Beep Beep- Bear's Offense Has Burners

After Matt Nagy was hired in 2018, adding speed to the roster was a focus in the offseason. The Bears signed Taylor Gabriel, nicknamed turbo, because of his 4.27 40-yard time and his use as a deep threat in Atlanta. As you saw in the 2018 season, Gabriel was that deep threat for the Bears, catching 7 passes for over 20 yards and another 3 for over 40 yards. Pairing his and Tarik Cohen's speed with more polished gritty receivers, like Anthony Miller and Allen Robinson, gave Chicago's offense the spark it's been looking for.

Graph comparing Chicago Bears players and their 40 times, to the average 40 time of the position they play.

Ryan Pace has made some under the radar and cap friendly signings, adding another two burners in 2019. The additions of Cordarrelle Patterson, and Marvin Hall called for a deeper investigation on how much speed the Bears offense can offer in 2019. Bears fans are excited to see how these small pieces will fill into Matt Nagy's offense and how many players will catch a touchdown... my guess? 11!
