Chicago Bears: 3 reasons for optimism after Week 1
Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season was not what the Chicago Bears had hoped for. But, thankfully, there are reasons to be optimistic.
What a wild Week 1. The 2019 NFL season kicked off with some intense, eye-popping and unpredictable games. For the Chicago Bears, they had arguably the most ho-hum game of the week.
In a 10-3 loss to the Green Bay Packers, the Bears failed to put up a fight offensively and posed a few questions to fans as to what exactly is going on with this team. Of course, it is indeed that time of the year, though.
Week 1 overreactions have filtered in aplenty since the loss to Green Bay.
Whether you’re overreacting or not, the fact of the matter is, the Bears’ lack of execution on offense was shocking, to say the least. It almost looked as if the unit regressed from last year, which is the exact opposite of what you’d like to see in Year 2 of the scheme.
Matt Nagy admitted to some mistakes on his part, but the team needs to be better as a whole. That part is clear.
The silver lining is the fact that it is only Week 1. The season is long. The team is pretty healthy overall. Plenty of teams would kill to have the injury report in Chicago at this point, even after just one week. That’s a huge positive.
There are a lot of other reasons to be optimistic, though. Some fans want to throw in the towel after just one week, but let’s take a step back and breathe a bit. Check out a few more reasons why you should not only remain calm, but also keep a positive outlook going into Week 2.
