Will We Finally See Wide Receivers/Tight Ends Get Involved?

In the Bears’ Week 3 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, it was almost as if their wide receivers and tight ends were invisible on the field. Although they were very helpful in the running game, Chicago’s pass catchers had very little impact in their air attack. Out of the 15 passes quarterback Mike Glennon completed, only three went to wide receivers and tight ends for a total of 28 yards. We don’t know for sure if Glennon just doesn’t trust his receivers, or if that’s something that was specifically being told to him by the coaching staff to do. Regardless, Chicago’s passing game will find it very hard to flourish by just throwing the ball to their running backs out of the backfield against Green Bay’s seventh-ranked pass defense.
