I wasn’t in the Chicago area anymore by that time. Maybe it wasn’t big news nationally.

It is with great sadness the Chicago Bears and the McCaskey family mourn the loss of Michael B. McCaskey, 76, after his lengthy battle with cancer.

ESPN highlighted the Bears' long struggle with running the ball up the middle. They havent ranked higher than 22nd in this millennium. That is embarrassing, especially for a team with such a rich history of doing just that.

And they have used several top 100 picks on interior OL (Long, Daniels, Whitehair, Grasu) while drafting 0 tackles in the top 100.

Both Angelo and Pace have largely ignored the line in the meat of the draft for multiple years in a row. When they’ve had decent lines they’ve been built through free agent pass protectors. They also haven’t had a between the tackle type system or running back for much of the past two decades. When they were a good team they did it on the back of a strong defense that required a lot of draft capital being used on that side of the ball.

I had to look up the name but Columbo was the guy I always used to think of as the “well that didn’t work so let’s never draft a lineman again” pick.

When they drafted him, I exclaimed “WHO THE horsefeathers IS MARC COLUMBO”. My girlfriend at the time thought it was hilarious and wrote that quote out on a piece of tracing paper and slipped it into the cover of my Modest Mouse Building Nothing out of Something CD jacket.

I still have that note

I'm watching the Bears/Titans game from 2012 (10-6 season missed playoffs in Lovie's last year). And my God did was this organization flat out negligent to Jay Cutler. I mean, this is the year they got Brandon Marshall and they had Forte, but the rest of the offense is putrid. Hester the #2 WR. Kellen Davis is the TE since they previously traded potential future Hall of Famer, Greg Olsen. The OL consists of J'Marcus Webb, Chilo Rachal, Lance Louis and Gabe Carimi with Roberto Garza being the only respectable player at center, and he's 33 years old at this point. Mike effing Tice is the offensive coordinator. I guess rookie Alshon Jeffery is on this team, but I haven't seen him on the field.

Granted the Bears put up 51 points in this game, but right now it's 31-2 and they have about 60 yards of total offense. Blocked punt for TD, Urlacher pick 6, Hester return inside the 10, Peanut punch recovery inside the 20.

The 2012 Bears had 3 games under 190 total yards of offense. They had 2 more games under 250 total yards and 4 additional under 300 yards. This was the infamous season where 11 QBs threw for over 4000 yards (14 over 3,800) and Cutler threw for just 3,033 in 15 games. Only Christian Ponder and Mark Sanchez threw for less with at least 13 starts. Almost HALF of the passing yards went to Marshall.

The Bears invested a ton in Cutler in terms of picks and eventually money, but never actually invested in the OL. Invested in WR finally with Marshall and Jeffery, but Marshall was a known headcase and then they gave him offensive coordinators/a head coach that weren't fit for an NFL job. This franchise seriously could have won multiple rings under Lovie had they ever even had 2 of competent offensive weapons, OL investment, a legit NFL OC.

I was at that game. Lots of fun, and Chicago drank Nashville dry. Too bad this is the year the Bears return to Nashville. Very fun town, and I hate country music

Well, at least they’ve learned their lesson and totally aren’t blowing another window on overinvesting in defense and underinvesting in the core of the offense

EHH...they've invested heavily in offense, spending a top 5 pick on a QB is a big deal. They just flat out missed
