View Full Version : Bears plan to scale back playbook.

Offensive coordinator Ron Turner said he's ready to start paring back the playbook with the Bears clearly struggling seven games into the Jay Cutler era. At this point, following Sunday's 30-6 victory over the Cleveland Browns at Soldier Field, it's fair to say the Bears aren't doing much of anything very well with the possible exception of the fact that Cutler is doing a decent job of getting the ball to Devin Hester on a regular basis.

Matt Forte, who rushed for the two offensive touchdowns, showed some signs yesterday and looked good on a 28-yard reception to pick up the game's first first down. He got in some open space and took advantage of the room to run. But on the very next play Forte's assignment was to pick up blitzing linebacker Eric Barton and he completely whiffed. Barton pressured Cutler and had it not been for a replay challenge by Lovie Smith that ruled the quarterback's arm was moving forward when he lost the ball, the play would have gone for a 25-yard loss.

At the end of the day, too, Forte (and the offense as a whole) is going to be judged by 3.5 yards per carry (90 yards on 26 carries). The Browns entered allowing 171 yards per game and the Bears hit 170 with a 36-yard run by Garrett Wolfe down the sideline with 60 seconds remaining in the game.

Turner talked about players executing afterward and he's right. Surely, his call accounted for Browns linebacker Kamerion Wimbley on third-and-goal from the Cleveland three-yard line early in the second quarter. With an empty backfield after Forte motioned out wide to the left, Wimbley came free off the left side. Tight end Greg Olsen released into the flat and left tackle Orlando Pace blocked down on right end Robaire Smith. I'm not going to venture a guess as to whose responsibility Wimbley was, but when you leave him unblocked what happens is an 11-yard sack and no shot at the end zone.

The Bears, who entered the game 19th in the league in red zone efficiency (10-for-20) were 2-for-7. Now, you can wipe out the last red zone trip because that occurred after Wolfe's run in the final minute. Fine. But 2-for-6 isn't any more acceptable. Not against the worst defense in the league.
"I'll look at it, see what we need to do to give us a chance to get better, and if we're doing too much, we'll cut back,'' Turner said. ``Obviously, we are because we're making too many mistakes. Just have to figure out what we do well, and that's what we'll do.''

I have watched every bears game and have found Ron Turner to be like the other Turner, just a bad coach. Turner is horrible, the o-line is bad, the recievers are young and don't understand how to get open in zone coverage. It is not jays bad this is happening. I do think it is great that it is happening, I would imagine the chip should be completely knocked off by season's end

not jay's bad? he is just as culpable as the OC. JC is the one common denominator between the Broncos' inefficiency in the red zone LAST year and the bears' ineptness in the red zone THIS year. he got his wish - i hope he enjoys counting his $$$. he will have plenty of time in the offseason since the bears won't be in the playoffs. they are also going to send a 1st round pick to the Broncos that is HIGHER than the Broncos' OWN pick. nice - for once life is fair :~ohyah!:

Enjoying his fail and our wonderful deal is not about getting over anything.


It's about celebrating our good fortune to be rid of the loser and receiving all those picks and Orton.

But, it's fun.

If you're not having fun with it, maybe it's not other people that need to get over it?





Just throwing it out there...
