Belichick sees “carryover” from Chiefs to Bears offenses

Following a Thursday night game against the Colts, Patriots coach Bill Belichick had extra time to get ready for the Chiefs. Which became extra time to get ready for the Bears, who are coached by former Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy.

“It’s different but there’s certainly some carryover,” Belichick told reporters on Tuesday. “Of course, one of the big differences is the personnel. Yeah, there’s certainly a lot of carryover from Kansas City’s basic stuff.”

Even though the personnel is different, there are similarities in the type of players used by the offense.

“Well, I mean they have a lot of good players,” Belichick said. “They have good skill players, good receivers, big offensive line, good tight end, athletic quarterback, good backs. I mean there’s some movement and some motion and shifting. I wouldn’t say it’s an extraordinary amount. They get the ball to a lot of different people and they’re all pretty effective when they get it. That’ll be a big challenge. They throw the ball down the field and have a lot of catch-and-run plays and have a good running game.”

The Chiefs generally are regarded as having a better offense than the Bears. So facing the Chiefs on Sunday night may be the thing that helps the Patriots be better prepared to face the Bears.

Which may help the Patriots give up fewer than 40 points, which the Chiefs scored against New England. That will be important, because it will be hard for the Patriots to match the 43 points scored against Kansas City’s subpar defense when facing the Bears.

  1. I am not sure people are paying attention here.

    KC’s D held ad grabbed in man all night long. Their D is terrible, mauled NE’s receivers, Brady fumbled and they left a LOT of points on that board due to this.

    NE can absolutely drop 40 if Miami dropped 30 with Osweiler. The logic here is way off, not that they need to drop 40 vs CHicago.

    Remove two blown coverages and that D had a great game and allowing 26 points, not to mention they the D had their balls piined to the wall on that fumble and with the kick off return down to the 2.

    NE is about a week behind schedule, but if you’re winning big games AND know you need to improve….Yikes. Watch out.

  2. .
    We all have a pretty good idea of how Tom Brady will perform on Sunday. We have no idea about Trubisky. There’s the game in a nutshell.
    .

  3. Miami just spanked the Bears….. I’m sure the heat & humidity helped them do that….. Soldier field will allow the Bears some great home field advantage for sure……
    It’s important for the Pats to win as it helps them with the 2nd round draft pick they got from Bears in this years Draft

  4. All the bears have to do is throw to whoever is covered by the McCourty twins or Duron Harmon. Automatic completion. These guys are starting to be a major liability in the patriots defense

  5. Saying the Bears got spanked in Miami is a bit of a stretch , they didn’t look good but they did go to Overtime. The Bears defense looked average at best and the turnovers and play calling were a big part of that debacle. The Patriots are favored and should be. You still don’t know what your gonna get with the Bears. Time will tell.

  6. By the time the weeks out Bill will have the Bears thinking they are the 85 bears just like he got us thinking we were the 72 iDolphins before taking us behind the bike shed for a good beating. You gotta love his Jedi mind tricks.

  7. One of the problems the Pats D had Sunday night was Mahomes’ ability to exit the pocket and throw a strike on the move. The Patriots D did an awful job of keeping hin in the pocket and not rolling the coverage.

    Trubisky can also move in the pocket and make first downs with his feet so Bill will need to gameplan against him. The Bears don’t have much of a run game so Bill will play a dime package and make them run and dink and dunk.

    If Cannon is not back Waddle has a huge assignment in Mack, who will be looking to have a big game. Bill may use different looks, including a two back offense and a quick passing game to take Mack out of the game.

  8. Northern teams struggle in Miami heat and humidity so don’t read too much into the Bears defensive performance against Miami.

  9. Bears defense has been exposed due to the medium range passing game and run game, but their offense is picking up and Trubisky looks like he’s actually starting to improve this won’t be an easy game but not nearly as hard as KC.

  10. If par is average, and being lower than par is better, then isn’t “sub par” better than average?

  11. Bears have been planning for NE for 2 weeks. They thought they could just wing it vs the Dolphins and got caught napping. It was your typical trap game. They will play better vs NE. That they will win but they should put up a fight at least.

    Two games straight of 300+ yards, 3+ TDs from Mitchy Biscuits. I guess ^6ball doesn’t watch much ball…

    What did BB do to Mahomes minus two bad broken plays as gifts and a Brady fumble and STs kick off leading to 14 more points?

    He set the blueprint and there is TONS more film on Trubisky than there was on Mahomes.

    Do the math.

    Blueprint coming.

    LOL!

    That makes no sense. They’re both AFC team. Nagy isn’t intelligent enough or far along enough as a head coach to even think that way.

    The Bears are a rebuilding team and NE is staring down another conf title game appearance.

  14. A few suggestions for Bill & Co.

    No more squib kicks to the middle of the field; make ’em start at their 25 and go from there.
    Ask Tom to get rid of the ball, rather than allowing the D to create fumbles
    Have the Special Teams be more special. No more run backs, ok?
    Have Tom start the game by throwing to the recievers, as opposed to somewhere within 15 yards, that would be good.

    oh, and no injuries, please.

    that’ll do for now

  15. …sorry, forgot to add: ask the DBs, Corners and Safety to break up passes…and, failing that, tackle the receiver if they make the catch.

    Watching the game is for spectators…..and, no, running after people from 10 yards behind is not a workable strategy

    This is true and false.

    They did a FANTASTIC jon in the first half, but all it takes is one extended play to break like on that Hunt play.

    The Hill TD was a man coverage call which was horrible up 7 with 80 yards to go.

    Zone all the way down, generally speaking, keep the play in front of you, and then man i nthe red zone and scheme there.

    That was the mistake.

    Kecle did nothing and Hill and Hunt would have been contained completely withotu those two blown plays.

    That’s all it takes.

    That was not a squib. Gostkowski said he simply messed it up.

  18. Bears after KC 2 tough tests in a row. If the Pats can win this week things will be falling into place nicely

  19. Time to get the road warrior mentality going need to show they can win on the road.the pats are warming up but haven’t played their best yet that’s scary !

  20. Patriots play in an inferior division as well an inferior conference. They got dominated in both road games thus far. While, they are legit at Gilette, their lack of speed on D doesn’t translate well to hostile spots like this. That porous D you saw in the Super Bowl is still here. Belichick can scheme all he wants, but it won’t give Hightower an extra gear to cover the flats.

    I think the bears stop the run (4th in NFL against the run) and then force Brady into 3rd and longs. Like the Bears here, if Trubisky can keep the turnovers below 2.

  21. 4th against the run would be impressive if they had played against teams that could run.The seahawks,cardinals,packers and bucs haven’t been overly impressive running the football.Miami averaged over 5yds with osweiler at qb.They will not stop the Pats.
