    Can You Say UGLY first Half/Poor Play Calling!!

    When oh when will we use our running backsto full advantage with more passes out of the backfield to Peterson and Taylor??

    This is a lousy 5-8 team folks....In spite of the TOs the offensive play calls are totally weak!!!

    Does the O-coordinator know we need to pull out all of the stops and get moving!

    We better come out in the second half with a much better offensive scheme.

    Cheers!

    I do not think it is poor playing calling. Turnovers are the reason we are losing.

    When we can't run, Jackson reverts back to the old Jackson. That pass was so stupid and ugly. This team is playing to not lose, not to win.

    I agree. Turnovers have killed us. Hold onto the ball and we are tied at worst.

    Ugly, ugly throw by Jackson on the interception just before the half.

    Let's hope AD and the offense can get untracked in the second half. Skol Vikes.

    Poor play calling?? Poor execution makes the best play calls look like shit.

    People who try to blame every loss on Chilly are ignorant.

    Correct assessment here. It's time for the O-coordinator to open up the play book and see if the Bears can keep up defensively?

    Cheers!

    Agreed. Offensive play calling has been terrible.
    Execution hasn't been good either.
    And it would appear that Tarvaris Jackson may finally lose a game for us.
    Let me ask this. The Bears are just stuffing everyone in close to defend the run; SO WHERE IS THE BOMB?
    Stretch the damn field, then run.
    And why is Wade back on punts?
    The Vikings may come back and win, but they don't look like a playoff caliber team tonight.

    calm them down in the half I say. If we can get out of the turnovers we'll get some drives going, and the Bears will help by beating themselves.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.
