They Said It: Week 9


Following the Bears' 41-9 win over the Bills in Week 9, take a look at what writers around the country are saying about the team:

Daily Herald
"The conversation should be entirely about the Super Bowl as the Bears enter the second half of the season atop their division."
-Barry Rozner | Read More

Chicago Tribune
"Fuller was aggressive attacking the catch point against a putrid Bills offense led by quarterback Nathan Peterman, whose prolific career interception rate dropped to 9.2 with three picks on 49 passes.

"That's Fuller at his best. Aggressive with eyes on the quarterback, letting his competitiveness prop up his athleticism. And when a player improves within a team's program, as Fuller has, the lift is undeniable. That's how it's supposed to work for a former first-round draft pick."

The Athletic
"Two games in a row, the defense has manhandled an inferior opponent. Bills running back LeSean McCoy had 10 yards on 10 carries and that forced Peterman to throw it 49 times. Needless to say, the Bears were ready."
-Kevin Fishbain | Read More

Pro Football Focus
"The pace of play was entirely dictated by the Bears' front seven. Linebackers Roquan Smith and Danny Trevathan did a tremendous job preventing the Bills' offense from making anything happen up the middle with a combined 25 tackles on the day."

Chicago Sun Times
"The Bears believe they're in the process of becoming one of the NFL's top teams, and if that's the case, then Sunday served a purpose beyond mere annihilation. It taught them about stamping their superiority over a surrendering army."
-Rick Morrissey | Read More

Chicago Tribune
"It's not a surprise anymore. Or at least it shouldn't be. The Bears proved they can beat bad teams the way good teams are supposed to. They did it to the Jets a week earlier. Then they did it to the Bills on Sunday. This is growth."
-Steve Rosenbloom | Read More

"The Bears (5-3) are true playoff contenders just over the midway point of the season for the first time since 2013 after back-to-back wins over the struggling New York Jets and Buffalo Bills."
-Jeff Dickerson | Read More

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle
"The losing streak reached four games Sunday afternoon as Buffalo fell behind 28-0 in the first half and ultimately lost 41-9 to the Chicago Bears, who are not exactly a reincarnation of the '85 Bears, but were made to look so by the Bills."
