The DBB team is evaluating the entire organization at this well-placed, exactly midseason bye week. The catch? Each of us is limited to ONE SENTENCE for each position group. Today we switch to special teams.
Jeff: Yes, the cupboard is bare at wide receiver due to injury but it’s been at kicker (and Mike Glennon) where the Bears have displayed their most glaring evaluative weakness.
Andrew: Barth just isn’t getting the job done.
Data: Connor Barth is terrible, but that’s something we’ve known since before he signed with the Bears 15 months ago.
DBB Grade: D
Jeff: Yes, I spend way too much time thinking about and studying punters but POD has improved his directional kicking, hang time and placement in 2017.
Andrew: Pat O’Donnell just might be having the best year of his career.
