Chicago Bears vs Seattle Seahawks Preview:
Which Players to Watch For After last week’s loss to the Packers at Lambeau Field , a few players stuck out to me that I will specifically be watching for on Monday night when the Bears host the Seahwawks. Between some poor snaps and an ineligible player downfield penalty for Whitehair, the early disappearance of Tarik Cohen, the uncalled holding penalties against Leonard Floyd, and the long touchdown given up coupled with a dropped interception for Kyle Fuller, I am curious just how these players will rebound or be better utilized this week. Here is my list of players to keep an eye on Monday night. Who to WatchCody Whitehair: This might be the single most important player on offense this week. Hear me out here. Whitehair’s snapping issues have been well-documented. This offense is based out of the shotgun on over 80% of the snaps. Whitehair had more poor snaps last week than good ones. This is starting to become a problem. The timing of every play you run is thrown off when the snap isn’t consistent. This is something to monitor...again. Tarik Cohen: Cohen’s usage in the passing game mysteriously disappeared after the first quarter last week. It was obvious that he is going to be a huge part of this offense, but he needs consistent touches. There are a lot of hungry mouths to feed on offense, but stick to your roots because until further notice, Howard and Cohen are your 2 best weapons on offense. Leonard Floyd: A lot of folks were mystified by Floyd’s performance against the Packers. I’m not sure that I agree with that. On a lot of plays, Floyd was simply the second man there on pressures or sacks. There were several missed holding penalties on Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari as well. Floyd also did a nice job in coverage last week. He is learning to play a new side since the Khalil Mack trade and has a club on his hand. I saw some promising things from Floyd and he will need to step it up for this defense to reach its peak.Kyle Fuller: How does Fuller respond to a rather poor showing against the Packers? Against this group of receivers, the answer had better be really well. That dropped interception that would have sealed the game is the type of play that can really get in a player’s head. I think Fuller rebounds and has a big least that’s my hope. What are your thoughts?Which Bears players are you keeping an eye on this Monday night against the Seahawks?Stay tuned for my three keys to the game tomorrow morning and in case you missed it, here is my What to Watch For from yesterday. LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP)Chicago Bears defensive end Akiem Hicks had just sacked Carolina’s Cam Newton. Then he paid tribute to an injured teammate. Hicks waved his arms as if he were casting a fishing rod Womens Trey Burton Jersey , just as outside linebacker Willie Young does when he’s the one taking down the quarterback. Bears defenders have reeled in plenty of big plays the past two weeks, enough to carry Chicago to back-to-back wins. Rookie safety Eddie Jackson became the first player to score multiple defensive TDs of 75 yards or more in a game, leading a strong push by the defense in a 17-3 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. That also made him the only rookie in NFL history with two 75-yard defensive touchdowns in a season. ”Not making dumb mistakes, making sure we’re locked in mentally,” Hicks, who had one of Chicago’s five sacks against Newton, said Monday. ”You go the whole week and you try to focus on what you’ve got installed and what you’re going to do. You want to go to a game and execute just as well as you did in practice and I think there were some times in the earlier part of the season where we didn’t execute.” They have been clicking lately with six takeaways over the past two games. The defense has not allowed a touchdown in that stretch. Jackson’s huge game came a week after safety Adrian Amos also had a big moment. Playing in his hometown, he returned an interception 90 yards for a touchdown at Baltimore. With consecutive victories, the Bears (3-4) are on their first win streak in two years. They also matched their win total from last season, when they finished 3-13. Sure, there is still plenty of room for improvement – particularly on offense. But the Bears will take this result. Chicago had not won two in a row since back-to-back victories at San Diego and St. Louis in November 2015 – coach John Fox’s first season. If they win at New Orleans on Sunday, the Bears will match their longest run since a 3-0 start under former coach Marc Trestman in 2013. ”I don’t think any of us feel like we’ve arrived at all Cody Parkey Jersey , especially for us offensively,” tight end Zach Miller said. ”I feel like, I’m happy to win, but I’m not happy with the way we played. That’s just the bottom line. ”We need to be more balanced, open things up a little bit. That’ll come. It’s just, the game played out the way it did Sunday. The ultimate factor is we won the game. That’s just how it is. As we progress at it, hopefully we’ll be better on the offensive side of the ball.” The Bears got dominated in yards (293-153), in time of possession (38:35-21:25), in offensive plays (69-37) and in first downs (20-5). Despite all of that, they came out on top. They won even though Mitchell Trubisky completed just 4 of 7 passes for 107 yards while getting sacked four times. Other than a 70-yarder to Tarik Cohen, the No. 2 overall pick did very little. Trubisky has shown some promising flashes in the three starts since he took over for the struggling Mike Glennon. His athleticism allows him to extend plays that might have ended in sacks, and he has the arm strength to go deep. But he also came to the NFL with limited college experience and is working with a depleted wide receiver group. The Bears have also simplified their game plan and are leaning heavily on the run. All that helps explain a less-than-spectacular stat line: 24 for 48 with 348 yards in the three games. ”It’s not like he’s had any cupcakes as far as the defenses he’s going up against ,” Fox said. ”And there’s been enough flashes there where you see bright things.” The defense is performing as the Bears hoped, despite losing several key players to injuries. Young (triceps), safety Quintin Demps (broken arm) and inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman (pectoral) are all on injured reserve. Freeman’s replacement Nick Kwiatkoski is also out with a pectoral injury, and linebacker John Timu hurt his knee against Minnesota two weeks ago. Hicks has been dominant up front, and with six sacks, he is one shy of a career high he set over 16 games last season. A secondary widely seen as a potential sore spot entering the season is coming up with big plays, too. ”They’re firing on all cylinders, they’re getting after everybody, they’re aggressive,” Hicks said. —
