If the Bears want to save their season, Young will have to rush the passer with more consistency. Last year, he was the team’s leading sacker with 10.0 on the season.
The Bears are undergoing a defensive shift this year, though. Coordinator Vic Fangio has switched the base defense from a 4-3 to a 3-4, so Young is still getting used to playing outside linebacker after five seasons (including four with the Detroit Lions) as a defensive end.
Young’s first sack of the season may be a sign that he’s getting used to his new role.
