Final cuts leave questions

it’s hard not to feel a bit let down after the Bears’ final cuts of the preseason this past weekend.Authentic A'Shawn Robinson Jersey, ,For all the early excitement brought by the arrivals of rookies Mitch Trubisky and Tarik Cohen

The quarterback position has been upgraded,Authentic Jeff Heuerman Jersey, if for no other reason than Trubisky is the man of the future the Bears have lacked for years,and Mike Glennon is an upgrade over Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley.

and a change of pace option in Cohen provides the Bears an option they haven’t had in a while.,Running back feels good with Jordan Howard ready to anchor the offense in his second season

The tight end spot is better,womens Jake Rudock Jersey, too, with the arrival of free agent Dion Sims and return to health of Zach Miller, but it’s still not exciting – and second-round pick Adam Shaheen is a lot further away from contributing than we were led to believe.

After that...

Over the summer and early in Bourbonnais, veteran free agents Victor Cruz, undrafted rookie free agent Tanner Gentry, Rueben Randle and Jaye Howard, and a return to health from Lamarr Houston offered great promise.

Now all are gone.

Wide receiver is a big disappointment, with a lackluster performance from Kevin White, Authentic Ty Sambrailo Jersey,and season-ending injuries to Cameron Meredith and Randle. Markus Wheaton missed most of the action in training camp.

keeping both of them over Gentry at receiver is disappointing.,womens Taylor Decker Jersey,While the special teams contributions of Josh Bellamy and Deonte Thompson are easy to envision

Throughout the offseason, it looked like the offensive line would be one of the strengths of these Bears, but a much slower-than-hoped-for rehabilitation from offseason ankle surgery for Kyle Long and a season-ending injury to his backup Eric Kush has left the line in flux.

Journeyman tackle Tom Compton has been given time at Long’s left guard spot, as has Hroniss Grasu, Cody Whitehair slid over, and when neither impressed,>Authentic Shane Ray Jersey。 with Grasu going in at center.

Unfortunately, Whitehair didn’t transition to guard nearly as well as he did to center last year,Authentic Taylor Decker Jersey, and Grasu didn’t impress over the ball either.

The most important question is when will we see Long, because when he is ready the O-line can still be a strength, albeit a dangerously thin one.

Until Long gets back,Authentic Graham Glasgow Jersey,this group is only set at right guard and right tackle with Josh Sitton and Bobby Massie, and we hope at center with Whitehair.

The loss of long snapper Patrick Scales to an ACL injury is disappointing,womens Graham Glasgow Jersey, and the peek at Roberto Aguayo was a waste of just under half a million bucks, leaving the uninspiring Connor Barth at placekicker.

The defensive front was looking much improved with the arrival of Jaye Howard, Authentic Adam Gotsis Jersey,return to health of Eddie Goldman, and dramatic improvements from Johnathan Bullard and Roy Robertson-Harris.

But with Bullard and Mitch Unrein banged up the last couple of weeks, ,womens Jeff Heuerman Jerseythe release of Howard is a bit of a surprise, and Goldman has to show up a lot more than he has.

but how much to expect from Pernell McPhee is a huge question. womens Ty Sambrailo Jersey,That makes the failure of Houston to make it all the way back that much more disappointing.,Linebacker is better because Leonard Floyd is much improved and Danny Trevathan will be back soon

The talent in the secondary appears to be upgraded,'Authentic Jake Rudock Jersey and rookie safety Eddie Jackson shows promise, but Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper have both been wounded and limited at times, and Quintin Demps’ play has been uneven.

so how improved is this group?womens Adam Gotsis Jersey,,Kyle Fuller had the best training camp of any Bears defensive back

With only five wide receivers – realistically only three you’d want on the field – and five tight ends plus a fullback currently, it’s clear there will be a few more changes to the team’s 53-man roster, most likely prior to the opener against Atlanta.

this group leaves you feeling a little flat at best.,That’s a good thing.womens Shane Ray Jersey, Because for the moment
