Cutler says Bears offense still has work to do
“We know Michael can run it between the tackles, but I think it was good for him to show everyone that he can make you miss also,” coach Lovie Smith said. “I think his second touchdown run, the guy was one-on-one in the hole, it was a great cut by him to make a guy miss. He is a big back and can do a lot of good things.”
The Bears believe their offense can do a lot of good things, too. But there are some concerns on the left side of the line, particularly at the tackle spot.
J’Marcus Webb started and wound up rotating with Chris Williams until late in the game, and although there weren’t any major missteps, there didn’t seem to be any real answers, either. Webb seemed to hold up against Washington’s Brian Orakpo until the Pro Bowl linebacker left with a shoulder injury late in the first quarter.
Another test looms Friday.
The Bears visit the New York Giants, and if they want to push Webb and Williams, that will be a good opportunity. Not only do the Giants boast one of the best defensive lines, it’ll be the third preseason game. That means there will be some game-planning.
As for Saturday, Smith liked what he saw overall from the line.
“You have to, of course, go back and watch the video, things are normally not as good as you think when you have some success and things are not quite as bad too, but I think for the most part, from what I was able to see, we did a decent job,” he said.
