There was no bloody Monday and Tuesday for head coaches this week, but it has been a bloody couple of days for offensive coordinators. Add another
name to the list of casualties.
The Bears have let go offensive coordinator Terry Shea. A replacement has not yet been picked and the team is expected to announce the move later
Under Shea, RB Thomas Jones shined when he was healthy but the quarterback position was extremely disappointing, even before Rex Grossman's
season-ending injury. In fact, the Bears offense was last in the league by a wide margin. Perhaps the most disturbing part of this season was the fact
that QB Craig Krenzel actually regressed instead of taking weekly steps forward, this despite working with a quarterback-oriented coach. The Bears
were last in the league in seven of the 11 major offensive categories and set franchise records for sacks allowed (66) and penalties (124). In
addition to Shea, the Ravens have parted ways with offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh and the Jaguars released coordinator Bill Musgrave.
