They Said It: Week 16


Following the Bears' 14-9 win over the 49ers in Week 16, take a look at what writers around the country are saying about the team:

NBC Sports Chicago
"Perhaps the best thing that can be said about the Bears' 14-9 win over the San Francisco 49ers Sunday at Levi's Stadium is this: The Bears, again, proved they're a team that knows how to win in nearly any given set of circumstances." -JJ Stankevitz | Read More

Chicago Tribune
"Nothing fancy. Nothing extraordinary. Just victory No. 11, the Bears' eighth in the last nine games and the perfect teaching tape for Matt Nagy to reinforce as the playoffs close in." -Dan Wiederer | Read More

670 The Score
"To change the culture by doing things differently. To take high risks that produce high rewards. To put the Bears in the best position to win the Super Bowl.To have fun along the way while the rest of us chuckle at his aggressive, unorthodox approach.As long as it works, nobody minds Nagy's boldness – and it keeps working." - David Haugh | Read More

The Athletic
"It's the second time in three weeks the Bears have held a team without a touchdown. The Bears don't need to pray when they have a defense that saves more than a thousand missionaries." -Jon Greenberg | Read More

Chicago Tribune
"Nowhere in the NFL's 89-page rule book does it state the Bears defense must intercept a pass during a game. But at some point this championship season, it became law." -Rich Campbell | Read More

Pro Football Weekly
"But the Bears did a better job of finding a way to win against an opponent that had an inferior record but had won two straight and played well at home all season. It wasn't a work of art, but no one was complaining after the music died down from another Club Dub celebration dance party." -Bob LeGere | Read More

Chicago Sun Times
"Not everything has to be beautiful, and the Bears' 14-9 dismissal of the pesky San Francisco 49ers on Sunday certainly proved that point.You know what is beautiful, though? The 11-4 record. The Bears have that going for them. It's the very good news coming out of an afternoon that can only be described as meh." -Rick Morrissey | Read More
