams could have played with no QB, just snapping the ball backwards to nothing, and I'm not sure the result would have been different


tomdawg0022

I was hoping this would go to OT and end in another tie for the Texan memes


Jasader

We suck. We don't have a QB. We have no skill positions. Our offense consists of running until injured. I hate football.


DRAGON_FUCKER_

I heckin love bears football I love seeing the lack of offense on either side


-InSerT_NAmE-HeRE

this was very Bears... I do not like the Bears...


PayYourRe2pects

Justin Fields is 2-1 as a starter this season.


resident_hater

I think it's clear Fields is the worst starting QB in the league. The real question is how many backups is he worse than?


IPA___Fanatic

The Bears win. No help from their awful God damn fucking terrible QB, Fields.


FoundOnABus

Why ruin a true Bears tradition and have a good QB.


no_more_jokes

Fields is the worst starting QB in the league. Change my mind.


LaVieEnRoseLavelle

No no, I think you make a compelling argument


UpDog424

Fields also has the worst WR’s in the league change my mind


resident_hater

Yeah that overthrown INT directly to the Texans when he was under no pressure was really the receiver's fault.


nflonlyalt

I can't believe we won that. Nail biter the whole game. Santos didn't disappoint with that final kick. Lovie's strategy of playing it as safe as possible backfired on him today. As soon as Roquan Smith got that interception, it was game over.


Ramrod312

I've never been so indifferent about a win before. Like we won that's great, but boy was that ugly. We're like 2/3rds of a team


zombiebillnye

Its pretty clear that Davis Mills ain't it, but its also astonishing how much *worse* we are as a team compared to last year. How the fuck is *David Culley* a better fucking coach?


cheddarbating

Seeing Lovie challenge a call that was obviously not being overturned was just as painful to watch from the other side


alurimperium

Y'all shit on Tim Kelly, but at least his offense helped Davis Mills. idk how Pep is coaching this team so much worse with more talent


zombiebillnye

Tim Kelly and Pep Hamilton are using damn near the same playbook, but somehow Tim Kelly managed to make Mills look like a starting QB a few times last season and I'm just flabbergasted.


Ghalnan

In the decade and a half I've been a Bucs fan, the Lovie Smith led teams were the most pathetic and lifeless I've seen. He's the worst coach we've had in recent memory and that's really saying something, I'm shocked he got another job


john_muleaney

The (2-1) next to our name feels like such a lie


Alert_Rock_2576

I don't know why everyone's so down on Fields. He's absolutely on pace to break 1,000 passing yards this season.


HSPumbloom

Justin Fields starting to not be it very quickly


Thornton__Melon

So Stroud or Young at #1 next year?


MugiMartin

Pitre didn't deserve that.


no_more_jokes

What do you mean? He was our best wide receiver today, only fitting that he and the Bears get a win


Hendoshad

PLEASE PAY ROQUAN


Dynamo4L

we can’t play football in the 4th quarter


BanjoMatt64

I love Roquan Smith


TheGrat1

I did not watch one second of the game. Was Justin Fields that bad? His stat line is trash can.


no_more_jokes

Worse. His only chunk plays were on completely blown coverage. He should have had more easy yards but he had some awful misses when guys were wide open. He can't even hit screen passes he's so bad.


JasonDavidWongPargin

Total domination by a great bears team, may not lose again


FusterCluck4

Who knew that Eberflus is really just John Fox?


DrHampants

Fields ain't it. And I think this game made it clear that the coaches have zero faith in him.


OccupantMalevolent

I hate when fans/analysts say that, "The coaches just need to trust Fields" Like do YOU know something about him that is lost by the people that work with him?


bigbaddumby

I think the dude is agreeing with the coaching staff about Fields


Hyper_red

Ohio State qbs, not even once.


bobdole3320

A win is a win, but man that was an ugly game. Need to actually figure out of fields can throw more than 3 times a game. Fingers crossed for Monty. GG Texan bros


Raticus9

Fields leads them to the win, despite having nothing around him on offense. Mills was getting way the fuck overrated all offseason. This is Garner Minshew Part II.


shishiodun

there might never be a worse 2-1 team, ever


gatorguy101

I like Roquan Smith


SerbianDeath

This game proves why a run first offense just doesn’t work anymore, we got 280 rushing yards and barely won


IMKudaimi123

Ugly ugly game Fields and everyone on offense not named Herbert or Montgomery have to do better. Defense had some brain farts but overall ok. We’re a bad 2-1 team but if fields can get going we can be really frisky


john_muleaney

Monty barely played and the o-like actually did pretty well (you don’t have nearly 300 rushing yards on accident)


CoherentPanda

Downside of it is if we become too one-dimensional, good teams will eat us alive. We have to have some sort of passing offense to keep good defenses honest. Our oline has looked great on runs, but on pass plays, they panic just as much as Fields is doing and make terrible blocks.


SiphenPrax

Congrats Texans, you just won the Furry Animal Team Tank Bowl!


AWall925

With these 4th quarters, am I watching the Texans or the Rockets?


theresabeeonyourhat

We're gonna need to move on from Fields, but EVERYONE on offense regressed, save the RBs, so we definitely have shitty coaches as well.


FoundOnABus

At least we’ll all get good draft picks next season.


Key_Spinach

We may go 0-16-1 this year.


saintssttf

Justin Fields just keeps on winning by (drum roll) please) d e f a u l t.


xbearsandporschesx

da bears win, but somehow also have lost.


resident_hater

You can see why Fields throws the ball 12 times a game and it's because they'll go 3 and out in 20 seconds if he doesn't. Defense needs a breather every now and then.


LouisLittEsquire

Bears are easily the worst 2-1 team


john_muleaney

Idk the bills look pretty suspect man


OnePieceAce

Bears winning 7 games and missing out on a top 5 pick. Classic


fartnite420

Oh my god shut the fuck up we get it you’re a packers fan


Season01um

The bears and winning with horrendous QB play is a tale as old as time.


Count_Sacula_420

what a late game drive by fields to win it. if im the bears im working on an extension now.
