Mike Martz is a tough coach to play for.
He demands almost too much out of his quarterbacks and his play-calling can be very tough.
His philosophy is throw the ball as much as possible and have his wide receivers run long, complex routes to open up the defense.
It's a system that requires a great offensive line, which the Chicago Bears do not have, and a quarterback who can make quick reads and solid throws.
Caleb Hanie can't do that and is clearly not equipped to be part of the Mike Martz offense.
After losing four straight games and putting up horrendous offensive numbers, it's time to look into changing something.
If Hanie can't run a scaled-back "Martzian" offense, then scale it back further.
The coaches need to do a better job of working with Hanie and setting him up to succeed.
They need to find the few strengths in his game—his mobility and decent arm—and take advantage of them.
If Hanie and his coaches can develop a game plan he is comfortable with running, he could get some confidence back and maybe win a game.
