Israel Idonije had himself a game on Sunday—a game he will not soon forget.
Idonije had 2.5 sacks, as well as 4 solo tackles, and he hit Sam Bradford, the starting quarterback for the St. Louis Rams, four times during the game.
There has been a lot of noise made about the Bears and their new offense, but Sunday's victory showed us that the team is the same as they've always been as far as defense goes, and Idonije is a huge part of that.
When the defense gets pressure, the Bears do well.
On Sunday, the Bears had a total of six team sacks, which means that more than a third of those total team sacks belonged to, none other than, Israel Idonije, and the Bears could not have a better player to compliment Julius Peppers on the defensive line.
If Idonije keeps this up, it will be almost impossible for teams to put up big numbers on the defense of Chicago. Idonije showed today that he can play just as well as Peppers does and be a force to be reckoned with on the line this season, and that is why he wins a game ball from the victory over the Rams.
