Chicago Bears midfielder Robert Quinn was named NFC’s best defender: “His engine spins to 1,000 mph in every game.”

Continuing his impressive comeback season, Chicago Bears midfielder Robert Quinn has been named NFC Defender of the Month for November.

In three November games, Quinn had 5 ½ sacks for minus 33 yards, 14 tackles, five losing tackles, six quarterback shots, and a forced fumble. This included speaking out against the Baltimore Ravens in week 11.

Quinn, 31, leads the Bears with 11 sacks and also has 36 tackles, 11 losing tackles, 13 quarterback hits and two forced fumbles in his 11th season in the NFL. His performance was important as outside midfielder Khalil Mak struggled with a leg injury that ended his season.

Quinn’s performance came a season after he recorded two sacks in his first year with the Bears. He believes that good mental space is part of what allowed him to bounce back.

“The past year has been a bit unlucky for everyone, a bit tricky with COVID coverage,” said Bears Coach Matt Nagy. “I think that everyone had their own problems that we all went through. As for Robert, as we get closer to where we are this year right now to see him bounce back and become who he is, now in the top five in sacks, I immediately said that this guy in the offseason, he cared immensely about wanting to be better and how we can do it, about making a plan for the offseason and then following it.

“From the very first day he came here in the offseason, training camp, and preseason and regular season, his engine has been hitting 1,000mph in every game.”

Quinn’s best season came in 2013 with the St. Louis Rams, with 19 sacks, 34 quarterback hits and 23 tackles. His 11 sacks this season ranked him third after that year and 11 and a half in the 2019 season with the Dallas Cowboys.

He became the first Bears player to be named Defender of the Month since Eddie Jackson in November 2018.
