3. Should Equanimeous St. Brown play over Chase Claypool?

One small surprise from the Chicago Bears season opener was seeing Equanimeous St. Brown as an inactive. Matt Eberflus preaches HITS, and nobody follows that more than St. Brown. In the preseason, he was finishing a long run with a block to seal a Khalil Herbert touchdown.

Instead, the Chicago Bears started Chase Claypool, who struggles to block and seems to flash all of the opposite things that Eberflus preaches. He missed all of the preseason with minor issues, and the team let him play over St. Brown, who put the work in. The Chicago Bears are not practicing what they preach.

What is even more surprising was that the game plan called for a blocking wid receiver. The Chicago Bears had one; he just happened to be inactive. Will they activate? Will Chase Claypool start to lose work after his week one performance? Do the Chicago Bears continue to run these plays? They have plenty of questions in this room.
