I thought Wright did OK considering it was his first NFL game and that he hardly played in the PS.  The guy next to him seemed to struggle especially with the stunts.    But Davis hasn't played a snap in the PS so I expect Wright and him will get better as the season goes on.

Whitehair should be our center.  Bears will have to get through the next 3 games and hope Jenkins comes back and bumps Patrick to the bench.

They signed Davis to a huge 4 year deal - they're not going to bench him after the first game.   Especially, since he's been MIA prior to last Sunday.

But Davis was often times a turnstyle against the Pack.

Last night's game was a case study in how an Oline can affect a game. Something the Bears geniuses claim to know but never show. All you have to do is compare the Eagles oline to the set of misfit toys the Bears keep trotting out year after year....

Tick Tock. Kevin Warren you are on the clock.....

It was also an example of how a QB can overcome a strong pass rush.  Cousins had a lot of pressure but put up 4 TDs and well over 300 yards.

I've always not gotten those who hate Kirk Cousins. You can win with him if you give him a decent team. He's not a world beater but definitely not bottom tier either.....

The trouble with Cousins is that the Vikes cut Cook. Now they dont have adequate running game. That doesnt sound like something thats Cousins' fault

Dolphins have scored 70 points so far today.

First time an NFL team has done that since 1966.

@NFLRookieWatxh
CJ Stroud is officially the first QB from Ohio State to throw for 380+ yards in an NFL game.

Stroud also has more 300-yard passing games than Justin Fields now.

Fields has played in 27 games, while Stroud has played in 2.

Stroud is also currently 4th in the NFL, and 2nd in the AFC is passing yards with 626.

The Buckeyes brought up a STUD 😳

------------------------------------------

Fields was sacked 56 times in his college career while attempting 618 passes or once every 12.0 pass plays.  I thought I heard on Hamp and OB that Stroud was sacked for half that number and that was with over 200 more pass attempts than Fields.
