Post-Pompeii: Matt Eberfels shows where he is exceptional as the Bears Cooper Patriots

Matt Eberflus made excellent use of the 11 days between the Thursday night game and the Monday night game. It’s starting to seem like Eberflus is rare in that it’s a junior head coach who understands his responsibilities like a veteran. His lack of head coaching experience was nowhere to be seen in the Bears’ 33-14 win over the Patriots.

This is what sets him apart: control what he can control. Among the things he has controlled well is preparing, planning and learning about his team’s potential and their limits.

Here are my other post-play points:

• Peyton Manning He wanted the Bears to try to score another landing at the end of the game. By getting Justin Fields to take his knee, Eberfloss did the right thing by prioritizing sportsmanship and respect.

• It was a really well-designed game plan from offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, and the call to play was money all night.

• The crime of bears seemed somewhat similar to the crime of crows in terms of what they tried to do and what they accomplished. Given some of the similarities in individuals, crows provide a logical blueprint for bears.

• Perhaps the bears’ best defense is their attack. Edge acquisition time is about 14 minutes? This is impressive. No Patriots player in attack has done more than look great.

• That was the height of Justin Fields, at least for now. He went through his advances better than before and made mostly logical decisions.


• Fields ran dynamically, as he has done over and over again this season. But he also ran responsibly, which he didn’t always do.

• Drills designed for the fields will become less effective as defenses plan for them – unless the Bears become more versatile and effective in a passing game.

• Handling the ball on the fields remains a problem. The box’s score indicates that he had four moves against the Patriots, and his 11 moves tied him up at the top of the league. Not much of it was made because the bears retraced ten of those moves. This is more fortunate than can be explained. For example, his 2021 project colleague Trevor Lawrence has lost all four of his failures. If Fields keeps putting the ball on the ground, it will cost the Bears wins.

Fields deserve credit for the win, but not at the expense of the big players on either side of the ball. The win was as much because of them as it was because of anyone else.

• Offensive man Sam Mustipher will not go. And the bears should be thankful for that. Every NFL team needs Sam Mustiphers.

• Bears general manager Ryan Pauls will take the bow today to Keeler Gordon and Jacoan Brisker. He must take another player for Dante Pettis, a player he signed into the third wave of free agency, to make a deal and contribute in various ways.

• The Three Bears interceptions were by-products of passing dash, scoring and running defense.

• Roquan Smith does not have an agent, but if he does, the agent will undoubtedly bring up the linebacker’s performance on Monday (12 offenses, sacks and interceptions) when negotiating Smith’s next contract.

• If the Bears thought it was hard to stop Matthew Goodon from a Patriots fight (it certainly was), wait until they get a load of Micah Parsons, whom they will be opposing on Sunday in Dallas.

• With the NFL’s trading deadline approaching one week later, the Poles need to approach the Bears’ win discreetly. Becoming a buyer would be a mistake unless the bears could get a long-term player. Standing is usually the best way.

• It was a game worth savoring and remembering, the Bears’ best victory of the season so far. But in the end, nothing more than the Bears’ worst loss of the season so far should be read in Green Bay. Both games have equal weight in standings.
