The Bears running backs get a B +.
Both Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen were excellent. The only red flags on their games were the drop at the end at the goal line by Howard, and while you don’t want Cohen in the game as a blocker, it has to be part of his job every once in a while and it’s obvious it is something he still has to work at.
Still, if Cohen was getting a grade separate from the running back group it would be an A - .
The tight ends were good enough against Atlanta, and Dion Sims does a very nice job blocking in-line.
Zach Miller is going to have to be a bigger part of the passing game, and Adam Shaheen isn’t close to ready yet so on opening day the group was a B-.
The offensive line was good, not great, and gets a B for the game.
It was unfortunate to see Bobby Massie isolated on the game-ending sack because he had a really good game to that point, and Josh Sitton played extremely well. Cody Whitehair had his hands full all day, but Dontari Poe can do that to anyone. (Sarah Nader - firstname.lastname@example.org)
