NFL Gambling Notes: Bears do everything they can to avoid running the football

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Green Bay -3.5 at Chicago O/U 45.5

Yes, they were technically trailing for much of the game but Chicago's reliance on the pass – especially with how bad the offensive line has been – bordered on insanity against the Saints last Sunday. And it wasn't like the Bears were coming from way off the pace. The Saints were up 16-13 until halfway through the third quarter. All told, the Bears called 11 running plays vs. 52 pass plays (we see you Mike Martz!). In the second half, the ratio was even worse at 2-to-29. Of course Jay Cutler was sacked six times. Running back Matt Forte gashed the Saints for a 42-yard run early in the game but carried it just eight more times. It certainly won't help their cause that two offensive line starters may be out for Sunday's matchup against Green Bay.


“When the offense is more balanced, (the defense) just can’t harp on one thing,” Forte said. “If they know we’re passing the ball, just like (Sunday), they’ll pin their ears back and bring everybody. It’s hard to pick up everybody when they’re blitzing like that. You’ve got to hurt them in the passing game when they were blitzing so many people. We didn’t get the ball off or, when we threw it, it wasn’t completed.”

“I know the balance as far as run/pass wasn’t there,” Smith said, a day after the 30-13 loss to the Saints in New Orleans. “All I can say is: ‘We’ll get it better.’ We can’t win football games with that kind of balance.”
