Moore wants the Chicago Bears to take more deep shots
Per a video posted by Marquee Bears, Moore said he felt the Bears could have dialed up more deep passes against the Browns’ defense.
“I feel like we could’ve took more shots,” Moore said.
Moore said he felt taking more deep passes could have forced the Browns not to bring as much pressure.

Moore may have a point about deep passes. I mean, it wasn’t like the Bears didn’t attempt deep passes. Robert Tonyan dropped a wide-open shot early in the game. Mooney had his drop on the hail mary to end the game.
But deep passes aren’t going to fix the offense. This offense needs to be rebuilt. Offensive coordinator Luke Getsy isn’t coming up with good game plans.
The offensive line cannot block long enough to give Fields time to throw a deep pass. The running game isn’t effective enough for the defense to focus on containing the rush. The wide receivers (outside of Moore) and tight ends aren’t consistent enough in their route running or catching abilities.
The final issue is Fields. He’s not passing the ball routinely the way the Bears need him to.
Fields should have had more positive stats if his wide receivers had made catches NFL players typically do. But Fields also should have had twice the interceptions (to pair with his two Bears-recovered fumbles) if the Browns’ defense had made plays NFL players usually do.
