On an appearance on ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning, former St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner outlined the course of action for when his offense was under duress.
"There's a lot of different approaches," Warner said on ESPN 1000 Chicago. "In a situation like that for me, get everybody out in a route, and I'll get the ball out quick.
"Let the playmakers make plays."
Warner wasn't fleet-footed, so he thrived because of his ability to anticipate and quickly release the ball.
Last night, against the New York Giants, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was sacked an NFL record nine times in the first half. Not surprisingly, he was knocked out of the game with a concussion.
Warner said a key to the Mike Martz offense is to make quick decision.
"You can't sit back and wait for the big play," he said.
Certainly, the Bears offensive line didn't do Cutler any favors; Giant defenders were coming at him from all angles.
The Bears gained a solid five yards per run in the first half, but they only dialed up seven runs.
