I’m still a little stunned from Sunday and can’t muster up much this morning. Just some random thoughts.
I had a list of things I feel very positive about with the Bears this year. There is still a lot of good that has come out of this season. After Sunday, though, I just can’t go there yet.
Carolina handed the Bears that game. Ditto Tampa, and the Falcons, despite outplaying the Bears all day, handed Chicago Sunday’s game. And Green Bay has done their best to give the division over to the Bears. But the Bears wouldn’t TAKE any of those games, and seem like they don’t want to take the division.
When they win, the Bears’ defense sacks the hell out of and applies major pressure on opposing quarterbacks. Against Atlanta and Tampa, against almost 100 pass attempts, there were no sacks. Telling.
