Mike Martz : Is He The Answer To Bears Offensive Woes?

Patrick SchaeferCorrespondent IJanuary 30, 2010

     Mike Martz has all the credentials you would look for in an offensive coordinator, experience, has had success (a 56-36 record as a head coach) he has super bowl ring, and is innovative. Does he fit with the bears philosophy? No, the bears "get of the bus running" scheme, Martz is a pass, pass, pass, type of guy, he likes to go deep a lot, which doesn't sound bad at all. For that to happen though Jay Cutler would need protection, unless the bears can revamp their offensive line this winter, Cutler would take a beating worse than he did last year. Also, Martz hasn't used his tight-ends very much in the passing game in the past, and Olsen is one of the few bright spots that we have.

     Martz is still a viable option,some changes would have to happen for this to work though, the bears would certainly have to change their philosophy, and upgrade the offensive line and get a number one receiver. I'm sure he would find ways to work Olsen into his scheme. I think that Forte would actually flourish in this system, the way that Marshall Faulk did. Forte is huge asset in the passing game, he has very good hands, and his talents would be utilized more, and with not many other viable options left out there and the bears becoming the laughing stock, being turned down several times, I think Martz is probably the best option, that would take the job. It would definitely be interesting to watch the bears with Martz as offensive coordinator. It's not a match made in heaven, but it could work. Is there a better option out there that would take the job, with likely only a one year guarantee, given that Lovie Smith is on thin ice?
