The pass pro can be good at times. But Fields isn't doing them any favors
This sounds kind of BSish.
If everyone is saying how horrible the Bears Pass Pro is, there should be lots of examples of every single offensive lineman messing up. Now, if there are so few pass plays, just one pressure or sack allowed would become a large percentage of total plays so the rating would plummet with any single mistake, dropping a players Pass Pro rating immediately. The more Pass Pro plays, the more towards average the rating would be.
If the Bears are so bad at pass protection, why aren't the numbers WAY below average right now, with less plays than other offensive linemen?
Funny how some Bears offensive linemen can be AWFUL at Pass Pro while being rated top 10 in Pass Pro rating.
This isn't like golf where I could get my Gold Master's championship green jacket because I had less strokes than any other player with my 50 strokes because I quit after completing the first hole, taking 50 strokes to complete it. That would be awful golf by me, yet I would end up with a top 10 (first place) score, since I quit before I took another 50 strokes to complete hole #2.
Mustipher is a great backup for a few quarters when the starter is injuredFields has been bad and its not because of the OL. But I dont trust the pass block win rate stat at all, they gave mustipher a 100% win rate for the GB game even though we have this:
Mr. Inside Information over here.Most offensive linemen will tell you it is FAR easier to run pro than pass pro. FAR FAR EASIER. Run Pro they just have to identify their one man and fire off the ball. Pass pro is more nuanced and can involve passing defenders down the line, etc - in short, pass pro is a LOT more complex.
Most O-linemen prefer run pro because its easier for them to handle - in terms of mental load, assignments, and how they approach the block.
If you don't even know THAT much, you aren't qualified to talk about the line.
Well I’ll trust Alex way more than my eval or CCS’s.Alex Brown just said on the Kap & Hood show that the Oline can’t protect so the Bears try not to pass the ball as much. That kind of goes along with my theory. If the Bears pass the ball like a normal NFL those numbers go way down. Again Fields looks bad, no excuses there but this Oline is not a pass blocking Oline.
I disagree with you. Not watching the games would definitely prevent you from knowing the difference. The problem is trying to pass off that you have any idea of what you're talking about, and doing it in such a smug manner.No doubt but it should prevent you from understanding the difference zone and man run pro.

To begin with, the Bears do not have a top 10 pass-pro offensive line.so the Bears try not to pass the ball as much
To begin with, the Bears do not have a top 10 pass-pro offensive line.
But since the Bears still have some pass plays called, they either show that they are bad in those plays or are given the benefit of the doubt and are given some more pass attempts.
If they show that they are bad in the few pass plays that happen, they never have good numbers because they gave up pressure, hurries or sacks in the few passes that happened.
If the Bears do not give up pressures, sacks or hurries in the few pass attempts, then they never show that they are bad on the field because they never gave up any of those stuff.
This is not an argument with you, but more of this not making any sense.
- "They are bad"
- "How do you know, seeing that the tackles had pretty good Pass Pro ratings?"
- "Well, they hardly ever passed"
- "If they have pretty good Pass Pro ratings, they must not have done too badly when they were in Pass Pro, though it was limited. Why are you complaining?"
- "Because they hardly ever passed. The numbers would have dropped if there were more passes"
- "How do you know this, seeing that in limited passes, they showed that they were not that bad?"
- "Because they are bad"
It’s a team effort to look that bad…..Saw on Twitter that per ProFootballFocus, our offensive line is currently ranked 2nd in run blocking and 22nd in pass blocking. 22nd is bad (obviously), but let's not act like it's solely to blame for what we're watching.
Well I’ll trust Alex way more than my eval or CCS’s.
