Plenty of Blame to Go Around as Bears Fall to Vikings 23-20 in Overtime

Dec 1, 2013; Minneapolis, MN, USA; Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (28) is tackled by the Chicago Bears defense during the first quarter at Mall of America Field at H.H.H. Metrodome.

It’s only fitting that the Bears’ last trip to the Metrodome wind up a heartbreaking 23-20 overtime loss.  That building has been a house of horrors for the Bears for decades.   Sunday’s stunning 23-20 loss was emblematic of the 2013 season – it was a game of missed opportunities and questionable decisions.  It was a demonstration of offensive firepower and defensive ineptitude.  It was penalties and lack of discipline sprinkled with “wow” highlight moments.  It was rookie mistakes on the field and on the sidelines.  This is 2013 Chicago Bears football.

If you thought the loss to St Louis was rock bottom, grab a barf bag and pull up a stool as we try to figure out what went so terribly wrong in this game and with the season.

    I am still baffled by Trestman’s call to kick it on 2nd down. The only thing I could think of was that in case we had a penalty or bad snap, we had 3rd down to try and get some ground back.

    That said, I think he is still doing a great job. McCown’s performance is proof of that. It’s not like Josh was some undiscovered genius of a QB, he is simply proof that Trestman’s system works. I can’t wait to see Jay run it for an entire season.
