The only way the Chicago Bears are going all the way is if everything, and I mean everything, breaks right for them. I’m talking no injuries, the coaches make all the right decisions, the players all have career years, and the Football Gods shine down and bless the boys in the Navy and Orange. In addition, they need a lot to go wrong for the other 31 teams in the NFL.
The Bears are in year three of a massive rebuild, so if they win eight games I’ll be pleasantly surprised. However, the franchise could be screwed if the rookie quarterback that they traded up for, Mitchell Trubisky, suffers a career-ending injury.
Kelly was supposedly in play for a few jobs last offseason, when the 49ers fired him. He went 2-14 in 2016, his lone year in San Francisco. He was 26-21 in three years leading the Eagles before that, with a playoff appearance in his first year, 2013.
Cal firing Sonny Dykes looked intriguing for Kelly, as well. He Cheap Soccer Jerseys Kids even added that he wasn’t ruling anything out, leading some to believe that meant a return to college was possible.
But those roles were all filled without Kelly being named to one of them. Oregon landed Willie Taggart, LSU hired Matt Canada as its new OC, and Cal went with Wisconsin defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox as its next head man. After the Super Bowl, Kelly was even reported Cheap Team Soccer Jerseys as a likely candidate to replace Kyle Shanahan in Atlanta, who replaced Kelly in San Fran.
Then Brandon Weeden got hurt, Hoyer won a pair of games, throwing for over 600 yards combined, and Cleveland was in this thing. Of course, everybody should have known the Cheap Soccer Jerseys Kids pair of steel-toe boots were on the way from above. During a Thursday night primetime game, Hoyer scrambles and goes down awkwardly. Torn ACL.
Despite winning that night to beat the Buffalo Bills, it has been all downhill for Cleveland since. The Browns have lost two straight, to the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers, and have looked awful.
So bad in fact, that head coach Rob Chudzinski is now contemplating whether to start Weeden or Jason Campbell this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs and their league-leading defense at Arrowhead Stadium, according to ESPN’s Ed Werder.
Chip Kelly: He did a poor job of play-calling when he went for a 60-yard field goal on 4th-and-1 with a timeout remaining. That was a clear lack of confidence in his offense, when he could have run a sneak with a 6-foot-6 quarterback and spiked the ball. He had an awkward half with his personnel and balance on offense. I understand the running game was bad, but he failed to stick with it when the passing game did not work.
The Eagles have a prime rebound game (and potential to finally win a game at home) against the New York Giants in Week 8. The Cowboys have another game on the road against the Detroit Lions in Week 8.
Not that a quarterback ever stands much of a chance when he’s asked to start just a few weeks after he joined the team, but do debuts get any worse than that? Against Cheap Rugby Jerseys UK one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL, a team that was 0-6 and had allowed 14 passing touchdowns in six games, Freeman was terrible. He threw the ball 53 times, had 20 completions and an almost mind-blowing 3.58 yards per attempt.
