View Full Version : Looks like Gun was right about Chicago's "razzle dazzle" offense...

Webster's Dictionary offers "attention-getting device," "anything that tricks" and "ruse" as definitions for the word gimmick. After a 1-4 start, the Bears' offense deserves to be listed under gimmick in the dictionary.
The actual content of what Gun said was absolutely correct. I've felt that way from the moment I heard him say it. This is the NFL, razzle-dazzle doesn't work for long, and any defensive coordinator will tell you that--in fact, one just did. Of course, the problem was probably more that Gun was no longer a defensive coordinator when he made that comment. Head Coaches are expected to be a bit more gracious in defeat. Still, as someone who lives in Chicago and had to hear Gunther's quote be made sport of over and over again, I always knew that I'd have the last laugh when the time came to evaluate the truth of what Gun said, even though I also knew that none of the twits making sport of it would ever revisit the comment once the offense got exposed for the fool's gold that it is.
