The Bears are Pro Football Focus darlings If you wanted to feel better

about the Bears’ 2-1 start and hold on first place in the NFC North Authentic Anthony Miller Jersey , look no further than the love Chicago is receiving from advanced analytics, most notably Pro Football Focus. Three weeks into the 2018 season, eight Bears are in the top 10 at their respective positions.Note: no advanced statistics should be taken as gospel (look no further than the constant Adrian Amos conversations). But they are worthy looks when juxtaposed amongst a variety of information. Consider the source and compare them to different sources when possible. At any rate, Khalil Mack is PFF’s highest-graded edge defender, no surprise for the likely early frontrunner for Defensive Player of the Year. Eddie Jackson is the NFL’s second-highest graded safety, as the second-year leap towards stardom is being made. Bryce Callahan is the second-best cornerback - not nickel cornerback - cornerback. Jordan Howard is the third-best running back, despite his limited early use. Akiem Hicks is playing as the third-best interior defensive lineman as his Pro Bowl season may finally be here. Prince Amukamara is the fourth-best cornerback, likely boosted by his pick-six against the Seahawks. Charles Leno is the blindside protector the Bears have wanted, with Leno sitting at sixth among all tackles. Finally, Eddie Goldman is the ninth-best interior defensive lineman. (Football is more than sacks!)Yes, an overwhelming portion of that list features the NFL’s current best defense in Football Outsiders’ DVOA (another statistical source to note but not take as gospel). It’d be difficult to find many bright spots amidst a currently struggling offense. Nevertheless Authentic Mitchell Trubisky Jersey , it isn’t a bad ideal to see so many Bears featured among the best football has to offer. A potential harbinger of what’s to come in the 2018 season.

Not at all geographically linked, but what seems like one of the NFL’s next great budding rivalries. Without even taking into account that 2018 will mark the fifth-straight year Chicago and San Francisco meet, you also have the Ryan Pace and John Lynch swindling factor, as well as the juxtaposition of proposed franchise quarterbacks in Mitchell Trubisky and Jimmy Garoppolo. Seeing as how both franchises have been mired in obscurity recently, for this to actually become a valuable NFL rivalry there needs to be more fun and competitive play on the field. Provided Trubisky and Garoppolo continue to grow, this matchup looks like it could soon be that gift that keeps on giving. On the latest WCG Radio, SB Nation NFL Editor and Niners Nation Editor-in-chief, David Fucillo joined me to discuss the latest with the 49ers. Are they getting too much hype? What’s to be appreciated about Lynch’s vision? How has Richard Sherman looked while coming back from an Achilles? And Womens Prince Amukamara Jersey , most importantly: why is Garoppolo so darn handsome?We answer all of these questions and more. Without further ado, the latest Bears 2018 opponent preview on the 49ers and their dreamboat at quarterback. iTunesSubscribing, rating five stars, and reviewing is that easy!Robert ZeglinskiBlogTalk RadioOn this episode of WCG RadioSecond year of the Lynch and Kyle Shanahan era: changed expectationsSan Francisco perspective on the Trubisky trade (it’s fine!)Jimmy Garoppolo’s second season in the Bay Area: too much hype?One underrated area people don’t talk enough about on the 49ers roster (hello, weapons!)One area that could be the team’s Achilles heel Staying competitive in a growing NFC West with the Rams: is LA now the 49ers’ rival?Free agency review (Sherman’s revenge!)
