Audibles From the Long Snapper: Positive Jahns, Around the League Thoughts & More!

Jahns Responds to Nightmare Loss

Here are three POSITIVE points Adam made in the Sun-Times:

4. The Bears missed linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski (four tackles on Bucs’ first drive). Christian Jones missed Jacquizz Rodgers in the backfield on his one-yard touchdown run.

Kwik looked terrific when this game began. He was firing at the line of scrimmage. And then, injury. Because it’s totally normal for a starter and his backup to both tear their pec muscles in consecutive weeks. Remarkable how many rosters are already being decimated just two weeks into the season.

8. Want a positive? Bears rookie safety Eddie Jackson was strong in run support. He’s made a concerted effort to improve his tackling.

9. One more positive? Bears nickel back Bryce Callahan rebounded from his tough Week 1 and nearly had two interceptions. He was active and very close to big plays.

Jackson, Callahan and Kyle Fuller are all playing at a solid level and I expect all three to improve as the season progresses.

5 Around the League Thoughts

Literally found my eyes wandering from the Bears game during the second half Sunday. So I saw quite a bit of the league.

(1) Dak Prescott is really a poor thrower of the football. I think he has enough intangibles to have a successful career in the league but that arm is never beating anyone from the pocket.

(2) Seattle and the Giants should be on the phone with Houston non-stop in an attempt to acquire left tackle Duane Brown. Brown is holding out, has told Texans he won’t report til after Week 7 and those clubs are simply desperate for OL help.

(3) How can the Saints just never get defense right? You’d think, by chance, they would stumble upon a few decent players. But that is one of the worst groups in the sport year-in-and-year out. After the first quarter yesterday, I thought Tom Brady was going to throw for 700 yards.

(4) Cam Newton should be a warning to Mitch Trubisky. It doesn’t matter how big and strong you are in the NFL. The human body can only take so many hits. Newton looks like a shell of himself.

(5) I am not sure the Packers are any good.
