Bears Inactives

Not dressing for the game today are:
OG Herman Johnson
OG Edwin Williams
WR Devin Aromashodu
DT Marcus Harrison
CB Joshua Moore
RB Kahlil Bell
DE Corey Wootton

QB Caleb Hanie is the emergency 3rd QB.

Obviously, the Bears are showing 2 things: 1) They don’t trust that Chris Harris can get through the game, so they activated Steltz, an extra safety; and 2) they plan to use Dez Clark in some 2 TE sets on offense.

    I think its also instincts. You have to have a feel for the game to be a good safety. I think thats why Harris has been so good this year and why I think Steltz would be if given a chance. I think they have instinct. Harris is more of a bull in a China shop. He has it on one setting.

    Yeah he’s a hard hitter and thats it. I find it amazing to her he hasn’t made a play on the ball yet. No Fumble recoveries, pass break ups or INT’s. Thats incredible for a safety in this system especially.

    • well i think safeties in this system have alot to think about. thats why mike brown and chris harris are so good in it and danieal manning have had trouble.

    It could also be a decoy with Clark. Get the Packers Capers to over think things. I do think Clark factors large in some way shape or form. I knew DA would sit too. I still see a few 3 to 4 WR sets. I think you can also include 5 WR sets when adding Clark and especially Olsen to the mix as they both are essentially WR’s. Bears are a tough match up for any defense. Lots of diversity.

    • I think the fact that Steltz is active means that the Bears expect Major Wright to log serious snaps at safety, and need Steltz for special teams.

        Perhaps. I do feel Harris will be in all obvious passing situations unless he’s forced out because he can’t go. I think the cortizone will keep him out there though.

      • I hope so. judging by his play so far, his name should be minor wright.
