Five biggest takeaways from Chicago Bears win over Seattle Seahawks

Adjust Comment Print

And it doesn't seem to be for getting exhausted during games.

The Seahawks head back to Seattle for next Sunday's home opener looking for answers after an ugly night at Soldier Field in which they gave up five sacks and two turnovers while yet again failing to get their running game rolling.

For the offense to win games, Trubisky has to grow up quickly in Nagy's offense.

Desperate because of injuries, the Seahawks Friday had to let go well-regarded veteran DT Tom Johnson, but hoped to re-sign him out of free agency perhaps as soon as this week, once regular players returned to active duty and temp help could be jettisoned. The last player to do that in a game was Mack himself, in Week 12 of the 2016 season against the Carolina Panthers. Later, on a third-and-1 play, Nagy pulled out a direct snap to Burton to keep a field goal drive alive. That's a load he, heck, any National Football League back, should be able to carry. Then came the game-breaking play: On second-and-9, Wilson dropped back while staring left at Penny along the sideline.

Wilson began the fourth quarter with just 69 yards on 9-for-20 passing, but he tried to rally the Seahawks down the stretch.

Carson seemed to be in a good temperament during the second half and after the loss to the Bears.

A day after Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes - an understudy to Nagy in Kansas City past year and a fellow first-round pick with Trubisky in the 2017 draft - threw six touchdown passes to reach 10 for the season two weeks in, Trubisky was further put under the microscope for his performances through 14 career starts. So, getting over plays and just building on what I did good and forgetting about what I did bad and continuing to improve and get better and learn this offense. Just got to be sharper in everything that I do.

When the Seattle Seahawks retooled their star-studded defense this offseason, saying goodbye to a handful of franchise greats, the strength of their team shifted to the other side of the ball. Schottenheimer led the NFL's top-ranked offense with the New York Jets a decade ago. Because you don't ever know when it's your last game. Of the need to balance the play calling so defenses no longer focused exclusively on sacking Wilson. "[He's an] average quarterback".

On Monday night, it was all fixed.

Carroll also took some blame post-game for playcalling in the opening two possessions of the second half that helped force three-and-outs each time. Carson rushed for 24 yards on his six carries, while Penny finally showed a little life but still finished with only 30 rushing yards. He faked a give to running back Jordan Howard, rolled to his left on a bootleg and fired a throw to Anthony Miller.

After the Seahawks scored a touchdown to cut the Chicago Bears' lead to 17-10 in the fourth quarter, the Bears were hit with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the extra point, meaning Seattle would kick off from the 50-yard line. I'm extremely excited about that and we're all happy, but it was extremely frustrating there at the end. "He had to kind of double dip".

"I'm trying to get over just dwelling on plays too much", Trubisky said. This season, outside linebacker Khalil Mack and cornerback Prince Amukamara have pick-sixes of 27 and 49 yards versus the Packers and Seahawks, respectively.
