Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz was almost literally run out of the last three cities he coached in. Sometimes it takes seeing it in your own back yard to understand–there seems to always be the feeling that “sure, it happened there but it won’t happen here.” Just like I’m beginning to see for myself some of the things Bronco fans didn’t like about Jay Cutler. More on that later.
Today, Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun-Times calls Martz’ offense “bumbling.” For a guy sometimes hailed as a genius, heck, hailed as a genius in my mind as recently as the Dallas game, that seems harsh. But unfortunately I can’t argue with it. The season is on the line this week, as it will be every week the rest of the season.
