    The article raises some good questions.

    Yeah, I believe so. Just seeing the mechanic breakdown, fumbles and ints. That might be way the offense is not as explosive. Could be also to the ongoing injury from the Marshall and Jeffrey.

    Fits my thoughts on the season as well. Coaches don't go from smart to dumb overnight. There has to be reasons, such as a loss of confidence.

    Perhaps this is the beginning of an evolution into the Bears becoming a running team. It would be an acceptable way of limiting the damage.

    "...the Chicago Bears’ offense is yet to score 30 or more points in a single game, and that puts them in a woeful group with the Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Those are the five worst teams in the NFL and the Bears are right there with them offensively."


    that's laughable, anyone want to line up the Bears O talent(even the OL) against any of those sorry ass teams? And yes that is deserving of a coaching change, and a qb change; and possibly a serious shift in the OL lineup to boot, the only ones w/any kind of question marks on them.

    It will be interesting to see what they do on offense in the off season. It makes no sense spending more on offense unless it is to replace dead cap money.

    I could posit many theories but the ones I think are the most relevant are:

    -playcalling duties have changed somehow

    -Trestmans comments on not changing or having alternate gameplans

    -over compensation to limit turnovers/bad play

    The article raises the same questions we have been discussing and are at the crux of the problem.

    Poor play calling. Failure to stretch the opposing D's. Oline regressing resulting in no run game. All leading to a compressed field of play for our qb which is not what he plays well in. Toss in a shitty D and the team has lost confidence in themselves, coaches and ownership.

    Hopefully these young boys on defense can bring some energy Thursday.

    I hope so too. I'd like to see a lot of blitzing and attacking the loins O early. Play nasty and go after them.

    I always bring this up, so here we go again: This team does MUCH better on artificial turf than on grass. We play on the worst field in the league. Not that this is an overwhelming factor, necessarily, but it wouldn't surprise me to see them play well in Detroit.

    You know we keep saying how awesome this offense SHOULD be. Maybe they are what their record and stats say they are......maybe they suck.

    Nah... I'm going with underperforming and it is the coaches and Cutlers fault.

    When I see Cutler stare down a WR, or decide to throw into triple coverage, or check out of a run when it is working into yet another short pass... and I consider that he is from Vanderbilt, then I finally start to understand artificial intelligence.
