This game will feature a quarterback and running back who took their division and league by storm, by smashing franchise records. But so far this season, everything looks more like a dude offensively for this team.
You can’t count out teams who have had terrible offenses this season before they head into a game against the Chicago Bears. Yeah I love my Bears and believe in them, but they continue to give up big plays both through the air and on the ground.
Last week the Giants only averaged around 40 or so rushing yards per game while we only allowed 58 per game as a defensive unit. Brandon Jacobs who hasn’t had a 100 yard rushing game since Week 14 against the Dallas Cowboys in 2011, rushed for over 100 yards against the Chicago Bears last Thursday night.
The monster of a running back actually took D.J. Williams out of the game after colliding with him as he attempted to pick up more yardage after contact and tore his pectoral muscle.
With Williams out, rookie linebacker Jonathan Bostic is ready to step up. According to Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago, Bostic says he feels more and more ready each and every day. Which is a good thing. He’s showed us a lot of good things in the pre-season.
Jon Bostic tells reporters he feels “more and more ready each and every day” at MLB. He takes over for the injured D.J. Williams.

Not only is he able to drop back into coverage and handle the middle of the field well, he’s willing to knock the helmet off the opposing player in hopes of jarring the ball loose. When he entered the game against the New York Giants, I believe one of his first tackles he recorded was against Brandon Jacobs.
Jacobs tried to run through one defender as he leaned over trying to drive forward but Bostic stuck the tackle, stood him straight up and drove him onto his back to stop him for a short gain. This man is a powerful human being.
If both Briggs and Bostic go in an all out linebackers blitz against the Redskins on Sunday, Washington better have Cousins up and throwing because RG3 won’t last long.
Jon Bostic was born to be a Chicago Bear.
