We’re nearly halfway home as “The Best Chicago Bears Of All Time By Jersey Number” series rolls on into the 40s. We’ve got some retired numbers, the pair that made every person who’s seen Brian’s Song cry, and the worst rapper in the history of the world. If you’re just joining the series, I’ve been going through every single uniform number and essentially doing my own version of “Who Wore It Best?”. As I’ve mentioned previously, these are just my opinion and I’m sure some of you will disagree with me, but that’s been some of the fun in doing this. To get yourself caught up, just click the links below. Enjoy.
Per @SportsInfo_SIS, rookies Roquan Smith, Tremaine Edmunds, and Darius Leonard were the 3 most-targeted LBs in coverage with 58, 57, and 56 targets. Smith allowed 9 fewer completions and 144 fewer yards than Edmunds, and 4 fewer completions and 81 fewer yards than Leonard.
