Ranking the Bears: The Bottom Of The Roster

| July 26th, 2016

AR-150809104

Training camp is here and the Bears have a number of interesting young players coming to camp who are worth getting to know. They also have a lot of players who you probably don’t need to know anything about.

To save everyone time, I did a little research on each player and ranked all those entering camp. You’re welcome.

Here are the guys on the bottom of the roster:

59. Jonathan Anderson, LB. His performance against the Packers on Thanksgiving might have been the best the Bears got out of any of their inside linebackers last year. He’s fast, but can’t beat blocks and may not have the necessary instincts. Still someone to watch in camp as a possible special teams contributor.

58. Tony Moeaki, TE. Just seems like he’s been done for five years. Worth a camp invite, but I don’t see him being much more than that.

57. Ben Braunecker, TE. Nicknamed Bronk because everyone wants to be nicknamed after Rob Gronkowski. Went undrafted in a fairly week TE class, but he’s a good athlete and he’s from Harvard.

56. Cornelius Washington, DL. A super freak athlete who hasn’t been able to have an impact on the Bears defense. He has been a good special teams player, but is coming off a serious injury.

55. Pat O’Donnell, P. Has a big leg, but ranked in the bottom half of the league in both punting average and net average. Also was outside the top 10 in punts inside the 20 and punt return average. And has had at least one punt blocked each of the last two years. Maybe a victim of the Bears overall poor performances on special teams, but also seems to be a below average punter.

54. Aaron Brewer, LS. The Bears brought him over from the Broncos where both Fox and Jeff Rodgers previously coached him. He’ll be alright, but he’s no Patrick Mannelly. Then again, who is?

53. Christian Jones, LB. I’m not entirely sure what to make of Jones. He showed flashes as a rookie, but looked lost all of last year. I think he’s a better fit as an outside linebacker, so he’s higher on this list than he otherwise would be.

52. Deonte Thompson, WR/KR. Averaged nearly 30 yards per kick return last year and came through with a  number of big returns when they needed them. Also made a couple big plays in the passing game. It’ll be interesting to see if he can do enough to warrant a roster spot.

51. Daniel Braverman, WR. The kind of overachiever Bears fans love to root for, but he might have a tough time making the team. The Bears have two good slot receivers and better options as return men. But, then again, Braverman is used to people betting against him.

50. Nick Becton, OT. Ryan Pace mentioned Becton as a backup tackle they had confidence in but we really haven’t seen much of anything from him.

49. Roy Robertson-Harris, DL. A pretty highly thought of UDFA. Most thought he’d be an edge rusher, but Bears list him as a defensive lineman. Might need a red shirt year, but is an interesting prospect.

48. Chris Prosinski, S. A solid special teams player who had a good game at safety on Thanksgiving against Green Bay. Eventually lost his job to an UDFA.

47. DeAndre Houston-Carsons, S. The wildcard amongst the Bears young DBs. Seemed to have a knack for blocking kicks in college. Not a great athlete, but might have good enough instincts to make an impact.

46. Jacquizz Rodgers, RB. Veteran back averaged less than three yards per carry before he was injured last year. Has value on special teams and on passing downs, the latter of which could make him a lock for a roster spot if nobody else on the team shows they can block.

45. Senorise Perry, RB. He was a four-phase special teams standout as a rookie. Showed explosiveness as both a return man and a running back in preseason last year before season-ending injury.

44. Rob Housler, TE. Has been a productive receiver in the league, but that was a lifetime — by NFL standards — ago.

43. Amini Silatolu, OG. I had never heard this name until the Bears signed him. He’s got quite a bit of experience and potential, but he can’t stay healthy. He was a backup before being injured last year, but Carolina’s interior offensive line was very good. Probably will be a backup for the Bears, but worth watching.

        Thanks mike, fixed for you

  • Swing Tackle of Destiny

    Jock Jizz will have to show flashes of his old form or lose out. Perry is gone. Housler is gone.

    I like Anderson, but we saw the upper limits of his game last year. Prosinki will make the team, I think, just because of the safety issues. Same with Corneilus. He was worse than Bass Kicker, they kept him for his freak athletic, but it is not showing up unless it does in a huge way this PS.

