Bears’ players-only meeting featured ideas ‘we know can help our team’

While some didn’t want to divulge the details — “We’re going to keep that in-house,” quarterback Mitch Trubisky said — inside linebacker Danny Trevathan said it was a positive experience.

One day after vowing to hold a players-only meeting, the Bears did.

While some didn’t want to divulge the details — “We’re going to keep that in-house,” quarterback Mitch Trubisky said — inside linebacker Danny Trevathan said it was a positive experience.

“We’re full-tilt,” he said. “There’s no pause, there’s no panic. … We’re just looking forward to getting better. Anything that was brought to the table was things we thought of that we know can help our team. …

“This is football. This is Chicago football. This is what we signed up for. Guys know that everybody can get a little bit better. Everybody took that attitude.”

Bears coach Matt Nagy said earlier in the day he supported his players, meeting or not.

“That’s up to them,” he said. “If that’s something they did, I completely support that, and if it’s something that they didn’t do, I completely support that, as well.”
