Courtesy of Has writer Adam Jahns and the people at STATS: At 2-0, the particular Bears couldn’t have asked for a better start under new coach Marc Trestman. But the Bears would have liked better starts — and much more consistency — in those 2 wins.
One distinction between the Bears and other undefeated teams such as the Patriots, Chiefs and Broncos is that they’ve played catch up much more. The Bengals and Vikings each had leads in the fourth one fourth against the Bears.
It makes for great heroics and makes getting 2-0 pretty impressive, but getting behind and having to rally in the fourth quarter is a position that will Bears would prefer not to be in.

The Has offense is still evolving under coach Marc Trestman, but that won’t stop him from bemoaning several big-play opportunities that have been missed in their first two games.
The Bears’ longest plays for the purpose of scrimmages are quarterback Jay Cutler’s 38-yard completion to receiver Brandon Marshall against the Bengals and receiver Alshon Jeffery’s 38-yard run on an end-around against the Vikings.
