Cruz and Rube

RR and Cruz with some catches. Cruz with a TD.

Good for them. Glad they're performing. Cruz has a chance to be a real weapon for the Bears. New life. Good for him.

Trubisky has a rifle.

Glennon is Garrrrrbaaaage.

I was really impressed with Trubisky.

It's just one preseason game and he played against backups - but the reads and the throws were really on point.

The Bears supposedly didn't want to play him this year and use it as a developmental year - but I don't think Glennon and Sanchez will leave them much choice. The fans are going to be clamoring for him as soon as they lose one game.

Also, in classic Randle fashion, it looked like he cut his route off too short and didn't score because of it.

At least he caught the ball? Idk.
So far all the rookie QBs that I sas have looked good.

Trubisky, Watson, Kizer just threw a bomb. Good for them. But, yes, happy to see Cruz playing well and Randle had a near TD. Cruz had a big drop though where he could have had a big gain. It seemed like there was a lot of room in front to run if he just hung onto the pass. Still, quality start so far for him.
To be fair to Glennon, he was going against the Broncos 1st team

defense and they were playing a surprising number of their starters. On the pick, he got hit by 2 guys at the same time.
Just watched highlights of all his throws

He looked very good. Got his head around quick on play action and threw 20 yard darts. Threw a couple guys open read the coverage well. There is no denying his arm talent and physical traits.
I hope Cruz makes the Bears roster

I doubt Randel will.
Cruz looked

Didn't do much IMO but the TD makes him look ok. He is done

Just like in a regular season game that would count. So Glennon showed us what to expect this year.

Also, Trubisky looked good, made some good throws and good choices. Granted, we won't know if his choices and throws will be as good against 1st team rushers behind the Chicago line.

Also, Cruz and Randle looked good in the second half against the backups, but those guys needed to be starters on the Giants.
Cruz did a nice job separating from his defenders  
Jimmy Googs : 8/11/2017 9:33 am : link
on that TD catch.

Just like last season...
I didn't know  
Carson53 : 8/11/2017 9:33 am : link
Randle was even good enough to have a nickname of Rube, wow.
I hope Cruz can stick with the Bears, they were playing him on
the outside last night? I figured they would put him in the slot, when they signed him. Maybe they will, first game.
...

this is more indicative of how awful the bears roster is

Cruz I'll always be a fan of - incredible story, awful injury. Hope he makes it.
I don't think Cruz has much left  
Mike from Ohio : 8/11/2017 9:57 am : link
but I will be rooting for him to do well.
