Disappointing Chicago Bear No. 1: Chicago Bears Offense Line

While the offense didn’t have that much to work with given the game plan of a certain bald man, the offensive line was, at times, laughably bad. I say at times because, during other times, I’m covering my eyes from Justin Fields getting sacked nine times.

Now, if there were nine sacks, but the offense still performed well, there wouldn’t be that much to be disappointed about with the big picture in mind. However, that was far from the case. This offensive line could be charged for attempted manslaughter with how they “protected” Justin Fields.

Whether it was the offensive scheme or game plan, the offensive line just flat out didn’t do their job. It was downright pitiful seeing them at times just give up.

Now, I don’t want to discredit the Browns’ defensive front, as it is incredibly talented, but at the same time, they’re in the same league of talent. It’s not like it was the Alabama Crimson Tide playing against the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was an NFL team playing an NFL team, yet you’d have no idea if you were watching for the first time.

In Weeks 1 and 2, the Cleveland Browns had three (!) total sacks. That means they tripled their sack count in literally one game compared to the two games prior. It’s just very sad to see the offensive line get beaten this badly, even if they aren’t one of the league’s top units.

With that major weight off my chest, there are two others that must be let out before I get a noise complaint from my downstairs neighbors.
