As Boomer pointed out in his Report Card, Bowman nearly cost the Bears the game with his horse collar tackle on Torrey Smith and subsequent penalty. He also added a special teams penalty and did very little to prove himself in Charles Tillman’s absence. Bowman has become increasingly expendable as both the defense and special teams units have continued to struggle throughout the season. With Kelvin Hayden, Tillman and Jennings all due to become free agents as well, Bowman sits pretty far down on the priority list.
There’s not much more that can be said about Wright’s increasingly poor play this season. He and Chris Conte have been a complete embarrassment in the Bears’ secondary and he appears to have regressed in his fourth season with the team. At 25-years-old, Wright technically should have some years left in the NFL, but they shouldn’t be as a starter for anybody. The Bears helped create this problem by not giving Wright any competition at the safety position, so if they plan to keep him they need to at least invest in another potential starter at the position.
This is an easy one. Scott has yet to touch the field this season and has been supplanted by Eben Britton as the team’s swing tackle. He’s had a couple of different stints now with the Bears but a third one will be out of the question. There’s just no use for this guy anymore.
