Behold Da Bearz!

I don't understand why they just don't sign Forbath.  It almost seems like they're intentionally botching their kicking situation.  But then again, I probably wouldn't want to sign there either, considering how Nagy just seems to be so intense on the kicking situation that he's almost doomed anyone who gets the job.  

we can certainly criticize Zimmer for how he's handled the kicking job, but Nagy may be even worse at it.

Bears offensive tackle T.J. Clemmings will miss the season with a quadriceps injury, coach Matt Nagy announced Monday. Clemmings injured his leg in the team’s preseason game against the Colts.

The Vikings made Clemmings a fourth-round pick in 2015, and he started all 16 games at right tackle during his rookie season after Phil Loadholt tore his Achilles. He moved to the left side and started 14 games in place of an injured Matt Kalil the next season but failed to make the team in 2017. Clemmings spent that year with Washington and appeared in four games for the Raiders last year before landing on injured reserve with a knee injury.

The Bears are built to win now. If Trubisky doesn't take another step this year, they're in trouble.

Brett Kollmann here shows how some of the problems with the Bears offense in the season opener can be blamed on Trubisky:

Their defense is still really good. 

In theory, if Nagy gets back to basics, Trubisky can game manage them to a winning record. 

But they have a tough game this week: Denver hardly ever lose at home early in the season, and Fangio is going to have a big advantage in game planning. 

Weird to say this so early, but the season's basically on the line for the Bears already, tomorrow in Denver. Starting 0-2 would just about kill their playoff chances already. They'd have to finish 10-4 for the balance of schedule to have a chance.

And their schedule is brutal: still have all 3 road division games remaining, plus home games vs the Chargers, Saints, Chiefs, Vikings and Cowboys, and road games vs the Eagles and Rams. Very tough to run that gauntlet dropping only 4 games if they can't beat GB at home and DEN on the road.
