Tarik Cohen - RB - CHI

Recommended Posts

He looks really comfortable catching down field and has to be a tough matchup coming out of the backfield.

Tarik Cohen rushed one time for no gain and caught 3-of-5 targets for 27 yards in the Bears' Wild Card loss to the Eagles.

Just four touches for Cohen on a day the Bears ran 63 plays is not good. Cohen is the Bears' most electric offensive playmaker, but coach Matt Nagy curiously didn't design many plays for him in this one. Cohen was fun as a rookie last year but was even better in Year 2 with a more imaginative offense. Cohen had 444 yards and three touchdowns on 100 carries in 17 games and caught 74 balls for 752 yards and five more scores. Cohen made the All-Pro first team as a returner, leading the league in punt return yards. Cohen is an exciting fantasy piece, but his floor was really low in a Bears offense that spreads the ball around so much.

Maybe if he touched the ball more they would have scored more than 16 points.

Yep. Bad gameplan. No Burton and you don't use Cohen? Even dumber is why was Mizell even out there at all?

Mizell and Cunningham on a huge third down carry was puzzling. I'd felt like he scaled back Cohen's usage the last two weeks of the season due to getting him fresh for playoffs and also not wanting to show your hand.  Seeing his odd lack of usage and those scrub's in the game made me wonder if Cohen was banged up in some way but if he is he sure does not show it.

No excuse for the lack of usage. Nagy just isn't that good of a coach. Cohen has proven all year he's their best offensive weapon and when they use him the offense looks much better. Everybody but Nagy sees that apparently........

CHI played not to lose.  They figured scoring 14 or so points would be enough to win.....they were wrong.

No clue why Cohen wasn't involved more in the passing game.  He's such a mismatch against any LB.
