What do the stats say about the 2019 Bears?

In this episode of Bear With Me, Robert brings on DaBearsBlog’s statistical guru Johnathan Wood to talk through various numbers that stuck out from 2019. What do they mean for the 2020 season? Find out below!

NFL: Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Bears fans, I think I speak for all of us when I say this offseason has felt longer than usual, but for all the waiting we’ve endured we’ve somehow made it to July, meaning football may be right around the corner.

With that in mind, I wanted to try a more... calculated approach at reviewing the Beloved (see what I did there?) by bringing on DaBearsBlog’s resident statistician, Johnathan Wood, to talk through some of the numbers that came to define the Bears throughout 2019 — in the show, we talk about...

  • The importance of explosive plays in an NFL offense, as well as the Bears’ inability to generate them...
  • How Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles compare as deep passers, YAC generators, and more...
  • Numerical milestones that rookie Cole Kmet needs to hit in 2020 to align with successful predecessors...
  • What the 2019 defense’s missed tackle stats say about each Bears defender...
  • And much, much more.

Check out the show and let me know what you think!

Did any numbers in particular stick out to you throughout 2019?
