(670 The Score) After the Bears improved to 5-1 with an ugly 23-16 win against the Panthers on Sunday afternoon, Chicago quarterback Nick Foles wasn't satisfied. He instead was fired up in a passionate postgame press conference.
"Now, we're not going to get complacent and say, 'Hey man, we're 5-1, this is it. No!" Foles said the Bears. "We're sitting there in the locker room after the game talking through it. 'Hey, we gotta be better here, communication here, route running here, hey we gotta be able to run the ball here.' We know that. I know ya'll are going to ask those questions, we know that. And that's what's exciting because we don't have to have ya'll saying, 'Hey, you doing this...' We know! But we also know that we're going to improve because we believe in one another and that's what great teams do. Great teams find a way to win a game. Bad teams win with prettiness. Great teams win no matter how it takes.
"So, I'm proud of our guys. I think we're continuing to improve. Are we where we want to be? No we're not where we want to be. But I'm excited about our offense. I'm excited about the guys that are there. I like the communication that's happening on the sideline, I love the passion of the players. Most importantly, they care and we're bonding. We're getting to know each other. That's football! You gotta care about the man next to you to make those plays."
