For all the early excitement brought by the arrivals of rookies Mitch Trubisky and Tarik Cohen,Authentic Shon Coleman Jersey, it’s hard not to feel a bit letdown after the Bears’ final cuts of the preseason Saturday.

The quarterback position has been upgraded if for no other reason than Trubisky is the man of the future the Bears have lacked for years, and Mike Glennon is an upgrade over Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley.womens Cameron Erving Jersey,

Running back feels good with Jordan Howard ready to anchor the offense in his second season and a change-of-pace option in Cohen provides the Bears an option they haven’t had in a while.

The tight end spot is better,Authentic Cameron Erving Jersey,too,but it’s still not exciting and second-round pick Adam Shaheen is a lot farther away from contributing than we were led to believe.,with the arrival of free agent Dion Sims and return to health of Zach Miller

After that...Authentic Duke Johnson Jersey,

Over the summer and early in Bourbonnais,womens Xavier Cooper Jersey, veteran free agents Victor Cruz, undrafted rookie free agent Tanner Gentry and a return to health from Lamarr Houston offered great promise., Rueben Randle and Jaye Howard

Now all are gone.

Wide receiver is a big disappointment with a lackluster performance from Kevin White, season-ending injuries to Cameron Meredith and Randle. Markus Wheaton missed most of the action most in training camp.

While the special teams contributions of Josh Bellamy and Deonte Thompson are easy to envision, keeping both of them over Gentry at receiver is disappointing.

Throughout the offseason it looked like the offensive line would be one of the strengths of these Bears, but a much slower than hoped for rehabilitation from offseason ankle surgery for Kyle Long and a season-ending injury to his backup Eric Kush has left the line in flux.

Journeyman tackle Tom Compton has been given time at Long’s left guard spot,,womens Shon Coleman Jersey as has Hroniss Grasu, Cody Whitehair slid over with Grasu going in at center., and when neither impressed

Unfortunately, either., womens Danny Shelton JerseyWhitehair didn’t transition to guard nearly as well as he did to center last year and Grasu didn’t impress over the ball

The most important question is when will we see Long, because when he is ready,>Authentic Danny Shelton Jersey, albeit a dangerously thin one.,Authentic Nate Orchard Jersey,the O-line can still be a strength

Until Long gets back,Authentic Xavier Cooper Jersey,Authentic Jaylon Smith Jersey, and we hope at center with Whitehair.,, this group is only set at right guard and right tackle with Josh Sitton and Bobby Massie

The loss of long snapper Patrick Scales to an ACL injury is disappointing, and the peek at Roberto Aguayo was a waste of just under half a million bucks leaving the uninspiring Connor Barth at placekicker.,womens Nate Orchard Jersey

The defensive front was looking much improved with the arrival of Jaye Howard, return to health of Eddie Goldman and dramatic improvements from Johnathan Bullard and Roy Robertson-Harris.womens Jaylon Smith Jersey

But with Bullard and Mitch Unrein banged up the last couple of weeks, and Goldman has to show up a lot more than he has., the release of Howard is a bit of a surprisewomens Duke Johnson Jersey,

Linebacker is better because Leonard Floyd is much improved and Danny Trevathan will be back soon, but how much to expect from Pernell McPhee is a huge question. That makes the failure of Houston to make it all the way back that much more disappointing.

The talent in the secondary appears to be upgraded and rookie safety Eddie Jackson shows promise, and Quintin Demps’ play has been uneven., but Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper have both been wounded and limited at times

Kyle Fuller had the best training camp of any Bears defensive back, so how improved is this group?

With only five wide receivers -–realistically only three you’d want on the field – and five tight ends plus a fullback currently, most likely prior to the opener against Atlanta., it’s clear there will be a few more changes to the team’s 53-man roster

That’s a good thing. Because for the moment, this group leaves you feeling a little flat at best.
