Patrick Finley at the Chicago Sun-Times takes us through 10 Bears question marks:
“9. Who on the Bears can make the Pro Bowl?
“Tracy Porter, maybe? No Bears player leads their position group in fan voting, which runs through Tuesday on NFL.com. Only two NFC North players do: Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Packers linebacker Clay Matthews.”
Porter is the 36th ranked cornerback in the league of 118 rated according to Pro Football Focus. Kyle Long is also in the middle of the pack at tackle. Not that that’s the definitive reference. But its all we’ve got.
Porter isn’t one of the top cornerbacks in the league. Indeed, as far as I can tell, the Bears have no Pro Bowlers at all. I consider this to be yet another demonstration of how effective the coaching staff has been at extracting the most out of what talent they have been given.
