Bears Working To Get 'Back On Track' For Sunday's Game Against Lions

CHICAGO (CBS) -- It's a pull out all the stops kind of week at Halas Hall after the offense's abysmal performance against the Browns.

CBS 2's Matt Zahn reports that includes Matt Nagy inviting the players to give their input on Tuesday.

"We had a good talk with him. Take a step back and egos aside looking at this thing. What do we gotta do to get back on track," said Bears tight end Cole Kmet.

"I think that's big of him to do that. A lot of coaches wouldn't do that. He stepped back, 'what do my guys think?' We know we'll make the adjustments, and he knows we're in lockstep to make the necessary adjustments as well," added Bears offensive tackle Germaine Ifedi.

And of course there is plenty of adjusting to be done, especially when it comes to the offensive line.

"It starts with each person knowing we have to do our assignments. We have to be on point. Can't be miscommunication," Ifedi said. "I'm excited to see how we respond to the challenge. We got hay makered a little bit, but you got to pick yourself off the mat."

Ifedi said everybody has been out at practice 30 minutes early even veterans like Jimmy Graham. He says he's never seen that before. We'll see if that makes a difference Sunday against Lions.
