#1 Matt Nagy read off the numbers almost like the winning lo von panxing18 23.11.2018 07:10

ttery ticket: 12-80-10.The Chicago Bears coach is hoping the offense can strike it rich this season with the additions of receiver Allen Robinson (No. 12) and tight end Trey Burton (No. 8) Youth Taylor Gabriel Jersey , to pair with young quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (No. 10).Throughout camp, the trio has steadily honed their chemistry. That was evident Thursday when the team had a joint practice against the Denver Broncos."The one thing I've really seen is 12 and 80, both their timing is starting to click with 10 ," said Nagy, whose team faces the Broncos on Saturday in a preseason contest.Robinson is rounding back into form after tearing his ACL in the opener last season while with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He signed a three-year, $42 million free agent deal with the Bears to become Trubisky's top target.Then there's Burton, a member of the Philadelphia Eagles last season who may be best remembered for throwing a 1-yard TD pass to quarterback Nick Foles during a Super Bowl win over New England.Burton rattled off numerous reasons why he signed with Chicago ó the offense, the coach, the city and of course No. 10."A young quarterback who everybody says nothing but great things about," Burton said.The second-overall pick in 2017, Trubisky threw for 2,193 yards, seven TDs and seven interceptions his rookie season. With Nagy running the show, the Bears figure to take more shots down the field.That's extremely enticing to Trubisky, whose team ranked at the bottom of the league in yards passing per game in 2017."We're going to keep being aggressive," Trubisky said. "The key is to be consistent with them, hit them. It really stretches the field, and it opens up the run game, opens up the intermediate throws as well. We're going to continue to be aggressive, which I love."Asked what he does best on the field, Trubisky didn't blink: "That's too generic."He quickly pondered."What do I think I do best? I don't know. I love football," he responded. "I love coming out here with my teammates and doing the best I possibly can. I wouldn't say there's really one (way) how I would categorize my game. I want to continue to get better every day and try to be great."Maybe a little surprising is how fast Trubisky has gotten in sync with Robinson and Burton."It speaks to the type of guys they are, their knowledge of the game and their work ethic, as well as mine," Trubisky said. "We've been getting on the same page, repping over and over again and really developing that trust and chemistry on and off the field so I know where they're going to be. They do a good job getting open. We've really been clicking."Robinson is slated to see some action for the Bears on Saturday. Trubisky and the first-team offense gained minus-1 yards on eight plays last week at Cincinnati.Obviously, Nagy wants to see more."You want to score touchdowns. You want to be able to put points on the board," Nagy said. "I want to see some first downs. I want to see a balance of run and pass. I want to see solid protection. If you have protection and give that quarterback green grass, they'll produce."Nagy liked what he saw out of Trubisky after two days of facing a Broncos defense featuring the disruptive Von Miller."Arrow up," Nagy said. "It was two good days and that's what his expectations are and that's what he knows we want."He does at that."Every snap matters. Every practice rep, every preseason game matters," Trubisky said. "We're coming out here competing every day. We're always trying to get better. No matter what it is, if it's on the practice field http://www.bearscheapstores.com/kyle-long-jersey-cheap , if I'm in the backyard by myself or if it's a preseason game, we're trying to get better and we're trying to move the football."That's what great players do. That's what great teams do. We're trying to get some momentum."Five Questions with Field Gulls: Khalil Mack is going to dominate After recovering from tough losses, the Bears and Seahawks will try to earn the first win of their respective seasons in a Monday Night Football showdown. To get the lowdown on this squad, I reached out to Kenneth Arthur, Editor of SB Nationís Field Gulls for five questions. Windy City Gridiron: 1. Doug Baldwin suffered an injury in Sundayís loss to the Broncos. Whatís his status and assuming heís not able to go Monday night, what does that do to the rest of the receiver group?Field Gulls: Baldwin missed all of preseason with an injury to his left knee and then suffered a sprained MCL in his right knee on Sunday. Aaron Rodgers suffered a sprained MCL on Sunday night and returned to the game to beat the Bears. Not that all sprained MCLs are the same, but pointing out that certain sprained MCLs donít even cost you a game. Dontía Hightower sprained his MCL last Week 1 and missed two games. Kevin Johnson suffered a sprained MCL in Week 2 and missed a few games. At the time Iím answering this question, all I can say is ďI donít know.Ē Maybe weíll know more closer to game time, but Iíd expect the team to maybe rest him.That puts more targets on Brandon Marshall, who played well in his Seahawks debut and looks closer to his usual self than he did last year with the Giants. Jaron Brown, Tyler Lockett, and David Moore make out the rest of the group, and I have more confidence in the depth there than I have in years. If Baldwin had to miss an extended period of time, they might call up Keenan Reynolds from the practice squad, a guy who has drawn many Baldwin comps.WCG: 2. In recent years, the Seahawks offensive line has been one of the worst groups in the league, which has limited the run game and forced Russell Wilson to do Russell Wilson things. Has that unit improved and if so, how does that shape what the Seahawks can do this season?FG: Well, I would say it was mostly the pass blocking that was an issue up until last year. Then it was certainly run blocking too, but Chris Carson was successful behind the same o-line as Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls. Those running backs deserve plenty of