    So... I didn't get the chance to watch the Bears-Lions game. I had to settle for listening to it on chicagobears.com.

    I've noticed something with the Bears through the years, and I noticed it again today. Why all the runs up the middle with Forte? I'm so, so sick of hearing "Forte up the middle for one yard, which brings up 3rd and 8". I know he had a good game today, but, for the big picture, why do we keep doing the same crap in the running game over and over? Forte up the middle for no gain. Forte up the middle for one yard. Maddening.

    I thought Trestman would bring some fresh, exciting ideas to our offense.

    So... the question that I'd like your opinion on.... Is a big part of our offensive problems STILL about bad coaching / lack of imagination?

    Personally, right now, I think we would be 0-4 with Lovie. Those Cutler comebacks would not have happened under Tice.

    I have no doubt Trestman is a much superior coach than Lovie. But we dropped in D and ST. And I have not seen the creativity I expected from Trestman. MUCH, MUCH better than Tice. Worlds apart. But I have not seen any WOW! THAT BLEW MY MIND kind of stuff either. However, I temper that by understanding that the players are still trying to digest the basics of his offense and the other stuff comes later. Everyone (myself included) want to see the big guns every week. It just takes time.

    IMO, we are much better off. Right now, my opinion is that if there is any bad coaching going on right now, I'm looking at the D. I don't think ST is badly coached. We just happened to have one of the very best before. I think ST is ok. Not special (ok, pun intended), but good. Jury is out on the D. We have much more talent than is showing up on the field. To me, that is coaches.

    I agree BiH, the D wouldn't be as bad, but it'd still be a notch below what we have now b/c we'd have BU and Roach and wouldn't have got Williams and Anderson, Anderson has been the best LB on the team so far.

    The O would be terrible b/c I don't believe he would have sent Webb packing we'd still have Carimi and Webb starting on this team. No way he lets a Rookie like Mills start at tackle.

    Look at pictures of Cutler this morning has me wondering what was up with him physically. Whether it was his diabetes or loss of sleep his eyes looked sunken. Did he have any sleep the night before not making excuses just observation. I didn't see him take any hard head shoots during the game so not sure was concussed effect, I just hope it isn't related to his diabetes.

    The D line still has me more concerned.

    Tt's been said that the players always reflect the coaches persona ,, WELL THEN When are Phil & Trestman going to light a fire UNDER TUCKER's LAZY AZZ No the d didn't lose this game completely , BUT I am tired of seeing this team getting gashed for the yardage they are giving up

    The Turnovers were clearly the difference in this game

    And why are the Bears messing with Pod's punting style ,??? they shortened his alignment to the center ,..sure he may be getting the ball off quicker but with no hang time,... there is no coverage

    BearsinHOUSTON ,... No doubt there


    to the OP

    NO DOUBT there and a nail on the head,.. the end arounds and toss outs seemed to have been working.

    IMO the Bears got greedy,... and disrespectful as well of the Lion's D,... after Forte's TD dash. Then they seemed go away from with what put them on the scoreboard ,,..

    the Online did well considering
    Two of the sacks were on Cutler

    I did call a trap game here and for once,.... I'm glad they had it stuck to them.

    The Bears did not show up

    Nak, the way Forte started that game, for him to have less then 20 touches is inexcusable.

    With the way we were having success attacking the edges (Forte's TD, Jeffery's run) I wondered why Trestman was then calling so many between the tackles runs? Against a stout DL too.
