First-round bust Charles Harris sat this one out. He contributed just as much from the bench as he did in the first 5 games this year.
First-round bust DeVante Parker was targeted once. The pass was poor, but Parker made the laziest attempt I’ve ever seen. He casually jogged right past the ball while the defender caught it uncontested. He does this routinely and needs to be shipped elsewhere. Absolutely zero effort. Hit hurts to watch.
Ryan Tannehill, while I won’t call him a first-round bust, also got the day off, and we still won. Can’t yet say if we won despite his injury or because of it.
A lot more to come this week. But the good news is that guys who weren’t producing got replaced, and the subs did really well. Even non-injured guys like Tory McTyer, who got burned repeatedly, got benched. Nice to see Cordrea Tankersley get some snaps in. Because McTyer was the Bears’ MVP.
Oh did you know that Khalil Mack is a good player? The FOX broadcasters told us that fact 750 times, but I didn’t see him make a single play. Thumbs up to Adam Gase for engineering a great scheme today.
Brock Osweiler had no problem commanding that offense. He made calls I never heard before. You could hear him say “Miller” and “Rhode Island” often. YOu heard him call the players by name. “Danny,” and “Albert” and “Gesicki.” He was getting their attention and telling them where to be. I loved it.
And finally, how about Millionaire Traitor Cody Parkey getting bit by kharma and by our minimum-wage rookie kicker?
Look for some photos and analysis soon.
What did you guys think of the game !?
