Rising

Corey Wootton (right): The Bears’ defensive end yielded his starting job to Shea McClellin on Sunday but recorded the team’s only sack and hurry.

Marc Trestman: Two other Bears coaches have started their careers 2-0 — George Halas and Neill Armstrong.

Bears’ record: Too early to scoreboard watch? The Bears are 2-0 and lead the NFC North.

UP AND DOWN

Grass: Trestman gave the turf good reviews, despite the rain and the Illinois-Washington game Saturday. “To have the field in that condition was awesome,” he said. However, some players privately complained.

Falling

Spelling: McClellin played with his last name misspelled. His jersey was missing the first L.

Leslie Frazier’s spirits: The Vikings coach blamed himself for the loss, saying there were “things I didn’t do in my role.”
