Every week of the 2015 Chicago Bears season, Chicago Sun-Times Sports will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 1985 Bears by speaking with players from the team including Jimbo Covert, Dan Hampton, Dennis McKinnon and Otis Wilson.
Dan Hampton hasn’t shied away from being critical of Bears players early in the 2015 season, and that didn’t stop ahead of week two.
“You got to make plays to win,” Hampton said. “You got a lot of guys, getting paid a lot of money. I’m talking about Pernell Mcphee, Jared Allen, even Alshon Jeffery.”
Hampton admitted there were a lot of good things that he saw during the Bears’ loss against the Green Bay Packers during the first week of the regular season, but it wasn’t enough.
McPhee contributed six tackles against the Packers, with Allen totaling three. Neither player recorded a sack — as the Bears defense went without a sack against Aaron Rodgers.
Jeffery caught five passes for 78 yards while noticeably favoring an injured calf.
