They Said It: Week 12


Following the Bears' 23-16 win over the Lions in Week 12, take a look at what writers around the country are saying about the team:

Chicago Tribune
"By the time he jogged back into the tunnel, [Chase] Daniel had added his name to the Bears' growing list of successes. His entry simply reinforced a feeling that has become impossible to ignore: Something special is happening with this team." -Rich Campbell | Read More

Chicago Sun Times
"These are the 2018 Bears, and if there's anything in the world that bothers them, it has yet to present itself. To say that everything went their way in a 23-16 victory Thursday against the Lions is mostly true but also unfair. It implies that fate was with them when, in fact, it was backup quarterback Chase Daniel who was with them. And safety Eddie Jackson. And cornerback Kyle Fuller." -Rick Morrissey | Read More

670 The Score
"How far can the Bears go? These challenging last two weeks revealed that Chicago has something potentially special in the works." -Chris Emma | Read More

The Athletic
"But this is the new normal. [Matt]Nagy's boys don't quit — shout-out to Ricky Renteria — and Jackson is turning into the league's best playmaking safety." -Kevin Fishbain | Read More
"Should [Mitchell] Trubisky's right shoulder injury keep him out of Week 13's game against the New York Giants, the Bears are in a good place if Daniel needs to start again." -Herbie Teope | Read More

Pro Football Focus
"You just can't keep Eddie Jackson out of the headlines. He's playing as well as any safety in the league right now and emphasizing that with a knack for making big plays that define games." -PFF Analysis Team | Read More

Yahoo! Sports
"And while it's not fair to compare this team to the Super Bowl shuffling unit of the '85 Bears, this group led by Khalil Mack is making a name for itself." -Jason Owens | Read More

Detroit News
"Matthew Stafford, in his 10th season as a starter, couldn't do it. Bears backup Chase Daniel, making the third start of his nine-year career, could." -Bob Wojnowski | Read More
