Rich and Dan break down the matchup against the Lions as the Bears hope to end their four-game losing streak Sunday. Leading off: To bench or not to bench? Quarterback Mitch Trubisky, that is. Would starting backup Chase Daniel help them in the long run? Beyond stabilizing the QB, what does coach Matt Nagy have to do to spark the offense, including getting more out of the void at tight end as well as Tarik Cohen? There are rumblings that a switch on the offensive line is imminent, by the way. In That’s Just Stupid, Rich and Dan come to Trubisky’s defense: They can’t believe his tongue-in-cheek remark about turning off the TVs at Halas Hall ballooned into a nationwide talking point. Next, Dan offers his three keys to Sunday’s game — one of which sounds awfully familiar. They also analyze how to slow down Matthew Stafford and the Detroit passing game. Getting to their predictions, both writers agree on who they think will win — and they foresee the same scoring output for the Bears. Finally, in Crown ‘Em, they get a bit slap happy while reminiscing about Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s praise of Trubisky and receiver Taylor Gabriel. They’ve got clips and everything!
