I realize NFL expert Dan Pompei wrote a couple weeks back that it’s unfair to criticize Ron Turner, that he’s not the problem when the Bears can’t protect, run the ball or score inside the red zone. And when a real media expert talks, we listen, right?
After Sunday’s game, when the Bears offense could only convert two touchdowns in seven trips inside the end zone, Turner mentioned that he may have to start paring down the playbook.
Seriously? Simplifying the Bears offense will help solve the problem? How about calling a single run play that isn’t straight up the middle behind a center and left guard that apparently can’t block? Especially when your 5′ 7″ running back is the one with the ball. To me, that would be a start.
Can’t wait to hear what everyone else thinks.
