Chicago Bears observations ....

Recommended Posts

Just finished watching the Bears - Ravens game. 

 

A few random thoughts... 

 

Trubisky definitely looks like a rookie. Plenty of terrible throws (50% completion rate). Even the completions were poor throws for the most part, the touchdown the their TE should have been picked off, was underthrown. 

Trubisky doesn't have the pocket awareness yet, susceptible to holding on to the ball not knowing he is about to get sacked. There is opportunity here I think. 

They do a good job of rolling Trubisky out right (novel idea, huh?) to alleviate some of the pressure. We will see this Sunday. 

Bears run game is no joke. Howard is bruiser, Cohen is fast and shifty, and their fullback lays wood. Everything you would expect from John Fox ball control. I am more concerned about Cohen in this game. Both on offense and as a returner. 

 

On defense the Bears look pretty tough. Their DL gets plenty of push and causes disruption. It looks like they are not as strong stopping the run on the outside. Baltimore had some luck there. 

Bears had two athletic interceptions. One run back for 50+ yards, the other run back for a touchdown. I have forgotten what that looks like. 

Overall, I feel like the Panthers will take away the run game and force Trubisky to throw. If he looks anything like he did in Baltimore, should be a Panthers win.

Sounds like a team that Shula will try to exploit the edges on. Here comes wide pitches to Stew. 2nd and 15 instead of the usual 2nd and 12.

Howard had some luck with pitches, but looked a bit faster than Stew. I hope Shula doesn't see that.

Good job on the defense breakdown. & run game breakdown. Not too big on the Trubisky breakdown. I watched both Minny and Baltimore games (And Pitt and TB for fun), and he has a lot of throwaways. The Center Whitehair is having quite a few issues with his snaps so some throwaways have come from there. Trubisky missed a couple in the Bmore game, but his #1 and #2 WR's are an undrafted rookie from Wyoming and a 7th rounder they just plucked from Tennessee's practice squad(and what QB doesn''t miss some)? He also came back with some big one's with pressure in his face when asked to make a play

Where was the underthrow? Looks like he lead the TE into the endzone pretty good to me considering he was about to get flattened.

. Without the throwaways his completion % is sitting around 80%. He's got such few attempts anyways and a bunch of throwaways because their receivers are having issues separating I'm not getting hung up on #'s. He does hold the ball too long from what I saw considering he knows what they have at WR, and he could speed up his eyes, but he's looked composed enough for what they are asking him to do which is game manage and IMO from what I've seen you can't count on him to force the issue when it isn't there which is a very valuable for a young QB to already understand.

The TE had to slow down reach behind him to catch that ball. It was underthrown.

Slightly, was in no danger of getting picked unless the defender spontaneously grew like 2 more feet and some eyes popped up behind his head. Maybe could have gotten a PBU if he was hauling ass, but maybe and if doesn't cut it.

If the Safety doesn't blow the coverage it is likely a pick.

Was that the throw where he threw on the run, without his feet planted?

 Busted coverages are more common than herpes, especially on a scramble drill.
