They Said It: Week 15


Following the Bears' 24-17 win over the Packers in Week 15 to clinch the NFC North, take a look at what writers around the country are saying about the team:

Chicago Tribune

"What strikes you about this team is the Bears aren't the least bit surprised by their arrival as a postseason threat. There was symmetry in defeating the Packers to start the party because the Bears lost the season opener in Green Bay when the Packers stormed back from a 20-0 deficit in the third quarter. But the Bears aren't surprised by their success just as they weren't surprised last week when they handled the Rams, who entered with the best record in the NFC." Brad Biggs | Read More

Chicago Sun Times

"And it's "lit" because the Bears have Trubisky, who not only is proving to be a resilient quarterback but a young, capable one who can win a Super Bowl this year and beyond. The Bears are on the right path, and that starts with having Trubisky functioning well under Nagy." -Adam Jahns | Read More

Wisconsin State Journal

"Take your pick. Did the Packers fail because quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued to miss open receivers? Because the makeshift offensive line had no chance against elite pass-rushers Khalil Mack and Leonard Floyd? Because the young defensive backs continued to make critical mistakes? Because the special teams remained a comedy of errors?" -Tom Oates | Read More

The Athletic

"The Bears didn't just clinch the NFC North title — a remarkable accomplishment all by itself, following last season's last-place finish. They didn't even just clinch the division at the Packers' expense. They buried the Packers, knocking them out of playoff contention." -Mark Lazerus | Read More

670 The Score

"What was possible is now real. The NFC North belongs to the Bears, and taking it at the immediate expense of the vanquished Packers should be only a taste of what's yet to come." -Dan Bernstein | Read More

NBC Sports Chicago

"Consider what Mitch Trubisky did in Sunday's NFC North-clinching win over the Green Bay Packers a blueprint for what the Bears will need from their quarterback in the playoffs." JJ Stankevitz | Read More

Yahoo! Sports

"It might just be the beginning. The Bears have the pieces to win the division next season, and the season after that, and maybe a couple more after that. This isn't a fluke." Frank Schwab | Read More
