NFC Notes: Bears, Cowboys, Seahawks, Vikings


Bears QB Mitch Trubisky said he’s “pretty disappointed” in his performance during Sunday’s game against the Rams, but the good news is that his shoulder wasn’t bothering him during the game.

“It sucked being out for two weeks,” Trubisky said, via “But, I mean, the shoulder really wasn’t bothering me at all, not my mindset or anything like that.

“Yeah, I’m pretty disappointed in myself, that way I played … but it’s hard to be down when you get such a big win like that. You have to put your own selfish thoughts about how you played aside.”

“I mean, I’ll get everything corrected,” Trubisky added.

On Tuesday, the Vikings made the decision to fire OC John DeFilippo with three games left in the regular season.

Vikings HC Mike Zimmer explained that he simply did not “want the season wasted” and is hoping the change could help them get things turned around on offense.

I always feel like if you hire a guy you should stick with him, try to help him, help him mature as a coach,” Zimmer said, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “This one, unfortunately with the timing and situation with last three games, still having an opportunity — [I] don’t want the season wasted. Maybe it will [be], maybe it won’t. But these three games are very, very critical and we need to play good.
