Question no. 4: Will Fangio adjust?

One of the major complaints about defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, over the years, has been the inability to adjust. Sometimes, Fangio has failed to adjust at all. Other times, the adjustments come too late.

On Sunday night, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy made the smart move to a quicker-release from his quarterback on the majority of pass plays. Shorter routes enabled Aaron Rodgers to get the ball out of his hands a lot quicker, thus limiting what the Bears could do from a pass rush standpoint.

While watching the second half unfold, every Bears fan was wondering one thing when it came to Fangio: “Where is the blitz?”

The only way to stop Rodgers it to hit him — we saw that in the first half. The only way to hit Rodgers when the offense becomes much quicker-paced is to send more than just a four or five-man rush.

Against the Seahawks, the Bears are going to face an even more mobile quarterback in Russell Wilson. Seattle’s offensive line is not nearly as good as Green Bay’s, but if Pete Carroll makes any adjustments throughout the game in order to help against Chicago’s pass rush, will Fangio do the same?
