We Haven't Played Anybody!
Does this worry anyone else?
Through 5 Weeks the Bears have not played anyone decent. The Packers are not getting it done this year and the next best team we have played is St. Louis who only won 2 games last year and is clearly in rebuilding mode. Pretty much piss-poor if you ask me. I believe we should be undefeated, if only our offense could produce. Here are some numbers from the Bears opponents through 5 weeks:
- The Bears opponents have allowed a total of 541 points while scoring only 429.
- Through 5 weeks the combined record of all Bears opponents is 10 wins 13 losses.
- 3 of the 5 teams we have played did not have 4 wins last year.
I don't want to sound like a nay-sayer but our offense has got me really worried. I know the box score from last night looks good and we put up over 500 yards in offense for the first time in a long time, but we all know that had more to do with who we were playing than how "good" our offense is.
Honest to Pete! How can you be TIED 3-3 with the JAGS at halftime?!? They can't move the ball and they can't stop ANYONE! If Armando Allen is breaking 50 yard TD runs on you then you've got some bad problems.
Of course our defense had to come in and save the day again, well really Gabbert did his best Tony Romo impression and threw it right to Tillman... I mean right to him, I could have caught that one. Wooten had a great day and L. Boogie was awesome as well. Can't wait until Urlacher gets back to form (if ever) and we have those two guys back full strength.
It absolutely boggles my mind how we could let Jacksonville make a game of it last night. You all know what I'm talking about. I think Tice did another piss-poor... I repeat PISS-POOR job game planning against what is probably the leagues worst all around team. I know no one liked Martz but that man had us putting up huge numbers on offense without anything resembling the talent we have at WR or RB this year. I mean, I love the guy and wish him the best but this WR group is too good for the likes of Johnny Knox, I'm not even sure I would want him back at this point if he were 100% (maybe replace DS as the slot guy).
I digress, I guess the point I am trying to make here is that we haven't played anyone and we need Tice to get off his fat ass and call a game for us. Im not sure if the defense or offense has scored more points this year and that is a pathetic thing to have to think about. I'm glad our D is good but lets get our O involved. This isn't like other years where we had nobody. There is no excuse this year, for Jay, Marshal, Tice, or anybody. Score points, Win games, don't leave it all to the Defense. It shouldn't take a defensive score to embarrass our offense into action.
P.S. Did anyone listen to the post game on WBBM last night? They were ripping the Jags so bad on air, hilarious!!!
