Near the end of September Bryce Callahan Jersey , new Bears coach Matt Nagy said it would take time for his new players to get up to speed with a new offense. It’s the middle of November, and Nagy surely likes what he sees.Led by quarterback Mitch Trubisky, the offense is gaining confidence and, in turn, getting better. Trubisky addressed the performance of the offense with PFT by phone after Sunday’s win over the Lions.Trubisky said that the improvement from 3-3 to 6-3 flows from the level of belief in the locker room, and from the fact that the players believe in the process and each other.“We’re growing as an offense and as a whole team Authentic Charles Leno Jersey ,” Trubisky said. “It’s about being not complacent.”Earlier this year, Nagy said the playbook was limited by the inexperience of the players, particularly Trubisky. Nine games in, that’s not the case.“We’re a lot farther along in the playbook,” Trubisky said, “and we’re using all of our weapons.”Trubisky continues to push himself to get better Youth Akiem Hicks Jersey , constantly criticizing his own game. He said that he has worked on being more consistent with his eyes and footwork in the pocket, and that he’ll continue to look for weaknesses that he can address.His self-critiques happen without paying attention to external critiques. Asked about the harsh assessment of his play from former NFL executive Mike Lombardi, Trubisky initially said, “I’m not sure who that is.” Trubisky then said that he liked the fact that his teammates came to his defense.Defense has been the identify of the Bears for years. With Trubisky, the Bears could be on the verge of an offensive renaissance the like of which they haven’t seen since the days of Sid Luckman. There will be plenty of errors for the Patriots to look at when they study the film of Sunday’s game against the Bears, but they can take some comfort from the fact that they aren’t licking their wounds after a loss.The Patriots overcame three turnovers and a last gasp throw from Mitchell Trubisky to Kevin White to leave Chicago with a 38-31 win. Trubisky uncorked a ball from near midfield to White http://www.bearsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kyle-long-jersey , who caught it just short of the end zone and wound up being stopped of a touchdown.Chicago’s last chance came after the Patriots chose to punt on 4th-and-6 from the Bears’ 33-yard-line with 30 seconds left. Ryan Allen‘s punt went into the end zone and three completions put the Bears in position to try for a miracle. It wasn’t to be and a pair of interceptions by Trubisky earlier in the second half loom even larger given how close the Bears came to catching up to the Patriots.Tom Brady threw an interception as well — he’s up to seven on the season — and the Patriots lost two fumbles to help the Bears grab a 17-7 lead in the first half. New England was back in the lead by halftime as Cordarrelle Patterson returned a kickoff for a touchdown and James White scored the first of his two touchdowns on the day. They’d add another special teams score when Dont'a Hightower blocked a punt that Kyle Van Noy returned for a touchdown and their play in that phase of the game was essential to the fifth Patriots win of the season.The Patriots will get an extra day to prepare for the Bills next Monday night and part of that process is going to include figuring out whether they’ll have running back Sony Michel. Michel left with a knee injury in the first half and it looked like the kind of injury that could keep him out for a while.Tight end Rob Gronkowski‘s condition will also be a hot topic after he missed Sunday’s game due to a reappearance of the back problems that have plagued him throughout his career. That absence didn’t stop the Patriots from winning on Sunday and Josh Gordon had his first 100-yard day as a Patriot, but they’d surely prefer to have his help in the coming weeks.
