Brad Biggs answers your Bears questions weekly.
Do approaching opponents now accept a arrangement on how to abate Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks’ canyon rush? — Rich B., Fort Myers, Fla.
No. It’s not like the Dolphins did annihilation antecedent opponents did not try. They aloof did it bigger and in the case of Mack added about in agreement of double-teaming him and accouterment dent advice with bound ends, active backs and advanced receivers. Mack had few affairs to blitz Brock Osweiler one-on-one until he started demography reps on the appropriate ancillary of the aegis adjoin larboard accouterment Laremy Tunsil. Still, there were instances aback the Dolphins provided advice to Tunsil as well. The bigger affair with the canyon blitz was that players who were freed up with one-on-one opportunities did not win. The Dolphins did a nice job of accepting the brawl out quickly, so fast that it was activity to be absurd to get to Osweiler at times. I wouldn’t say it was a adapt for approaching success adjoin the defense. The Bears got beat bottomward by the calefaction too. I apprehend the advanced seven to animation aback and accept a stronger achievement adjoin Tom Brady and the Patriots on Sunday at Soldier Field. Mack isn’t activity to be Superman every anniversary advancing off the edge, but he will be very, actual acceptable best weeks and he was arena on a taped-up appropriate abate afterwards adversity an abrasion at the end of the aboriginal quarter.
Is it a amplitude to say that acid Robbie Gould is far and abroad the affliction cadre move Ryan Clip has made? I alone don’t alike anticipate there is a aing second-place option. — @conor_bananas
The Bears accept absolutely had issues in the blame game, but I’m not able to acknowledge Cody Parkey a bad move. He’s 9-for-11 this division and while he bare to accomplish the overtime bang in Miami, it was a 53-yarder. I anticipate you’re overlooking the signing of Mike Glennon in 2017 and the accommodation to try to anatomy about Jay Cutler afore that. The Kevin White abstract aces hasn’t formed out actual able-bodied for the Bears and there accept been some cogent free-agent signings that haven’t panned out as well. Managing the quarterback position is FAR added important than kickers. So I would disagree with you in this regard. Yes, acid Gould was a abnormality and the Bears accept paid for it, but there accept been bigger missteps forth the way. Let’s see what Parkey produces over the advance of an absolute division afore we blitz to adjudicator him.
Matt Nagy’s use of the alarm at the end of the d was suspect. Is that article he’s accustomed he needs to get bigger at? — @mphelps11
I don’t anticipate alarm administration was an affair for the Bears in Sunday’s 31-28 overtime accident at Miami. The Bears did a nice job of chewing up time on their touchdown drive that was capped by Mitch Trubisky’s 29-yard canyon to Anthony Miller. That 75-yard drive took 5 minutes, 51 abnormal off the alarm and put the Bears advanced 28-21 with 3:17 remaining. The affair was the aegis accustomed a touchdown on the Dolphins’ aing snap. In overtime, the Bears additionally took abundant time off the alarm afterwards Akiem Hicks affected Kenyan Drake’s lix at the 1-yard line. The affair there was the Bears didn’t get afterpiece for a field-goal try and afresh Cody Parkey absent the 53-yard acreage ambition try. What was doubtable was the arrest in the fourth quarter. I would catechism Nagy’s play-calling, accurately on the third-and-4 from the Dolphins 35-yard band in overtime afore I would admiration about alarm management.

Do you accede the big plays accustomed up and abridgement of arrest by the Bears aegis on Sunday to be a accident or a affair activity forward? — @samkraft
I don’t apperceive if “fluke” is the chat I would use, but you would achievement it is an aberration. Arrest was not awkward or poor in the aboriginal four games, and the best arrant errors were fabricated in the fourth division and overtime aback the calefaction and clamminess had taken a appraisal on the Bears. It’s a affair in that the Bears bootless to accomplish plays that could accept created a altered outcome, but I agnosticism this will be a above affair affective forward.
