Tice giving players chance to succeed

Posted by Larry Mayer on September 5, 2012 – 6:25 pm

Mike Tice is employing a common-sense approach in his first season as Bears offensive coordinator: Find favorable match-ups and exploit them.

“We have one goal, and our goal is to put or players in a position to succeed and minimize the amount of times we put our players in position to fail,” said Tice, who is entering his 17th season as an NFL coach after playing 14 years in the league with the Seahawks, Redskins and Vikings.

“If the match-ups are not in our favor-and there’s going to be many times during the season when the match-ups aren’t in some of our guys’ favor-we need to make sure that that person has help where we don’t put that person in that position, and then we have to make plays and be explosive.

“That’s really what it comes down to. It’s us putting the players in a position to go out and have confidence to know that they can go out and win the individual battles. If we win more than we lose at the end of the day, if we have great ball security we’re going to be OK.”

Working with Tice for the first time this season, Bears receiver Brandon Marshall said the best thing about the offensive coordinator is “his ability to communicate with each individual.”

“Everyone’s different and sometimes you have to approach guys differently, and he has a real talent for really teaching and communicating,” Marshall said. “It makes it easier for all of us to come to work and really understand our role and try to get it done.”
