Watching this one hurt  quite a bit. My wife, Beth, and my boy Robbie returned from their vacation about the same time I was watching the game, so it was hard to tell if I had tears of joy or tears of pain rolling out onto my remote control. I would have to say the latter. It’s great having my family back home, but right now Trent Reznor would seem like a happy fella next to me. I was very high on the Bears before this game, but yesterday the quality dropped to like 65% and it was no longer blue. That is unacceptable (Breaking Bad reference.)

Before I was a writer, I was a reader. I would scour all the sports news articles after a loss and try to find an answer. Something tangible to sink my teeth into as to why my Beloved lost the game. I DVR the game and always watch it again. It’s amazing how much tunnel vision I have during a game. If it’s a loss I’m reviewing, I always missed a lot of good things we did in the game when I initially see it. It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out why. I’m too busy thinking “what the hell is happening?” to notice good  plays. I’m going to share the hope with you after I get something off of my chest.

This is the first game of our short season that I really missed Brian Urlacher.

    I think that Bostic should have been on Reggie, he might not be ready for pass coverage, but he does have the speed to match up with Bush.

    • Robert Napier

      I agree, anyone to spy him would have been nice. He shouldn’t have just had free reign to cut all over us.

  • Connor Frisby

    The bears somehow turned a 40-16 rout into a 40-32 heart breaker.

    • Robert Napier

      Remember at Arizona, 2006 MNF?
      We won that one.

      • Connor Frisby

        the fact that we had done it before only makes it worse
        PS: that was the most glorious moment of my short life

          I ate a half gallon of Rocky road during the last quarter of that desert debacle. It also birthed the best press conference rant since “Playoffs?”

        I was at that game! Still one of my top games of all time. That was more impressive because they did it without the benefit of an offensive touchdown.
