Chicago Bears: These were the biggest disappointments from Week 12
Chicago Bears Disappointment No. 1: Artie Burns
While it hurts me somewhat to put Artie Burns in here, it’d be a disservice by myself.
Going into the game, I was actually excited to see that Burns replaced the recently exposed Kindle Vindor, however, I quickly ate my words on Burns as the game began.
Not that I’m super reliant on Pro Footbal Focus (PFF) grades to display how someone played on the field, but Artie Burns’ 51.9 PFF grade is enough to grant him a spot on this list.
Considering Jaylon Johnson’s been the clear CB1 by an astronomical margin since the preseason, it’s not like this wasn’t a glaring hole in the Chicago Bears defense. If fans know it, then coordinators absolutely know it and gameplan with it in mind.
Even though this game wasn’t full of points, Artie Burns was responsible for at least one of the Lions’ two touchdowns and many of Jared Goff’s 171 yards.
While this game wasn’t completely full of disappointing Chicago Bears players, Artie Burns finds himself in the first of three spots. Who takes No. 2 in the list of disappointing Chicago Bears in Week 12?
