Anyone who saw the Chicago Bears self-destruct against the Detroit Lions on Monday night probably thought Chicago’s offense was in complete disarray. Well, you thought wrong. We’ve obtained an exclusive look at Mike Martz’s playbook for Monday night’s debacle and from the looks of it, the Bears' offense executed to near perfection.
Play #1: The Make Sure Everyone Misses Their Blocking Assignment Play
Play #2: The One of Us Should False Start Play (Version 1)
Play #3: Maybe We Can Get 15 Yards With A Roughing The Passer Penalty
Play #4: The One of Us Should False Start Play (Version 2)
Play #5: Make Sure We Burn All Our Timeouts In the First Quarter Play
Play #6: The Make Sure The Receivers Don't Get Open Play

Mike Martz has a history of drawing up unique NFL offensive plays that can result in confusing defenses and putting a great deal of points on the scoreboard.
