They Said It

They Said It: Week 4


In the aftermath of the Bears' 16-6 win over the Vikings, here's what writers around the country are saying about the team:

Chicago Tribune
"And it was about an organization that has constructed itself sturdily enough to withstand the ground shaking beneath it, as it did in the season-opening loss to the Packers and again Sunday when the pregame inactives list was publicized 90 minutes before kickoff." -Rich Campbell  |  Read More

CBS Sports
"[Dalvin] Cook came in as one of the NFL's most explosive playmakers of 2019, and Chicago absolutely stood him up, holding him to 35 yards on 14 carries. The Bears also got after Cousins early and often, logging six sacks, limiting Thielen to six yards and just generally owning Sunday with their swagger." -Cody Benjamin  |  Read More

Chicago Sun-Times
"Linebacker Khalil Mack spearheaded another command performance by the Bears' defense and sounded the alarm for the rest of the NFL to take even further notice." -Mark Potash  |  Read More

Pro Football Weekly
"Let's start with this: Roy Robertson-Harris and Eddie Goldman would each be the best interior lineman on most other teams in the NFL, each was outstanding Sunday and almost as importantly there should be no doubt Nick Williams and Abdullah Anderson – Anderson just elevated from the practice squad days ago – both definitely belong on an NFL field somewhere." -Hub Arkush  |  Read More

The Athletic
"The defense hadn't skipped a beat since losing coordinator Vic Fangio, and they didn't again on Sunday without three starters in the front seven, including two of the unit's best players." -Kevin Fishbain  |  Read More

NBC Sports
"[Chase] Daniel's command of the offense and ability to connect on intermediate throws were noticeable in the first half, especially given those two things haven't always been there for [Mitchell] Trubisky in 2019. With a defense playing like the league's best, this offense might not need much more from Daniel. Command extended drives, flip field position and don't turn the ball over." -JJ Stankevitz  |  Read More

"Because the Bears were playing the run so well, the Vikings called more pass plays, and instead of Cook reaching the second level of the defense, the linebackers came to him in pass protection. Cook fell victim to some highlight-reel moves from linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, who filled in for Roquan Smith." -Kalyn Kahler  |  Read More

The Ringer
"With Taylor Gabriel out with a concussion Sunday, [Javon] Wims got the start at receiver for the Bears. He impressed, catching four passes for 56 yards. The second-year pro has an intriguing skill set and plenty of size at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds. There's a chance he goes back to the bench when Gabriel returns, but he may have earned a bigger role with the way he's played in limited action." -Danny Kelly  |  Read More
