The Seahawks allow 302 passing yards a game, the second-worst total in the league, but it sounds like Mad Mike Martz is going to stick with Chicago’s running game in order to protect QB Jay Cutler. The Bears only threw the ball 19 times in a 23-6 win in Carolina last Sunday, but Bears RB Matt Forte gained 168 yards on 22 carries and two touchdowns, including a 68-yard gallop for a score. Reserve runner Chester Taylor also added 43 rushing yards. “They got out of their norm a little bit,” said Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. To make it work, the Bears have reshuffled their offensive line by moving tackle Chris Williams to left guard for the injured Roberto Garza. If Chicago can get the running game untracked, you can bet that Cutler will then be able to use play-action and Seattle doesn’t have the secondary to stay with Chicago’s speeding receiving corps, especially Johnny Knox and Devin Hester.
