Breaking down Thomas Graham Jr’s big day

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports

By this point you’ve probably heard about Chicago Bears’ rookie CB Thomas Graham Jr’s debut performance — whether it was the stats he recorded on Monday night (3 pass-breakups, 10 yards allowed), his ridiculous 90.7 PFF game grade, or simply how comfortable he looked moving around in the defensive backfield, Graham’s first start made waves for both it’s rare quality and... “unique” timing (where has he been all season?)

But as many have mentioned across Bears’ nation, this was only one game — was Graham’s success just beginner’s luck, the product of a “practice squad” reputation and no tape for the offense to exploit? Or do the Bears have a potential starter on their hands? I broke down all 3 of Graham’s pass-breakups from Monday Night Football in an attempt to answer that question in my latest video — check it out below and let me know what you think!
