With Frank Omiyale headed to the bench and Josh Beekman becoming the starting left guard, I thought it would be good to dig up some statistics when it comes to pass protection.

Stats Inc. keeps track of the statistic and it should be noted that it’s a subjective analysis. Thus far, the Bears have allowed 11 sacks of quarterback Jay Cutler, putting them on pace to have 29. That’s the same number they allowed last season with a very different line. The numbers never add up to the exact total because some sacks are deemed coverage sacks or pinned on the quarterback, not a lineman or a blocker.

Here is how the Bears break down right now protecting Cutler:

Orlando Pace 2 1/2

Greg Olsen 2

Garrett Wolfe 2

Chris Williams 1

Roberto Garza 1/2

Olin Kreutz 1/2

Frank Omiyale 1/2

Here is how Stats broke down the pass protection last season for Kyle Orton (and one game of Rex Grossman)

John St. Clair 10

John Tait 6

Roberto Garza 2 1/2

Josh Beekman 1 1/2

Greg Olsen 1

Olin Kreutz 0