    Jones will get one more shout outside and will fight Acho for a spot. But I think Acho wins.

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

      CornWash played a different position than Bass in the new defense. Bass was OLB, which was very deep, while CornWash played DE. And CornWash carries tremendous ST value that Bass did not.

      Quizz is very likely to make the team because of his 3rd down abilities, which are unique for RB on this roster. Perry has a good shot because of ST.

      • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Zimas-&-Zika (ButchDeadLift)

        Agree. They made Cornwash a DE, and if I remember correctly, for the brief times he was in, he flashed.

        I have no issue letting Cornwash compete. At worst, stash him on the PS, but I could easily see the Pats scooping him up and making him productive.

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

          This is his 4th season, meaning he’s not PS eligible anymore.

    • Irish Sweetness

      Perry might be our best back!

          HOF!!!!

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Zimas-&-Zika (ButchDeadLift)

      I can’t imagine Jizz sticking around.

      Howard short yd, Langford they’re gonna try to make the new Jizz (though he dropped too many passes).

      If Jizz sticks that’s a bad omen. Most likely means Langford is still dropping too many passes, and they don’t trust him to catch or pass block.

      Though it might come down to Carey -v- Jizz, but again, Carey should win that battle, esp now that he played a lil SP teams.

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

    Roy Robertson-Harris is actually listed as a LB on the Bears’ site, not a DE: http://www.chicagobears.com/team/roster.html

    • Andrew Dannehy

      He was listed as a DL last week, when I wrote this and I didn’t check it again.

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

        Weird. I checked this a couple weeks ago when having that discussion and it was LB too.

        I guess we’ll get some clarification this week.

  • Captain Obvious

    Playing in the NFL at his weight, Daniel is a braver man than I.

  • Big Mike

    What I love about this list is that 43-59 looks better than last years 33-49.

    You forgot “Made the team because he was drafted, not because he was the better punter in camp that year.”

    • AlbertInTucson

      Was the other punter that camp (wait for it)….”Way” better.?

      • CanadaBear

        Tress!

      Bowles and the NYJ GM think they can handle an unhappy Marshall. They cannot.

      I wonder if BMarsh is hanging out with the Cutlers while in Chicago. Rekindled the Bromance.

    • CanadaBear

      The Jets are about to find out that year two with Brandon is very different from year one. Don’t even get me started about year three!

      • Sactowns#1

        I keep hearing this claptrap and have yet to see it materialize. Bears GM and coaches failed BMarsh, he didn’t fail us.

        • willbest

          So did the Broncos and Dolphins…

          • MB30SD

            exactly

        • CanadaBear

          You really don’t think BMarsh’s drama wore everyone out in the locker room. Coaches and players!

        • MB30SD

          Sac, you’re wrong on this one mate. He’ll be out of there by the end of next year… watch.

          It’s called empirical evidence, just take a look at every single team he’s ever played for… exact same pattern maings.

          • Big Mike

            What controversy this time? Oh wait.. the Jets don’t have a fn QB.

          • MikeBrownhadaPosse

            And no Darron Lee yet either.

        • BearDown100393

          He misses Kyle Orton.

          Bmarsh just TALKS when he should SHUT THE FUCK UP.

          It’s already happening, AGAIN.

          http://www.si.com/nfl/2016/07/18/brandon-marshall-ryan-fitzpatrick-free-agent-contact

          Why does Bmarsh feel COMPELLED to say ANYTHING? He just MUST be in the prime light even if it’s at the cost of the team. Could you imagine Bilichick putting up with that?

  • willbest

    Woah, I didn’t realize the Chargers still haven’t signed Bosa. Apparently the guy would rather not get paid than accept offsetting salary provisions.

    • MB30SD

      yup, my buddies are all nervous.

      Whatever, I think the guy’s gonna be a bust (for a high 1st rounder, I don;t think he’ll suck suck, just not live up to his draft position)… but that’s just my gut, I’ve never even seen the guy play a game.

    • AlbertInTucson

      I had completely forgotten about that situation.

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Zimas-&-Zika (ButchDeadLift)

      Ungunleye, I mean, Bosa, is holding out!?

      Who are the other two?

      • willbest

        Darron Lee (Jets) and Joshua Garnett (49ers).

