Still alive.


Thank God.

Let me start off by saying that this game should not have even been close in the first place. The Bears were in control midway in the 3rd quarter with a 21-7 lead while driving down the field until Rashied Davis had the ball go right off his hands for an interception and that is when the collapse began.

The Bears had four turnovers and all of them turned into points. Two interceptions, one fumble and the turnover on downs on the fake punt all hurt the Bears. Dropped passes was another thing that hurt this team. Orton has thrown the ball well pretty much all season long. It is up to the receivers to actually catch the ball.

The defense did all they could trying to hold the Saints. The Bears did not stick with running the football and that caused trouble in the 3rd. This caused the defense to stay on the field. The Saints almost had the ball for double the time that the Bears had it. That cannot continue. This defense is not the same it was a few years ago. They can still be productive but the offense has to have the ball more. The Bears need to run the football more and pass less. This will give the defense more rest. Running the football takes time off of the clock and rests your defense just a little bit longer. Are you listening Lovie Smith? How about you Ron Turner?

Danieal Manning had a kickoff return for a touchdown and also gave the Bears good field position after the Saints scored their first touchdown thanks to Olin Kruetz snapping the ball before the offense even moved.

At the end of the night, Robbie Gould proves that he is one of the best kickers in the league by kicking the game-tying and then game-winning field goal to give the Bears the win.

    Ok, let me get this straight. The Bears are one game behind Minnesota with two games left. With Minnesota owning all of the tie-breakers the Bears need to win out against Green Bay and Houston and Minnesota needs to lose two out of their last three against Arizona, Atlanta, and the New York Giants. Minnesotas games may be tough, but why should I be optimistic about the Bears winning out? I’d bet the Bears lose the last two. What is ALWAYS the outcome of a game after a long layoff between games? They forget to show up.

    Forgive me as check my optimism at the door. The Bears are NOT winning this division. As I said before, too little, too late. When nobody knows what team (good Bears or bad Bears) will show up to play, I refuse to have any confidence in this team.

    With Lovie as head coach, I think the Bears have as much of a chance of winning it all as the Cubs would with Dusty Baker back in charge.
