Bills vs. Bears: Five questions with Windy City Gridiron ity Gridiron to find out what we can expect to see from the Chicago Bears this season. Their second-year quarterback Authentic Josh Allen Jersey , the only linebacker taken before Tremaine Edmunds, one of the better safety duos in the league and more:Q: Have you seen the step year 1 to year 2 from Mitch Trubisky?A: Truthfully, we haven’t seen much of Trubisky in the preseason. New head coach Matt Nagy made a bit of a stir with the local media by deciding to sit his starters for last week’s scrimmage against Kansas City. Personally, I don’t really care about the preseason, but it was a bit of a surprise given the lack of game experience Trubisky has in his career. I think that the Bears are trying their best to not show anything on film to Green Bay as they try to come out and start off Nagy’s career in the best way possible - a win against the rivals in green and yellow. What I’d like to see this year is a growing command of the new offense, the ability to be a multi-dimensional threat, and building a rapport with all the new weapons surrounding him. Say what you will about general manager Ryan Pace, but he went out and surrounded Trubisky with professional receivers after he was throwing to replacement-level players all 2017. Q: Being what most people thought as the best linebacker in the 2018 draft, what are your expectations for Roquan Smith this season? A: After a holdout to start his career, Roquan is a bit behind the rest of the team in getting ready for the season. The Bears have two inside linebackers that will hold down the fort until he can get up to game speed and take over one of the starting jobs, so it’s not like the Bears coaching staff has to rush him out there. I think the biggest thing that Roquan is going to bring to the team in his rookie year is speed and the ability to make game-changing plays. The one thing about the Bears defense under defensive coordinator Vic Fangio is a lack of turnovers. Increasing the team speed usually leads to more impactful plays. In the long run, I think the goal is for Smith to have the level of impact that Patrick Willis did for Fangio’s San Francisco defenses. That’s a high bar but an appropriate one for a linebacker taken in the top ten. Q: What do you think the revamped group of pass-catchers will do for the overall offense and Trubisky’s growth?A: I love it. It was the perfect set of signings on paper. I had been pining for Allen Robinson the moment he went down with his ACL injury – which is admittedly a weird thing to say. My thinking at the time was that the Jaguars would let him walk and a true number 1 wide receiver would hit the market in a time of need for the Bears. Amazingly, Robinson was targeted and signed and my offseason kicked off to great happiness. The Bears also inked Trey Burton from the Eagles and Taylor Gabriel from the Falcons. Burton is tabbed to fill the Travis Kelce role in the new Bears offense while Gabriel adds a speed element the Bears haven’t had in years. Both guys seemed like perfect fits for their roles. In fact, Burton was such an obvious target to Bears fans that by the time he signed, it was met with a collective “yeah Womens Jason Croom Jersey , of course.” Finally, the Bears drafted Anthony Miller in the second round of the draft this year out of Memphis. This guy is going to turn some heads and has the inside track of becoming a universal fan favorite in short order. The Bears had arguably the worst group of pass catchers in the league in 2017 but now have an exciting group of playmakers set to execute a new, fresh scheme and I’m all in on them. That’s only going to aid in Trubisky’s growth and if nothing else, can act as a mask for his growing pains. Q: The Bears have one of the better young safety tandems in the league, what do you expect from Amos and Jackson that will bring them to the next level? A: Adrian Amos is a solid player who seems to grade out really well by the Pro Football Focus metrics. He doesn’t stand out to me as a dynamic playmaker but rather a guy who knows his role and does his job with consistency. That’s a very good characteristic in a safety. The playmaking side of the duo will likely come from Eddie Jackson. The Alabama product fell in the draft due to an injury in 2016 but was able to compete and win the FS job last year. He had two TDs in the Panthers game a year ago but finished the year with only two interceptions. I’d expect him to make a leap this year to make a few more plays as he settles into the defense. Having a solid duo on the back end is such a refreshing change of pace as the Bears safety play has been an Achilles heel for years, with a steady stream of disappointing mid-round picks cycling on and off