Other players that stood out

A lot has been made about Cody Whitehair‘s ability to snap the football to Trubisky. Obviously, while it sounds so minor, it’s huge because a bad snap can completely throw off the timing of a play. Per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Whitehair used a new technique called the “dead snap, holding the nose of the ball and almost flipping it back.”

The bad news, though, is that Whitehair still had a pair of bad snaps amidst other solid ones. That will continue to be something to watch.

Also, it appears that Roy Robertson-Harris is starting to separate himself from Jonathan Bullard. Robertson-Harris had 1.5 sacks and was able to push the pocket. Meanwhile, Bullard continues to play inconsistently. Personally, I would’ve brought back Mitch Unrein, but general manager Ryan Pace and defensive coordinator Vic Fangio clearly thought one of those two could take a step forward, and it seems to be Robertson-Harris.

Linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe also stood out against the Broncos. With him being a fourth-round draft pick, I don’t see him being placed on the practice squad, which means he’s battling John Timu. Unfortunately for Timu, Iyiegbuniwe had a nice game. He showed good range in coverage and instincts in the run game. He had three tackles in the game.
