DJ Moore is still thinking playoffs despite Bears' 0-2 start


(Audacy) The Bears have stumbled out of the gate, but that hasn’t impacted top receiver DJ Moore’s mindset. He plans to be playing well into January.

The Bears are winless through two games after falling 27-17 to the Buccaneers on Sunday. After getting shellacked by the Packers in their opener, the Bears were down just three points moments before the two-minute warning Sunday, at which point Buccaneers linebacker Shaq Barrett produced a pick-six to clinch the win for Tampa Bay.

The Bears did show more life in Week 2. Moore was more involved in the offense, and Chicago got through the first quarter with the lead. But it unraveled from there, a reminder that the Bears are a work in progress.

Amid the 0-2 start, Moore was asked Monday on the Mully & Haugh Show what his message would be for Bears fans who wonder if there are any signs of hope. It’s clear his confidence isn't yet wavering.

“I’d be like hell yeah (there are signs of hope),” Moore said. “It's only two weeks into the season. We got a long, long season — plus some, because I plan on making the playoffs with the Bears.”

It would be concerning if one of the Bears' top weapons didn't have playoff aspirations this early in the season. That said, for such a plan to come to pass, the Bears are going to have to right the ship soon as a road matchup against the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs awaits in Week 3.
