Overkill: Munnerlyn Calls Out Coaching on Bears' Final Drive

Ballsy move coming from a guy who can't count to 11 or 12. Anyone could see what they were doing. Its a tough loss to one of the best teams record wise in the NFC, with a really good defense. If we score Touchdowns it does not matter, the game is out of reach for them. If we sustain a drive longer than 3 and out and a 6 yard punt, we're talking about a different game. There are tons of reasons we are 1-6. We are what we are, and its painful to watch, because the team is trying so hard to win. I have mad respect for Greg Hardy, with that interview he did after the game. Brutal.

Proud of Munny, but he shouldn't have backed off at the end with the "we still have to execute." You're not going to execute anything playing quarters against slants. I wish they would have completely rebelled and called their own play in the huddle.

And for JR, I have no idea how even with the most level-headed approach, that you let Rivera make it through the season.

Gamble has the rep to say something like this, but had they called cover 2 and get a, likely, 30 yarder on a double move on Cap the coach would have been called out as an idiot for that instead.

The main problem is that Cap can´t cover a double move to save his life.

Still doesn't change the fact that Cap is right.

If you send your buddy with $5 to buy the beer for a game you have no buissness yelling at him when it runs out during a pregame show.

Same with Cap. If a call is made partly because you are not good enough to be trusted on other calls. It is totally off the point that it turned out to be the wrong call. You shut up.

Its still the coaches fault because they didn't go after anyone in offseason to fill the lack of talent we have in the CB position. Also just because Cap may not be as good as Gamble doesn't mean his voice is any less important than his. Heck Cap's might be more important right now because he's actually out on the field contributing to the team.

HUH? Our DBs had completely shut down their passing game using press coverage. So what do the coaches do!? Go to a soft zone cover 4. Why abandon what had been working? The coaches put their player in a position to fail by not playing to their strenghts. Cap has every right to call them out. He played his ass off the entire game only to have the play calls kill the defensive momentum. Think before you type nonsense.

Ultimately everything falls on the HeadCoach. Just my .02 though.

Let think and get the facts:

1. NFL coordinators from pretty much every team uses the soft defense at the end of games.

2. Fans always yells that it is stupid.

So either fans knows more about the game or people that has manage to fight to a postion 1000s others also fights for by thier knowlodge of the game knows more about the game.

I am going to have to go with that coaches knows more on that one.

That press coverage works in game situations there the other team is trying to limit the risk of an intercepts or 3 and outs by not going deep does not mean that press coverage works best when that other team have to take the risk to win the game by going deep.

I hate to watch the soft D too. I hate how it looks like late half/game points are just handed on a silver plate. I hate to watch us lose.

But nothing changes the fact the you do not call out someone that partly made the mistake because you put them in a bad spot (with the inability to cover a deep double move good enough).
