The Bears have been downright ugly on offense this season. They can’t run, they struggle in the red zone, and Devon Hester is not getting the ball enough. Now the focus may turn to offensive coordinator Ron Turner, who is clearly on the hot seat according to the Chicago Sun Times.
If the Bears fail to qualify for the postseason for the third straight season — which is looking more and more likely — changes will be made. It would take $10 million to buy out Lovie Smith’s contract. General manager Jerry Angelo is signed through 2013, which means Ron Turner’s is the head most likely to roll. ”After [six] games I didn’t expect us to be making the mistakes that we made,” he said. ”I don’t think we’ll continue to make them. We hadn’t made that many in other games. I don’t know what it was in that last game, but I looked at the film and every mental mistake we made were on base things, and they shouldn’t have happened.”
