The Bears beat a Jets team that they were better than. They won a game they should have.
This is hardly worth celebrating Womens Prince Amukamara Jersey , save for the fact that there have been no “should have won” games in the past couple of seasons.No games were givens. While they won here and there, it was always less than sure that they could do it.The Bears are becoming a team that can take care of business when they should, which is a small victory in the grand scheme of the NFL world.The Bears need to learn to win and they still need to learn to finish games but so long as they can keep winning the games they should, eventually they will start winning games they aren’t expected to.Sunday’s game wasn’t without its flaws. The defense didn’t get a takeaway. The Bears offense once again struggled at times. The Bears are getting better and they have another chance to beat a struggling team this week.Stock upBryce Callahan, CB - Callahan was a little bit of everywhere Sunday. He was credited with three passes defensed, a sack, a TFL and a QB hit. He played great and has been for most of the season. The question is becoming can the Bears find a way to sign him to a contract extension?Anthony Miller, WR - Miller has been solid most of the year but he is finally getting open more consistently and Mitch Trubisky is finding him. Maybe not as deep down the field as we’d like to see and maybe still not consistently, but he is getting more plays. He had 37 yards and a great TD. The TD came on a play where Trubisky had to change Miller’s route and they communicated and made the play; a sign of offensive growth.Jordan Howard, RB - Howard finally started to make some head way, breaking for his longest run of the season (24 yards) and helped salt away the victory with some key runs in the fourth quarter. The weather is starting to change and it’s good to see Howard maybe finally getting going http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com/adrian-amos-jersey , and see the coaching staff putting him in better chances to succeed.Stock downEddie Jackson, S - He didn’t play horribly Sunday but I am putting him here because his biggest error, an unnecessary roughness penalty, directly led to the Jets’ only touchdown of the day, and could have ended the drive.James Daniels, OG - I’m kind of struggling to find three guys whose performance I really didn’t like, so I’m getting very nit picky here. Daniels did fine as a first time starter, but there were some plays where he got beat or looked like he didn’t quite see where he needed to help out. It was a fine first start and I have no doubt he will improve, but he wasn’t an anchor out there.Leonard Floyd, OLB - Again, this is kind of nit picky Womens Aaron Lynch Jersey , but this was a largely clean game by the Bears, just a few misfires from being an even bigger margin of victory. Floyd played pretty well, he had some pressures, but no hits or sacks, again. Floyd got close a few times, but he has to start finishing those plays, the Bears can’t rely on their blitzing corners and Khalil Mack alone for sacks. Floyd has to start finishing these plays.Which players stuck out to you? For better or worse?Five Questions with Baltimore Beatdown: Ray Lewis is the “greatest linebacker in NFL history” Football is back! Yeah, it is just the preseason, but still, it means we’re close to meaningful games. We’re taking this opportunity to kick off our 5 Questions With series to visit with Baltimore Beatdown’s Kyle Barber to talk Ravens football and where the state of the team is heading into 2018. Windy City Gridiron: 1. The Ravens and Bears were chosen for the HOF Game because Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher played their entire careers for their respective franchises. What does Ray Lewis mean to the Ravens franchise and its fans?Baltimore Beatdown: Oh man, this is far too great a question for a short response. Ray Lewis set the tone for the return of football to the hard-working city of Baltimore. He was the franchise’s second pick in team history after Jonathan Ogden. When talking about leadership and the role of a locker room Authentic Tarik Cohen Jersey , Ray stands on the peak, not because of his empowering speeches and roaring on the field but how he reunited football to the great city of Baltimore. He put this city on his shoulders, he hoisted two Lombardi Trophy’s and retired as the greatest linebacker in NFL history. Speaking of the Hall of Fame Game, Ravens defensive coordinator Don Martindale wants the team to honor Ray during the exhibition. “In honor of who’s getting inducted into the Hall of Fame, Ray,” Martindale said. “I want our defense to play with his effort, his enthusiasm and his love for the game.” This may be a more heated matchup than most preseason contests.*Editor’s note: I’m sure Kyle meant to say “one of the” greatest linebackers of all-time. I mean, does he know what site he’s talking to?WCG: 2.a. The Ravens drafted Lamar Jackson with the last pick of the first round in the draft this spring. There are reports that he’s got a package of plays for him to be on the field at the same time as Joe Flacco. What’s the plan for Jackson this year? BB: Lamar Jackson will not be starting for the Ravens in 2018, barring Joe Flacco incapable of stepping onto the field. The plan for Lamar is to develop into a professional-level quarterback. The Ravens are not in a rush for Lamar to play this season.WCG: 2.b. Honestly, what percentage of Ravens fans are ready to run Flacco out of town and start the Jackson era right now?BB: Some want it. I’d guess around 20-30%. Some are flat-out tired of Flacco, but most know the circumstances surrounding Joe and the reasons for the lack of success post-2012. After watching both quarterbacks in camp the past two weeks it’s clear Joe should not be anywhere else other than starting for Baltimore this year.WCG: 3. Does Alex Collins have a chance to be the bell cow back for this offense or is it a full committee with Buck Allen and Kenneth Dixon? Does Dixon have a shot to claim the starting job if he can recover from injury? BB: I’ve been an avid Javorius Allen fan from his draft day Womens Trey Burton Jersey , but I don’t expect him to steal a larger role than last seasons. He’s a great change-of-pace player and his skill set allows he and Alex Collins to work off one another and attack defenses with unique styles. That being said, Collins is the starter until further notice. He’s produced impressive plays all last season and in this year’s camp thus far. WCG: 4. The Ravens completely remade their wide receiver group from a year ago, signing Michael Crabtree and John Brown (after making a very ethically-questionable about-face on Ryan Grant) and drafting two rookies in Jordan Lasley and Jaleel Scott. Who’s playing where and what should we expect from these guys this season?BB: The receiving unit is real-deal this season. Training camp has been electric this year with John Brown hauling in a deep pass on a near-daily basis. Crabtree’s pulled down multiple red-zone touchdowns and Willie Snead IV in the slot forces defenses to respect three separate pass-catchers on the Ravens roster. Tie in the rookies and the Ravens suddenly look capable of improving their 29th ranked passing offense.WCG: 5. Let’s swing over to the defense. The Ravens D has consistently been the better side of the ball throughout the history of the franchise. Should we continue to pencil them in for another good year or is there cause for concern? Who are the guys that lead this unit? BB: The Ravens defense isn’t going anywhere out of the usual. They have a strong cast of household names including, Terrell Suggs, Eric Weddle, C.J. Mosley, Tony Jefferson and Brandon Williams. The development of Marlon Humphrey and the healthy return of SCB Tavon Young leave the Ravens with a surplus of cornerbacks for the first time in ages. I expect Baltimore to continue their turnover-creating ways in 2018. Thank you Kyle and Baltimore Beatdown!If you use the Twitter machine, consider following me @gridironborn
