The Chicago Bears have gotten two straight strong performances from Charles Leno

After succeeding in Week One, Charles Leno got another manageable test in Week two. Leno wins with quick feet, length and speed, and struggles against power. Lorenzo Carter is almost as much of an off of the ball linebacker as he is pass rusher, and Carter wins almost solely with speed.

With that in mind, it is not a huge surprise that Leno was able to put together his second impressive performance in as many weeks.

Charles Leno

Leno did not allow a single pressure, and of all pass rushers, Carter had the highest seperation from the quarterback according to NextGenStats. Carter did get on the stat sheet, but it was from rushing on the other side.

Bobby Massie

Massie was not quite as clean as Leno. To start, Leno was better in run blocking. Beyond that, Massie allowed two pressures, one to Lorenzo Carter, and one to Markus Golden. Still, for the majority of the day Golden was quiet, and that was a much bigger test for Massie than Carter was for Leno. Massie was not as strong as Leno, but was above the standard.

James Daniels

Daniels had his hands full with the former first round pick Dexter Lawrence. Lawrence is an absolute tank, and Daniels still struggles with power. He is great on the move, and the new run scheme has made him more valuable. However, he did allow a team high three pressures, according to PFF.

Cody Whitehair

Whitehair had a ho-hum overall day. Nothing special, but nothing to be disappointed with. He did allow a sack to B.J. Hill which is very uncommon for him. Hill was able to win with his hands and push through Whitehair on his way to the quarterback. Whitehair also let Leonard Williams get under him and put pressure on Trubisky. Still, the offensive line kept Williams in check, and he moves around a lot.

Next. Robert Quinn is in rotational role. dark

Germain Ifedi

Speaking of Williams, he spent most of his day being held in check by Ifedi. Ifedi has now played two strong games at right guard, and did not allow a single pressure. The upgrade from Rashaad Coward is massive.

The Chicago Bears allowed two more sacks. One is on Jimmy Graham, who let Kyle Fackrell beat him cleanly. The other is a blitz up the middle that Mitch Trubisky did not recognize.
