Clearly the yards-per-pass are a result of Martz's 7-step-drop system. I just hope he's coaching up Collins and Hanie, tho -- Cutler's gonna get killed one of these days.

Next year's draft needs to look like this:

Round 1: OL
Round 2: OL
Round 3: OL

Lather, rinse, repeat

Garsky, the Bears will probably not go O-Line in the first round next year. They will probably look to replace Tommie Harris, or maybe go Corner.

However I promis you they will go O-Line in the 7th round. Just to protect Cutler.
