Bears Should Act Like a Bunch of Jags
BEARS SHOULD ACT LIKE A BUNCH OF JAGS
by The One-Man Swarm
I don't know what the Bears' itinerary looked like yesterday, but I sure as sh*t hope it included this line item:
12-3 p.m.: Watch Indianapolis Colts v. Jacksonville Jaguars
If the Bears did take time out to witness the 44-17 emasculation, they have no excuse not to ravage the Rams with a proportional lack of mercy. In fact, it shouldn't even be all that hard. What could be more simple than following a basic recipe?
Recipe: Annihilation of a Horrible Run Defense
From the Kitchen of: Jacksonville O.C. Mike Smith
- Combine 3 parts run and 1 part pass.
- Smash mouths.
At a time when all of the talk in Chicago centers around the quarterback position, the Bears would be wise to focus on their run game with the attention span of an 86-year-old man watching MacGyver reruns. If you've never seen this, you've gotta take my word for it. Old men are to Macgyver as zombies are to brains. To paraphrase Vincent Ludwig, they are single-minded of purpose and deadly when they find what they want. If you have an elderly father or grandfather, consider buying him Season One on DVD. This has been another holiday shopping tip from The One-Man Swarm.
Sunday, facing the Colts' absolute sieve of a run defense, Jacksonville carried the ball 42 times for 375 yards, for an average of 8.9 yards per carry. They repeatedly sent the message that they were the undisputed owners of the line of scrimmage. They kept a dangerous quarterback off the field. They limited the involvement of their own quarterback to 14 passes. And they won another piece of the game each and every time they snapped the ball.
The Bears' running game has started to peak at just the right time. Two weeks ago, they ran for an impressive 153 yards against New England's stingy run D. Last week, they pounded Minnesota (the league's top run defense) for 92 yards, which is fairly impressive considering how few plays the Bears managed to run. Even more impressive was the 6.67 ypc average posted by Cedric Benson, who has been running people over like Rip Torn in the midst of a brandy bender.
Tonight, the Bears face the St. Louis Rams and a defense that has been gashed by more runs than a stripper's stockings. They would be wise to pull a Coach Red Beaulieu and straight-up steal the Jacksonville Jaguars' playbook.
