The Kid deserves better I hope he ends up in New England , Seattle or Kansas City . New England and KC's coaching system plays to a small backs SKILLS set . Can you see The Kid in the slot with Tom Brady as his quarterback .
Saabman> You are on point. When Cohen is in space he is effective as evidenced by the pitch in the red zone where he almost scored and the 24 yard punt return. The Bears clearly don't respect him or view him as a critical part of their offense as several critical series in the 4th quarter he was not even in the game. Only good thing is he has not taken a beating or been seriously injured so far in his career. I hope he does not re-sign with them as there offensive scheme, O-Line and quarterback are ineffective.

As Tarik Cohen's underwhelming season continues, the Bears are trying to figure out how to recapture his 2018 form By Cam Ellis November 04, 2019 1:00 PM
Much has been made about Tarik Cohen’s struggles this season, but wading into the Football Reference waters really hammers the point home.
Cohen was arguably the most dynamic player on last year’s offense, making the Pro Bowl by averaging over 10 yards per reception and catching a team-high 71 balls. He also put up over 4 yards per carry on the ground and was named an All-Pro punt returner.
6 months later, and Cohen’s flashiest moment of the year is still probably when he showed up to the first day of training camp in a Slingshot. His production on the field has plummeted: halfway through his third NFL season he’s averaging career-lows in Yards Per Reception (5.7), Yards Per Target (3.8), and Scrimmage Yards Per Touch (4.3).
Just to add salt to the wound, he's only gotten into the end zone once this year, after finishing last season with eight touchdowns. No one outside of Allen Robinson has played particularly well at any point in the season, but the effect that Cohen’s disappearance has on the offense isn’t hard to find on tape.
“His numbers are down and I’m aware of that,” Matt Nagy said on Monday afternoon. He’s a playmaker and we need to do a better job of getting him the ball and doing different things with him.