  • CanadaBear

    The talking head landscape is changing at ESPN. Looks like Tom Jackson is also out. They have gotten rid of a lot of dead wood but they aren’t exactly bringing in anything exotic.

    http://www.si.com/nfl/2016/07/26/tom-jackson-leaving-espn-sunday-night-countdown

    • willbest

      Who would be exciting? All Waddle all day?

      • CanadaBear

        Not sure but Moss and Hasselbeck don’t exactly ring my bell. Maybe Woodson will be good.

    • AlbertInTucson

      Jackson had become tiresome.

      • CanadaBear

        No doubt. He never was very exciting. I kinda liked him because he wasn’t Boomer. He didn’t make it all about himself so I appreciated that. Beyond that it’s just one more guy acting like he’s having the time of his life talking football.

        • MB30SD

          I would love that job maings. How much do they pay those dudes, gotta be pretty good money?

          • CanadaBear

            I’m sure it’s 6 figures to start and more if you’re a HOF’er. I wouldn’t last a broadcast. I’d swear on the air about something that happened during the game. I know I would.

            If you could get two friends that love the NFL, are both funny as hell and get along, it could be the greatest broadcasting team ever. Of course the networks would never allow a couple of guys to just riff all game without driving some BS narrative.

          • AlbertInTucson

            Summerall & Madden….?

          • CanadaBear

            About as close as it gets. Tom Brookshier could be really funny. Matt Millen too.

          • AlbertInTucson

            It was his close buddy, Brookshier, who first told Summerall he needed to get off the booze.

          • Huge Bear’s Penis

            I would watch just to here you swear.

          • CanadaBear

            It wouldn’t take long if it was a Bears game. I’d either be gloatin’ with a “Fuck Yeah” or crying a river over a hose job. That would probably include a litany of fucks, cocksuckers, and sons a bitches.

        • AlbertInTucson

          “I kinda liked him because he wasn’t Boomer.”

          Talk about a left-handed compliment!

    • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Zimas-&-Zika (ButchDeadLift)

      At this point, I don’t even know who they SHOULD bring in.

      You know what I would LOVE?

      Bring back Dennis Miller and Keith Oberman and put them together on MNF with Al Michaels.

      That would be MUST watch tv right there.

      • CanadaBear

        Gotta disagree there. Both of those jagoffs make my ass tired. I do like Al Michaels.

        • BearDown100393

          Just have Al Michaels. No commentary. And if that is too boring, have Vin Scully to spin yarns about whatever he wants.

        I know, I know, I keeeed. Was just watching the Bears-Cards game from ’06 and reminiscing.

    • Scharfinator

      Sure, let him retire here.

      I don’t think he’s fit to see the field anymore.

    • CanadaBear

      He had lost a step by the time he left the Beloved. Can’t imagine he has anything left.

      • AlbertInTucson

        That and the kick-off rules have devalued those of his ilk.

  • beninnorcal

    Probably mentioned before, but Bears-Cards ’06 is on youtube in all it’s full length and hig def entirety.
    Urlacher was out of his mind.
    The best part is hearing Theisman and Cornheiser slob all over Leinhart’s knob the whole time, no he’s out of football. They were comparing him to Brady near the end.

    Would be awesome to see our D get back to that kind of domination.

    • CanadaBear

      I love that when the announcers are driving their narrative for the game and the action on the field is the exact opposite.

            Another thing that comes out is just what a sorry excuse of a blocker Mushin Muhammad was.

    • Big Mike

      One of the all time Bears Highlights. Urlacher and the defense just said “fuck it, we’re wining this game”

    • SC Dave

      It is unbelievable what a douche bag Corn holer was.

      • CanadaBear

        It’s not past tense.

        • SC Dave

          He’s still employed?

          • CanadaBear

            On ESPN, of course. Michael Wilbon and him scream at each other every day on Pardon the Interruption. Wilbon’s from Chicago and is a huge Chicago sports fan and I still can’t watch this show.

      Now he’s out of football…. you do realize this was 10 years ago right?

      I’m not arguing Leinart was any good, just that 10 years is a long time for any NFL player!

