Good morning, and as you wake up today, the Bears are still absent in the win column.
However close the Bears were to the upset of the Atlanta Falcons despite a passing game that struggled mightily through the better part of three quarters (and a chunk of the fourth) and a miscommunication leading to a long 88-yard touchdown drive, it was all for naught as the Falcons held off their furious four-down aerial assault.
It’s one of those things where you’d look at a six point loss to the defending NFC champions and probably be willing to take it in pre-season predictions and the like, but watching it in person is a different story.
They get a second chance to go for that first win of the year as they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who had their bye week moved to Week 1 to account for Hurricane Irma bearing down on Florida. Name a player, and it’s probably their #RevengeGame. Mike Glennon, Connor Barth, Chris Conte — no, wait, that was last year. Sadly.
The Navy and Orange still have their work cut out for them, as they return receivers with a grand total of ten targets, seven catches from last week’s game – numbers eclipsed by Mighty Mite Tarik Cohen himself. But hope abounds, as Tanner Gentry has been called up to save the day.
Get your party horns. Let’s do this.
