Mitchell Trubisky: We beat Giants, but we weren’t good enough

Mitchell Trubisky wasn’t pulled in the fourth quarter this week and the Bears posted more than 300 yards of offense for the second time this season, but that doesn’t mean it was all smiles in Chicago’s locker room on Sunday.

A 19-14 win over a terrible Giants team elicited sighs of relief rather than lusty cheers when the quarterback looked back on how things played out. The Bears scored 16 points in the third quarter to overcome two Trubisky interceptions, six punts and a Giants team that missed a pair of field goals.

“We scored more points than them, but it’s not good enough,” Trubisky said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “We’ve got to be better in the red zone, we’ve got to be better on third down, we’ve got to be better on offense. Today we found a way to score more points than them. We’ve got to watch it, get better and quit making mistakes.”

The benefit to playing bad teams is finding a way to win games even when you’re not playing all that well. The Bears did that Sunday and they have a chance to play another bad team when they head to Detroit on Thursday, but a finishing stretch of games against the Cowboys, Packers, Chiefs and Vikings will be tough to navigate as long as they remain the same team they’ve been all year.

  1. I’m in total agreement. We tried to give the Giants the game, but happened to be the least lousy team on the field and came away with the win. Fugly.

  2. 2 missed fg’s by Rosas and a Daniel Jones fumble inside of the Giants 10 yard line that gave the Bears a quick TD….Mitch is right. The Bears should have lost that game.

    Change that “WE” to an “I” Bub!

    =================================

    Agreed. It is a team sport and there is muched to blame, including the coaching.

    When I see QBs struggling mighty, I cringe at about what they say. While Trubisky is a Northern Ohio native, I think it would show more leadership if he said “I” and then do something about immediately.

  4. Yes Mitch has played badly. The offense as a whole makes too many mistakes but once again, the defense gave up a long TD drive to make this a close game. Last year, they were making plays and getting stops more. The entire team has regressed.

  5. The thought of the Lions and the Bears as the only early game on Thanksgiving is shear torture…..just terrible teams. I may not be able to eat after watching the debacle.

    You’re looking at it one sided. Braunecker dropped a guaranteed TD pass and a couple of phantom flags cost the Bears dearly. Given that the Bears barely won against one of the worst teams in the league.

  7. You don’t like the early game then don’t watch it. The game will survive without you, watch the parade instead.

  8. The Bears have a host of problems and have done very little right all year, but the Lions are banged up beyond belief. The short week notwithstanding this may be the Bears most winnable game of the year.
