Robert Quinn and Dent’s Rule of Three

In his latest video breakdown, Robert S. takes a hard look at the Bears’ new edge rusher, Robert Quinn. To say the least, he likes what he sees.

Earlier today the Bears officially inked Robert Quinn to his 5-year deal, locking in the former Ram and Cowboy’s services for the 2020 season and beyond.

Coincidentally, I also happened to release a Quinn video breakdown about fifteen minutes earlier, so the timing couldn’tve been better!

As you likely know, about two weeks ago the Bears made the bold decision to part ways with former 9th overall pick Leonard Floyd in favor of signing Dallas Cowboys’ standout defensive end Robert Quinn. When I first saw the signing, I was excited — I’d just spent weeks watching offensive tackles for Leno’s breakdown, so I loosely knew who Quinn was and was excited to take a closer look. But as I dove deeper and deeper into Quinn’s film, I only became more and more excited to see what he could do in a Bears’ uniform — not to spoil my own video, but if Robert Quinn, Khalil Mack, and Akiem Hicks play to their potential in 2020 we could be looking at the NFL’s next dominant “Rule of Three” defense.

But what does Quinn do that makes him so special? Is he really that much better than Leonard Floyd? And how should the Bears use him, given that the majority of his experience comes from playing 4-3 defensive end? I answer all these questions and more inside the video — check it out and let me know what you think!

Now it’s YOUR turn — what do you think about Robert Quinn? Are you excited to see him in Navy and Orange?
