The Chicago Bears need to see a lot more of this from Robert Quinn in 2021. 

Robert Quinn finally showed some bang for his buck on Sunday versus the Bengals.

Quinn recorded three tackles, one sack, two tackles for loss, and one quarterback hit in an electrifying game of quarterback pressure and line control.

Yes, he did commit an undeniably arbitrary penalty after hitting Burrow out of bounds, but that should not take away from the damage he did at the line.

Quinn officially has more sacks in the first two games of this season (2.5) than he did from the entirety of last season (1).

Sean Desai had a helping hand with Quinn’s success in this one. Especially with his first sack, when Desai called for Quinn and Mack to line up on the same side and create destruction.

Quinn’s performance should be idolized by the fact that the defensive line is shaping up to be the line fans expected it to be — dominant.

With Mack, Goldman, Hicks, and Quinn up front, nothing should be getting through the squad.

Quinn was a weak link last year, especially for the fact that he didn’t relieve any pressure off of Mack too. Now, he’s finally making meaningful plays through two weeks.
