Club Dub Goes to Washington, Mack Goes Off, Mitch Gets Some Love, and Other Bears Bullets

Chicago Bears

The Bears offense found a rhythm, the defense owned Case Keenum’s soul for most of the night, and the victory belonged to Chicago’s football team on Monday Night Football. And they say it’s hard to get anything done in Washington D.C. these days.

  • As expected, Club Dub was lit on a Monday in our nation’s capital:

  • You want entry into Club Dub? Get in line! Did you help a defense come up with five takeaways, nine quarterback hits, 6.5 tackles-for-loss, and four sacks? If so, come on in!
  • The Ha Ha Clinton-Dix revenge game was flippin’ sweet:

  • A reenactment of what the Bears defense did last night:

  • Anybody hungry?

  • Did you aid in the Bears offense scoring 21 points in the second quarter? You did? Well, then come on in.  Because, hey, the offense scored some points, too:

  • Is the best offense the Bears defense or is it passes to Taylor Gabriel? Sounds like a worthwhile poll question.
  • Seriously, what is this sorcery?

  • Mitch Trubisky himself has often talked about being a rhythm player, which is why I appreciate that Bears Head Coach Nagy schemed some early throws that were easy. Create confidence, build a lather, and let QB1 play some back-yard football on the move, outside the pocket, and vertically down the field. It wasn’t perfect on Monday night, but a 25-for-31 night that went for 231 yards, 3 touchdowns, and a 116.5 passer rating was a step in the right direction.
  • Team efforts like the one the Bears put together on Monday Night Football in their dismantling of Washington gives me life. A raucous defense took Case Keenum’s milk money, an opportunistic offense cashed in with some touchdowns, and Chicago picked up its second consecutive road win.
  • And kudos to the Bears fans who showed up in our nation’s capital to make it feel like a home game. Nothing like hearing “Let’s Go Bears!” chants drown out the annoyed murmurs of fans cheering for the home team.

  • You can’t, under any circumstance, diss that pass. Even Pro Football Focus gave it positive remarks in its post-game write-up, calling it his best pass of the year and “earned a high mark” for the score. Lo siento. Can’t do it. Sorry.
  • Sexy Rexy reference:

  • We got a taste of David Montgomery on MNF. And while the carries came later than I wanted, the old adage of “better late than never” is applicable here. Montgomery averaged 5.2 yards per carry as he did his part in icing the game away. PFF’s Scott Barrett notes that Montgomery has been one of the five most difficult runners to bring down on first contact so far this season. Keep giving that guy the ball.
  • Some love from some all-time basketball greats:

  • The Bears’ “Tug of War” celebration after Ha Ha Clinton-Dix’s pick-six has been nominated for the best of the week. Don’t forget to vote. And if you let the Packers’ bad baseball slide win, there will be hell to pay.
  • An explanation as to why starting right tackle Bobby Massie did not play on Sunday:

  • SOON:
