It was only 36 hours ago that Florio warned PFT Planet not to count out the Hall of Fame game just yet. Some comments from offensive coordinator Mike Martz certainly support his case.
Martz told the Associated Press on Wednesday that the Bears would only need one day to get ready for the game if necessary. He said that wouldn’t be ideal of course, but they could get it done.
This flies in the face of the growing concern from Bears and Rams staffers that told Yahoo! Sports they doubted they could get ready for the game quickly. Ultimately, it won’t be up to Martz or any coaches. It will be up to the NFL.
One day is an extreme example, but Martz’s words are a reminder that the Bears and Rams could probably figure out how to play if they are told to so.
