There is not much really that can be said for the Chicago Bears dismal performance against the Detroit Lions yesterday. Brian Griese looked like Rex Grossman, although he did actually move his feet. The interceptions were still there, the sacks against were still there, and the rushing game was still not there.
You can blame the offensive coordinator, you can blame Cedric Benson, you can blame Brian Griese, and you can blame the fact the Bears defense is decimated with injuries and the secondary is a shadow of what is was at the start of the season.
In reality, though, as Brian Urlacher so eloquently put, the only thing that can really be said is, “We stink right now.”
At least his comment has a bit of hope in it. The “right now” seems to imply that he thinks that things might get better. Hopefully that is the case, although, truthfully it would be difficult to get worse.
Jay Mariotti of the Chicago Sun-Times also had a notable quotation in his column about the game.
Other than trying Devin Hester as an option quarterback, then having Devin Hester either pitch the ball to Devin Hester or throw the ball to Devin Hester, I don’t know what to tell you. Brian Griese was every bit as stinky Sunday as the Rex-terminator on his worst days, leading to a hopeless conclusion.
The Bears are screwed.
So what do you think? Are the Bears screwed or do they just stink right now? That is certainly not a question that I thought I would be asking this season.
