Because his offensive philosophy is outdated, not to mention the propensity for a outrageous number of sacks and turnovers.
That's ridiculous. He was ahead of his time and the league is just now catching up. He was knocked for throwing 30-40 times a game, that's the standard now. The problem is his offense is built to play indoors. It worked great in Detroit, not so much here and Chicago outdoors and with teams constructed to run the ball.
There is a lot more wrong with his offensive philosophy than just throwing 30-40 times a game. Defenses figured him out years ago. He needs the perfect combination of skill players to make his offense work.
He was innovative, I'll give him that. But his run was short lived. No way he will ever have the success he had in St. Louis.
