Bears rookie guard Kyle Long on Pro Football Focus all-preseason team*

SHARE Bears rookie guard Kyle Long on Pro Football Focus all-preseason team*

If there’s a way to quantify football performance, Pro Football Focus will find it. But the football-geek web site’s all-preseason team, perhaps inadvertently, illustrates the futility of measuring any performance in NFL exhibition games: two of the players “honored” were cut.

Bears rookie right guard Kyle Long not only was named one of the starting guards on the all-preseason team, but he was tied for the highest rating of any offensive player on the team (+7.9, whatever that means). The other player with a +7.9 was tackle Tony Pashos, the former Lockport and Illinois star, who was cut by the Redskins. So was the PFF all-preseason center, Kevin Matthews.

No other Bears were named to PFF’s all-preseason team. Former Bears practice squad player Will Ta’ufo’ou made the team at fullback.
