Bears offense a no-show so far

CHICAGO -- It's safe to say the Bears' offense has been a bit stagnant so far in this crucial game.

Green Bay has outgained them 159 yards to 44. The Bears are within four points at 7-3, but that's only because Danieal Manning returned a kickoff 70 yards -- dragging Packers safety Jarrett Bush for the final 25 yards of it -- to set the Bears up at the Packers' 29-yard line.

The big problem is that the Bears can't sustain a drive. The went three-and-out on their first two possessions and have only run 15 plays in the first half. (As we type these words, there are four minutes left in the second quarter.)
