If you listen to Lovie Smith speak, you’ll notice he says “and we’ll go from there” a lot. Like every day, every time he is asked to speak, he ends his comments by saying “we’ll go from there.”
After the 37-3 annhilation loss at Green Bay today, Smith said “Sometimes it happens like this, and you give the other team credit and go from there.”
Where exactly are we going from here? Does anyone know?
The offense today was completely ineffective, obviously, but that’s not what lost the game. What lost this game was that the Chicago Bears defense continues to look worse and worse and worse every week. Not only did they get shredded through the air as has been par for the course this year, they also coughed up 200 yards rushing.
Much of this defense got paid fat contracts in the offseason, based on past performance. Now they’re not performing. After today, they have to be ranked close to last in the 32-team NFL overall.
The Packers were laughing at you, Bears players. The TV showed them….laughing about how easy it was to dismantle the defense of the NFC North division leaders. The defense of the players and coaches that were petulant this week: how dare the media and fans that don’t know anything question their schemes and performance.
Hopefully soon, Lovie will tell us exactly where he thinks we’re going from here. To me, I don’t think it’s up.
