Are the Chicago Bears really this bad or are the Detroit Lions really this good? Or is it both? Whatever the case, the Bears lost to the Lions for the second time this season, this time on their own home field, 16-7.
Maybe the orange jerseys are not so lucky after after all. Or maybe quarterback Brian Griese’s four interceptions was the problem and luck had nothing to do with it.
There really isn’t much to say right now. The Bears needed this win tremendously and rather than step up and play well, they played like they didn’t care. They could only muster one score? Unbelievable.
I really feel like the Bears have been a lot more talk than action this season. Every player talked this week about the importance of this game and yet, in the end, they did not do the things they needed to do in order to win it. After the game, it seems like more talk. Like this quote from Griese:
“This was a very tough loss for us. You lay down, you bleed for a while, but then you get back up and you go back to work and you work on the things that you need to work on that you’ve got to get better at and you take what’s promised you, which is the next game.
“That’s really all that’s promised to us. The season is not lost. We do have a long road to hoe, but I’m willing to put in the hard work to get it started.â€
The Bears are off this weekend (thankfully), so we will have to wait a couple of weeks to see if it is more chatter or if the Bears are really going to try to win a few more games this season.
