Nice post! This offense can't get a touchdown or a small lead & then go into a shell. They have to keep attacking if we are gonna make a run the rest if the year.
Not gonna happen aslong as Smith keeps turning the ball over. They simply can't trust him to win games, and werer hiding him last night in the second half.
smith turned the ball over once last night, and the bears still didn't get much from it. cutler turns it over 4 times and they let him sling that rock all over the field. of course, he did throw a fifth pick, but he was still slinging it. ron turner, kept calling pass plays-and not because they were down by three scores or more. you have to let smith and his offensive weapons win the game-just like turner let cutler TRY and win it.
let me ask you this, if cutler was our QB and he was turning it over like he has been but throwing for 300+ yards and a couple of TD's, would you still feel the same way?
also, we ran 9 times in a 10+ play drive. i don't think that was hiding smith as much as it was just burning the clock. as mooch said, it was the 4 minute drill.
Didn't that happen with JTO last year...
LOL! JTO had a combo of INT's and fumbles. but this is kinda my point. so many people on here are judging alex without giving it time (i know i know. we aren't patient and we want to win now), but if you really really really want to know if this kid has IT, you let him play and let him try to win.
JTO had his shot, and within one season, his ass was out. now, you gave hill the same opportunity and well...we know where he is. now, give smith til the end of the season and if he continues with the bad play, you have your answer, but at least let the kid try and win some games.
if i was a bear fan, i would have seen enough of cutler to think that that trade was pure suckage.
