Bam! Pow! And the mighty Bears fall.

And that’s that. Our mighty Bears fell yesterday. Being overpowered in every aspect of the game will do that. Bad defense, bad turnovers, bad bad bad. Though still a season to be proud of. Prince was pretty good too.

Everyone everywhere has a thought or two about the game. Wanna sound off? Tell us what you thought.

    I didn’t think the defense played bad. The safety blew coverage on the first quarter TD, besides that it was just a lot of yards and not many points for the Colts. Blame the QB and the offense for leaving the defense out there most of the game. Blame the QB for not making anything happen, which made it very hard to get much of a run attack going.

    Good year in a bad conference, things will be tougher next year.

    It’s not all the Offense. The Defense needed to stop somebody. If you don’t, then of course every single offensive series is going to be critical. The Colts stats on converting 3rd and long was brutal and they all couldn’t have come when the defense was tired. And for god’s sake, put a hand on Manning. The defensive line, for the most part, didn’t blitz or touch him all night.

    It was a team collapse. Blame the offensive coordinator for not sticking with the running game. Jones had 113 yards and was getting 7.5 yards a carry.

    It’s cute to blame “bad rex”, and he didn’t help, but he certainly wasn’t alone.

    Rex certainly did not lose the game by himself, but his misplays and errors are magnified because the other areas of the team failed as well. He was a lightning rod to begin with and did not help matters whatsoever.

    Manning was protected all night long. Rex seemed to have the pocket collapsing on top of him on every play.

    It’s no wonder that when the city offered the Bears a parade, they replied with a “Thanks, but no thanks”.

    Two fumbled snaps? Hello! This is the NFL, not the IHSA.

    Seriously though, in my opinion, the real reason for Da Bears loss is easy – global warming.

    Open your eyes people, global warming is worse than you thought! Just step outside and feel that global warming…OUCH!!! That’s hot, er, I mean, cold…

    I agree that the play calling was not so great, but they pretty much knew that they had the 24th rated passer in the NFL to work with. I believe the Bears had 47 plays from scrimmage and 19 were rushes, that could have been higher. Keep in mind on 5 of the total plays, Rex fell once, fumbled twice and threw two picks.

    The rushing of Jones is a little mis-leading as much of his yardage was on one play. The Bears did stick with the run into the 4th quarter, but by that time they had very little to show for it (except the first TD drive).

    Defensive lines don’t blitz!
