4 things to watch: Bears-Titans

28 Août 2017

In his third preseason game, Mike Glennon found a comfort zone with the Chicago Bears that eluded him through his previous showings.

And then, just when you expected a peaceful transition of power to the kid, the clunky 6-foot-8 Glennon led one TD drive, and what a drive it was - 15 plays covering 96 yards that ate up 7 minutes, 12 seconds.

Former Alabama standout Derrick Henry has stepped in for Murray with the first-team offense during the two preseason games. On the team's next drive, he drove the Bears' 75 yards in seven plays to pay dirt.

The play calls have been different for both quarterbacks so far in the preseason as Glennon has ran more of the Bears standard playbook to where Trubisky's passing plays have been more bootlegs and shot gun pass plays.

Trubisky looked again to be everything the Bears could hope, but his development is still taking place.

Sunday's National Football League action won't feature as many prayers whispered into the ether; there's not much star power to be found despite three nationally televised games. With Trubisky taking first-team reps for the first time this week, the pressure on Glennon no doubt has intensified. Outside of that, it was great work overall in a game which the Bears defense recorded four sacks, recovered a fumble and held the Titans offense to a single touchdown and 357 total yards. He needs to step-up if the Bears want to be effective on offense.

La visite à Monaco a encore tourné au désastre, seule bonne nouvelle, Valère Germain a été applaudi par son ex-public. D'un côté Monaco qui ne veut pas laisser filer le PSG , de l'autre l'OM qui a joué jeudi soir un match important.

Does that mean Glennon is guaranteed to be the team's starting quarterback for the entire season? No. "But at no point are we going to force it to any one of them".

Trubisky, meanwhile, played two series with most of the first string at the start of the second half.

Wide receiver Harry Douglas will sit out was a knee injury.

- With the torn ACL to Cam Meredith, the Bears will be looking for help at receiver. The Bears might have drafted something special in Eddie Jackson. If they were to put him on the practice squad, an outside team would likely poach him away. In the receiving end, Cameron Meredith had 26 yards in two catches while Tanner Gentry added 19 yards in two receptions. His first possession lasted 54 seconds as he went 0-for-2 on a three-and-out.

The secondary is where the Titans renovated their roster the most this offseason, letting veteran Jason McCourty go in April. With that came increased opportunity for Roy Robertson-Harris, who has continued to impress in his move to the defensive line. With this being the dress rehearsal game, Loggains will feature a regular season game plan. He's one to keep an eye on next weekend when rosters are reduced to 53.
