This is one of those weird problems we've seen across multiple coaches/GMs.
Offenses that cannot, or will not, use simple things like slant passes.
Slants can be really fucking annoying and setup lots of other stuff as long as you prove you can execute them.
There's a reason Rodgers tends to establish the slant on our defense and hits us on the nose with it for 4-6 yards and 1st downs again and again, it is a nice reliable play that a good QB can identify and throw for easy 1st downs and TDs (sometimes).
The fact this team continually struggles to run ordinary quick slants to give the QB a reliable play/outlet when the defense is constantly pressuring with heavy blitz packages, is just kinda astounding.
It has gone on since Ron Turner and Lovie Smith and continued under ever coach/GM.
For some reason the Bears think they are above doing the simple things on offense, always need to be a "step ahead".
When's the last game you saw any of our coaches just pick one thing and beat an opponent to death with it like we see done to us quite often?
The Lions are a team we should have been able to pick on, find the weakness, punch them in the weak spot over and over, where it feels like you're cheating to win because of how well it works.
Lions were winless when they played us, but we couldn't figure out their weakness so we could rag doll them lol.
