The Bears have moved to a pass-heavy offense this season under coordinator Mike Martz, but it sounds like Martz is at least mulling some changes as Chicago gets its bye week as one of the lowest-ranked offenses in the league. In the six games in which QB Jay Cutler has started this season, he has dropped back to pass 208 times. Players other than Cutler have run the ball just 98 times in those games. When asked if underutilized RBs Matt Forté and Chester Taylor would get more involved in Week Nine and beyond, Martz said, "We've got to get them in the game more together. I think that's a neat opportunity for us. We've explored a little bit of that. Those are all things that we look at over the bye week." Taylor, who was signed to a contract that included $7 million guaranteed this offseason, has just 10 touches (including seven carries) in the past two games.
