    John Harbaugh was never a coordinator and was DB coach and STs coach. One of the best HCs in the league.

    I just found the statement funny. 2+ years in and our Hall of Fame OL head coach is saying he's "been meaning" to be more involved in the OL. And I'd say he didn't handle his "first priorities" very well anyway.

    It's no secret I've been firmly in the "Munch is in over his head" camp. That said, he does have some legitimate excuses for his team's poor performance. That ends this year. Like Locker, it's put up or shut up time. I know some people think I'm a "Munch hater" but I'm actually rooting for him to do well. He's a likable guy and obviously I want the team to succeed. And I really don't want to have to start all over with a new head coach, QB, etc. We've suffered enough. I'm ready to win.

    Agreed. There are no excuses all around for this entire team this year.

    That would explain 2011, he seemed to be tending to more priorities in 2012. There really wasn't much time at all for coaching in 2012.

    In year 1 Munch had a winning season (against a terribly weak schedule, but still).
    In year 2 Munch had a QB who was injured in week 1 and an OL that couldn't stop a sneeze. A lot of you trash talk the D but what the **** do you expect when the O is constantly getting three-and-outed and turning over the ball? I mean, if you actually watched the Chicago game, our D didn't do bad, the Bears were scoring from turnovers.

    And who's responsible for that? The Hall of Fame offensive lineman, former offensive line coach and now head coach shouldn't have thought bringing in a 34 year old Steve Hutchinson, who had finished the last two seasons on IR, and flipping Leroy Harris from left guard to right guard would assuage the offensive line problems, but he did.

    Munch gets a lot of legitimate reasons for flopping, but the offensive line isn't one of them. Talking about the late start on the coaching staff because Bud couldn't make up his mind, understandable. The lockout of the players preventing a normal offseason in his inaugural season, fine. The Peyton Chase stopping any other free agent acquisitions, sure. The offensive line? No. He said during his introductory press conference that his offensive line was good enough to win a Super Bowl, and it has easily been the biggest detriment to this team during his head coaching tenure.

    And Amano was hurt early and Harri was never 100% with a bum knee. Velasco, a guy who mgiht have been a fit at OG had to play C. Not saying you don't have a point here and obviouly they over rated Hutchinson's value (have to give them some credit for trying) but the wheels did come off.

    And you till have to consider the fact that what was available in FA (before 2011-2012) and with all the holes the team had what they could invest on the OL in the draft (the draft wasn't good for interior OL guys thsoe two years either). Sure some of that is on Munch but Scott faded from respectable to total crap.

    Look, this team was pure dog crap when Munch took over and only became respectable through the draft and signing Hass. But for every hole they filled they still had multiple holes in the first few years. Now things are looking up.

    I was there as well. The Bears average starting position for drives was well on our side of the field. Was the D good no? But it's hard to fault them when they were on the field the entire time with terrible field position!
