After looking at the stats, which were almost even, those 3 interceptions jumppassed. I wouldn’t say they were the reason for the loss. The reason was related, however. The Bears ran 27 times for 172 yards. They passed it 36 times. So let me get this straight. You’ve got an unknown QB, facing his first NFL start. you’d think that you’d put the ball in the hands of your running backs. I guess I don’t underestand the genius behind this scheme.
Genius of a fucking idiot.
But Virginia is not going to complain.
A few things were accomplished here:
A. Caleb Hanie is not a favorite with management. He’s probably gone at the end of the season. They don’t want to pay him.
B. More throws means fewer carries for Matt Forte. He’s probably gone at the end of the season (unless Angelo franchise tags his ass in which case nobody of note will be coming to Chicago for quite sometime). They don’t want to pay him.
Martz probably just earned himself a contract extension.
