was the fact that the Bears did something they hadnt done in nearly three seasons.In overcoming a 14 point deficit Sam Acho Jersey , they successfully won after trailing by two touchdowns for the first time since Week 5 of the 2015 season against the Chiefs, when they trailed 17-3.In overcoming a 14-0 first quarter deficit, they did something they hadnt done since Week 6 of the 2006 season, yes, also against Arizona. That was of course, the famous Brian Urlacher Miracle in the Desert game. Last season, a 14-0 deficit would have been a for sure game over scenario. Now though, with this defense, the Bears feel like they are never quite fully out of a game, which is nice, since the offense needs all the help it can get.There were some bright spots in Sundays game, even if it wasnt the offensive performance weve all been waiting for and wanting.Stock upSherrick McManis, DB - McManis, who is the last holdover from the Lovie Smith era and the longest-tenured Bear, has started just five games for Chicago. He is generally regarded as a Josh Bellamy type; a guy who is a good (although in McManiss case Id say great) special teamer, but a guy that the teams better off not having to rely on too much to play on a starting unit.But Sunday was a big game for the career special teamer: He had a great special teams tackle in the open field and then, when pressed into the line up, had an athletic, diving interception, a pass defensed http://www.thebearslockerroom.com/au...-hester-jersey , a tackle for loss, a sack and a QB hit. His INT and sack came late in the game when the Bears needed a big play to close it out. Hats off to him, it was his first interception since his rookie season in 2010.Kyle Long, G - Long has bounced back after a couple of injury-plagued seasons and two offseason surgeries to beginning to look like his old self. On Sunday he was getting downfield, pulling and overall just wrecking dudes. If only practicing once or twice a week means we get Pro Bowl or All-Pro level Long on Sundays, then I am all for it.Trey Burton, TE - Burton had four catches for the second straight week and it seems like maybe, finally hes getting the production that was expected after a preseason of hearing his name daily in training camp reports. He finished Sunday with a season high 55 yards. As Trubisky hopefully gets up to speed, well see more of Burton, like we did on his 25-yard catch along the sideline Sunday.Stock downEric Kush, G - Kush had a rough game with two penalties and getting pushed around with some regularity. The Cardinals have some good defensive players, but issues like this is only going to make the calls for rookie James Daniels to see the field grow louder.Mitch Trubisky, QB - This isnt to say there werent some positives, but every week that the offense struggles to muster up just one or two touchdowns, the questions and complaints will only grow louder. Patience should still be heeded but Bears fans are an impatient bunch, especially with a defense that looks like this one.Kevin Tolliver, CB - Tolliver showed his rookie stripes Sunday. He was targeted and burned a couple times, notably by rookie speedster Christian Kirk. Tolliver may have an increased workload if Prince Amukamara misses a lot of time with his hamstring injury.Who stood out, good and bad, to you? We talked about why we addressed the question in the above title Womens Danny Trevathan Jersey , and also yesterdays similar question about the head coach, in Thursdays article titled, Is Matt Nagys seat getting warm? But heres the condensed version for those that missed it. Some of you guys (fans/and media) are already talking about giving up on the Chicago Bears head coach and GM five games into their second season and quite frankly, thats ludicrous. And yet, I hear it every morning on the radio during my commute, Im peppered with it on our Twitter and Facebook feeds, and theres a vocal minority in our comment section at WCG too. We all think its a silly notion, but about 30% of those polled yesterday (as of this writing) believe the head coachs seat is warming up. Since Ryan Pace is the man tasked with buying the groceries we had to pose the question about him being on the hot seat, so heres what we asked our team. After the first five games of the season, is Ryan Paces seat starting to warm?Like I already said, my opinion on this matter is that its ludicrous to even consider a change at general manager or head coach, but a peek at the recent FanPulse votes and it