Another crushing loss in a game they should have won. "We know that he's still teaching those guys and we still out on the field playing for one another".
The Bears (3-3) played sloppy in all three phases of their game. "Just got to stay focused and control what I can control". White caught eight passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns.
The Pats fumbled twice, gifting the Bears two short fields and, eventually, 14 points. Waddle handled Mack a year ago, limiting him to two pressures in a 33-8 New England win over Oakland.
Kenjon Barner is likely the top between-the-tackles option going forward. And for a few games, it felt that way. "Long time coming", he said. "We just got to get better and accept the challenge". "He knows that. We know that". Just kind of happened that way. "I went up to grab it". He ended up with it, so it was a great play for him, definitely.
Wide receiver Allen Robinson had a career-low grade as well at 44.9 overall.
Josh Bellamy even had been more involved in the passing game prior to Sunday than White was. Let's take a look at the impact from that perspective if the Patriots rookie is forced to miss any time. But those four - including three deep shots, one of which was picked - resulted in zero catches. You can not give Tom Brady two touchdowns on special teams and expect to win. Wouldn't a red-zone role help justify his spot on the roster? Trubisky? The Bears quarterback ran buck-wild all over the Patriots defense on Sunday, and perhaps Belichick was ultimately OK with it. Trubisky wasn't able to burn the Patriots too badly through the air, but did rush for 81 yards with a touchdown on just six carries. On the season, they're tied for 10th in red-zone efficiency, so you can't say it's a team weakness. Trubisky hit Trey Burton for 17 yards on fourth-and-4 to keep the drive alive.
Following their meltdown in Miami last week, the Bears embraced the chance to bounce back against a team like the Patriots. That's what appeared to chafe White the most after the game. Maybe Nagy wanted to pump up a self-critical player or perhaps he wanted to call out the mistakes of the rest of his team, including a running game he said was insufficient Sunday. "Super tough loss. We didn't play the way we wanted to play".
"My legs just got taken out from under me", Braunecker said.
