Can the Bears awaken their two sleeping giants? The giants I am referring to are two of their new acquisitions at receiver. Equanimeous St. Brown who stands at 6’5 and N’Keal Harry who is 6’4. Both had great college careers but have struggled in the NFL thus far. Can the Bears get them to reach their potential?
St. Brown has come to town
St. Brown played his college days at the university of Notre Dame. As an Irish fan myself I personally watched the majority of St. Browns career, and he was a human highlight reel. The fact he was taken in the 7th round shocked me. The bears hired former Packers offensive coach Luke Getsy this off season, a man that has been with St. Brown almost his entire career. He said ” EQ had a tremendous year last year. In his growth, and his maturity. I was so excited we snagged him. That’s a big guy that can run”. Hopefully Getsy can help unlock the full potential of the towering St. Brown.
N’Keal can be the real deal
Harry was a first round pick of the Patriots just a few seasons ago. He only played with Tom Brady for one season but in that time Brady tweeted he was the best receiver he ever played with. Then Harry was caught up in the Patriots struggle to find a Brady replacement, and last season it was clear the Patriots had given up on him. Like St. Brown, Harry was a human highlight reel in college making play after play.
One thing that isn’t in question, is these big boys can block. Using those monster frames to push opposing cornerbacks all over the field. Why haven’t they done more? Well it’s hard to blame the quarterbacks especially in St. Brown’s case playing with Rodgers. However, Rodgers is a surgeon, a taction. He has amazing accuracy and likes crisp route runners he can hit on the fly. Plus he had one of the best receivers in Adams to go to. Both St. Brown and Harry are big receivers that like to go get the ball and create the play themselves. They need a gunslinger type quarterback that likes to show off his arm. Like Favre, or Cutler, or Justin Fields.
