A banged-up offensive line. A rich quarterback with one career playoff win. An elite wideout tandem. An inability to finish strong the last two weeks.
Not everything is as simple as it seems sometimes. And sometimes the reasons for a problem are so obvious as to be overlooked.
Take the Bears passing offense, for instance.
A first quarter of allowing the Green Bay Packers 30 total yards should have been a sign of good things to come.
When the Bears defense allows just 248 yards, 160 of those after an initial drive, and the Bears lose, the problem was not the defense (again).
