Chuck Pagano’s de­fense

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

Op­ti­mist: Even with Gold­man opt­ing out be­cause of COVID-19, the re­turn of Hicks and lineback­ers Smith and Danny Tre­vathan, the ad­di­tion of Quinn and the growth of safety Ed­die Jack­son pro­vide a boost that re­vives the take­away bite (28-30) the Bears lost in 2019.

Pes­simist: Gold­man’s ab­sence, a cou­ple of key in­juries and early ag­ing turn the once-vaunted Bears front seven into an av­er­age unit, which ex­poses holes in the sec­ondary. Still in the up­per half of the NFL but not the elite unit it used to be.
