Across The Middle – Week 2

| September 14th, 2016

 will-fuller

The word of the day is perspective.

I like to think I’m as passionate a Bears fan as there is. I typically get nervous about the Sunday games on Friday and, when the Bears have a performance like they did against Houston, it ticks me off until the next Wednesday. But none of my common symptoms were there this week.

The reason is simple. The day after the Bears played their opener, my wife was scheduled to be induced and we welcomed the world’s newest Bears fan on Tuesday.

The Bears didn’t mean much to me last week and they don’t this week and I suppose that’s how it should be. But what happened last week shouldn’t mean much to you either. Just like the preseason, there’s a ton of instant reaction. But historically it hasn’t proven to be an indication of things to come.

Surely everyone remembers last season when the Rams beat the Seahawks and the 49ers thumped the Vikings? There were three playoff teams that lost to non-playoff teams last year and it seems to happen every year. Most of the teams in the league are still figuring out who they are the first three weeks of the season.

The Texans seem better than I thought (mostly because of Will Fuller) and the Bears have work to do. We knew the Bears wouldn’t be a finished product coming in. But what happened in Week 1 shouldn’t change your opinion of what kind of team the Bears have this year.

Coaches Have to Be Better

While I’m a big believer in the importance of winning in the trenches, the biggest area in which the Bears were out-classed Sunday was on the sidelines. John Fox single-handily cost the Bears a minimum of 11 points by not challenging two easy plays.

The first was a third-and-six catch by Hopkins in which he pretty clearly didn’t get two feet in — probably not even one foot — but Fox held on to the challenge flag. That drive ended with a touchdown pass to Hopkins. It should’ve ended with a punt.

The next was the quarterback sneak by Brock Osweiler in which Osweiler very clearly didn’t even get back to the line of scrimmage. It wasn’t even close. A few plays later, Will Fuller made fools of the Bears defense for a touchdown.

While NFL replays can often be a crapshoot, I don’t see anyway those calls would not have been overturned. But Fox didn’t challenge. That cost the team 11 points — assuming a made field goal on the second one — in a game they lost by nine points. Hell, even if they weren’t overturned, they were both worth a challenge.

Bears Should Take Notes

The Texans only asked Will Fuller to do one thing: be fast. They ran him deep and got him in space. That was it. Why didn’t the Bears try to do the same with Kevin White?

White is just as fast as Fuller, but a few inches and several pounds heavier. He’s a beast with the ball in his hands, but the Bears didn’t even try to get him in space. Ask him to do what he did well at West Virginia and build on it as you go along.

White has his issues. He showed them on the third quarter interception when he committed the cardinal sin of fooling his quarterback. But it is the job of the coaching staff to play to their strengths. White’s is that he’s freakishly big and fast. Let him be that and worry about the rest later.

I Miss Robbie

History suggests that if the Bears had Robbie Gould as their kicker, they would’ve had six more points on Sunday.

With momentum on their side, Fox uncharacteristically decided to go for it on fourth-and-one. Although the play call was dumb, I admire his aggressiveness and thought it was a sign that the team was going to be more aggressive this year. We learned otherwise later in the game.

The Bears had a fourth down from Houston’s 38 later and Fox elected to punt it instead of attempting a 55-yard field goal, indoors, with the team ahead by a point. If you have a decent kicker, you kick the field goal there. But the Bears couldn’t even consider it.

Robbie Gould was a weapon last year and Fox knew it, attempting nine field goals of 50 yards or more. Gould made seven of those kicks. Given the perfect conditions in Houston, there’s no reason to think he wouldn’t have made two last Sunday. But the Bears don’t have Gould. They have a guy who is only reliable when their red zone offense doesn’t come through.

I get the decision to replace Gould. I don’t understand why they replaced him with Connor Barth.

From the Chart

• The lack of pass rush from Willie Young really stood out as I didn’t have him with a single hit or hurry on Brock Osweiler.

• Cornelius Washington consistently found a way to get pressure on Osweiler, but was never able to get his hands on him. Washington had three hurries in 14 snaps

• If the Bears are going to get the most out of Akiem Hicks, they’re going to have to cut his snaps in half. Throughout his career, he has been at his best when he has played about 40 percent of his team’s snaps, he was at 82.7 percent on Sunday and was completely ineffective.

• Due to the birth of my son, I haven’t had time to chart the Bears’ offense yet, but I can tell you their offensive line wasn’t good. But I’m not worried about it because they were using a new starting five against arguably the best pass rush in the league. It was a bad matchup.

    Interesting comments on Robbie, but we’ve moved on. For now at least.

    • http://www.dabearsbeat.com/ Johnathan Wood

      I think they’re coached not to get touchbacks. They want to cover and try to get a stop short.

      I think that was it last year too. Bears almost never kicked touchbacks early in the year, but that changed once they realized how bad their ST were, and Gould kicked more touchbacks as the year went on.

