Top 5 Reasons Why The Bears Will Miss the Playoffs

2. New Offense for the QB (& O-line)
The biggest question for Jay Cutler is: will he continue to force the ball when he’s hung on to the ball too long. The key issue I see with the offense is that All of the Bears receivers haven’t proven that they can get off a CB’s bump off the line. So, what happens when the pre-snap read gets blown up by a CB who sneaks in late and forechecks the receiver? Will Jay force the ball and try to make his young receivers “make a play” and risk the interception? Honestly, how does he turn off what has been his instinct and style? If the receivers falter, how does Cutler keep his team in the game by NOT turning the ball over?