blame for the awful results on the ground. But yes, the unit has improved.One, they started last year with Rees Odhiambo at left tackle and ended it with Duane Brown. They have a legitimate left tackle. Justin Britt is a solid starting center. The rest of the unit is still question marks and they were forced to start J.R. Sweezy at right guard after planning all summer to put D.J. Fluker there, but he hurt his hamstring during the third preseason game. Continuity be damned.Two, Germain Ifedi will contain Khalil Mack. Call me a homer, whatever, I donít care. Ifedi will have no issues with Mack or anyone else the Bears throw at him. Just kidding, Ifedi is going to have his entire family history erased by Mack. We might as well start editing the ďIn MemoriamĒ for Russell Wilson to play at halftime. I trust Brown on the left side, but Chicagoís gonna have its way with the right side and perhaps the most successful plays by Ifedi will be the ones he gets a holding penalty on. At least if Wilson survives those ones.Editorís note: He totally got me there. I thought ďthis man is crazy - Ifedi vs. Mack and heís not worried?!ĒWCG: 3. The Seahawks surprised some people by taking Rashad Penny in the first round of this yearís draft, and itís hard to not want to draw comparisons with Marshawn Lynch. How has Penny looked and are the Seahawks truly going to run a split backfield with Chris Carson and Penny or are they waiting for Penny to take over?FG: Hmmm, yeah. There are some similarities in height, weight, 40-time, and broken/missed tackles. Iíd say Lynch was still a considerably better and more athletic prospect and I wouldnít expect Penny to become Lynch. I think Chris Carson is going to be a better running back than Penny http://www.bearscheapstores.com/pat-o_donnell-jersey-cheap , but thatís also kind of a ridiculous statement; weíve seen five games from Carson and one from Penny. But between the two, I think Carson is better. Heís a better runner and a much better pass blocker. The Seahawks split snaps on Sunday and I really hope they donít do that again. Just give the ball to Carson. Pennyís time could come -- and it should -- but Carson gives them a better chance right now and I think Pennyís weaknesses showed in the loss at Denver. Maybe not though, itís only one game. I do think Carson could be a Pro Bowl back if they give him enough time to do so.Both players should be in the offensive gameplan for 2018, 2019, and 2020. I donít know what happened to C.J. Prosise, they didnít use him at all.WCG: 4. Earl Thomas ended his hold out and played in the season opener. Given the major changes on the defense in recent years, Thomas is in some sense the last vestige of the great Seahawks defenses. What is his future with Seattle and are the fans prepared for life after Earl? Are there stars-in-waiting?FG: I think this could be Earlís last season with the Seahawks. After the game he said that heís willing to return to the team next year but also said things that make him seem bitter that it came to this. But itís not just about Earl leaving, I also think Seattle is hesitant to commit to him beyond 2018 and thereís a few reasons for that:- Earl probably wants a raise, more like $12 million+ a year, setting a safety contract record. The Seahawks just made Kam Chancellor one of the highest-paid safeties in the NFL and heíll never play a down on that contract. In general, safeties are getting paid less while other positions set new high bars. Eric Reid is a free agent. George Iloka cost $1 million. The two sides might be way far apart on money.- Earl is going to be 30 and the team may be focused on getting younger.- Seattle has poured some other resources in at safety (Bradley McDougald, Tedric Thompson, Delano Hill) and may be willing to test that out, but make no mistake: Earl missed 10 snaps against the Broncos and the defense was awful. His holdout, if it had lasted into the season, could have been disastrous for the Seahawks. I think fans are prepared though. Most of them were willing to trade Earl for a second round pick, when polled. I think many would accept a third rounder. After his Week 1 game though, Iím sure many of them have changed their minds.WCG: 5. Pete Carroll is no spring chicken and the Seahawks seem to be stuck between competing and rebuilding. What is Carrollís future in Seattle and if the end is near, what are you most looking for in a replacement?FG: I really donít know what to say. I think Carroll plans to coach in 2019, at least. Beyond that, I try not to think about things. I donít think NFL teams can plan a future beyond two seasons. Not that you donít sign players for six years or whatever, Iím not saying that, but so much will change in two years. So much. The Eagles went from Chip Kelly to Super Bowl champions in two years. Jim Harbaugh went from three straight NFC Championship games to Michigan in two years. I have no idea and I wouldnít even know how to begin thinking about the franchise after Carroll, itís been entirely his identity since 2010. I donít see any obvious replacement on the staff right now.WCG: Bonus: My experience in the Pacific Northwest is to try and score as much smoked salmon as possible because itís delicious and canít be beat out there, but for Seattle specifically, what are the strengthís of the local food scene and whatís a must have for anyone traveling out that way?FG: I havenít lived in Seattle in 10 years, so I had to ask some of my writers.John Fraley: Of course you can get just about every type of food in Seattle ó such a cosmopolitan city, such a destination for the entire Pacific Rim. And the Asian cuisines are endless. But what Iíve found is most consistently satisfying around here: Indian food. The curry options are neverending, the spices are fresh-tasting even the thousandth time. It would be exceedingly hard to go wrong with any Indian dish. Donít get the bbq, unless itís Korean.Sean Clement: Palisade Restaurant in North Seattle is my favorite. Itís a little spendy but you can eat looking out over the water and get some excellent food. If theyíre in Tacoma the Korean and Vietnamese food is amazing.Thank you to Kenneth and Field Gulls!
