5. Will we see Equanimeous St. Brown with a role on the Chicago Bears offense?
The Chicago Bears wide receiver room will be interesting to see shake out this season. On paper, we will see plenty of Darnell Mooney and Chase Claypool, but you have to wonder how much Equanimeous St. Brown will spell them.
Mooney is returning from an ankle injury and may be closer to just a slot role. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears have been easing in Chase Claypool, and he missed most of the offseason. That is not great for a player who was out of the loop and needed the experience last year.
So, you have to wonder if either Mooney or Claypool are given short breaks where St. Brown is the better option. This also makes sense from the rushing perspective. Green Bay is better against the pass than the run.
The Chicago Bears are better at running than passing. The game plan should be for Chicago to run it right at Green Bay and make them stop it before trying other avenues. This could mean leaning to the run-blocking wide receiver. It would be a nod to St. Brown taking on a reduced role but still having a strong preseason while the guys above him have hardly hit the field.
