A three game winning streak will do wonders for a football team’s confidence and enthusiasm. That’s the case with the Bears who have returned to work following their bye week.
The Bears three game winning streak is their first since the 2013 season.
“Collectively, I mean there’s a little bounce to the guys and I think that goes back to being able to have that confidence when you have a good game. It naturally gives you confidence,” said head coach Matt Nagy Wednesday at Halas Hall.
“I feel like everybody can feel it. Even then you can also feel kind of the focus, energy level of everybody wanting to sustain the level that we’re playing at, if not, get better,” says Khalil Mack.
Remaining in first place in the NFC North with a defense that leads the league with 18 sacks and an offense that’s improving the Bears have more than enough reason to be as confident as they are right now, but as coach Nagy has repeated after every win his team can’t get too comfortable.”
“What you have to make sure that you prevent is making sure that you get complacent with that and you think it’s just going to happen every week because it’s not,” says Nagy.
“We was talking earlier some of the older guys about not getting complacent,” says linebacker Danny Trevathan. “It’s been a long time since it’s been like this around here, and we want to stay this way.”
While fans might have Super Bowl dreams drifting into the heads the Bears are staying focused for now. They know better than to look too far ahead.
“It’s all about how you finish now so we can write that end story and have a good fairytale ending at the end,” says Trevanthan.
