CCS Film Room: Impressive Rookies

Welcome to the first edition of the 2013 CCS Film Room! This article will focus on the play of the rookie Offensive Lineman of the Bears, both Kyle Long and Jordan Mills. Having a rookie right side of an offensive line is typically a nightmare scenario for NFL teams, but given the Bears recent lack of success at, well, everything involving the OL from the last few years, it's plausible to consider the rooki ...

CCS Film Room: Cutler’s TD Pass to Spaeth

Chicago got a much needed win vs. division opponent Minnesota in Week 12, and oh, what a difference #6 makes when he's on the field. Late in the 2nd quarter of the Bears victory, QB Jay Cutler found TE Matt Spaeth on the side of the endzone for 25-3 lead. Spaeth appeared to be the 3rd read for Cutler, who completed a pass very few QBs would even attempt. On to the stills! In this first shot, you see the Bea ...

CCS Film Room: Marshall’s Three Touchdowns

There was a lot to be excited about in Chicago's 51-20 beat down of Tennessee last Sunday, but perhaps the most impressive stat was Brandon Marshall's three touchdowns. Marshall is 7 touchdowns on the season now, one behind leaders AJ Green and James Jones. He is also 4th in receptions and 2nd in yards. Let's take a look at the way these plays broke down. On to the stills! On Marshall's first touchdown, the ...

CCS Film Room: Bears Three Red Zone Passes

Early in the 3rd Quarter of the Bears victory over the Lions, they found themselves down inside the five yard line. However, to the dismay of many, they elected to not run the ball with RB Michael Bush or RB Matt Forte, and instead attempt three straight passing plays (all were incomplete). There has been some discussion over whether or not these passes were all called by Tice, or whether or not QB Jay Cutl ...

CCS Film Room: Armando Allen’s TD Vs. Jaguars

Late in last Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, 2nd-year RB Armando Allen registered his first career rushing touchdown to the delight of Chicago fans (and Notre Dame fans) everywhere. Even though the play happened in garbage time with the Bears already carrying a 34-3 lead, a lot of "good" happened on this play that was by-and-large overlooked. The Jaguars defense was masterfully blocked by th ...

CCS Film Room: Bears WRs Utilizing The Stutter Step

After a disappointing first half against the Jaguars, the Bears really got into the swing of things in the 3rd and 4th quarters. In the 4th quarter alone, they scored FOUR touchdowns (3 offensive, 1 defensive). Let's take a look at how they scored their 2nd TD of the 4th quarter, putting them up 24 points and effectively putting the game on ice. On the Bears 2nd play of their 2nd drive, QB Jay Cutler hit WR ...

CCS Film Room: Wootton’s Sacks Vs. Jaguars

Corey Wootton is known for one thing and one thing only. He is the defensive player responsible for effectively ending Brett Favre's career on December 20, 2010. That was Wootton's rookie season, and the 4th round draft pick has done little prior to this year to convince the Bears to offer him an extension. However, the defensive end is enjoying a very impressive first five games to the 2012 campaign, recor ...

CCS Film Room: Cutler’s 1st Quarter INT Vs. Jaguars

In the first quarter of the Bears most recent game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Jay Cutler threw an interception on a play that looked ugly from the get-go. However, as always, there's more than what meets the eye on this play. The point of this article is not to assign blame to Cutler or Marshall or anyone else, but rather to explain what each player may have been thinking during the play. Let's get t ...

CCS Film Room: Marshall’s 4th Quarter Touchdown against Dallas

Since the game two debacle in Wisconsin, Mike Tice has gotten plenty of heat from Bears fans for his lack of play-calling knowledge. While I, too, questioned his ability to call an offensive game from start to finish, I was also quick to point out that it takes several weeks for an offense with so many new toys to gel. One of those new toys is Brandon Marshall, and on his 4th quarter TD against Dallas, Tice ...

CCS Film Room: Tillman’s INT of Romo

The Bears have shown glimpses of a "Mug Front" this season, and did so often against the Cowboys in Monday night's win. Let's take a look at some still-images as to why the Mug Front is effective, especially when we send more than the front four.   When the Cowboys break the huddle, the Bears have four linemen and both linebackers showing blitz. Urlacher is up on the line with the Defensive Line, Brigg ...
