Audibles From the Long Snapper

Garza Returns to Right Guard

Brad Biggs is reporting that Roberto Garza will return to right guard position in Toronto, giving the Bears their 412th different offensive line alignment in 2010.  In replacing Edwin Williams, I think Garza-Webb gives the Bears their best chance on the right side.  (I don't think Webb should move from right tackle for the rest of the season.  I like the kid's potential.)  Lost in the stat-heavy, Sandra Bullock movie world of perimeter blocking is the fact that the Bears have been getting blown off the ball in the middle of their line.
You Mean, Like, When We Were Winning?
In separate articles, Jay Cutler welcomes the involvement of Chester Taylor and Matt Forte in the passing game and Mike Martz hints at more short passes in the game plan.  Wait a minute, what did I miss?  Wasn't this what the Bears were doing every week when they jumped out to a 3-0 start to the season?  Isn't this exactly what the game plans were?  Why did this change in the first place?  Why does this require newspaper column space?  Am I losing my mind?
A Rant About Timing

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said developing the timing with his receivers is ongoing.

"I think it's always going to be a process, not only for me, but also for the receivers," he said. "They've got to be at the right spot at the right depth at the right time against the right coverage. There's a lot of variables involved and it's a process.

We're still going through it."

The receivers and quarterback not being in rhythm with the scheme is not an excuse for the terrible decision-making which led to four game-murdering interceptions against the Redskins.  I simply don't accept this nonsense that Cutler needs to haphazardly throw the ball to a particular space because Martz' play-of-the-moment calls for it.  Throw the football away.  Throw the football to a back in the flat.  Use your legs and take off.  I understand the system is difficult to comprehend, I do.  But no more throwing the ball to a spot on the field because, hey, a guy is scheduled to be there.  If a friend of mine is scheduled to land at JFK at 1:45 pm, and I'm picking him up, I don't just show up at the terminal at 1:45 pm.  I check the flight status because I know sometimes, and often times, things change.  I just hope the Bears, at some point this season, will do the same.

  • Don't get too excited about them saying they are going to have to dedicate more plays to the run because it is the same thing they said before the Skins game and they ran the ball a whopping 4 more times in a game where we weren't behind more than 3 points, were playing amazing defense, had thrown multiple INTs, and were gashing people the times we did run it.

  • In reply to dutsami:

    They're not talking about the run.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    not in those articles maybe but on the site they are saying they need to get the ball in Taylor and Forte's hands more period, with runs and screens or short throws; either way it sounds like an echo of what they said before the skins game.

    Here's what no one seems to be talking about regarding Brett Favre's ankle: How is it No. 4 was able to do his running and jumping crazy-man celebration thing after he thought he threw that game-winning touchdown pass to Percy Harvin in the final seconds, but then he could barely walk up the tunnel moments later? Just sayin'.

    If this happens, if for even a small percentage more than it's happening now, it will open everything up. let's just hope that Forte does not have a true fumble bug attached to his spinal cord. maybe he has been fumbling because he forgets what it feels like to touch a football since there are such long periods between carries...

    Everyone on the planet knows that they aren't going to run more with Jay in there. Martz can't help himself, it's his crack and he needs to keep hitting that shit.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Cutler is doughier. Did you guys see him on the sideline at Carolina? He looked frumpy and out of shape. Can you imagine how much better he would be if he was in shape? I know he needs some extra weight to take the pounding that he does, but I think many over-estimate his mobility. He can move well for his size, but can you imagine how much better he would be if he lost 10 lbs? It's like he is so arrogant that he thinks all he needs his his rocket arm. Seems like the coaches agree with him.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Jeff George combine story:

    Many coaches were unimpressed with his Illinois career, and he was falling down the charts. In the combine, he took a snap from his own 10 yard line, rolled out and put right in his receivers hands... who caught it... in the back of far endzone. The ball travelled 90 yards in the air, and George's stock soared yet again...

  • In reply to gpldan:

    The NFL players who could make that throw can be counted on one hand. Outside of Dan Marino, I don't think many of them were good NFL QBs. Of Chicago Bears, Cutler and maybe Vince Evans could get the ball out that far.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I watched Drew Bledsoe screwing around before a game once throw a ball from the endzone through the far uprights and I thought, OMG how amazing is he. But as his career proves, you have to have more than a cannon for an arm to make it in this league.

