"No, I don't think so. That just speaks a lot about the type of guys we have up front and the running backs we have here and if the defense plays that type of coverage and they give us that front that we gotta run the ball until they get out of it. It just says a lot about the guys up front that they can carry the load and the running backs can carry the load and really carry this team to run the ball that many times and stay effective at it and have that type of average running, so it was awesome.-- Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky on if he ever handed the ball off so much at North Carolina.

"He looks like he's 25-year-old Pep. That's just the way he is — he's a freak show. That's how he's made his money for so many years and he'll continue to do it." -- Bears right guard Kyle Long on facing Panthers veteran pass-rusher Julius Peppers.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

"Um, we don't need to run the ball 50 times and only call 17 passes. That's a big part of it. It's just kind of the way the game goes. We have a lot of faith in Adam as a player. I believe he played 20 snaps in the game, I believe around there. We're going to continue to increase his role, we do have faith in him. Some of those are things in the plan that you get to, and you think the game — we've carried 104 passes into the game and we call 17, and some of those things are designed for Adam. But Adam is a good player and a good tight end. I don't think his statistics speak to what talent he is." -- Bears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains on how the get 2nd round pick TE Adam Shaheen more involved.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

“He's gotten better. We still had one too many. The thing and point I want to make with Cody Whitehair is...we're an outside zone team that ran 25 snaps of inside zone because of what they were playing. It changed our game plan and Cody's a big part of that. The last two weeks we've been able to move those guys inside. He's a really good football player. We're going to battle through these snap issues. We're cutting them down. He's more accurate. He did have the one that obviously is unacceptable and no one owns that more than Cody Whitehair does." -- Bears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains on center Cody Whitehair's struggles with shotgun snaps.
