Remember when Mike Martz had good reason to be arrogant?

Remember when he was the architect of the “Greatest Show on Turf?” Really, do you?

It wasn’t that long ago. Now, that once highly regarded offensive NFL wunderkind is struggling to show the same prowess as the Offensive Coordinator for the Chicago Bears. In fact, to even call his struggles “struggles” is being very kind (to Martz, not to the word “struggles”).

The last time Mike Martz could even claim to be “Master of his own Domain” was just before kick-off of Super Bowl XXXVI in February of 2002.  Since then, Martz’s offensive mojo has been lacking and his decision making has been regarded as downright putrid.
