Every day in the month of June we’ll ask a different Chicago Bears-related question make sure you participate the entire month so we can all get to know WCG Community a little better. Today we’re talking least favorite play

We’re really getting into the 30-Day Challenge now with this being day five so I think everyone is up to speed on what’s going down.

We’ve touched on a lot of favorites so far: favorite WR, favorite memory, favorite place to watch games. But this month isn’t all sunshine, rainbows and favorites. We also have to go down the path of misery and suffering. Just like our favorite team the last few years...

So we’re looking for your least favorite Bears play. Not a specific play in a game though, no rather play called by the team. Over and over. Often without success.

Did you hate John Schoop’s screen passes? Or Mike Martz’s Earl Bennett endaround? Does the Ron Turner fullback dive still eat away at you? Or is there another one that sticks out?

For me, it has to be the old Marc Trestman endaround to Alshon Jeffery. It seemed like he would use it two or three times a game sometimes and when it worked, fine, it usually was to try and set up some play action play later in the game, but it seemed like its success was short-lived and most of the time it was a no gain or a loss of yards. When he used it on second down, that would drive insane because most of the time it seemed like it was a lost down and would bring on third and long every time.

The Bears have had a lot of offensive coordinators, is there one play they called that drove you nuts?