      • SC Dave

        That has been my impression. I guess we’ll see whether Barth has a strong enough if coverage starts/continues to suck.

      • Jokey

        I’d never have thought teams would do that until I heard it mentioned this year. I wasn’t paying attention closely enough to them to recognize a trend though.

        • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Predictolator<18-1 (Butch)

          I thought pooching Kickoffs would happen more.

          It’s coaches psychology. They ALWAYS trust their guys (cuz their egos must) which means they’ll trust their specials even if it sucks.

          Coaches also HATE giving up “free” yds. Just hate it. Like that cheap friend we all have who always undertips.

    Congrats on the bambino. Nothing better than the Packers v Bears with your baby on your chest.

    Agreed on White. His gig is probably the shake and bake route. Don’t muddle his mind with offense. Send him deep when he’s on, or throw him a bubble screen. Limit his snaps, use Cameron more.

    I’m glad Fox went for it on fourth. Doesn’t take much sand to run it a few inches. No doubt we would have gotten it.

  • http://www.dabearsbeat.com/ Johnathan Wood

    Congrats Andrew. Enjoy not getting any sleep and cleaning somebody else’s shit up for the next few years.

    I mean, uh, enjoy fatherhood.

      Few years?!?! Are you and the missus into boarding school?

        eventually they start sleeping through the night and shitting in a toilet, right?

        I don’t have kids, just basing this off of friends/family who do. They say it gets better in terms of that stuff. Other problems crop up. Each age has its own joys and challenges.

        • MB30SD

          The one thing my ex did was sleep train the shit out of my kids. She was a master. My kids were sleeping 12 hours a night from about 4 months… both of them

          If you screw that up you are… propper. fucked. For years.

          You’re basically sequestered for 3 years regardless. It’s amazing once you finally get them potty trained.

    Heartiest congratulations!

  • willbest

    1) Congrats, I hope mom and child are recovering well

    2) Absolutely agree that the coaching needs to be better, but getting into how much it costs the Bears is foolish. It would completely change the flow of the game and the response by the opposition.

    3) White couldn’t be fast, so he shouldn’t have been out there. That is #2.

    4) You don’t know if Gould could still hit it from 50+ and he was missing PATs

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Predictolator<18-1 (Butch)

      Agree.

      I miss YOUNG Gould.

      But I also missed YOUNG lach and not the one that looked like Frankenstein chasing deers.

  • Bears-4-Ever

    Happy Fatherhood!

    Barth was a band-aid for a major artery. Gould was just not reliable anymore and neither is Barth. We’ll get someone else to be our kicker eventually who is more reliable. Gould made us “spoiled” over his Bear career, but nothing lasts forever.

    I’m nervous about Fox and coaching decisions, but it way to early in the season to be concerned yet. 6-7 Games at least to really know if Fox is turning into “Lovie-Lite”.

    • http://www.dabearsbeat.com/ Johnathan Wood

      Fox has a 15+ year career that clearly shows him as Lovie light. I did a whole comparison on that when they hired Fox (sadly I can’t look back at it for specifics because my former website is no longer up). Eerily similar track records and in-game styles.

      Here’s one area where Fox >>>>>>>>>>>> Lovie: coaching staffs. Fox has a great history of surrounding himself with quality coaches on both sides of the ball. Lovie… does not.

          So what you are saying is we need to start a rumor that Ginny has some dirt on the Clintons and is going to meet with the FBI next month if we want to win the SB this year.

          • GPLDAN

            Hmmm. Let’s pivot that a bit.

            Julian Assange is about to release documents that show that Ginny was conspiring with the NFL to make sure the Bears were terrible as part of undermining Rahm’s re-election campaign.

      roto

      Chiefs waived CB KeiVarae Russell.

      Russell was the No. 74 overall pick in this year’s draft. It’s awfully early to be giving up on such a high draft pick, but Russell must not have been showing much of anything this summer. They’ll likely try to sneak him back on the practice squad. At 5’11/192, Russell ran 4.49 with a 38 1/2-inch vertical and 11-foot-2 broad jump.

      • AlbertInTucson

    • Scharfinator

      Probably pretty fair though. JC has been our best QB in quite a while and had a ton of shit to deal with. He’s survived all sorts of management changes, physical trauma, and the maddog Chicago fan base.

      I almost feel bad for him, then I remember he and his wife have more money than they know what to do with.

      • http://www.dabearsbeat.com/ Johnathan Wood

            B just because he has more time to learn

    • Sauron’s right eyeball

      “Cutler has kept his starting job despite back-to-back losing seasons and last-place finishes in the NFC North.”

      Like Jay Cutler was our problem? I actually don’t believe these guys watch the games. They can’t be this stupid can they?

      • AlbertInTucson

        Apparently he missed the demonstration of what happened to the Bears’ offense when Cutler wasn’t QBing and instead was run by Jimmy “9 possessions, 9 Punts” Clausen.

