Don’t look now, but Robert Quinn is off to an impressive start for the Bears this season. Through two games, Quinn has registered 2.5 sacks, which surpassed his 2.0 sacks from all of last season.
But while Quinn has gotten off to a solid start, he’s far from satisfied knowing he still has plenty to prove.
“Not much at all,” he said. “I mean, [2.5] sacks — shouldn’t be too happy about that. I’ve got a lot more work to do. I guess it’s a good starting point, but I don’t want to get too comfortable, because you’ve still gotta go out and prove yourself.”
The Bears signed Quinn to a five-year, $70 million deal last offseason to bring production to the position that Leonard Floyd hadn’t. But Quinn wound up being the biggest free-agent disappointment with just 2.0 sacks.
Last week against the Bengals, defensive coordinator Sean Desai had a new look with Khalil Mack lined up at defensive tackle and Quinn was next to him at defensive end.
“The key to making anything successful is the players and them understanding what we’re trying to get out of the plan and them executing the plan,” Desai said of the idea Thursday. “That’s the key to any of the success that we have is those guys between the lines playing hard and executing the fundamentals that we’re trying to teach.”
Quinn will be looking to continue his success against the Browns, where he could tally at least 0.5 sack in three straight games.
