Who here said the Bears would start off 3-0? Anybody? Yeah. Me either. They won yet another game they had no business winning. I hate to be the party pooper on this but they still haven’t proved they are for real and I think many will agree with me on that. Then again, I’d rather be lucky than good.
So let’s take a look at this: The Bears should have won this game easily by at least 10 points. It started off with Robbie Gould missing a field goal on the first drive. Later in the first half, Cutler threw a unnecessary pass for an interception in the end zone. For the touchdown pass that Cutler threw to Olsen late in the half, it was an inch away from being intercepted. So with that being said, the Bears were about as close to being in trouble as it could be.
Then we move to the second half. Cutler marches the Bears down the field. Earl Bennett gets down by contact at the 1 (Just barely but contact no less). So Lovie challenges the play which I thought Bennett was not down so I can’t blame him for that. However, I can blame Lovie for once again proving he is an idiot by going for it on 4th down. Cutler doesn’t throw the pass right on the money but Clark still should have caught that ball. How stupid of Lovie not to just take the points there? He almost costs the Bears yet another loss. Then in the 4th quarter, Cutler throws yet another interception but once again, the Bears escape disaster on a roughing the passer call.
On defense, there still needs to be a lot of adjustments. Rodgers had his way with the Bears secondary all game. Luckily, Peppers blocked a field goal and then late in the game, Briggs and Urlacher caused a fumble on what should have been a game-winning drive for the Packers.
Oh yeah. Devin Hester. About damn time. He needs to do that a few more times so maybe it can get through Lovie’s thick head that Hester has no business being a receiver. I’d also like to add that the Bears running game needs to get going. They simply cannot rely on just passing the whole game.
So I will take the 3-0 record every time but I am not getting excited. I’ve seen this story before. And I also know who the coach of this team is.
I am sure I’ve left some stuff out mainly because I am typing this late at night but feel free to add your insight to this.
