Kyle Long


A knock on Marc Trestman this season is that the coach’s Bears offense has been predictable, to the point of opponents declaring that they knew much of what was coming from his offense.


Not since the Green Bay game in 2012 when his blind side was in the hands of J’Marcus Webb has Jay Cutler been pummeled this badly by a pass rush.


One of the stable givens of the 2013 season obviously was the offensive line, and when 2014 began the same starting five were in place.


Pass blocking was generally solid; run blocking was disastrous. Combining those two extremes into one evaluation is difficult.


When Henry Melton was last in Chicago, he was wearing a Bears uniform, coming off a Pro Bowl season and playing under a franchise tag.
