These 3 young Chicago Bears have impressed thus far.
Most people weren’t too high on the Chicago Bears‘ offseason moves. A lot of people thought the Bears moved either laterally or took a step back. Now off to a 3-0 start, some of these young players have really stepped up to carve themselves a role in the offense and defense.
Clearly, young players like Eddie Jackson, Anthony Miller, and Allen Robinson all have already earned their respective roles and do well week in and week out. This is more about the young guys who weren’t expected to have a major role or impact thus far and really have.
Currently, the Bears stand atop of the NFC North with the Green Bay Packers as both teams are 3-0 on the season. The Bears may have not won in a dominating fashion against some sub-par teams, but a win is a win and they’ve taken advantage of teams’ weaknesses when it matters.
In the season opener against the Detroit Lions, the Bears seemed to be the team everyone expected until Mitchell Trubisky stepped up throwing three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to win them the game. The next game was nearly the opposite as the Bears jumped out early dominating the New York Giants and almost blew their lead.
Week 3, the Bears pulled it off again, but this time without Trubisky. Trubisky got pulled after a horrid interception for Nick Foles who threw three touchdowns in seven minutes to make the crazy comeback.
Some of these players have emerged to really help this team through injuries or just players not living up to their hype. Some finally seemed to put it all together and show what they were drafted for. Here are these three players.
