  • Gase on Thill - "last year was a hiccup"

    http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2016/0...as-hiccup.html

    What I find interesting is that Gase feels improving his protection and reducing the number of hits he is taking will be key.. Hmmmm. So he thinks a QB needs a decent oline to be successful as well. I agree 100%.

    yeah, i read that..though my analogy was more like 'throwing up in my mouth' as opposed to a hiccup, but it's nice to hear that Gase is confident that he can get RT to turn the corner...Hell, at least he's acknowledging that there was a problem and there's work to be done...

      I heard a good cure for hiccups is waterboarding. :-)

      The thing with Gase, even tho we have no idea how he'll manage as a HC, is that as a QBC and OC, he "gets it". He's been heralded as a brilliant offensive mind and unlike Joe Philbin, Gase has actually accomplished things at this level with player development, game planning and execution, tailoring his schemes to the strengths of his players, and motivating players to want to work with him - even a headcase like Cutler, who had his most efficient season ever as a pro in 2015.

      On the surface, the Bear's offense didn't look that impressive last season, but when you consider what he was working with the all the injuries they suffered, the job he did gets more impressive.

      Some of our biggest issues we've had was with passing far too many times and with poor schemes and other issues contributing to a low YPA, even though we saw YPA increase to Tannehill's best ever in 2015 with the emergence of Parker, Stills, and Landry. This despite being among the worse in the league in rushing and rush attempts. If you look at what Gase did with the Bears, he improved those things in spite of the issues his team faced.

      Bears offense: (Mostly with 2nd and 3rd string backups in CHI)
      Rushing stat:
      2014: 22.2 rushes per game, 4.1ypc, 1,441yds (27th in NFL), 17th in ToP - Miller had 13.5 attempts per game. Daniel Thomas 3.5
      2015: 29.2 rushes per game, 4.0ypc, 1,854yds (11th in NFL), 8th in ToP - Miller had 12.1 attempts per game. Ajayi 5.4

      Passing:
      2014: Cutler 6.6ypa (29th in NFL) - Tannehill was at 6.9 ypa
      2015: Cutler 7.3ypa (13thin NFL) - Tannehill was at 7.2 ypa

      These aren't just empty stats as these contribute directly to wins. Improving these numbers will translate to wins. If we increase our rush attempts and overall YPA, our offense will score more points. It starts in the trenches though.

      YMMV.

        Why fart and waste it when you can burp and taste it.
        The deeper the roots, the higher the reach.

          Wow, you mean if we improve the OL, RT will take less hits....how profound, how much of a gut feeling did that take to come up with....
