Week 3: vs Pittsburgh Steelers

All QB vs PIT

FBG says: Tough matchup. This week, coach John Fox signed off on Mike Glennon remaining his starter. It's unclear why that is, though; Glennon has been mediocre at best through two games. He's completed a studly-looking 67.1% of his throws, but that number has been inflated by checkdowns and prevent defenses. Glennon has produced just 6.05 yards per attempt, and that's only the tip of the iceberg. He's also lost three turnovers (two interceptions) and absorbed five sacks - including one in the red zone to end the team's 23-17 loss in Week 1. Not all of this is Glennon's fault, of course. The Bears have been ravaged by injuries to receivers, and he played Week 2 without top offensive lineman Kyle Long, who is tentatively expected to return this weekend. But Glennon is bringing nothing positive to the table, failing to make much happen downfield (only 3 completions traveling 15+ yards beyond the line) and hemorrhaging turnovers. With a lack of difference-making receivers - Kendall Wright - it's hard to find any optimism. We should see rookie Mitchell Trubisky sooner rather than later; considering Glennon's turnover-fest in Week 2, it could be as soon as this Sunday. The Steelers' pass defense would definitely feel the loss of rookie edge rusher T.J. Watt, who's questionable with a groin injury that knocked him out of Week 2, but it wouldn't doom them. Watt's high-energy play and pass-rush chops have been huge for the team, but they're flushed with pass-rush options that can step in admirably. Cameron Heyward has been a demon on the front line, while Bud Dupree and Anthony Chickillo have taken turns making splash plays in the pass game. We'll likely get a James Harrison sighting, too, if Watt can't go or aggravates the injury in-game. In the secondary, things are dicier. We can't gauge much from their Week 2 matchup with the anemic Case Keenum, and there's little to fear in this atrocious Bears passing game. But the cover men - especially cornerback Joe Haden, who was worked over by Corey Coleman in Week 1 - will need to avoid missteps down the field.

Bears | Week 2 Inactives (Sun Sep 17, 11:34 AM) - The Chicago Bears have declared RB Benny Cunningham, FS Deon Bush, DL John Jenkins, OG Kyle Long, QB Mark Sanchez, WR Markus Wheaton, CB Prince Amukamara inactive for Week 2.

Bears | Week 1 Inactives (Sun Sep 10, 11:49 AM) - The Chicago Bears have declared DL John Jenkins, OG Kyle Long, QB Mark Sanchez, WR Markus Wheaton, CB Prince Amukamara, RB Taquan Mizzell, WR Tre McBride inactive for Week 1.

Our View: Julio Jones, Matt Ryan and the Atlanta passing game in general should have an easier time of it with Amukamara out. Kyle Long's absence will hamper the Bears offense, especially when they are running the ball.