    Was that an "avulsion fracture" or an avuncular fracture?

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    It's not like Louis or Williams were out performing Garza. He will have a positive influence on Webb. Webb needs guidance once in a while. Garza can provide that.

    I'm at a loss why Martz would keep trying to bomb away while the game is still close. There hasn't been enough success with the deep pass to give any reasonable person the incentive to keep calling them.

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    key phrase: "Reasonable person"

    About twenty of the Bears were denied entrance to a bar I frequent on Monday night, Angels & Kings. Briggs and some others are saying it could have been racially motivated. The 5 defensive line players tried to force their way in but weren't able to generate any pressure against the 2 bouncers. The offensive line players stood and watched.
    Same as it ever was.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Good thing Briggs and Lach didn't try to run a blitz to get in cause the offense guys wouldn't have been able to block the bouncers.

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    Some of the offensive skill position guys got in somehow. Knox and Hester told Cutler they had to go to the bathroom and they would be right back. Neither guy could find the pisser. Hester ended up at the coat check and Knox gave up and just went back to the bar.
    Sort of like how they run routes.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Cutler kept crapping on the floor, repeatedly missing the bowl. When he was back outside and the guys were reaming him for the skid marks on his pants, he just shrugged, "I don't need to sit on the seat, y'know, the bowl wasn't that small, y'know, I'd get the crap in next time, I could crap in that bowl."

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    As the first flushes of my love affair with Cutler are now just a memory ... and having seen him shit, puke and fart metaphorically speaking ... two more thoughts spring forth in the clear light of day :

    1. Cutler has never had a winning season and has in fact lost more games than his teams have won. Doesn't appear that a winning season will be had this year either, not when we're worrying about teams like Buffalo.

    2. Jerry Angelo is an abysmal judge of talent. So why should his all-in move for a QB have been any different? McDaniels was trying to get Matt Cassell which would logically imply he wanted rid of Cutler. Why? Now we know. When Jimmy Mac was drafted he was the smartest, biggest winner in college, for heart at least. For some reason the Colts thought Art Schlichter was a better move - anyway, suppose we had a top ten pick in the draft ....

    What say ye ?

    Draft a lineman/whatever, or draft that winning QB for the future?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I wouldn't take anything that McDaniels has done personnel-wise as a validation of anything. The guy is a shitty head coach and was happy to let your favorite WR go for a song. He is not a great judge of talent, is what I'm getting at here, Irish.
    And if we had a top 10 pick - with our current roster - you pick the nastiest most brutish DT that you can find. The pieces that we need on OL, you don't spend a first round pick on, at least if you believe the guys we have can gel into a productive unit. Which is a big if, I know. Having a franchise 4-3 DT to collapse the pocket with Big Toe would make this a Superbowl defense, not just a really good D.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    I can't stand McTard, but he saw the problem with Cutler, something it took Bears fans a lot longer to come around to, and there will always be the homers who won't see the woods for the trees.

    We're quite a few picks away from a good OL though, right? Watching the Redskins game, the need for bigger DTs was never more evident for me. "The cover 2 requires smaller, faster linemen yada yada ..." - yeah well time to rethink that chestnut because those guys looked like Knox and Hester at DT being lifted up in the air by the Skins huge linemen. I just don't see the advantage to having smaller tackles, you're throwing up the white flag of surrender in the trenches fielding smaller guys.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    We have that 3 technique tackle DT on the roster. His name is Isreal Idonije. I would move Izzy into Tommie's spot as of yesterday and continue to let Melton develop at end.

  • In reply to Crowned:

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Since we're getting no interior pressure from our defensive tackles, I would move Izzy to Tommie's 3 technique spot for the Buffulo game. Let Melton keep improving on the end. The 3 technique spot is the key to our D. I would move Tommie Harris to team parishiner. Maybe he can pump the team up through prayer.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Melton seems to be getting push at 3. He looked weak at end. He has good interior technique and hand fighting skills, which are needed more.

    Give Wooten more reps on the outside, keep Melton inside and keep Butter on the bench or backing Adams up at NT where his fall down technique works better.

