In their last game of the preseason, the Chicago Bears took on the Cleveland Browns. We take a look at some takeaways from the game.
Well, that’s it. The Chicago Bears took on the Cleveland Browns in their final game of the preseason. The players did all they could to win a starting job or just win a job. Now it’s all in the coaching staff’s hands. They decide the depth chart and who’s in or who’s out. All teams have to get down to the final 53-man roster by Saturday.
Thursday’s game was the last shot the players had to make an impression. By the look of what happened in the game, I hope the coaches had a pretty good idea going into the game because not many players showed anything in a 25-0 loss. But as with the other three games, the final score doesn’t really matter.
Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky got the start for the Bears. He was there just to stay warm, however, as the coaches didn’t have him drop back. He attempted just two passes in the first quarter and two more in the second. After Connor Shaw went down in the fourth, he had to come back in, and he threw a pass. He finished 2-for-5 for 10 yards.
As I wrote earlier, the Bears will bend over backward to make sure Mike Glennon, the guy they picked up in free agency, looked good. Trubisky wasn’t going to have another good throwing game that put pressure on Glennon, head coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains. His job was mainly to turn around and give the running back the ball.
Now that the games are out of the way, we can wait to see how the roster looks. There will be some cuts (probably some surprises) and additions. Do you know what else that means? It means the regular season arrives next week.
Here is the good, the bad, and the ugly that came from the last preseason game.
