1. The Chicago Bears have to get pressure against Andrew Wylie
The Commanders went out and signed Andrew Wyle to be their starting righ tackle. He came from the Kansas City Chiefs, and so did new offensive coordinator Eric Bienemy, so the fit makes plenty of sense.
However, Bears fans know about what happens when you jam in a fit because of a coach, they are living it with Lucas Patrick and Luke Getsy. Sometimes, the player is just not good, and the fit with the coach does not matter. The Chiefs let Wylie walk because they needed to upgrade right tackle, and he has been a disappointment for the Washington Commanders so far.
Wylie has allowed 15 pressures and has committed three penalties, per PFF. For some comparison, no Chicago Bears lineman is responsible for 15 pressures allowed this season. Wylie has been an issue, and it is hurting the team.
The question is how the team can take advantage and whether that is even possible. They typically rush DeMarcus Walker against right tackles, and that is an uninspiring matchup for the Chicago Bears. They were set on signing Walker to defend the run on early downs and slide inside late, but that has not been the case.
Should the team try to get Yannick Ngakoue on the other side this week? It is an easier matchup and could help the team. Will Walker finally get on the stat sheet with a big game? Or will Andrew Wylie feel like he is finally getting an easy matchup when he sees Walker?
