Bears Fans, Mel Tucker Isn't The Problem

I understand that Bears fans over the years have grown accustomed to crappy offenses and great defenses from the team. I also realize that seeing the Bears of 2013 was a sort of culture shock to many who watch the team. I also get the need to place blame on someone's lap if things don't go well. I just don't get why Mel Tucker is getting so much undue blame.The Chicago...
