Brian Billick, the head coach of the Super Bowl XXXV-winning Baltimore Ravens and now a Fox analyst, was instrumental in new Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice getting involved in coaching when his playing days were over.
Billick believes Tice is exactly what the Bears and coach Lovie Smith need to run the offense after two up-and-down seasons under Mike Martz.
“Mike has a complete view of the game,” Billick said. “Remember he was a head coach, and Mike has a bigger view of the game, and he has a certain mentality. That’s why, in my opinion, Lovie made him the offensive coordinator because he wants that mentality. They’re going to run the ball; they’re going to be physical.”
But Billick believes the Bears need offensive upgrades.