    • BerwynBomber

      Can’t say I disagree with much of it. One could take exception to Mully’s penultimate line — otherwise what is the point of the Jay/Fox marriage? — but most of the article is fact-based.

      Views on Cutler vary wildly. On one hand you have people who way overvalue him (there are a few on this blog, one who even runs the blog) and on the other you have the occasional Score caller-like idiots who think McCown was a superior QB (in comparison to Cutty).

      The truth is Cutler is what his results and numbers say he is. On a good year he is in the top 16 of the league; on a bad year he is in the bottom 16.

      Maybe what is most interesting in the Mully piece is the suggestion that Fox wanted nothing to do with developing a young QB. Fair enough, and it make sense given Fox’s age and track record. But then what was the whole Pace after TENN/Mariota thing about? It was sourced by too many reputable reporters for it to be complete bullshit, and it made sense at the time. (IMV, it still makes sense.)

      But it probably goes to show that we, as fans, will never know what goes on between the front office and the coaching staff. Or to put a finer point on it, how often or not they are actually in lock step on personnel decisions.

    • BearDown100393

      Cutler is still a better quarterback than Mulligan is a writer.

            I need to create some sort of formula for that.

            Now ass play, they DEF like. Nearly all girls except for prudes who grew up on amish farms, and these girls also typically give HORRIBLE head.

  • Captain Obvious

    That last punt was ridiculous, because they were down by 2 scores with 5 minutes left. Even had they stuffed the Texans 3 plays in a row, a full minute would’ve burned off the clock (because they had only 2 timeouts left after the failed challenge), and so they would’ve gotten the ball back with 4 minutes left, down by 9 with no timeouts.

    In my book, you go for it, even if it’s 4th and 8 (or whatever it was), because you’re not going to win the game if you punt.

      The ultimate Saints bonehead move — among many — was when they let Malcolm Jenkins walk and went out and signed Jarius Byrd. Jenkins was not only as good a S, he was substantially cheaper. Mindless.

    Jeff Triplette will referee the Bears-Eagles game on Monday.

    The best thing that can be said about that is “Well, at least it’s not Ed Hochuli.”

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Predictolator<18-1 (Butch)

      Ed “Guns” Hochuli.

      Also, doesn’t his son ref now?

      Nothing like nepotism to keep the tradition of incompetence alive.

      • AlbertInTucson

        I believe his son IS an NFL official but not a referee.

        Yet.

            It’s a part time job for most of them too… Who wouldn’t like an extra 150k for a weekend gig…

            I’m sure they must put in a bit of time learning all the rules, but yeah… no shit.

        A dad in the business does 2 things for you
        1) You are apprenticing much younger than anybody else
        2) His friends are your friends.

        You see it in pretty much every profession. Including professional sports. See Kyle

      Al, who is worse:

      Bernie Lincicome
      Ed Hochuli

      • AlbertInTucson

        And death is not an option?

        Probably Bernie.

        Hochuli doesn’t do EVERY bear game.

    • BerwynBomber

      I didn’t know Triplett was still in the league. I would actually prefer Hochuli over Triplett.

    The latest DNC Leak was actually pretty heartening. I think when I am in my early 60’s I might be able to pony up the kind of coin it takes to become say the Ambassador to Switzerland for 4-8 years, before I officially retire. If you bet on the right horse and get 8 years the salary will basically cover the initial donation to begin with and then you get to fly to Europe whenever you want on the taxpayers dime.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Ambassadorships have always been pretty much patronage jobs.

          The story has it that Old Joe moved out of London during “The Blitz” and that was why an embarrassed Joe, Jr. volunteered to fly the dangerous mission that ended up killing him.

        Oh I know, I was just surprised at how cheaply a good ambassadorship could be had for. If you wanted Uganda it would probably only set you back 50 grand.

      • Martin Bell

        I need only look at the accomplishments of the Bears since
        the 80s to form an opinion on the quality of Bear management. There are so many family mouths to feed that there is nothing left to develop a team. I had season’s tickets for years from Halas(the Luckman years) to Ditka. The gang running the show now is taking advantage of the city and Bear fans and as long as they put up with it without protest, the Bears will remain the Mice of the Midway!

      Do you use Google Play for apps? I’ve been hesitant to use it due to privacy concerns. Is that warranted? I mainly use my Samsung for basic things like texting and e-mail, but thought about adding some more apps.

    Odd stat. Before the past Sunday no NFL QB had ever passed for over 300 yards, 4 TDs and 0 INTs and lost their opening game. No more.

    Enjoy your crappy teams, Messrs. Brees and Luck. Gonna be a long year.

    Yesterday’s Jets vs Buffalo, Forte: 100+ yds 3 TDs, Marshall 6 catches 100+ yds. The Bears total almost didn’t match their 2 castoffs let go only to lighten the payroll, not to advance the team. Robby Gould, let go for the same reason will come back to haunt them…………I hope, just to serve them right.