Why hasn’t the Bears canyon blitz apparent up on milk cartons yet this week? They absolutely aished on Sunday. — @1959whitesox
The canyon blitz was absent on Sunday, but the Dolphins had a lot to do with that, alpha with the plan to get the brawl out of Osweiler’s appropriate duke quickly. This isn’t a affecting affair because the Bears accept accurate aptitude to blitz the passer and they did absolutely able-bodied in the antecedent four games. I don’t anticipate it’s a acceptable abstraction to overreact to one loss. It’s fair to apprehend the canyon blitz to acknowledgment to form.
What’s your booty on Leonard Floyd’s penalties? The aftermost one was infuriating because it looked like he was aggravating to beating bottomward the pass. Added importantly, did anyone aural the aggregation allocution to him about it? I apperceive Matt Nagy had no animadversion at the end of the game. — @asiansportsfan1
The roughing-the-passer amends appeared to be a bad alarm by adjudicator Walt Anderson. I brainstorm Anderson, from his angle, believed Floyd addled Osweiler in the helmet as he went by. It doesn’t arise that was the case aback reviewing the play. The aboriginal amends adjoin Floyd, for accidental acerbity afterwards he anatomy airtight Dolphins advanced receiver Danny Amendola, was a bad comedy by Floyd. He has to apperceive better. That’s activity to get alleged every time and could potentially aftereffect in a fine. There were some added calls or non-calls in the d that agitated the Bears, but that affectionate of affair happens for every team, every week.
After watching the Bears comedy miserably the aftermost few years in Tampa and Miami, it seems to me that arctic teams arena in Florida and carnality versa tends to be a amazing larger-than-normal home advantage. How would you rank the greatest home advantages beyond the league? — @roybal5598
There’s no catechism the Florida teams accept advantage aback arena in hot acclimate afterwards September, but the cast ancillary of that, as you point out, is those teams accepting to biking arctic to comedy in the algid and snow afterwards in the season. The best teams about accept the greatest home-field advantages. It’s difficult for a bad football aggregation to accept an advantage whether the d is played at home or wherever. Seattle can be a difficult abode for alley teams because of the army noise, but the army about isn’t accursed up if the home aggregation isn’t arena decidedly well.
Photos of Bears active aback Jordan Howard.
I like Jordan Howard and don’t appetite to see him go, but why wasn’t he confused in the offseason if they aren’t activity to use him in key situations? Shouldn’t they accept traded him at best value? — @matt22880192
I would altercate that the Bears accept been application Howard in key situations, like the run comedy on third bottomward afore Parkey’s absent 53-yard field-goal try. It was additionally a key bearings aback Howard fumbled at the 1-yard band in the additional quarter. He hasn’t been accepting as abundant activity as he did the aboriginal two seasons, no catechism about that, but if Howard wasn’t actuality the Bears would charge a aback to booty his place, and as you anamnesis the aggregation had a continued account of needs to ample during the offseason. I additionally accept Howard’s barter bulk would not accept been absolutely what you imagine, abnormally aback you accede his struggles as a canyon catcher aftermost season. Added teams would appearance him as a two-down back. Howard is on his amateur arrangement and that makes him bargain and affordable for the Bears. Let’s see how he’s acclimated for the of the season. Yes, there is a acceptable adventitious the Bears could accomplish the position a antecedence in the offseason.
When do they absolutely bandy to Kevin White instead of aloof use him to block? — @terrence_j_naus
The casual d has been appealing acceptable to this point. The Bears confused the brawl through the air adjoin the Dolphins and were outstanding throwing the brawl in the antecedent d adjoin the Buccaneers. White has 70 snaps on the division but has yet to be targeted. As I accept said before, I would focus added on the opportunities to get the brawl to playmakers like Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel, Anthony Miller, Trey Burton and Tarik Cohen. White will get the brawl at some point, but he’s aloof a actual baby allotment of the breach and the alone acumen questions abide to appear in every anniversary on him is because he is a above first-round abstract pick. The absoluteness is the Bears accept replaced White, and now he’s a bound role player.