      • beninnorcal

        Guess I shoulda said he didn’t last long, because I’m pretty sure he’s been gone a few years. Also, compared to where people thought he’d end up as an NFL qb when he came in- not so good.

    • SC Dave

      Urlacher had a performance for the ages. In the fucking zone.

  • Big Mike

    Should the Bears go get Hester? http://chi.247sports.com/Bolt/Atlanta-Falcons-release-All-Pro-kick-returner-Devin-Hester-46432363

    I say yes. Make someone beat him out at a KR.

    • MB30SD

      Sigh. I didn’t expect this from you Mike.

      • Big Mike

        I’m Sentimental. I loved Devin Hester. If he can’t win the spot, then he’s done. Where else should he get a shot? I say give it to him.

        • MB30SD

          ‘Yeah, I’ve kinda just been collecting a check for the last two years.’

          I was done with him the second that became public. cunt.

          • Big Mike

            Oh man.. I forgot about that. I just remember going to 2 games one year and seeing 3 returns for touchdowns. Most fucking excited I’ve ever seen Soldiers was in 2007 I saw the Chiefs game and the Broncos game. He had two returns in Q3. of the Broncos game and it was the greatest moment of any Bears game I’ve ever attended.

            The only defense I’ll make of the comment you quoted, is that 1) he’s not very bright and 2) Didn’t he say that after Lovie was fired and he had no idea how he was going to do anything?

          • MB30SD

            Mike. You. Are. A. High. School. Football. Coach.

            The following quote is part of your job descrip and applies infinitely here, a little disappointing in you, “Excuses are like assholes son… everyone’s got one… and they all stink”

            yup

          • Big Mike

            I know, I know. Fan is short for Fanatic. I blocked it out. I wasn’t making a case to bring him on, after you reminded me of those comments. More making excuses for why my first reaction was to give him a shot. I’ve played kids with heart, over kids with talent. Never had a kid mail it in. They all now they have a shot at PT (on special teams or in blow outs)

          • SC Dave

            You’d forgive him handily if he ran back five kicks this year.

            But he won’t

          • MB30SD

            I’ll never forgive him for that shit. Treason. Some people get killed for that… in some of those unsavory places.

            He’d be lucky to run one back. When those guys loose their wheels, it happens fast and unceremoniously.

    Two ISIS fighters charged a 86 year old priest during the middle of Catholic Mass in France and stabbed him to death screaming Allah Akbar.

    So today’s terror did not involve guns.

    • CanadaBear

      Brave souls attacking an 86 year-old. I wish we could round up all the fundamentalist muslims and send them where they want to go, back to the 7th century.

      • MB30SD
      • Big Mike

        CB, I’m relieved you said fundamentalist. Couldn’t agree more. We might want to package some loony bird creationists (although not nearly as harmful as terrorist muslims),

        • CanadaBear

          I try not to lump people together but fundamentalists for any religion try to take away other peoples rights they don’t agree with and try to take everyone back in time. Fuck You to all of them. I met a lot of Muslims when I was in Calgary. They were like everyone else if not a little nicer than most.

          • Big Mike

            When religion starts trying to “win” by denigrating other religions, or imposing their way of life on everyone else, it goes into the “oh fuck off” category.

          • CanadaBear

            Couldn’t agree more. 12 years of Catholic school being a punching bag for nuns and priests didn’t exactly make me a devout Christian. Just try to be nice to people and treat them the way you want to be treated. Pretty simple. Just like mom said repeatedly growing up.

          • Big Mike

            I believe I have one ear lobe longer than the other from being pulled out of my seat and taken to the front of the class, or out to the hallway by nuns. One day I switched seats. This in and of itself aggravated a nun. As she was dragging me out of the classroom, she asked why I switched seats. I told her that my left earlobe needed and rest and the right one was still fresh.

          • MB30SD

            Hahahahaha

            So what you are saying is there is no absolute morality?

          • Big Mike

            Every major religion has at its core a set of principles that are moral and are very similar. It is how man interprets them, then how crazy MFers interpret them, or assholes pervert them so they can live in deca-million$ homes (which then means it is all about feeding the money beast).

      This really isn’t terrorism though. This is the sort of wonderful diversity Muslims bring their Christian neighbors on the regular throughout the Asia and Africa. Its only news worthy because it was in France.

