WindyCity Posted August 20, 2017 Share Posted August 20, 2017 Mike Glennon looked bad again. If he asked to do more than checkdown he looks lost. His throws are late and often in a very dangerous spot. He takes forever to get the ball on to guys and threw behind Meredith on the goal line and on a 1st down out and again to Kevin White on another play that would have been a 1st down. He throws a horrendous redzone pick that was beyond inexcusable. Amaing what DBs can do when they know that there is no chance you are going to throw the ball over their heads. That Mark Sanchez series was a waste of everyone's time including Sanchez. I thought we saw some more of the rough edges from Trubisky. Even with some bad throws and vicious hits he went 6-8 for 60 yards and a TD. The deep throw on the sideline I can forgive. It was a well thrown pass that Gentry could not shake free from and Williams had really good coverage. Gentry did what he was suppose to and broke it up. The sideline throw to Titus Davis was a bad decision, he fell, Williams was all over him, and it should not have been thrown. Other than that I thought he stood in against the pressure and made some nice throws. I think we can start to move on from the Tarik Cohen will not survive in the NFL. He ran hard between the tackles and took shots and did not get blown up. His ability to slip through the hole and hit the gap is really impressive. I am not sure how the Bears can cut Benny Cunningham. He returns, he runs and he catches the ball consistently out of the backfield. Cunningham is what we hoped that Langford might become. Dion Sims had some really nice blocks on Cohen runs. I know some think that his blocking is over rated, but he had an exceptional block on the firs run of the game. Adam Saheen not being able to stay on his feet is a little bit on a concern, but I would really like to see him run a couple routes downfield and not these shallow crosses and out routes. Lets see what he can do down the field and in the slot I am not sure why he comes out of the game, reps, reps and more reps please. I am not going to be critical of the WR group. Glennon was consistently behind and late in getting the ball to the WRs. The passing game was so horizontal that it is almost impossible to assess whether they were getting open. It is clear that Kendall Wright is the #1 slot guy. Hroniss Grasu had a rough 1st series, but after that I thought he was very solid. I am not sure how I feel about Cody Whitehair moving to OG, but right now this is probably the best 5 that the Bears have. I thought Charles Leno and Bobbie Massie had good games. The Cardinals have 2 good rushers, they blitz a ton and I thought that both handled it well and were not giving up the quick pressure of last week.
