“He is well into his second year with the Bears, but, after missing all but six quarters of play last season due to knee problems, Gabe Carimi is still a rookie in terms of NFL game experience. He has only 3½ regular-season games under his belt, and his inexperience showed in Week Two, when he lost his composure after being pushed by Packers ILB A.J. Hawk. He shoved Hawk, drawing an unnecessary roughness penalty that interrupted a Bears drive. The Bears want to see more consistency from the 2011 first-round pick, who acknowledged his surgically repaired knee is not completely out of mind and that he is trying to keep a narrow focus as a young player still getting acclimated. ‘This year, I’m still … I’m getting over a knee injury,’ he told PFW heading into Week Two. ‘I don’t worry about anything other than what I’m doing.'”
Not only do the Bears need more consistency from Carimi, they need their entire offensive line to step up their play.