        Exactly. The true face of Islam.

          hmmmm I understand the anger.

          But I wonder how they feel when they read their news and see americans chop off their baby’s hands cuz of a bible verse, drown their 4 kids cuz of “post-partem” or shoot up movie theaters just for the fuck of it.

          And just earlier this year a guy not 15 mins from where I live began hacking to death (with an axe) his ex GF on the streets.

          They probably shake their heads and mutter, “Crazy Christians…”

          • MB30SD

            Fuck all yalls, I’m jewish!

          • willbest

            Yes, it was all Christian impulses. Sadly, Jesus didn’t leave us a nice catch phrase to shout off when we do stuff in his name so anybody that has any relationship with Christ is just assumed to be doing it in his name.

            No dear sir, they have good reason to hate us for toppling their governments, and hitting their villages with drones because a HVT happens to be in one of the mudhuts, but we do none of that because our leader says he was commanded by Christ. We have good ole fashion secular reasons for that. We want stability in the region because it costs $20/bl to extract the oil there but $40/bl in the good ole US of A.

            Meanwhile over in Pakistan, they murder a government officials because they thought that perhaps when a Christian woman and a Muslim woman got into it at the water well, and the Muslim woman accused the Christian woman of blasphemy that perhaps executing the Christian woman wasn’t the way to go. And I don’t really blame them for killing the guys. They were advocating for a radically progressive form of Islam.

            Of course, over in JC Land he is telling you to submit to your government if it doesn’t prevent you from submitting to God. And his advice as it relates to non-believers is to give them the good news and then leave them to their eternal damnation if they reject it, but keep praying that they will find him.

            But please continue on with your moral equivalence routine because 800 years ago some Christians launched a counter offensive against the Muslims that had been slaughtering them for 450 years.

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Zimas-&-Zika (ButchDeadLift)

            Moral equvilance?

            What’s worse, a failed christian (McVeigh?) or a failed Muslim?

            Ppl do crazy shit in the name of Christ all the time, and I’m not even thinking about the crusades or the inquisitions.

            That only shows me that theocracies, no matter the religion, oppress humans no matter what.

            Let me ask you a question:

            Who does more crazy shit in THIS country? Muslim-americans, or Christian-Americans (and let’s not count “Nation of Islam” cuz that seems like an American cult, like the KKK)?

            I agree that objectively, Islam seems INHERENTLY violent while Christianity in theory is supposed to “turn the other cheek” (Just look at how many cheeks we turned starting from over-cheeking the British!) but billions of muslims do not condone terrorists anymore than millions of americans didn’t condone the Vietnam and Iraqi war.

            Ppl can’t cite other countries when it comes to demographics because those are totally distinctive societies with their own unique cultural background, esp 3rd world or non-western or theocratic/aristocratic nations that naturally are gonna be abhorrent to OUR capitalist “christian” values.

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Zimas-&-Zika (ButchDeadLift)

            That being said, I don’t think what Trump is proposing about banning Syrian refuges is totally crazy. Trump himself might be a bigot, and is appealing to that resentment, no doubt, but I’m looking at it more pragmatically.

            The refuges themselves OBVIOUSLY are not gonna be fans of the oppressors who they’re escaping, any more than ex-Russians/East Berliners hating communism more than even the west (Ayn Rand, etc). And they themselves might make good operatives for the CIA (I know I would try to recruit them for counter spy shit).

            HOWEVER, how about their children?

            What if their children grow up being harassed by americans (not an unlikely scenario) or just are losers?

            Then suddenly they can become home-grown terrorists. That would be my bigger fear.

            Non-muslim immigrant children might just turn to good ole crime, but a disgruntled muslim has the chance of turning into a terrorist, which is a much more lethal malcontent.

            And that’s not even talking about if the FBI or whomever can properly screen “sleeper” agents snuck into the refuges.

            An issue we must seriously debate as Americans.

          • SC Dave

            Muslims that do not condone, or actually commit, the murder the infidels are not practicing Islam per it’s originators instructions and example.

            Christians that commit violence and oppress others are not following the lessons and example of Jesus.

            Is the difference really so hard to understand?

