Matt Forte hits out at clueless Chicago Bears coaches

Published 1 Comments

The Chicago Bears have been god awful this season and look like missing out on the NFL playoffs yet again.

Awful Performances

They have managed all this despite having one of the best offenses in the league (well on paper at least).

And one of those offensive beasts, Matt Forte, has hit out at Head Coach Marc Trestman and Offensive Co-ordinator Aaron Kramer for the way the two have been making the team play in recent times.


Forte was disgusted with the Bears gameplan against NFC North rivals the Detroit Lions, where Jay Cutler attempted an astonishing 51 passes compared to just seven running plays being called.

"You can’t just sit back there and throw 50 passes a game and expect to win”

“It’s of the utmost importance, especially if we’re playing outside, with the weather and stuff. You can’t just sit back there and throw 50 passes a game and expect to win,” Forte said, according to the Chicago Tribune.

“[The Lions’] front four were pinning their ears back. They didn’t have anything to do but pass rush. They’re not respecting the run, and then if you play fake, they’re not going take the play fake because you haven’t been running the ball. It’s a big part of the play-action game, to keep the defense off of keying on exactly what to do, whether it’s pass rush or trying to stop the run.”


The Lions are known to be excellent run defenders, but you've at least got to keep their defensive line and co-ordinators thinking about the run as a possibility.

This is especially the case when you consider the fact that they have one of the best running backs in the whole of the National Football League begging to get a chance to run it in Forte.

At the end of the day, only one thing is certain at Soldier Field right now which is that Matt Forte will be a Bear for a hell of a lot longer than Trestman or Kramer will be if this keeps up.
