Control the clock? 'We're in the point-scoring business'

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Bears point-a-minute-and-a-half offense is going to take some getting used to. Whatever happened to keeping Aaron Rodgers on the sideline with a run-based, ball-control offense that dominates time of possession?

''We'll get the running game going. We just want to score points,'' Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice said after practice Tuesday. ''If it takes two plays or 12 or 16, we want to score points. We're not going to count the minutes of each drive and say we have to slow down the car. We're not going to play that style.''

Quarterback Jay Cutler was even more emphatic that the Bears will be more than happy to engage in a shootout with the potent Packers offense.

''We're in the point-scoring business,'' Cutler said. ''Time-of-possession, if we can grind it out we can grind it out. We've got to score points. We've got to be explosive and that takes big plays and big chunks. Time-of-possession isn't really something that's on our mind.''
