“In this offense if you run a slant and a defender is coming down on you then you have to cross his face,” he said Tuesday on “Chicago Tribune Live.”“But every time I see Johnny Knox run a slant he goes behind the defender and you see an interception go the other way and everyone looks at Jay Cutler and says, ‘How did he throw that pass?’ That is going to be a mistake no matter who the quarterback is.”On the quality of the Bears wide receivers: “I see no pure wideout. When we ran Martz’ offense in St. Louis we had three or four pure wideouts. … If you are still teaching that stuff to your wide receivers then in this offense you can’t blame the QB.”
If the Bears are going to successfully run the Mad Mike offense, they must add a big target wide receiver in the mold of Torry Holt or Isaac Bruce. They must add an experience route runner. And they must do so before the summer.
