Dennis McKinnon on Adam Gase’s play-calling: ‘That was bad coaching’

SHARE Dennis McKinnon on Adam Gase’s play-calling: ‘That was bad coaching’

Every week of the 2015 Chicago Bears season, Chicago Sun-Times Sports will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 1985 Bears by speaking with players from the team including Jimbo Covert, Dan Hampton, Dennis McKinnon and Otis Wilson.

When Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase failed to give running back Matt Forte any chances in a crucial possession during the Bears’ loss to the Green Bay Packers last weekend, Gase failed to put the team in its best position to win, according to Dennis McKinnon.

“First and goal at the four and you throw four passes? You deserve to get beat when you do that,” McKinnon said. “That was bad coaching. I hope they learn from their mistakes. We got to get a win against the Cardinals this week. But the Bears should have beaten the Packers last week for the first time in a very long time.”

Remember, McKinnon played wide receiver during his NFL career, so he must feel strongly about Forte’s chances of success to suggest that the ball not going into the air.
