Can Martz keep this up? (let's hope so...)
Leaving two TEs in. Chipping the best pass-rusher with the RB. Leaving a FB in to block. Anything to protect the QB and give him a cleaner pocket. And you saw what happened. Cutler was calmer, focusing on the receivers. It gave the receivers time to get open. We moved the ball on the ground and through the air. All because they PROTECTED THE QB.
7-step drops were at a minimum. A great mix of run and pass. Mike Martz, this is how the BEARS can win with the personnel they have (props to Tice for benching Omayle)
Keep doing this. The defense will play up and down, but this offense can play this steadily every week when you make your highest offensive priority the PROTECTION OF JAY CUTLER.
Congrats, Mike. It seems you have seen the light.