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Zimas-&-Zika (ButchDeadLift)

            But within their own communities they do NOT condone it. And many are not sympathetic. But then we get into semantics about who is or isn’t a “Muslim”.

            Once upon a time Jews stoned homosexuals or sold off their daughters into slavery, but their Rabbis eventually started “civilizing” their texts through more sympathetic interpretations.

            Maybe, just maybe, that can happen with Islam. But THEY must do it themselves.
            What’s the alternative? We invade Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Iran, Afghanistan, etc?

            Do you know any Muslims, SC?

          • Cormonster

            I grew up right next door to a Muslim family from Lebanon who had immigrated. They were all very nice to us, but the women were all treated like shit. The Mom, four daughters, and son’s wife (arranged marriage, she moved to US at 18 for the wedding) rarely left the house. The girls went to school, but spent the rest of their time in the house, even in the summer. They rarely were allowed outside to even play in the yard. I know the two oldest daughters took off and moved into women’s shelters right after they graduated HS. Don’t know what happened to the others, cause we moved. I always felt bad for them. Not a good first impression as a kid.

          • Cormonster

            McVeigh was an agnostic, but was raised Catholic.

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Zimas-&-Zika (ButchDeadLift)

            Exactly, Corm.
            To many, he would be considered a “failed Catholic”.
            Just as to many muslims, the terrorists are considered “failed Muslims”

            Or misguided/radical.

            There’s bitter theological wars taking place in Islam itself (Shiite v Sunni, but even within those there are factions) and for the world’s sake, we better hope that cooler heads prevail in those theological battles or it really will be WW3.

          • willbest

            1) Okay, I want to be fair to you, because it seems to me that you are saying there is no difference between a person who does bad things and happens to be Christian and a person who does bad things because they are Christian.

            Does the following also apply then? There is no difference beween a person who does bad things and happens to be BLM and a person who does bad things because they are BLM.

            For example, if I come home to my wife cheating on me and beat her to death the fact that I am Christian is about as relevant to the crime as the fact that I am a Bears fan. You seem to be trying to merge the two.

            2) You can’t get to billions of Muslims without other countries.

            3) You might find this an interesting read. Muslims are substantially over represented in the prison population based on general population size.

            The difference is that the Koran sanctions it.

          • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Zimas-&-Zika (ButchDeadLift)

            And yet there aren’t billions of terrorist from Singapore to Saudi Arabia.

            I’m no fan of fundamentalism or theocracies, but the U.S. a Christian nation, has committed just as brutal atrocities.

            We seem to be over our savagery (genocide and slavery) but we’re still killing a lot of “collateral damage” even as we speak.

            “He who is without sin can cast the first stone…”

            If Islam the religion itself IS the issue, as it seems you’re arguing, then how do you feel we should counter its 700 yr old message which is ingrained to the very core of half the world’s population?

    Around the league…

    -Boldin signed with the Meows. YES, THAT Boldin, MB.

    -Eric Berry might be a free agent next year. Want to spend some of that roll-over cash, sign a Dline and Berry, set!

    -LeVeon Bell suspended for 4 games, crushing many early FF drafters and why I hold my draft mid august.

    -One team I’m keeping my eye on is the Ravens and their TEs.

    They seem to have 4 good ones : Ben Watson (who they just signed), Maxx Williams, Pitta and Crockett Gilmore.

    I can’t imagine them riding with 4, and whoever gets cut should be nabbed immediately by the Bears as a #2 (and for CHEAP).

    There might be a few teams that have an extra OG/OT that should upgrade our Oline, but I can’t think of any off the top of head.

    • Swing Tackle of Destiny

      hold the draft on Labor Day

      • AlbertInTucson

        We do ours the Saturday before Labor Day.

      • http://t.co/MsJnMxjrmd Zimas-&-Zika (ButchDeadLift)

        I usually hold it 3rd game of PS. It’s like two-for-one.
        We can watch the game while drafting, and last about as long lol

        Also, every team sits their top stars after the 3rd PS game, so injuries are minimal between 3rd quarter of 3rd PS game and start of season.

        But, we’ll see how it goes. Hopefully Irish can get in on it this year, but he’ll have to drink a few red bulls or coke binge to be up.
