There's been some iffiness with one of the cornerback positions for the Chicago Bears this season, specifically the CB opposite of Charles Tillman. Zack Bowman was benched earlier this year for Tim Jennings, and Jennings seemed to make the most of his opportunity. As Bears fans, we'd have to think that Bowman would figure in to the long-term plans of the team, but with him missing another game yesterday due to injury, Jennings again stepped up and made his case to be a starter for the rest of the season. Jennings still has some work to do, and still is not fully developed in the position, but the more snaps he gets under his belt, the better off he'll be.
His numbers from yesterday:
9 tackles (7 solo)
1 tackle for a loss
2 pass deflections
1 INT with a 39 yard return
The offense did some good things as well, and there were several defensive players who were considered for the game ball, but we decided to go with Jennings this week. Who would you have handed out game balls to?
