My official 2022 Sackwatch doesn’t get started until the Chicago Bears play the San Francisco 49ers on September 11, and if Chicago’s pass protection holds up we’ll push that breakdown even further into the month.

This will be my twelfth year writing the series here on WCG, and thanks to the video production skills of Robert Schmitz, we’ll be adding a video element to the breakdowns on our 2nd City Gridiron Channel.
