Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs SF (2 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)

Looking back at the box score, it's somewhat surprising that Holmes only received two targets. Holmes started the game as the Bears' No. 3 wideout. He finished the game with two receptions for 20 yards, one of which went for a first down. With Marshall and Jeffery hampered by injuries, you would have thought Holmes would have been Cutler's go-to guy. He played in 74 percent of the offensive snaps, so the opportunities were there for him to create separation and find space. One thing to keep in mind is that Holmes only signed with the Bears just before Week 3 of the preseason. He's still relatively new to this offense. Perhaps he and Cutler just haven't found their rhythm yet, because if Holmes isn't getting targeted when Marshall and Jeffery aren't 100 percent, when exactly will he get targets? Holmes isn't worth of a roster spot until Cutler is willing to find him in the end zone. So stay away until then.

2014 Week 3 vs NYJ (3 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

There isn't much to see here. Holmes entered Week 3 as the Bears' No. 3 wide receiver. With Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery not quite at 100 percent due to injuries, Holmes had a chance against the Jets to make a name for himself as a Bears receiver. Holmes caught just two passes for nine yards on the night. The Bears signed Holmes hoping he could fit part of the void left when Marquess Wilson fractured his clavicle. He hasn't really filled any void. Martellus Bennett has stepped up to be the third passing option. It's time to give up on Mr. Holmes.
