Following their OTA practice, Chicago Bears head coach, Matt Eberflus, met with the media. Almost immediately, reporters asked Coach Flus about their suspended practice. The Bears’ leader responded by stating the plays happened early in their training.

Eberflus says it comes down to the players having their bodies under control. The players hustle and need to know the tempo. But they sometimes get a bit overzealous and accidents happen. The NFL did not issue any fines to the Bears.

Bears Competition and True Evaluation

Rookie offensive lineman, Braxton Jones, took snaps with the first team while Larry Borom and Tevin Jenkins played with the second. Coach Eberflus states:

“This creates competition. Once the pads are on, the true evaluation starts. This is about who can function and who can execute. It’s good for our team.”

Bears’ media personnel asked Coach Flus about how his time in Dallas and Indianapolis is similar to the Bears with a young quarterback. Eberflus responded saying the time in Dallas is closer since Dak Prescott was a similar age to Justin Fields.

He doesn’t intend on comparing the two quarterbacks because they’re different players but the jump from rookie season to their second season seems very similar.

Coach Matt Eberflus continued the Chicago Bears press conference by talking about the culture. He says they’re building the culture they intended to and that this team will adapt to adversity. Pivoting to different situations is crucial and the Bears are practicing doing that with more than just in-game moments.