  • In reply to gpldan:

  • In reply to nicholsra:

    After this year; I think they are going to be re-evaluating rules ; the process of the catch, the helmet on helmet violence; there are two additional I hope they look at:

    1.) The opposing team needs to have the ability to Decline or Accept any call, ANY CALL period. If it is a false start, delay, or a procedure penalty on the O; just treat it like an off-side; throw the flag and let the D decide if they want to accept the penalty or not after it is over; this is just common sense, committing a penalty should never help your team.

    2.) Less glaringly deficient but still common sense IMHO is the need for a different penalty option inside the 5 yard line. For a team to commit 4 consecutive false start penalties from the 2 yard line essentially does nothing negative to them and gives them 4 free do-overs. Add an option for the defense to assess a loss of down penalty inside the 5 as opposed to half the distance. Losing a down would actually be an actual penalty as opposed to moving the ball 3 inches.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Izzy proved he can play the 3 technique last year and I think he has the ability to change the dynamic on D, especially how he's been playing. Agreed on Wooten; get em more reps.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Why move Izzy.. he is doing great now at one poistion and producing.

    I liked Melton in at DT better than I do Izzy there. If anything why not Toniena and Adams. They haven't done that bad as Tommie.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Because he can also produce at the more important position of 3 technique; he did last year without Pep. Toe, Adams and Melton are all servicable players (and still learning); but not game changers. You get Izzy's 6'7 big body causing interior pressure, and QBs can't as easily step up in the pocket. Plus, with his massive paws, he's bound to block and deflect more passes.

    Real production from the 3 technique is the key to our scheme. I saw a clip of the Maury Povich show where they had this guy with no lower body. He used his hands as legs basically to get around. He somehow got this girl pregnant, which is a puzzling story for another day. But, it just reminded me of Tommie. I see Harris out there trying his hardest. Punching guys, using swim moves, clubbing dudes. But, the problem is he has no lower body strength anymore. You can club a guy with your arms all you want, but if you have no legs, you ain't going anywhere.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Izzy is far too tall to be an every down 3 tech, he was only there before in definite passing situations, any NFL guard, except maybe ours would just outleverage and run over him on run plays.

  • In reply to dutsami:

    Tell that to 6'4 Mean Joe Greene. Izzy pretty much played that 3 tech all last year, and was just as effective at stopping the run. Izzy and Pep are the only guys I've seen shed more blocks and get free as opposed to being pushed around. You can't engage and outleverage a guy that beats you with his first step.

  • In reply to Crowned:

    Izzy is 6'7"... he is way taller than Joe Greene. And yes he played the run effectively onr 3rd and long, when he was in there... so you give up 6 yards on a run on 3rd and 11, they still punt but if you give that up on first and second down, they never have to have a 3rd down play. Izzy is fine right where he is at, he is the first guy on our team to step up and take advantage of Peppers disruption, why would we "fix" one of the only parts of our team that isn't broken?

  • In reply to dutsami:

    Because the D-line unit isn't getting it done collectively. Izzy can make more of an impact collapsing the middle. Two or three inches isn't way taller. So, your happy with 2 young guys learning at our most important defensive position. Izzy did a comendable job there last year and of course he get's moved out in hopes the "old" Tommie comes back to life. That's not gonna happen. Toe is good, but he can't be dominant at the 3 tech spot.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Mike Martz is.... Captain Hindsight: http://www.southparkstudios.com/clips/360430/captain-hindsight

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Even if they know that though at least it keeps Cutler off his back and maybe it opens up some other passing opportunities with the Bills thinking run for more plays. As it is right now, all the teams know don't worry about the run, just cover the pass. so i don't think it's all bad.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I'm 6'3" and 230lbs. I wish to go on record as griping about 6'4" - 218lbs being considered "doughy". Cutler and I, well - ok - maybe a little.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Correction - MB30 referred to you and JCut as "doughier". 218 got a "doughy".

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    btw, after reading the whole piece and thinking about it for a bit... it's fucking scary, not funny. I don't know boys, it's getting hairy.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Yes sir, yes it is. You can smell how this plays out in the long run and it's way nasty.

