Podcast: Bears OC Luke Getsy's play calling is rightfully coming under fire


Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy has come under fire this week for his conservative approach in calling plays. And rightfully so. Just look at Chicago's inability to score touchdowns on all three red-zone opportunities in last week's loss to the Giants.

The Bears offense is among the worst in the NFL, and the only reason it's not the worst is because of their third-ranked run game. The passing game is the worst in the league, and it's not even close. So it's not really shocking that Getsy has leaned more on the run game early this season.

But let's make thing one thing clear: It's not all on Getsy. This is a group effort all around - coordinator, quarterback, offensive line, receivers, etc. But it's also fair to criticize the first-time play caller for his conservative approach, especially in the red zone.

As the Bears gear up for a Week 5 game against the Vikings, host Ryan O'Leary (@RyanO_Leary) and myself (@AlyssaBarbieri) discuss the criticism surrounding Getsy's play calling, Fields' development, and preview the matchup against Minnesota.
