Mike Martz will cost us a couple of games
Everyone wants to blast the OL and blame our favorite target J'Marcus Webb, but the truth is that NO Oline could be successful in the situation that they were put in.
When you run the ball 11 times and pass 49 times the opposing team can simply pass rush all game long and they can blitz mutliple defenders with impunity. When this happens an OL of Pro Bowlers would be in trouble.
You need to run the ball for no other reason then to allow your OLmen to come off the ball and slow down the rush.
What Martz did was get caught up in his own vanity and hang out the OL and Jay Cutler. The OL is not devoid of blame, but they had no chance of being successful in that game.
Mike Martz as a coach will cost us a couple of game every season. He cannot help himself and it happened last year when we played the NY Giants and Seattle during the regular season.
This is one of the games that Mike Martz is going to cost us this season and I would be prepared that Philadelphia will be the other game that he costs us.
