Depth Chart Notes
- For the first time all season – I believe – there are no changes to the depth chart. That should be great news.
- The Bears were losing 20-14 at halftime last season. A 21-point third quarter and second-half shutout sound a bit lit some of this year’s games where things just haven’t clicked for a half.
- On paper, the game appears much closer than the final score. The second half included defensive and special teams touchdowns.
- The Bears have run the ball 323 times this season and thrown it 310.
- We’re going to have to replace two studs next season. Grandy and Croom are tied with 40 receptions and 6 touchdowns each. Grandy’s long is 75 yards. Croom’s is 74.
- Thomas Hart has one catch this season. Chase Dixon (with 5) has taken some of those opportunities away, but I would have predicted much more from Hart after last season.
- I don’t think I’ve mentioned it here – and it isn’t shown on the game notes – but if you haven’t noticed, Joe Carmical has moved from defensive end to full back. I’m excited about the possibilities of that for the future.
