I was so happy when the Bears drafted Montgomery! I even have Montgomery jersey, but if the Bears don't do anything to improve there O-Line, and a better QB, he is never going to be able to show how good he can be in the NFL!Why isn't there a Bears thread? Well, I'm starting one. I mean, there is a freaking Vikings thread. The Vikings? Go Bears!!
I haven't seen many Bears games this year, but this always strikes me - this year and previous years. I was gratified to hear the announcers call this out on a 3rd and short play several games ago where instead of letting their running back do his job, they brought in a WR and gave him the ball. He proceeded to run lateral to the LOS and refused to turn it up field, instead trying to wait for a big hole for a big gain. Of course he was dropped for a loss and they punted. The comment from the commentary team was that he still runs like a WR - a RB would have turned it up into any one of those creases and gotten the yardage to move the chains.The insistence to run Patterson at important moments of the game baffles me.
