Chicago Bears: 3 cornerbacks Darnell Mooney should circle in 2021
By Ryan Heckman
This has been a fun week for Chicago Bears fans. It’s not every day you get the chance to grab the attention of an All-Pro cornerback like Jalen Ramsey, but that’s exactly what happened.
It all began when some fans started picking on Ramsey, pointing to last year’s matchup with the Bears. Specifically, one play was brought up in particular. Ramsey then took to his Instagram to call out those Bears fans.
That play saw rookie wide receiver Darnell Mooney make a quick move and race past Ramsey, taking off and releasing down the sideline. Mooney clearly worked right past Ramsey after the move he made, and fans wanted to make sure the cornerback remembered.
The unfortunate part of that play, for those who remember, was the poor pass from quarterback Nick Foles. It would have been a 95-yard touchdown, but Mooney was overthrown. Still, the fact Mooney beat Ramsey made things fun for fans this week.
Could Darnell Mooney circle a few corners on the Chicago Bears 2021 schedule?
Remember back when Chad (Ochocinco) Johnson had a list of cornerbacks taped to his locker? He would cross off each guy, one by one, as he proved they couldn’t stop him.
With this week’s social media drama in regards to Mooney and Ramsey, why not highlight a few cornerbacks on this year’s schedule to focus even more on?
If Mooney were to circle some cornerbacks on the 2021 schedule, he’d have plenty to choose from. The Bears’ schedule is no walk in the park. In fact, it’s the third-toughest schedule for any NFL team going into this season.
The Bears won’t have it easy, and neither will Mooney and his offensive counterparts. But, if we’re going to get specific, there are three corners Mooney should highlight and look forward to.
