Chicago Bears: Tarik Cohen needs to be more involved

The Chicago Bears offense has struggled generating explosive plays through the first two games of the season, and Tarik Cohen’s lack of involvement is partially to blame.

Bears Rush Report 2018: Week 2 vs the Seahawks

Bears Rush Report 2018: Week 2 vs the Seahawks

Most of us had a feeling that the Bears pass rush would take it to the Seahawks offensive line, and we were correct. The Bears had a whopping 6 sacks on the evening, with a number of other pressures as well. This was as dominant of a defensive performance as we have seen since the Lovie Smith administration. One of the most impressive things about the pass rush to this point, is that 3 of the sacks were of the much sought after strip-sack variety. Let’s get to the fun, shall we? Week 2 vs the Seahawks Sack 1 - First quarter 11:24 (3rd & 2) - Aaron Lynch While Aaron Lynch gets the credit...
