I am usually pretty even keeled about the Bears these days. Maybe it’s from running a Bears site for a few years or just wisdom coming with age, but I generally don’t get too worked up about Bears wins and losses. Today’s 21-19 loss to the Detroin Lions is not one of those days. I am really pissed off about how this game played out.
The Bears missed countless opportunities to keep themselves alive in the division race and win this game, but continued to shoot themselves in the foot (or the groin or ankle, depending on who you ask) time after time. The loss moves the Lions into the driver’s seat in the NFC North. This loss basically trumps the Monday night win over the Packers. The playoffs are certainly not out of the question, but the division title is all but sunk.