    Garza Returns to Right Guard:

    So this is the 7th lineup right? They're talking about giving the line time to gel ... and they trot out the 7th lineup in as many weeks. Almost unbelievable until you realise it's the guys int he clown car we're talking about.

    "I don't think Webb should move from right tackle for the rest of the season. I like the kid's potential."

    Stunning my man, truly stunning. What are the rest of us missing? He's certainly got the size to maybe be a good road-blocker one day, but he's our worst pass-blocker by some way. Too big and slow, gets beat like a drum every time. Everybody who ever walked the earth has potential. He's a seventh round tackle who plays like it and is only starting because our roster is that bad.

    A Rant About Timing:

    " But no more throwing the ball to a spot on the field because, hey, a guy is scheduled to be there."

    That's what a timing offense is. So I guess you mean fire Martz

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    Jeff! This was the most awesome post ever! It put to words exactly what I have felt about this situation throughout this season. Especially the whole part at the end with Cutler. Why oh why can't they get the simplicity of this situation about how we could easily be 7-0 or 6-1 if not for this kind of crap we have seen and heard. why can't these guys that should have honorary masters degrees or doctorates in pro football coaching, schematics etc... get it in their heads, from coaches that don't play to their players strengths and weaknesses to players (specifically Cutler) too arrogant to make slight adjustments in their game. Like the "taking off" statement, or throwing the ball away or doing like jim Miller talked about a couple weeks ago to make changes on his own at times if he doesnt want to be pancaked by his own left guard, DE, DT, safety, linebacker or cornerback repetitiously. Jim mcMahon use to ignore play calls on occasion himself to Ditga's disdain, that is leadership. There are times to take matters into your own hands without giving the ball to D. Hall 4 times in a game and allowing him to match the TD's of your own receivers in that game.

    Anyways, i got carried away there and forgot the point I was going to make, everytime I start talking about it I think it through and my mind starts rushing with it all over again.

    So i was reading on the blog, the same article that Cutler is quoted about and i got this excerpt:

    Expectations were high when veteran coordinator Mike Martz was hired on Feb. 1. But after seven games, the Bears offense ranks last in the NFL in third-down efficiency, sacks allowed and interceptions; 31st in red-zone percentage; and 30th in total yards.

    I posted that because it still amazes me that we could easily be 7-0 or 6-1 if any of the stuff in that paragraph were even just a hair different than what it is. One less turnover (throw the ball away), one less sack (throw the ball away, dump pass, quick pass, run the ball), one more 3rd down conversion (Chester Taylor, hello?!?), one coach that manages the clock and challenge flags if only slightly better...

    any of those conditions and we are not suddenly standing here with our backs against the walls thinking about the possibility that oour team could potentially now only win 1 or 2 games for the remainder of the season.

    Thank you for that post, it's been long since time for JA and the Bears owners to be reading this blog daily and holding this staff accountable to the simplistic.

    I'm such a dumbass sometimes!

  • In reply to RogerMinton:

    the first step is admitting you have a problem lol

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    It came from the gene pool! You didn't really think I'd admit I have a problem do ya? It's bad enough I believe the Bears just may pull this season out in spite of the last 2 horseshit outings!

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    So, we're going to have veteran Garza in a 3-point stance with his head turned to look at Webb, shouting at Webb what his blocking assignment should be. This is so Kreutz can concentrate on yelling at Williams, what HIS blocking assignment should be. Omlette will be assumed to know what he's doing out there.

    Could we just suit Tice up as fullback? Then he could line up behind the line and just scream the assignments at them that way.

    haha, thats would probaly be the best idea that will come from this team this year. lol good one GP

  • In reply to gpldan:

    1. We need a big WR, cause those small ones just are getting over powered. Wait till we play the jets.
    2. FULLBACK ANYONE?
    3.Martz playcalling is horrible. He is planning his gameplan around three three guys only, Cutler,Knox,and Hester. Did he forget that our best WR was and is Greg Olsen, and did he forget we have good RB who can run and catch. I call better plays on Madden than this fuckin guy.
    4. This year is really testing my fuckin patience.
    5. I cant believe the mess of bullshit we got goin on in our management.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    So according to that analysis, Farve is 3 times worse than Jay Cutler, who is second to last out of the 39 other QB's.