Are the Bears best at 5-0 if they stop those 75-yard plays in both losses? — @fols54
Sure. But booty a big comedy out of the mix in the 16-14 achievement they had over the Cardinals in Anniversary 3 and the Bears lose that game. You can comedy “what if” with aloof about every NFL d anniversary and every week, abnormally in the amateur that are absitively by one score.
Why has Jordan Howard, afterwards back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, collapsed so out of favor in the backfield rotation? — @petersirianni
Howard is on clip for 870 yards hasty and with 11 amateur remaining, his assembly needs to be aloft alone a baby bulk for him to hit 1,000 yards for a third beeline season. I’ve never anticipation 1,000 yards is the best barometer for success of a active back. I anticipate 1,200 yards is an archetype of a absolutely acceptable division on the ground. Howard went for 1,313 yards as a amateur in 2016 and had 1,122 yards aftermost season. If the Bears were agriculture the brawl a lot added to Howard, you apperceive what would happen? The mailbag would be abounding with bodies allurement why Tarik Cohen is not accepting the brawl more. Here’s article to accumulate in apperception aback you admiration about the assembly the Bears are accepting on the arena this season: They are averaging 252.2 casual yards per game. In 2017, the Bears were 32nd in the league, averaging alone 175.7 yards casual per game. That’s one big account for what has happened to the arena d this season.
The Bears accept accustomed a touchdown to opposing bound ends anniversary anniversary appropriately far. Why is this happening? Who is amenable for the absolute coverages? And how are they activity to stop Gronk? — @rtdenten
The Bears accept accustomed four touchdown receptions to opposing bound ends this season, angry with the Patriots and 49ers (both of those teams accept played six games) for the best in the NFL. It’s account acquainted opposing bound ends accept bent alone 20 passes adjoin the Bears, which is angry for the second-lowest absolute in the league. Dolphins bound end Nick O’Leary bent a 5-yard touchdown in the aboriginal division Sunday. I don’t apperceive I would say there was absolute advantage on the play. Free assurance Eddie Jackson apparently came decline a little too aggressively on the comedy fake. O’Leary was lined up in the backfield as a fullback and appear into the collapsed and Jackson didn’t accept a acceptable bend to accomplish a comedy adjoin a acceptable bandy by Osweiler. The Bears will absolutely accept to accept a plan to absolute Rob Gronkowski on Sunday. He has alone one touchdown accession this division but is fourth amid players at the position in the alliance with 405 yards. I don’t anticipate this is necessarily a weakness of the Bears, aloof article they charge to apple-pie up a little.
Is there addition high-level cornerback on the market? — @timothy76633198
Well, there were letters that the Cardinals could accede trading Patrick Peterson, and he would absolutely authorize as aerial level, but drillmaster Steve Wilks afresh came out and labeled those letters “ridiculous.” There are not any “high level” cornerbacks on the artery gluttonous work, and with the Bears abbreviate on exceptional abstract picks for the aing two years, I don’t see them accepted any trades now or in the a approaching for high-level players. They will be accomplished at cornerback aback Prince Amukamara’s hamstring is healed up and aback the canyon blitz gets activity again, which care to appear this week.
REAL TALK: Despite disturbing overtime loss, Bears still authoritative cogent advance on their ascend »
In overtime during the canyon that set up the win for the Dolphins, Khalil Mack was all but tackled to ground, and this happens a few times per game. Should Matt Nagy be authoritative a bigger accord out of it and accelerate in tapes to the NFL officiating office? It couldn’t hurt. — @tobinhoward
The Bears were determined that Mack was captivated on the comedy you are apropos to — the 35-yard canyon to Kenny Stills. Osweiler formed out of the abridged to his appropriate and targeted Amendola, but the brawl went off able assurance Adrian Amos and was bent by Stills. Mack was taken bottomward by appropriate accouterment Ja’wuan James on the comedy and the Bears were assertive he was held. I would be afraid if the Bears did not about-face the comedy into the alliance appointment for review, but alike if the NFL acknowledges it was a absent call, it doesn’t do a lot of good, does it? It should additionally be acclaimed this 35-yard comedy did not appear on the acceptable drive. Dolphins active aback Kenyan Drake fumbled at the 1-yard band at the end of this possession. However, a captivation alarm there would accept pushed the Dolphins aback into a second-and-21 from their own 14-yard band instead of accepting first-and-10 at the Bears 41. So, yes, it was a big non-call and a acceptable point by you.
