In my Snap Counts, Stats and More article I wrote about the Chicago Bears finally finding, and sticking to, a workable game-plan. Football isn't as difficult as some make it out to be. Unless you have elite level talent littered throughout your lineup, you have to play complimentary football. You run the ball to set up the play action passes and bootlegs. You mix in some draws, some RB and WR screens and some quick hitting slants. You take a well calculated shot downfield every now and again, only if you get the look you want.
And you do all this on offense in order to keep your defense fresh and off the field.
Give it a listen and let me know what you think in the comment section.
In the show I also briefly touch on these related topics.
- The Jay Cutler vs Brian Hoyer debate
- The improvements of the Bears' o-line
- Bootlegs and the zone blocking scheme
- Just how good is Jordan Howard
- The Chicago secondary
As for Jordan Howard, check out this tweet from Matt Bowen demonstrating Howard's vision.
If the Bears can do what they did against the Lions, I think that make it 2 in a row.
What do you guys think?
