    What team has not been focused on rushing the passer against the Pack this year?

    Did the team follow up by cursing out Belichick when the film showed him asininely going for it on 4th and 2 from their own 28?

    For anyone not familiar with the Chicago media, Steve Rosenbloom is a total douchebag and I’m almost offended that he’s even being quoted on this site. He’s only purpose in life is to play the role of the guy that takes the opposing position on every single move any sports team in Chicago makes….his column is utterly worthless, much like Jay Mriotti’s (the other douchebag that was fired, thankfully) column was with the sun times…..
    Pretty sure no one cares, but I just had to get it off my chest :)

    Jay Cutler’s passer rating with the Bears: 76.0
    Cade McNown’s passer rating with the Bears: 67.7
    Jay Cutler’s TD to INT ratio with the Bears: 14 to 17
    Cade McNown’s TD to INT ratio with the Bears: 16 to 19
    They’re not that far apart.. Hahaha. Just kidding. The Bears will never have a productive QB until they (1) trash their offensive game planning and (2) upgrade their receivers. Sorry, but Devin Hester is not going to get it done. Didn’t work for Dante Hall and it won’t work for Devin Hester. Let great kick returners just be great kick returners.
