big part of Chicago's offense and the star running back was adamant he wasn't frustrated despite a limited role in the most recent victory."This is not going to be an offense where it's just one person and it goes through one person Authentic Leonard Floyd Jersey ," Nagy said Monday. "I don't necessarily believe in that. It's great when you have everybody fulfilling different roles and it's hard for the defense when you do that."The Bears (3-1) own sole possession of the NFC North lead for the first time since late in the 2013 season, with three straight wins. Coming off a bye, they hope to keep rolling when they visit Miami on Sunday.Chicago matched its longest win streak since a 3-0 start in 2013 with a 48-10 romp over Tampa Bay two weeks ago. Mitchell Trubisky broke out with six touchdown passes — one shy of the NFL record. Tarik Cohen added a career-high 121 yards receiving to go with 53 rushing, and the Bears came away with their most lopsided victory in six years.As good as that sounds for Chicago, something else stood out: Howard's small role.He carried 11 times for 25 yards and was in on 33 of 61 plays. Howard didn't talk to reporters after that game, and players were not available to the media until Monday."No, I wasn't frustrated," Howard said. "I was happy. We won. You see how much we won by. So there's not really nothing to complain about."With more than 2,600 yards rushing since the Bears took him in the fifth round in 2016, Howard has been one of general manager Ryan Pace's most successful draft picks. He ran for 1,122 yards last season after finishing second in the NFL with 1,313 as a rookie.But there were also questions how he would fit in Nagy's system after struggling in the passing game his first two seasons. Howard's name came up in offseason trade rumors, and Bears-related photos disappeared from his Instagram account at one point, though he insisted there was nothing to it and wouldn't acknowledge removing the pictures.Howard has shown improvement catching the ball but hasn't found a rhythm running it. With 203 yards on 64 attempts, he is averaging 3.2 per attempt. That's well below his career average of 4.5 yards.Howard has run the ball 15 times or less in three of the four games and hasn't rushed for more than 82 yards this season."Jordan understands what we're trying to do as a team," Nagy said. "And he also understands, and we've talked http://www.authenticschicagobears.com/ch.... , that he has a major part of this offense. He has a big-time role. But if it's an advantage to us to go a different direction for that game or for that play or that series, we're going to do that."It's hard to argue with what the Bears did against Tampa Bay. They saw an opening against a banged-up secondary and got huge games from Trubisky and Cohen, even if it meant a light day for Howard."The majority of the games, he gets more workload than I do," Cohen said. "He understands some games are different. We felt like their secondary was banged-up, so that's what happened, we're gonna attack them."That's something they probably couldn't have done last season. But the Bears brought in more play-making pass catchers and hired an offense-minded coach after firing John Fox.They have more options now and don't necessarily need to rely on the run as much."If we want to put him in the game and use him for a certain advantage, we'll do that and that could be first, second or third down," Nagy said. "There's other times where it doesn't fit that way. It just so happened this past game that ... Tarik got more plays in regards to getting the ball to him, and he was productive. But that has nothing to do with what Jordan Howard is doing. Jordan Howard is a big part of this offense."NOTES: WR Anthony Miller (shoulder) and CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) did light work at practice. Both players sat out the Tampa Bay game. ... The Bears placed LB Sam Acho (torn pectoral muscle) on injured reserve and signed OL Bryan Witzmann.Bears Rush Report 2018: Week 4 vs the Buccaneers The Bears offense FINALLY showed up last Sunday, but that doesn’t meant that the defense was silent. Not only did the Bears defense hold the #1 scoring offense to 10 measly point—3 if you don’t count the garbage time touchdown—but they snagged 4 more sacks to add to their NFL-leading total of 18 through 4 games. But that wasn’t all, the front-7 accounted for another forced fumble and 3 interceptions, as Akiem Hicks put serious pressure to force the throw that Eddie Jackson jumped. All-in-all, it was another banner performance from this phenomenal front!Let’s get to the fun, shall we?Week 4 at the BuccaneersSack 1 - First quarter 7:11 (2nd & 15) - Akiem HicksHicks beats right guard Caleb Benenoch almost immediately. Watch Hicks’ hands closely as he swipes Benenoch’s hands away before beating him with an outside rip move. This is just about as bad as you can beat another player one-on-one. Sack 2 - Second quarter 11:33 (3rd & 11) - Khalil MackI am starting to get a feel for what Khalil Mack does. He has several signature moves, and this is another one. He sets up the right tackle Demar Dotson by getting straight up-field Youth Taylor Gabriel Jersey , instead of trying to cut the edge early. The reason he does this is to get the tackle to “over-set” and turn his back towards the line of scrimmage. At this point, he has a huge head-of-steam built up and converts that speed-to-power, and obliterate his opponent. Watch the still shot where you can see where Mack has a chunk of jersey, and has Dotson under control from the snap of the ball. The finish with the swipe for his 4th-consecutive strip-sack is otherworldly. Sack 3 - Third quarter 7:49 (1st & 10) - Roy Robertson-Harris & Bilal NicholsInitially it looks like Eddie Goldman and Aaron Lynch are going to win on this play but just a few frames later and it’s completely flipped. Bilal Nichols stright bull rushes Benenoch back into Jameis Winston, while RRH slow plays left tackle Donovan Smith and gives a quick swim move to get inside leverage. If it wasn’t for RRH losing his balance, Winston might have not gotten up from the hit that was coming. But this was a great effort all around and both players deserve the credit for this sack. Sack 4 - Third quarter 0:16 (1st & 10) - Aaron LynchThis is a great effort from the front-4 here. Lynch, who ends up with the sack, never gives up and ends up with the reward, but he isn’t the only one with a great effort on this play. His outside rip move beats Dotson, but Winston steps up and he has to work back around. Leonard Floyd appears to get held 2 separate times on this play, and almost notches his first sack of the season. And outside, RRH is playing patty cake until he helps finish Winston off. Pressure of the WeekThird quarter 11:19 (1st & 10) - Khalil MackCould have gone with the aforementioned Hicks play, but this one directly lead to the interception. Mack almost got his second swipe strip-sack of the game, but this works just as well. He got just enough of the ball to have it float into Danny Trevathan’s hands for the interception. For some reason, pulling left guard Ali Marpet to block Mack seemed like a good idea to Dirk Koetter. Mack takes him on, swims to the outside and then set his sights on Winston’s right arm.
