Saints defense provides many targets for Bears quarterback Jay Cutler

The Bears should prepare for the Saints defense Monday night to send pressure in passing situations with Rob Ryan's unit disguising coverages in the secondary to set some traps for quarterback Jay Cutler.

As shown here, the Bears have their Posse/11 personnel on the field (three wide receivers, one tight end, one back) in a 2-by-2 Doubles formation with running back Matt Forte offset to the closed side of the field in a shotgun alignment. The Saints counter with a 3-3-5 nickel sub-package and rush five while dropping six into coverage. Cutler must identify the pressure, find his primary targets and read the underneath defenders to avoid trouble versus the Saints "gold"...
