Trubisky Calls New Bears' Backfield "Three Headed Monster".

The Chicago Bears revamped their backfield this offseason to something that should fit Matt Nagy's style of play better. Gone are Benny Cunningham and Jordan Howard replaced by Mike Davis and rookie David Montgomery. Davis and Montgomery along with Tarik Cohen will bring more versatility to the backfield and quarterback Mitch Trubisky is pretty excited about it. «We've got a three-headed monster that's going to be able to make huge plays for this offense,» Trubisky said. «Very talented guys and pretty much handpicked by (general manager) Ryan Pace and Coach Nagy. I 100 percent believe in those guys.«Just being around Mike and being back with Tarik, you just feel like these guys really fit this offense and are able to do the things we want them to do — running the zone scheme, making guys miss, extending plays, running guys over and catching the ball out of the backfield. That's what we expect from David and Mike.»As good as the offense looked at times last year, it wasn't all good as the team ranked 27th in the NFL in yards per carry, 20th in yards per play and 21st in total offense.Hopefully Davis and Montgomery can play a huge part in turning things around.
