With this loss, I was going to say something along the lines of “Don’t blame the players. This one is on the coaches”. Then, I arrived home and thought differently. Let’s forget that it was the Bills that they lost to. The Bears gave this game away. This loss is on everyone. There aren’t any mulligans for the coaches anymore. For the first time, I am questioning Phil Emery and Marc Trestman. You chalk up Trestman’s poor decisions last year to him being “inexperienced”. There aren’t any more excuses. This is the type of the game that you will look at after the season if or when the Bears miss out on the playoffs on the last day of the season. And looking at the schedule, the Bears could start the season 0-4.
Offense: For the love of God, RUN THE FUCKING BALL. When it’s 3rd and 1, why does Trestman call a pass play? This shit was all on Trestman here. There is no excuse for him not to trust Forte to get one fucking yard on two chances. Forte was getting good runs all game and all of a sudden, Trestman pulls the plug on it? That is absolute bullshit. I even told the guy sitting next to me right before the second Cutler interception that the simplest thing would have been either a Forte run up the middle or a Cutler sneak. I’ve been bitching about this shit for years and still, the same results. Let’s not forget about Brandon Marshall fumbling the ball near the red zone in the second quarter. The Bears had three turnovers and it turned into 13 points for the Bills. Lastly, too many dropped passes. Like I said, it was a team effort.
Defense: They were awful. Just awful. And what was funny is that the Bills ran about four or five plays all game. When it was first or second down, it’s a bootleg, run up the middle or a pass to the running back. Then, with long yardage on 3rd down, it’s 15+ yard passes to a receiver on a slant. Oh, and fuck Chris Conte. First, he gets an interception which was nice and as all of us are clapping, he decides to run towards the end zone and fans. What a Richard.
Special Teams: Who cares.
Next up: On the road to play the 49ers. Fun fact? The Bears haven’t won a game on the road against them since the Reagan administration. Despite the new stadium, I don’t think that’s changing. I can pretty much guarantee that the 49ers will run about three plays all game. They are as follows: Frank Gore run up the middle, Colin Kaepernick bootleg run and long passes to Vernon Davis. Your thoughts in the thread.
