Though the Bears linebackers have been excellent in taking down the opposing quarterbacks the main source for most teams pass rush, the defensive line has not produced one sack all year. In the absence of Philip Daniels the Bears defensive line has lacked any major pass rush, thus recording zero sacks through three games.
This week, facing the Bills Drew Bledsoe should make for an easier time in getting some sacks. Bledsoe, while considered one of the better passing quarterbacks in the league, is also considered one of the slowest and least agile starting NFL quarterbacks. Bledsoe is a true pocket passer, only fleeing the pocket when it is an absolute must. He has the fewest attempts of any starting quarterback in the NFL. Thus far, Bledsoe has recorded one rushing attempt for zero yards.
This Sunday will be the defenses golden opportunity to get some shots on Bledsoe and maybe even force a turnover or two. One final statistic that bodes well for the Bears defense, Bledsoe's only rushing attempt ended up in a fumble.
