|Adjustments Pay Off for Bears
|LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- The way Jay Cutler was getting drilled early on, the Chicago Bears looked like they were in for a rough afternoon in Dallas last week.
Then, everything changed. The Bears made some big adjustments on offense and came away with a 27-20 win in which they turned as many heads with their execution on the sideline as they did with their performance on the field. Now, they're 2-0 heading into their Monday night game against Green Bay.
The Bears came away with the win last week in large part because of the adjustments offensive coordinator Mike Martz and line coach Mike Tice made.
Cutler says coaches like Martz along with mentors Mike Shanahan and Jeremy Bates ``find plays that are going to be successful no matter what the circumstances are.''
