You're going to get more pass rush out of Bullard and Robertson but Unrein was underappreciated for his work in the trenches...and as I said before he will be missed.  The good thing is we have 3 young DEs to help out Hicks - so you can't complain too much.

Agreed - I didn't see Tolliver either.  Michael Joseph looked OK, he did whif on a tackle though.

Fitts was credited with one sack.  Should have had another but flushed the QB into another Bear lineman for a sack.  Had several pressures too.  I thought he held up well going against the behemoth rookie from Oklahoma.  And on one play held his position against both Orlando Brown and another Raven on a sweep that ended up going the other way.

He doesn't have quite the burst of Irving but he has some good pass rush moves, plays the run, and he looked OK dropping back into pass coverage.  I'm really looking forward to seeing more of these 2 guys.

I kind of found this depressing as well as alarming:

https://chicago.suntimes.com/sports/bears-mitch-trubisky-preseason-ravens/

Trubisky’s debut in Nagy’s offense likely will come next Thursday against the Bengals in Cincinnati. But even then, he’s expected to be limited to a possession or two.

I see it as a tradeoff between experience and exposing him too much and I dont like that. As complicated as the offense is, Trubisky needs all the reps he can get. I could see where he only plays a couple of series the whole preseason then gets thrown to the wolves against the Pack in the opener. Thats asking for a defeat. Ya gotta beat the Pack, its a division game. If the playoffs is the goal, in a tough division, ya gotta win division games.

This is nothing new.  Typically Bears have 4 PS games (HOF is the 5th).

1st game starting offense will get a couple series.  2nd game starting offense gets maybe a quarter or so.  3rd game starting offense gets a half.  4th game...starting offense sits.

I read Tolliver didnt play because he is just coming back from a minor injury.

I am glad they didn't kick the extra point and go to OT last night.  Either win or lose a preseason game.  Don't go to OT.  Hell preseason games should just end it a tie after regulation.

Was happy with what I saw of Nichols.  We racked up 8 sacks, not bad.  Now the games get more meaningful for the next 3.

30-27 Bungholes. Missed FG would have tied it.

Conspiracy theorists would say the Bears may be considering stashing him on the PS or red-shirting him on IR.

He's probably got some sort of minor injury.

That Trubisky pass that hit Kevin White in the hands and bounced off, sad.  And the D looked good then got gashed big time.  I know the first stringers were not in much but I was having flash backs to last year.  Only watched the first half, I will watch the rest tonight.  I did enjoy the Fuller pick 6.

Scouting reports for Kevin White coming out of school were that he had good hands - much better than Amari Cooper who was drafted just before him.

I'm thinking he's anxious based on missing the majority of 3 years in the NFL.
