Good news for packers? The Bears are the last in the NFL, managing an average of 566 passing yards through five games (113.2 yards per game), and rookie quarterback Justin Fields has completed no more than 12 passes in a game. But the Bears’ offensive coordinator Bill Ledger knows his offense needs to be more balanced and Fields needs more throwing opportunities.
“What you don’t want is a cautious quarterback. You want a guy who’s aggressive, but who’s smart,” Lazarus said. “His balance is the key to development. And I think (Fields) did it. Good job with him. He’s taking a few throws down the ground. We didn’t get nearly as many in this last game, but he did.
“I think he is on the right track. You have to take some shots to make some big plays. We are out of the game with a win, we are all happy. At the same time, many of us, myself included Were, looking back and saying, ‘Okay, what could I do to get a little more blast out of the game?’ That’s the balance.”
Yiadom, who entered the league with the Denver Broncos as a third-round pick out from Boston College in the 2018 NFL Draft, started 10 games for the Giants last season, scoring 46 tackles, five pass break-ups, one half sack. And was. A forced rumble.
“You always have to be prepared,” said Yidom, who has played 50 defensive snaps (15.8%) through five matches but has been a main special team player (97 snaps) throughout the season. “When you are on special teams, whenever your name and number are called, you are on a 53-man roster. You just have to be ready. No big surprise. Every game, I prepare as if I am a starter and as if I am going to start. Whenever my name is called, I will not leave a beat.
