Former Saints backup QB Chase Daniel starting for Bears

Former Saints backup QB Chase Daniel starting for Bears

They have split the season series two of the past three years.

Bears quarterback Daniel impressed in his third career start and his first in almost four years, and earned high praise from opposing coach Matt Patricia: "He knows that offense really well".

"It wasn't intentional", Nagy said.

Daniel hasn't started or played extensively in an National Football League game since 2014, and might start for Trubisky because of a right shoulder injury sustained in the fourth quarter of Sunday night's 25-20 Bears victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

Entering the fourth quarter up 13-7 on the Panthers, the Lions allowed Caroling to score on a Cam Newton touchdown pass but then they would answer right back with a Stafford touchdown pass of his own with just over five minutes remaining. This also makes it more likely I pay up at quarterback for the Thanksgiving slate given the lack of quality options.

"You get the same thing every week".

Daniel rebounded from a slow start offensively and got the Bears back on track. The run game - on both sides of the ball - has been a big reason for the recent struggles.

The play set up a Bears field goal to give Chicago its first points.

"Our guys, once we knew it, we prepped them on what our game plan is as far as making sure they're mentally and physically strong and how they have to treat it", Nagy said.

We can't fault Nagy for not wanting to tip his hand, but here's the "other comment" that I believe tells us everything we need to know.

McCarthy said earlier in the week Graham would try different kinds of splints and protections for the thumb in an attempt to play Sunday night against the Minnesota Vikings. For many, residing in second place on the depth chart is often a source of frustration. It has put his status for Thursday's game with the Lions jeopardy, and has Chase Daniel preparing for his first start as a member of the Bears.

More than that, right now Trubisky is the franchise, and a more serious injury to his throwing shoulder could undo most or all of what the Bears have accomplished in their great start to Nagy's inaugural campaign. "It's about opportunities. I felt really good about the opportunity here with coach Nagy to go back up Mitch, to help groom him along".

"He got banged up a little bit and there was a lot of instances where (the Chiefs) were playing some defensive structures where they basically were daring you to throw it", the coach said on a conference call. "I feel like I do that pretty well".
