Gruden even said how gassed they were doing it that way last year, hence the reason they flew out last week after their game.
Mitch isnt the answer, Chase is a career back up for a reason. Why not give the kid a shot? If anybody still thinks the Bears can win a SB with Mitch you need to go get your head checked out. Imo, they have absolutely nothing to lose by giving Bray a shot.
According to the poll at the bottom of the screen, the fans think its Tyler Bray time!
This was actually brought up by a caller on the Post-Game show on 670 the Score. And it was answered pretty well by a former Bear player (either Anthony Herron or Olin Kreutz).
Gruden did say the main reason they left when they left was due to last year. He said they flew out Thursday treating it like a normal road game.This was actually brought up by a caller on the Post-Game show on 670 the Score.

Each team sends scouts ahead to get a lay of the land for where they're playing. What facilities are or aren't available and what technology is available (I.E. watching tapes of the opponents schemes for example), evidently the Bears felt that the facilities and tech wasn't suitable to their needs and also allowed players to stay at home in their comfort zone (one could argue TOO comfortable after that first half), and then they would fly out on Thursday.
Meanwhile Oakland went over right away. The issue for Oakland was that they had a game in Indy the week before. So why fly back to San-Fran/Oakland area, only to have to pack up and leave a couple days later, taking a longer flight from SFO to London, when O'Hare was right here. It was a logistics reason.
Long is hurt and probably done, Leno was good last year not sure what happened to him.I watched an analysis of the Raiders game. Kyle Long and Charles Leno NEED to go. They both SUCK this year. The two of them combined to make enough mistakes to stop the run game of the Bears.
The elbow dislocation injury to Hicks was awful, especially in slow motion. If he comes back this year, we'll be lucky.
The Raiders play dirty. Illegal chop blocks on Eddie Goldman multiple times, etc. Not called by the refs.
