The Chicago Bears had a pretty relaxing day this past Sunday.  Having secured their victory for the week on Thursday night against the contending Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Bears enjoyed a mini-bye sitting at 4-1.

Not bad.  Here was my post-game reaction Thread the Thursday night win:

With this coming Sunday’s game against the surprising Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, the Bears need to ensure their offense is ready to go.  The defensive test the Panthers administer won’t be nearly as tough as what Indianapolis and Tampa displayed, but the Bears have to get their details right.

As Matt Nagy said on Friday after the win, “Darn it, when you play in this offense, you better be freaking detailed.”

And that was after a win…

With that, I reach into this week’s Bears Mailbag.  Thanks to everyone who submitted questions.  Follow me on Twitter @DhruvKoul to continue the conversation.


The other thing to keep in mind is the Bears also like Lamar Miller.  Miller was signed to the practice squad after Tarik Cohen’s ACL injury knocked him out for the season.  He’s played for Bill Lazor in Miami and also has a relationship with RB coach Charles London, who spoke highly of him on Tuesday.  The likeliest option is the Bears promoting Miller from the practice squad in the coming day(s) or week(s), assuming his knee is healthy.
