Mitchell Trubisky, Bears were historically bad offensively in first half
The Chicago Bears have a major problem on offense.
The Bears were completely inept in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are by no means an elite defense, but they certainly looked like one against the Bears and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears had such a bad half offensively, it ranks as the worst their franchise has had in four decades, with nine total yards of offense.
The Bears had 9 yards of total offense in the first half against the Eagles.

The Bears had significantly more penalty yards than total yards as well, and at one point, with just under three minutes left in the half, they were actually operating in negative yards.
The Bears, late in second quarter:
1 offensive yard
56 penalty yards

The Bears have stuck with Trubisky, but coach Matt Nagy disliked the quarterback’s body language last week. Frankly, at this point, that should be the least of their problems. One has to wonder how long they can stick with Trubisky.
