Martz: Bears offense needs one day to prepare for Hall of Fame game

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

Sort of a strange story published by the Associated Press, without any quotes. Perhaps it will be updated later.

But, the AP story on ESPN.com said that Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz said his unit would only need one day to prepare for the Hall of Fame game Aug. 7 against the St. Louis Rams.

I'm not sure whether that's a reflection of how insignificant that game is or a reflection of Martz's unending glass-half full mindset.

The Bears and Rams were picked for the Hall of Fame game, which means they'll have to play five in the preseason.

The Bears are scheduled to open training camp at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Ill., at the end of next week.

"I'm not sure whether that's a reflection of how insignificant that game is or a reflection of Martz's unending glass-half full mindset."

Sean his glass is not half full, his cup runneth over. You don't need any time to play football, you can just play football. That does not mean it is good football.

He should test his theory, once football actually begins he should only use the day before every game to prepare the offense, lets see how far that gets him. Dud is meesup from the neck up.

I read a report that during the nfc title game that a timeout that Lovie Smith took the blame for was actually a timeout Martz told him to call because he saw something he didn't like.It was that play where the Bears got a first down and were driving to take the lead. But he negated the play with his timeout and then called an end around and I believe they needed to gain over 9 yards. Then of course he put Collins in because he dislikes Hanie. That's not my opinion the score reported that he hates Hanie. So he put Collins in who looked like crap all year, even against Carolina a sign he should not even be in the league.

Yes please, he needs one day to prep the offense for a game, like I need one day to prep for the Olympics.

Actually, what Martz says makes sense. The offense played all of last year and has been working out this year, so implementing a simple game plan should not be difficult. Besides, the opponent is in the same boat. The game may not be a study of precision football but should still be interesting if it is played.
