In any profession, when the workers consistently don't get the job done, the person in charge takes the fall.
For whatever reason, the Bears offense has not gotten the job done this season, and Mike Tice deserves a large portion of the blame.
Is he the one who misses a blocking assignment, drops a pass or throws an interception? No, but his job is to piece together an adequate offense, and so far he has not done that.
The Bears offense currently ranks 28th in the league in total yards, and 31st in passing yards. Tice, who was supposed to be an offensive line guru, has seen his unit commit the second most false starts in the NFL (18), while giving up the second most sacks (28).
The Bears average more than 26 points per game, but it would be naive to forget that the defense has scored seven touchdowns and spoon-fed the offense several others.
The defense has carried this team all season long, and the Texans game was no different. The offense had eight of its 13 possessions start beyond its own 35-yard line, but could only amount to six points.
The last thing this team wants is another offensive coordinator, but it doesn't need a dysfunctional offense either. And unless something changes, that is exactly what they have.
