Before he reached the line of scrimmage he handed it off to tight end Zach Miller going the opposite way.
That now finds Minnesota 3-2 in the fifth week of the 2017-2018 season.
“He gives us a chance to win”, said one member of the offense, leaving unsaid the unfortunate reality that Mike Glennon had reached the point where he didn’t. “When we got to the point where we didn’t feel like he could protect himself, we took him out of the game”.
Bradford looked uncomfortable from the opening play and was limping noticeably by the time he gave way to Keenum. I did the same thing I did the previous four weeks. “I think everybody felt it”.
Bradford played Monday night for the first time since Week 1.
The didn’t cross into Bears territory until there were less than 5 minutes before half, and another Floyd sack knocked them back. The party then hit a lull as Trubisky struggled, missing connection after connection.
It looked as if Trubisky would lead the first touchdown drive of his career when on the second play of the second quarter Jordan Howard broke a 42-yard run down the sidelines for the touchdown. Then, like cops getting called to a block party, the mood was quickly wiped away by the interception.
Meaning: Much more (or less) was happening on offense than the Mitch Trubisky Experience.
“When we can run the football, it makes it tough”, Zimmer said. We practiced on turf two days this week, too, so that’s even a bit harder on your legs. Trubisky has the talent to win games, but he needs support from his teammates. Too many pre-snap penalties. “I’m excited for his future because he’s a baller”. He connected on 12 of 25 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown. Trubisky looks to nab his first National Football League win on Sunday at the Baltimore Ravens. “The question is, how do we come up with that evaluation?” “It just makes playing with these guys so much better”. Murray has taken up the role that Matt Asiata played last season, which is to just plow blindly into the line and seemingly run toward contact. Trubisky attempted six passes traveling 15-plus yards downfield on Monday, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The rookie received rave reviews from his locker room, despite the loss. “His preparation is obvious”.
“He was calm, he was cool”, receiver Kendall Wright said.
Trubisky wowed a thunderous crowd at times with his quickness and arm strength, only to throw an interception that sent the Bears to a 20-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night. His only highlight was a wacky touchdown in which Andrew Sendejo tipped the ball up in the air and Miller came down with it in the end zone. Trubisky, the No. 2 overall selection in this year’s draft, did some very good things, although several were negated by the Bears’ all-around dreadfulness. “Space that was wide open”, Miller said.
I’ll ask Theo Epstein to plug the rookie QB into their Ivy database and see what predictions comes out – I’m not really sure how computers work – but it sounds right to me.
