Bears get DE Robert Quinn some action, plus other notes from the Seahawks game
The Bears’ pass rush looked good with Quinn and Al-Quadin Muhammad playing together for the first time. Matt Eberflus misses a challenge opportunity. And Trevor Siemian has looked competent as the backup quarterback.
SEATTLE — The Bears hammered one of the few teams in the NFL widely expected to be worse than them this season in their victory over the Seahawks on Thursday. Beyond the first-team offense finally scoring and the mixed results for their rookies, here are three quick hits from the game:
Pass rush rolls
The Bears finally got their top pass-rushing combo on the field together as Robert Quinn made his preseason debut alongside Al-Quadin Muhammad (above). Muhammad had three tackles, including a nine-yard sack.
Eberflus misses one
Coach Matt Eberflus said he’d be using the preseason to acclimate to his new responsibilities, but he and his staff missed a perfect opportunity to challenge a call. When backup quarterback Trevor Siemian (above) threw incomplete to Isaiah Coulter on third-and-eight in the second quarter, replay showed Coulter did, in fact, keep the ball off the turf for what should have been a catch.
Siemian stays steady
If the Bears need to go to Siemian at some point, he has looked competent. He completed 8 of 15 passes for 48 yards and a touchdown.
