Mike Martz believes Caleb Hanie can handle all of the intricacies of his complicated system, and he doesn't see any reason why the playbook should be narrowed going forward.
Mike Florio on whether Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck will play together, if there is a tie for the worst record in the league, could Andrew Luck’s fate be decided by a coin flip and will Mike Martz and Caleb Hanie remain in Chicago if the Bears fail to make the postseason?
