1. The Chicago Bears interior offensive line has time to gel
The Chicago Bears' interior offensive line was an absolute disaster on Sunday. Still, what did you expect? Cody Whitehair was the only one of the starters who consistently practiced this summer. Of course, he spent the summer practicing at center and then started week one at left guard.
Lucas Patrick has been bad when he has suited up for the Chicago Bears, and he has been injured almost the entirety of his tenure. He hardly practiced throughout training camp and was the starting center in week one. No wonder they turned it over on a sneak on their first drive.
Nate Davis somehow practiced less than Patrick this summer. He was the big free agent signing this summer, but he was a massive issue in this game. Devonte Wyatt had his way with Nate Davis, and Wyatt was very inconsistent as a rookie last season.
So, what do you get when you have three interior linemen and none of them have practiced together? You get a mess. The good news is that the group is now practicing together. Every day, they gain more experience than they ever have. They got the worst out of them, and the group should get better as they gel and hopefully stay healthier. If this group can hold up for a bit and Teven Jenkins can return, the group will not be this bad moving forward.
