Week 6 Studs and Duds

STUD: RB Khalil Herbert

With David Montgomery and Damien Williams both out this week, the backfield was left all to Khalil Herbert, and he did not waste his opportunity to shine. The rookie back out of Virginia Tech was the lone standout performer on offense, rushing 19 times for 97 yards and a touchdown. He also had two catches for 15 yards. Herbert displayed excellent vision on many runs and bounced off tacklers quite a few times to move the ball for the Bears. With Williams likely coming back next week after being put on the COVID-19 list, it will be interesting to see how many touches Herbert gets going forward. But make no mistake, Herbert has earned more playing time after this performance.

DUD: S Tashaun Gipson

Since coming back from injury last week, Tashaun Gipson has struggled at the most inopportune times. He's not tackling well and it showed up in a big way during the game. In the third quarter, Rodgers dumped the ball off to Aaron Jones in the redzone and Gipson had him dead to rights. But the safety weakly dove at the running back's legs to miss, leading to the easy score. It was the most egregious of his misses, but he's had a few on the day. With the offensive weapons the Packers have, those plays can't happen and he could see his playing time limited going forward.

STUD: TE Cole Kmet

We've been waiting for such a long time for Cole Kmet to get involved in the offensive gameplan and it finally happened on Sunday. Kmet caught four passes for 49 yards, a career high. He made an impressive leaping grab to help set up a touchdown in the fourth quarter and was a force in the middle of the field at times throughout the day. It was an encouraging sign for the second-year tight end, who hopefully will continue to see targets in the upcoming games as Fields gets more comfortable with him.

DUD: CB Jaylon Johnson

We know how amped up Jaylon Johnson is to guard Davante Adams, but the second-year cornerback has failed to live up to the challenge so far. Johnson shadowed Adams for much of the day, and it's safe to say the receiver won the battle. Adams caught four passes for 89 yards, including a key 41-yard gain where Johnson appeared to give up on the play that set up Green Bay's final score. Johnson was also beat on a 32-yard slant earlier in the game when Adams beat him off the line of scrimmage. While he's still had a good season, Johnson still has a ways to go in his development when covering the top receivers.

STUD: EDGE Robert Quinn

I think we're officially past the point of saying how surprised we are at Robert Quinn's start to the season. He continues to show up on nearly every play, both in the run and pass game. Quinn had yet another sack on the day, giving him 5.5 on the year. He also had two tackles for loss and blew up multiple plays in the backfield. He and Khalil Mack are playing as advertised and there's no reason to believe he's going to slow down anytime soon.

DUD: S Eddie Jackson

X Just once, I'd like to see Eddie Jackson make the game-changing play we saw a few years ago. Not even once every few games, just once a season at this point. Jackson continues to play well below expectations after signing his mega extension last offseason. He's still missing tackles, clearly on display on the Adams completion mentioned earlier, and he had a shot to pick off Rodgers earlier in the series, but couldn't catch up to the ball. Jackson's tackling woes, which admittedly have been somewhat better as of late, would still be excused if he was able to intercept the ball. He's an overpaid, below-average safety at this point and until he gets his hands on the ball, he'll remain one.

DUD: The Officiating Crew

I usually don't put the blame on the NFL referees often. It's a useless exercise and nobody wins in that argument. But I have to make an exception after watching them in this game. The officiating crew, led by Brad Rogers, was extremely inconsistent and downright bad for both teams. They blatantly missed an offsides call on the Packers, leading to an interception by Fields in the first half that should not have counted and also incorrectly called a personal foul on Mario Edwards Jr. after Rodgers grabbed his facemask. On the flipside, they also called a questionable offensive pass interference penalty on Packers wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown that negated a touchdown. Balls were spotted poorly on multiple occasions, timeout calls were missed, and questionable penalties were called on both teams. I understand bad calls happen from time to time, no matter how good the crew is, but Sunday was an example of why the NFL needs to hire full-time officials.

Dud: Chicago Bears Coaching Staff.  There was below average play from the safeties. run defense, offensive line and offensive strategy   Bears were not prepared to play the Packers. I know we have injuries, but so did the Packers at key positions.

Dud: Matt Nagy offensive scheme.

Another former NFL player as a color announcer, another indictment of Nagy's total incompetent offensive scheme! This time Greg Olsen showing how Fields has no safety valve when the called play is defensed by the opponents. Run somebody on a medium route, the center of the field was consistently wide open all afternoon!

Green Bay is down to their practice squad for their secondary going into the start of the 4th quarter, but Nagy and his offense can't even get enough yards on them to attempt a FG!

Nagy needs to be fired....the sooner, the better!

........some questionable calls by the refs.............

The most egregious error was a missed offsides call against the Packers. Fields saw it and believed he had a free play on his hands, so he chucked the ball deep. It was intercepted....

But the offsides call never came. Instead, it was ruled an interception and stalled momentum for a Bears team looking to take a two-possession lead.

“I think everybody in the stadium thought that was a free play,” Fields said after the game.

But that was far from the extent of the poor officiating.

It was poor ball spots. It was Justin Fields calling a timeout and the refs calling a delay of game. It was Aaron Rodgers grabbing Mario Edwards’ facemark after a play and Edwards getting called for unsportsmanlike conduct. It was a missed unnecessary roughness on Fields. It was a questionable holding call that negated a touchdown. Heck, it was even Rodgers getting away with taunting following his 6-yard touchdown run.

........ a really weak holding call to take a much-needed Bears TD away.

-No call on Rodgers grabbing Mario Edwards’ facemask -Call a personal foul on Edwards for reacting to it. -No call on Fields getting tossed around after the play was over. #Bears

Packers: Go offside. Bears turnover on free play. Refs: Packers:

Rodgers grabs DL facemask Bears DL points Refs: Taunting GB TD off the penalty.

Packers: Hit Justin Fields in the head while sliding Refs:

Bears: Call timeout Refs: Delay of game Bears moved from FG range
