Grading the 5 Chicago Bears offensive linemen vs the Miami Dolphins

I went back and rewatched the game pitting the Chicago Bears against the Miami Dolphins. My focus was on the play of Chicago's starting offensive line and here are my individual grades from their performance. I've graded the Chicago Bears offensive line play here on Windy City Gridiron in the past and if you're unfamiliar with how I do what I do, here's a quick recap. I grade on a simple plus/minus system. There is no baseline, there are no bonus points for really doing your job or double negatives for failing miserably, because frankly coaches only care about one thing. Results. You do...

Ten Thoughts on the NFL: Chicago Bears and beyond

I have some NFL thoughts. Ten of them to be exact. Check out what I have and leave a few of your own in the comment section. 1) Just when we think the Cleveland Browns have turned a corner they lose to the previously winless Jacksonville Jaguars. And just when quarterback Brian Hoyer seemed to have established himself the The QB in Cleveland, he goes 16 of 41 with a fumble and an interception. It's time to warm up the Johnny Manziel stories again. 2) One more nugget from that game. I've always thought Denard Robinson could be effective at running back. After a career high 127 yards rushing,...

NFL Power rankings: Where are the inconsistent, maddening and infuriating Chicago Bears this week?

We'll periodically peek in around the interwebs to see where the Chicago Bears are ranked in the eyes of the various Power Rankers out there. As you can imagine the Bears are dropping... Lately when the Chicago Bears are driving national chatter it's usually not a good thing. They've only been to one playoff since their Super Bowl loss in 2006 and that playoff defeat was as crushing a loss as SBXLI. Being a Bears fan hasn't been very fun lately. Their locker room melt down after the loss on Sunday made national news, their inconsistent play this season has been a national point of...

Miami Dolphins stock watch following Bears game: Who is up? Who is down?

The Miami Dolphins beat the Chicago Bears convincingly on Sunday. Who had their stock rise or fall for the Dolphins from the game? The Miami Dolphins took the game to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and they dominated in a way that the 13 point final difference felt like it should have been a 30 point difference. The Dolphins seemed to be able to do whatever they wanted at times during the game, even if it did not always work. The Dolphins were exciting, unpredictable, and effective. It was the first 60-minute game the team has played this year, and it worked out perfectly for Miami. Stock Up:...

The Bears Den: October 21, 2014 - Chicago Bears week 8 news & Bears-Dolphins notes

Dante Rosario caught the ball! And he will name it George, and will hug it, and pet it, and squeeze it. Marc Trestman needs to ‘fix it’ - Brian Hanley: Bears head coach needs to stop coddling and take control of his locker room starting this week, a sure tipping point if the Bears still think playoffs are possible. Trestman has to get much tougher on his underachieving players - Rick Morrissey: There’s more to the game than X’s and O’s. There’s the matter of dealing with large, talented human beings who, because they have been coddled their entire lives, believe they can do...

6 Observations from Miami Dolphins' Convincing 27-14 Victory Over Chicago Bears

Six observations and a few notes from the Miami Dolphins victory over the Chicago Bears. The Miami Dolphins saved their season yesterday with a convincing 27-14 victory over the Chicago Bears.

Here are some observations and a few notes on the game: 1. Dolphins started fast despite going three-and-out on the opening possession The first offensive play of the game was a sack on Ryan Tannehill. The first possession...

Bears falling apart at the seams, Trestman at fault?

Dating back to last season the Bears have lost four straight games at Soldier Field. It now appears that they are losing their season and team chemistry. I'm not going to do a grades post today because what's the point? The team lost, Jay Cutler committed two turnovers and Jordan Mills struggled again. The play calling was erratic and Jeremiah Ratliff was one of the lone bright spots of the game. Overall, it was a failing grade. But special teams brought two kicks out past the twenty, so maybe they get a passing grade for one of the few times this year. The real story of yesterday's game...

The Bears Den: October 20, 2014 - Chicago Bears vs Miami Dolphins news & reaction

Everything is awesome, everything is cool when you're part of a team! Poor 1st half puts Bears in hole they can't dig out of - Rich Campbell: The talent is there and the offense has shown flashes of putting it all together, but stretches like Sunday's first half torpedo the momentum, presenting such questions as why Matt Forte carried the ball only twice before halftime. Tannehill carves up Mel Tucker’s men through the air, on the ground - Mark Potash: The Bears’ inability to contain Ryan Tannehill and the zone-read was an ominous sign for a defense with a suddenly heavier burden...

Bears Vs Dolphins: Notes, Scribbles, and Things Jotted Down

We're going over our notes from yesterday's debacle against the Dolphins. There are several things that just shouldn't happen during a football game if you're a good team, and especially a good offensive team, if that's your coaching and personnel focus. Let's go over them one by one, because the only way to really look at this game is the giant clusterbleep that it turned out as. Let's start with first downs. Getting thirteen first downs by virtue of offensive performance does not get the job done (and picking up a first down on a penalty doesn't help anything when you get nothing out of...

Chicago Bears Injury Update: Kyle Fuller breaks his hand and suffers hip pointer

Not only were the Chicago Bears dominated today by the Miami Dolphins, they saw their top rookie, Kyle Fuller, leave the game with an injury. Well this is some troubling news... More bad news for the Bears: stud rookie CB Kyle Fuller broke his hand and suffered a hip pointer today. Hard to play corner w/1 hand...— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) October 20, 2014 Even though it would prove difficult to play cornerback with one hand, I think the hip pointer is the more concerning injury. Depending on the severity of the injury, a hip pointer can keep a player out for a few days to...

Brandon Marshall appears to call out Jay Cutler after Dolphins game; Kyle Long targets fans

The Chicago Bears lost their first two games of the year in Soldier Field leading into today's game against the Miami Dolphins. The winning percentage - and attitudes - did not improve after the Dolphins beat down the Bears. The Miami Dolphins came out hot against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and did not layoff on the beat down until quarterback Ryan Tannehill was taking two kneel downs to kill the clock and the game. On the final Bears offensive play, wide receiver Brandon Marshall could not come down with a pass in the endzone. He shoved Miami cornerback Cortland Finnegan after the play,...

Dolphins vs Bears final score: Dolphins defeat Bears 27-14

The MIami Dolphins have completed their Week 7 contest against the Chicago Bears The Miami Dolphins visited the Chicago Bears this weekend in a Week 7 contest. They leave Chicago with a 27-14 victory. The Dolphins won the opening coin toss and elected to receive, something that have not done this year. Typically deferring, the Dolphins looked to come out and get the offense in rhythm early. Instead, a sack on first down headlined a quick three-and-out for Miami. The Bears did not have any better success on their opening drive, punting the ball right back to Miami. Miami came out with...

Bears Vs Dolphins Final Score: Bears Routed at Home in 27-14 Loss

Bears Vs Dolphins Final Score: Bears Routed at Home in 27-14 Loss

The Bears suffered their third home loss of the year, and still are looking for that first win after a loss to the Dolphins. The Bears are still searching for that elusive first win at home after the Dolphins came into Soldier Field and punched them square in the face. The Dolphins' read-option gave the Bears fits all day as Ryan Tannehill had possibly the best game of his young career - certainly the best game of his season, throwing for two touchdowns and escaping a fourth-and-one for 30 yards and a first down deep into Bears' territory. He started the scoring by finding Charles Clay all...