the roster. It appears the Bears have finally achieved continuity, now it’s time for them to become playmakers. Q: What are your hopes for the Bears this season leading up to when the Bears travel to Buffalo in week 9?A: If you had to pick an easier half of the schedule, it would appear to be the first half for the Bears. Interestingly enough, the Bears play the entire AFC East in four straight weeks coming out of their Week 5 bye. In general, I’d like to see the Bears defense establish itself as a good unit with the ability to take over games. I’d like to see Trubisky take command of the new offense and be able to use the skill sets of all the playmakers surrounding him. Overall, I’d like to see this team put a competitive product on the field and win more games than it loses meaning a 4-3 or, ~*gasp*~, 5-2 record by the time they pack their bags for Buffalo.Five Green Bay Packers to watch against the Buffalo Bills The Buffalo Bills face their second consecutive NFC North opponent on Sunday, traveling to Wisconsin to take on the Green Bay Packers. For the second straight week, the Bills are big underdogs. For the second straight week http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/j ... lls-jersey , the opposing team has far more household names on the roster than the Bills do.Green Bay is a talented squad that boasts one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks. However, he isn’t the only player on the roster worth watching on Sunday. Here are the players wearing navy, gold, and tan to watch on Sunday. (THROWBACKS ARE FUN!)QB Aaron RodgersIf the Bills want any chance at victory on Sunday, they’ll have to keep Rodgers in check. A knee injury suffered during Green Bay’s first game of the season hasn’t kept him from succeeding, but it has limited his trademark mobility. Rodgers has completed 66.4% of his passes on the season for 832 yards and 6 touchdowns. He has yet to throw an interception on the season. He does a phenomenal job of distributing the ball around to all of his weapons, but his offensive line does allow him to be hit. He’s already been sacked 10 times on the year. If Buffalo’s pass rushers can make Rodgers feel their presence, it will increase the team’s chances of a second straight upset.RB Aaron JonesGreen Bay’s number one running back was suspended for the first two games of the season for a violation of the NFL’s substance abuse policy, but he returned to action last week against the Washington Redskins. Although he only played on 17 snaps, he carried the ball 6 times for 42 yards and added 1 reception for 5 yards on the day. He is an extremely talented back who totaled 470 scrimmage yards on just 90 touches last season. While he was eased back into the lineup last weekend, head coach Mike McCarthy will probably try to deploy his more dynamic rusher in a greater capacity this weekend. WR Randall CobbThe jack-of-all-trades wide receiver may not put up the eye-popping numbers as consistently anymore, but he is still a versatile, dangerous weapon. He can play outside, he can win matchups in the slot, and he can come out of the backfield; he’s even capable of serving as a running back at times. Cobb is second on the Packers in receptions (17) Authentic Tremaine Edmunds Jersey , receiving yards (195), and yards per reception (11.5), and given his ability to line up anywhere, he could be used to exploit favorable matchups wherever the Packers see fit. Look for them to try to isolate him on any of a trio of inexperienced players in Tremaine Edmunds, Taron Johnson, and Ryan Lewis this weekend.LT David BakhtiariBills defensive end Jerry Hughes was a one-man wrecking crew last week, as he totaled 15 quarterback pressures all by himself. Bahktiari is the man tasked with slowing Hughes this week, and he will have his hands full. If Green Bay chooses to leave him on an island with Hughes, Buffalo’s top edge rusher should be able to use his superior athleticism to beat the sixth-year tackle around the edge. If they need to give their left tackle help, they risk allowing one of Buffalo’s other defensive linemen (Trent Murphy? Kyle Williams?) to run rampant. Bahktiari will need to win one-on-one against Hughes.LB Clay MatthewsSpeaking of pass rushers who can completely take over a game, the Packers’ veteran linebacker is still among the league’s best sack masters. While much of the focus on Matthews so far has been on two dubious roughing the passer calls, he is still a force to be reckoned with defensively. He’s off to a slow start this season, totaling only 4 tackles and 0 sacks (thanks to the aforementioned penalties), but a failure to account for Matthews will surely lead to a long day for Josh Allen. The Bills will have to keep Matthews in check on Sunday.
