I didn't want to admit this, but Kahlil Mack is pretty ordinary at this point.

I know, newsflash, right? I was holding out hope that he was hurt last year and he would come back being at least the guy from 2019, if not 2018. The truth of the matter is, he might even be below average for a starting outside linebacker. I'm actually looking forward to Trevis Gipson taking over snaps in relief.

Again, I know this is obvious to many and I'm slow on the uptake, but the Bears need a youth movement on defense in a big way. A lot of guys are playing on their 2018 reputations.

Maybe the Raiders fans were right and he just takes plays off. He’s been doing it so long at this point he’s just comfortable going though the motions. Maybe that will change it once Justin becomes a starter and can energize the team.

It ain’t just Mack. Our top 5 salary hits are as follows

Mack 14 million
Quin 14 million
Hicks 12 million
Goldman 8
Eddie Jackson 5 million

none of them are performing at all.
Hard to argue at this point in the season.

His days of breaking a game at will seem done. Still think he can be effective/eat QBs when the personnel (mainly EG) is right. When Quinn/Blackson/Nichols get the 1 on 1 that Hicks/Mack don't--they can't get the job done.

However, also have to question motive at times, because he does occasionally get the 1 on 1 we want to see him wreck/Wirf/ragdoll the Loins LT a couple years ago, and his effort is lacking, to be kind.

Really hope this doesn't lead to Marty Bennett/Brandon Marshall levels of lethargy (without the mouth), where the only thing he cares is 'did the check come through?'

Its okay though, when the bears get that inevitable top 10-12 pick, edge rusher, DB, and OL are great things to consid----oh wait.

A real GM would have taken advantage of the Raiders needing to make a splash this past offseason and traded him back. Then packaged those picks for Fields and still had our soon to be top 5 1st round pick in the 2022 draft.

but no we have fuck face pace…

He lost out on a bunch of sacks and turnovers last year because the rest of the jokers on our team were constantly getting flagged and negating impact plays.

I was happy to see improvement there, but the D as a whole looked lost.

Mack will be fine. Donald didn't do much that have either it's only week one Jesus

You people only look at stats and think they didn't do anything. Donald on most snaps was beating the holy hell out of all of our offensive linemen. There were a few plays where if Donald shoots the other gap, he has a chance to make a play. Nagy's offense was built around the idea that Donald can't get no sacks and the work around the Bend but don't break defense. We will make a play when we need to. Rams did and they won because of it.
