The 2011 Sackwatch took a hit this week, as expected, with the inexperienced Caleb Hanie at quarterback. It was something we talked about last time out, that the young QBs tend to take a few sacks that they don't need to. The good news is that Hanie showed flashes of good pocket presence, and his ability to scramble out of harms way should help him out the next few weeks filling in for Jay Cutler. He just needs some experience, and playing at home should help his confidence out this week.
On to the Sackwatch!
Sack 24 - 1st Quarter 2:01 - Rolando McClain
Sack 25 - 2nd Quarter 2:44 - Richard Seymour
Sack 26 - 3rd Quarter 9:52 - Tyvon Branch

Last year the Bears also gave up 4 sacks, to the Philadelphia Eagles, so the pace remains the same. They're still well under last seasons sack total.
