On behalf of all Bears fans I would like to personally thank Mike Tice. :salute:
Though Mike has the services of a back like Onterrio Smith, he likes to limit him in carries and has him share carries and time with the other RBs in his system. This allows none of them to get into a rhythm and be very effective. Doing this to a GB team who is not that effective in stopping the run, he allows an offense run by Brett Favre to stay on the field for way to long. In the end, decisions like this, along with POOR clock management, allowed the Packers to knock the Vikings down to 5-4. As you know the Bears are 4-5 and now 1 game out of 1st in the division even with the offense as abysmal as it is.
So thanks a lot Mike! We hope you continue to run you RB by committee so we can tell what play is coming based on the ## in the backfield. Also continue to use your timeouts as early as possible so we don't have to worry about last minute drives. Continue to pray that Randy Moss comes back ASAP, as we do, so that you can keep your job because we all know that you are not too bright...
To you Viking fans, I apologize. Being a Bears fan, I know all about having an inept coaching staff that doesn't know how to use the surrounding talent.