Not animadversion Kyle Fuller, he fabricated two interceptions, but area did he apprentice to tackle? You can see on abounding replays from Sunday, and throughout the season, he runs adjoin the brawl carrier and afresh throws himself at their legs. Ninety percent of the time the brawl carrier artlessly accomplish over him. Why doesn’t he accouterment anatomy to body? — T. Sullivan, Parts Unknown
Fuller absent some tackles on Sunday, but I anticipate he’s appealing abuse acceptable in run abutment on the outside. He’s abundant added concrete than a lot of cornerbacks beyond the alliance and I would disagree with your appraisal that 90 percent of the time the brawl carrier goes over him. Absoluteness is the majority of the time Fuller makes the tackle. His concrete comedy in run abutment is one of the strengths of his game. Yes, he absent some plays adjoin the Dolphins, but those are tackles he about makes.
I accept a catechism about Cody Parkey. In the Miami d Parkey’s ambit is 54, career long. The bang he absent was 53. Additional the bang was placed on the appropriate assortment mark. The acreage goals that Parkey has absent accept been from the appropriate assortment mark, additional his brawl fades appropriate and away. If you go aback and attending at the bang he was at about at his max range, additional the appropriate assortment mark, and his brawl fades appropriate and away. This additionally happened aperture night in Green Bay. The Bears coaches charge apperceive these facts about their kicker. Aback a field-goal attack comes up, why don’t they try and run the comedy adjoin the average of the acreage so the attack is added in the centermost alive that their kicker’s brawl fades and additionally they apperceive the ambit is 54 max? — Ed T., Palatine
You are actual that Parkey’s career-long acreage ambition is from 54 yards, but as you saw on the absence Sunday, he had added than abundant leg to accomplish that kick. The backbone and ambit of the bang was not an issue, so I would abide that the Bears were operating with a altered cardinal in apperception aback because the alien absolute of his range. The absent bang didn’t achromatize right. It started appropriate and backward appropriate and Parkey said he artlessly didn’t hit the brawl properly. He admired the band he chose, he aloof didn’t hit it. He was 3-for-3 in the opener adjoin the Packers and his alone antecedent absence in approved division was a 46-yard bang at Arizona in Anniversary 3. He absent advanced appropriate from 46 yards and that bang wasn’t on the larboard assortment mark but was afterpiece to the larboard assortment mark than the average of the field.
I am addled by Vic Fangio’s d plan. Throughout his career Brock Osweiler has apparent either an abhorrence or disability to bandy deep. Yet the Bears gave up the abbreviate canyon all game. Their advantage was so bendable Miami’s quick receivers had bags of space, which led to ample gains. You could see Osweiler’s aplomb abound as he completed canyon afterwards canyon and our DBs ran out of gas. You would anticipate that at some during the d our DBs would accept acclimatized to columnist advantage to force them to assignment for their yards. But if never happened. I accept a ton of account for Fangio, but I don’t get it. Do you? — Rob J., Parts Unknown
Osweiler has never been afraid to bandy deep; he aloof hasn’t been actual acceptable aback accomplishing it. The Dolphins advised to get the brawl out of his easily bound and you’re right, it’s fair to catechism the action the Bears used, but the bigger affair is the execution. Free assurance Eddie Jackson fabricated two plays on advanced receiver screens area he came decline bound and brought the receiver bottomward immediately. The Bears were attractive for these quick throws. They artlessly didn’t assassinate and accomplish the tackles that they bare to on every play. It takes alone one absent accouterment to accord a brawl carrier a window. Combine that with a acceptable block or two and you’ve got a big play. Absolutely fair to be analytical of the aegis on Sunday, but Fangio has a able almanac and I apprehend the Bears to animation back.
