predefinito What to watch in the HOF game The Hall of Fame

Unfortunately White Pat O’Donnell Jerseys , it is also a preseason game, right up there with the fourth preseason game, as the worst of the bunch, with many starters being held out and tons of backup and end-of-roster guys getting long looks. It usually more closely resembles a low-level college game than an NFL game.However, that shouldn’t be a fly in any starved football fan’s bowl of Cheerios. There’s still plenty of interesting things to keep an eye on.OffenseMitchell Trubisky may not even see the field tonight to give fans a brief glimpse of where he’s at in processing this new offense, but his back ups, Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray, should get long looks.Both back ups have spent a good amount of time in Matt Nagy’s offense and that means they should command it pretty well. So, even without a game plan, playcalling could be relatively open, unless the coaches really want to reserve what’s on film.Keep an eye on formations and personnel. Reports from camp say that there has been a ton of substitutions and personnel packages. Tonight will be the first shot at getting a look at how certain position groups are used (see TEs, RBs) as well as how they line up. Look out for lots of presnap motions and, of course, those “kill, kill, kill” calls and/or RPO looks after the snap.Tempo will be another thing to watch: will coaches want to go up tempo just to practice real game situations with play calls from the sideline and lining up with a ticking clock.DefensePreseason defenses are typically quite vanilla and there’s a good chance that doesn’t change much Kyle Long Jerseys 2019 , but playcalling could be worth watching here.Vic Fangio finally gets full say over his unit, after the past three seasons working under John Fox, where it was rumored the former coach meddled in the defensive calls.Will Fangio show different looks or personnel sets here? There’s certainly not going to be a ton of blitzing but there’s still some new wrinkles that might show up.Also watch out for the flags: how will these new helmet contact rules be called? Is it going to be a sloppy penalty-fest? The referees are the same ones that spent time with the Bears in Bourbonnais so there should be a level of familiarity there.Special teamsLots of the bottom of the roster players and UDFA guys will get a chance to make the squad in the third phase here. Check out Jacob Infante’s great series looking at some of those players. There’s also plenty of intrigue as this will be the first look at the new kickoff rules. Will players false start or are they used to now waiting until it’s kicked. Even downing the ball has changed.So dismiss the game as bad football all you want, but there is still plenty to learn about these new-look Chicago Bears in Canton tonight. One day after the regular season ends, an obscure anniversary will arrive for the NFL.December 31, 1988. The Fog Bowl.During the second quarter of a wild-card playoff game between the Eagles and Bears on New Year’s Eve nearly 30 years ago, a dense fog rolled in to Soldier Field. The thick blanket of excessively liquified air dramatically reduced visibility. The unusual and intriguing development quickly melted to a virtually unwatchable game, televised by CBS and called by Verne Lundquist and Terry Bradshaw.The unwatchable game between Mike Ditka’s Bears and Buddy Ryan’s Eagles can be watched in full, with the stunningly clear pre-fog conditions becoming a white soup of the sort that hasn’t happened in a playoff game since then. (Fog marred a Sunday night game 14 months ago between the Falcons and Patriots in New England, but a quick switch by NBC to the overheard camera on cables saved the day.)The first postseason Fog Bowl reunion happened seventeen years ago, when Andy Reid’s Eagles beat Dick Jauron’s Bears in a divisional-round matchup at Soldier Field. On Sunday, if the Eagles outscore Washington and the Bears upend the Vikings (and if the Rams don’t lose to the 49ers), a pair of Andy Reid proteges, Doug Pederson and Matt Nagy, will meet at Soldier Field for only the second Eagles-Bears playoff game since New Year’s Eve 1988.
