Bears Lose, Packers Win, Season Ends

FootballSadness

The Bears fell at home to the Packers, 33-28, ending their roller coaster season. They have only themselves to blame, and the image of a wide-open Randall Cobb catching a game-winning touchdown pass on a 4th and 8 play will stick with me for awhile.

As will the image of the Packers running an uncontested fumble recovery in for a touchdown. So many mistakes for the Bears, and the offense couldn’t bail them out in the end.

Jay Cutler can’t be faulted for the loss, although that might not stop some folks from trying. He threw two touchdowns, and his sole interception came on the final Hail Mary attempt of the game. Matt Forte ran for 110 yards and scored two touchdowns, one receiving and one rushing.

In any case, we’re now in for a long offseason, and I’m left with a bad taste in my mouth. I doubt I’m alone. I’ll have more for tomorrow, but if you’d like to vent here, you’re more than welcome to do so.
