Post Rapid reaction of Bears 16-0 wipeout of Miami
Quote:
The vital stat of the night during this 16-0 whitewashing of the Dolphins?

Third down conversion, of course.

The Chicago Bears converted 10 of 18 third down plays. The Dolphins converted one of 11 third down plays.

"On offense, we couldn't get out of our way," coach Tony Sparano said. "On defense, we couldn't get off the field."

No lie.

This shutout was the first at home for Miami in nine years. The Bears gained only 268 yards and churned only 19 first downs.

"It's a team game. Defense could have won the game. We lost as a team," cornerback Vontae Davis said. "You gotta keep working, man. In this league, anything can happen. We've got to keep working, keep fighting and come together as a team."

...

The offensive line was a turnstile to the QB for Chicago. The Bears had six sacks. Julius Peppers had three sacks.

ArmandoSalguero Julius Peppers was credited 3 sacks vs. the Dolphins. He had two sacks in nine previous games. OL was a turnstile tonight.

more important to note is that the Fins were facing 3rd and long for most of the night, thanks to quite a few negative plays on 1st and 2nd down, which were due to predictable (poor) play calling and also penalties (in the 1st half) ... asking a lot of Tyler to convert so many 3rd and longs, when they just managed 1st and 2nd downs so poorly !

Do you expect that our 3rd string QB is capable of going and and executing more than a predictable section of our playbook. This guy gets NO offensive snaps in practice, and you expect to go in as if he has a full grasp of anything beyonda small subset of the playbook. Right now we're playing with the playbook (and in some cases the personnel) of the 3rd string offense back in August.

Get real with those expectations.

they're not expectations ... just observations of why our 3rd down conversions were non-existent