seems there are several of you guys that are no longer confident in the direction of the franchise. That chart has us Bears fans down to only a 42% confidence level, which is the lowest of the Nagy/Pace era. Im sure some of that vote is from reactionary fans that get pissed off after every loss, but I would hope our FanPulse voters are smarter than that. Anyway, heres how the WCG staffers answered that question about Pace being on the hot seat.Bill Zimmerman - Ryan Pace may not have hit a home run with the quarterback which is absolutely a knock against him. But hes built a very strong roster after taking over a laughable one. Not only is Ryan Paces seat not warm, I expect him here at least another five years.Erik Christopher Duerrwaechter - Absolutely not. Even though Ryan Pace is the GM who drafted Mitchell Trubisky, hes built a team thats 1) deep with talent for years to come and 2) capable of winning lots of games. Quite frankly, Pace is one of the least appreciated GMs in the entire league. And, before everybody starts with but he made so-and-such a mistake every single GM makes mistakes. Even the hall of fame managers like Ron Wolf, Gil Brandt Cody Whitehair Jersey , and Bobby Beathard made mistakes. Hes earned his stay in Chicago, and perhaps one more chance at a quarterback, if Trubisky doesnt pan out. WhiskeyRanger - No. He took over a team that arguably had the worst roster in the NFL, and has built a team that made the playoffs last season, and heads into the bye week at 3-2 in the strongest division in football. The loss against the Raiders was frustrating. I get it. But lets not overreact here.Jacob Infante - Paces seat should not be hot in the slightest. His quarterback decision in 2017 may not have been a great one, but he has made so many fantastic moves to construct the Bears roster with talented players, many of whom are still relatively young and in their prime. Of the poor moves he has made, none of them have truly crippled the franchise and were easily correctable. If the Bears choose to move on from Trubisky--or if they re-sign him--I fully expect Pace to still be the general manager when they make their decision.Ken Mitchell - Ryan Paces seat is as cold as ice. Having said that, how he reacts to the challenges of making up for his inevitable misses in the draft (EVERY GM misses, A LOT) will go a long way towards seeing whether his seat remains sub-freezing or starts to thaw. Hes proven he can learn from his mistakes, but he will need to continue to make adjustments as resources become more limited due to his successes being re-upped.Josh Sunderbruch - I am a pretty vocal Pace critic. I maintain that some of that criticism was deserved. However, the Bears would have to implode for Pace to be in danger. He has results to point to and he has excuses to give. Hes safe.Patti Curl - Ryan pace is sitting in a swirly chair popping Hot Tamales and counting the pro bowlers on his roster over and over again.Robert Schmitz - Well... maybe. Ryan Pace is the architect of this great defense and he certainly gets credit for that, but if the Bears implode this season the blame will likely fall more on him than anyone else. Much of the success of the 2019 season, let alone the 2020 season and beyond, rides on the success of some of Paces highest profile acquisitions, so if (and Im intentionally overstating things here) Trubisky doesnt pan out and Roquan continues to struggle and Montgomery never gets going and Anthony Miller disappoints and the offensive line continues its dreadful stretch of play, I have to imagine Pace will shoulder the majority of the blame. Considering that Pace has spent future draft capital to open up a championship window right here and now, his seat will likely warm before others, but its quite cold right now.Sam Householder - No. Pace has had more good (Goldman, Whitehair http://www.thebearslockerroom.com/au...bullard-jersey , Amos, Howard, Floyd, Jackson, Cohen, Nichols and Smith) than bad (White, Shaheen, Bullard, Grasu), hes found solid depth/role players (Bush, Kwiatkoski, Wims) and the jury is still out on Trubisky, Daniels and Miller. Hes added three All-Pros in Cohen, Jackson and Mack, two through the draft. Maybe he missed on Trubisky but he still hired Nagy and built the majority of this roster for the better.Just like yesterday, if you guys ask Sam really nicely, he could share with you his WCG-MA version of his answer to this question. It was just as fire as his response about Nagy.
