Bears Were Historically Injured in 2016

| August 7th, 2017

Woke up this morning with an email from Africa. That’s right, folks, THE Reverend Dave has made his first contribution to DBB in a monkey’s age. Dave, I have to assume, is the only person reading Peter King’s MMQB on The Dark Continent. Here’s what interested him in the lengthy camp column:

a. Chicago led the NFL last year with 155.1 Adjusted Games Lost. That’s a metric that accounts for injuries to starters and important situational players by counting not only games missed but also games where players were at less than 100 percent because of injury. Chicago had the highest total in FO’s entire injury database, dating back to 2000.

Two things I think about this:

  • The 2016 Bears simply weren’t as bad as many people think. They were historically injured.
  • When you understand that, and understand that the odds of them being historically injured again are not good, you should be able to understand my points about Trubisky. This is the ideal situation to bring a rookie QB into. Improved defense. Strong running game. Good TEs. WRs who will thrive in a short passing attack.

  • Reverend Dave mails in his sermon on crab racing. (And I mean mails in!)
  • Jeff picks the Bears out of tradition. He really believes the injuries at linebacker and inability to keep contain will lead to Kaepernick running wild Sunday.
