Bears' Short Yardage Woes and a Solution

The Bears have been bad in short yardage situations for years. We will see whether that trend continues this year, but having to throw to the tight end as a first option from the 1-yard line, as they did yesterday, does not indicate confidence in their ability to pound it in. (Granted, Barber was out - and he is expected to do some of that).

Here's a novel solution: Use Melton.

The guy used to play the position (he had sixteen TDs as a backup in two years at the position in college) and is showing himself to be a beast. If he can't run it in we might as well forget about trying at all. We already have one d-lineman playing fullback already (Clutts) why not another?
