Mike Tice, new OC for the Bears, is having a few sleepless nights over his O-line.
What I can’t figure out is why. I mean, he had to have seen them play last year, right? Does he not know how to do the math? Cutler was sacked over FIFTY TIMES! and only 1/3 of those sacks came on a 7 step drop. Cutler was sacked over TWENTY SEVEN TIMES on 3 and 5 step drops.
And yet, the Bears chose to stand pat at the O-line position, not bringing in any big names, nor drafting for need.
Now they expect to contend in the NFC North? Against the Vikes and Jared Allen? The Lions and their top 5 D-line? Even the Pack, who have no defense beat the Bears twice last year, and I don’t see that ending anytime soon.
