I have watched every game this season and there is something that seems to be missing to me, one thing that we have had for years, and that is our pass rush. We are not getting much pressure on the QB and when we have, its been coming via the bitz, something we used to rarely do. I dont mind brining the blitz but is it because we cant get pressure any other way. through 4 games we have 6 sacks, which is a sad number considering that here are some players with 7+ sacks at this point, our Leading Pass rusher bassed on sacks is our LB, DJ William,who leads the team with two. Where did our pass rush from last year go. I understand the Melton is now out, but he wasnt exactly forcing any big plays from what I had seen of him. is the loss of Hot Rod what it is or is our pass rush just off to a slow start.
as well, I beleive most would agree with me that the cover two we run, is bassed off the pass rush, not allowing QBs to find the holes, and exploit them, I understand we have begun to run a more hybrid scheme with tilman and Jenings steping up huge, but still, if we cant get pressure on the QB, our defense is not as good as last year.
So, for you fellow Bears fans, where is the problem. is it the loss of Melton, Peppers getting Older, Shea not being ready, Wooton regressing, loss of Idonije, Loss of our Coaching staff. some type of combo, or is is something differnt.
