Hopefully McCarthy finally learned, that his offense is capable of running the ball on 3rd and short. That 3rd and short in the 3rd quarter where he passed the ball, then punted to Hester and then the D gives up an easy TD in 3 plays. Thought that was the game, but #12 saves McCarthy's ass once again. I just wish he would stick to his HC duties and get rid of that clip board and let the OC call the plays.

Our offensive coordinator is head coach of the Miami Dolphins. Philbin was never properly replace. But yeah, you have a really good point, no pun on those magic erasers in your avatar.

I was complaing about this too... UNTIL Mike McCarthy tried to run it up the middle and they got no where.


I don't know how but the Bears were clogging up the middle very well and the Packers were struggling to get a running game going on short yardage plays.


Bears seem to be improving, Packers need to get better line play on both sides of the ball (better Safety and TE play as well).

The real problem with the running game today was Lacy was obviously hobbled but they kept forcing him the ball while Starks was averaging like 7 or 8 yards a carry. I'm all for pounding the ball with Lacy but the guy was obviously hurting and it was hurting the team.

yeah I was wanting some more Starks today. Just about that time he would come back in a bust another long one.

I was having a fit about this. I could not understand why he didn't run the ball with James Starks against the worst run defense in football. Instead, Starks lined up as a receiver out wide. He did do a great job of running the ball on the next series. It seems that he sometimes tries to outsmart his opponent instead of just going with the most logical play.

I know on one 3rd down Mike McCarthy telegraphed what we were doing pretty easily.

When we lined up both me and a friend told each other "toss right"

And whudduh you know... The Bears stuffed it.

Just sayin'

I'm just puzzled as to why the hell we aren't handing the ball off from under center. That's what we were doing with the backup quarterbacks, and it was working. What, does Aaron just prefer to hand off from the shotgun or using tosses as our main setups for runs? Because that's gimmicky and it doesn't work.
