Nah, seriously though. If we had guys that knew how to become hot reads when the QB is in trouble it would be easy to pick one. Right now that more than anything needs to be practiced and learned by our players. I hate seeing open spots on the field when the D blitzes and our guys are still running downfield continuing their routes with their backs turned and when they turn around our QB is on the ground. So whoever decides that they have the ability to this tonight will be the security blanket.
Keys - Gore breaking Tackles since there is going to be 8 in the box
Pass protection - against the blitz
There was an analyst last week (sorry I can't remember who it was) on the radio sayitng that teams doesn't not like blitzing Smith since he can read them so well.
If CK plays he said that the Bears will Blitz early and often.
