What the hell is your problem. Read. The post name for number 10 was incorrect, so post 11 changed it. It shouldn't be a problem for you.

Why is Benson still carrying the ball that much? After the 1st quarter, they should realize he would not get more than 3 yards per carry against this defense (or most NFL defenses). He should only be in there for the short yardage plays and in the 4th quarter to secure a win (pounding the ball). We need more speed from the backs for more breakaway runs. The offensive line is creating some holes, but Benson can't cut and breakaway. He just runs straight into whoever waits for him. It's ugly watching our running game!! We need free agency for our future backs and QB's!! It's proven we can't coach draft picks here for QB or RB.
Also, why was the defense watching more instead of being in the plays? There were many occasions where one player would stand someone up and the other D players were right there watching him make a tackle. There should be bodies flying at any player with the ball! There should be a swarm of Bears jerseys in every tackle. Instead, players would get stood up and an opportunity existed for a big hit, but the other D players stood and watched their teammate make a tackle. Where's the intensity? It was an ugly game on defense and from our running attack. It looked more like a Miami game this year. Are the D players afraid to hit hard for fear of getting injured? What is wrong on that side of the ball? With Griese hitting many different receivers, we have an opportunity to be something. The season will be nothing if the D stands around watching each other.

What a terrible shame to see all those nice, sportsmanlike fans in Philly with their *icks in their hands, and tears in their eyes...