Photos of quarterback Mitch Trubisky, whom the Bears called with the No. 2 all-embracing aces in the 2017 NFL draft.
Mitch Trubisky is consistently accepted for his athleticism, but I can’t be the alone one who notices how abominably he finishes abounding of his open-field scrambles. That 28-yard advantage run adjoin the Dolphins could able-bodied accept gone for a touchdown if Mitch hadn’t tripped over his own feet. I absolutely would like to see Bears blitz Trubisky more, but it seems that would be agreeable a Jimmy Garoppolo-like catastrophe. Do you anticipate this is article that is alike on the apprenticeship staff’s radar, accustomed how abundant is already on their plate? Scrambling is about advised like an congenital aptitude of some QBs, but is this article Trubisky could advance with training. — David D., Rogers Park
Trubisky’s able-bodied adeptness makes him accomplished active the football and he has fabricated some acceptable decisions this division to accumulate the ball. He got circuitous up with his own anxiety on the continued run as you point out, but are we activity to criticize him for a 28-yard gain? Trubisky has 164 hasty yards, putting him on clip for 525 this season. I anticipate he’s active enough. The added you ask the quarterback to backpack the ball, the added you betrayal him to injury. Fortunately, Trubisky seems actual acquainted of this aback he’s in the accessible acreage and he about consistently does a acceptable job of accepting bottomward to abstain big hits.
Should the Bears be active added at the end of amateur with the lead? If I’m not mistaken, that was Ryan Pace’s vision. The Bears accept Jordan Howard abaft a good/healthy abhorrent line. Is it the play-calling, added weapons on breach or are they extenuative him for aback it gets colder? — @westloopawni
The Bears denticulate in the fourth division aback they bare to, so I don’t anticipate it’s a fair criticism of them advancing out of the accident to the Dolphins. They threw the brawl again in the additional bisected adjoin the Buccaneers and kept scoring, so why fix what wasn’t broken? The Bears accept a casual breach now. We’ll see how they acknowledge aback they charge to aing out a d with a four-minute offense. Yes, they accept a lot added weapons on breach and they’re accomplishing a acceptable job of involving them all.
How abundant did the accommodation to accord the players the abounding bye anniversary off accord to the sloppy, blah accident we saw adjoin the Dolphins? — @meastermagoo
It’s important to accept how abundant convenance time the Bears absent aback Nagy gave the players the anniversary off. We’re talking about one convenance on Wednesday. Teams don’t convenance on Mondays afterwards a d and would accept had affairs on Tuesday arch into Wednesday aback they could accept accomplished afore the allowable minimum of four after canicule off that charge accommodate a weekend (Thursday through Sunday). So did absence one convenance the anniversary of the accessible date advance to a poor accomplishment adjoin the Dolphins? I would say no.
The Bears bare 5 to 7 yards on their aftermost abhorrent comedy and Nagy didn’t assurance Mitch Trubisky to accomplish the play. Apprehend that from John Fox but not Nagy. Doesn’t every authorization QB in the alliance bandy the brawl in that situation? — @mike__chicago
The Bears bare 5 yards absolutely to accretion a aboriginal bottomward in that situation. I anticipation above Bears drillmaster Dave Wannstedt fabricated an accomplished point Tuesday morning on the “Mully & Haugh Show” on WSCR-AM 670 aback they discussed the play-calling at this cardinal point in the game. Wannstedt asked the hosts what they would be assured in this bearings as a arresting coordinator. Both responded they would comedy to avert the pass. Wannstedt said that was the absolute acumen to run the brawl in that situation. Wanny makes a absolutely acceptable point. The botheration is the Bears did not assassinate the Jordan Howard run, he was ample up for no gain, afresh Cody Parkey absent the 53-yard acreage ambition that would accept beatific the Bears home winners.
