Wait 'Til Next Year!
Maybe there really is a relationship between a Bear and a Cub - congratulations to the Colts, but I'm not buying the announcer's "analysis" that threw the loss all on the shoulders of Rex Grossman.
The Bears Defense couldn't stop the run and they couldn't stop the pass - makes it kinda difficult to win a football game - any football game.
Sure, the Bears offense could have done better, but you can chalk most of that up to the way the Colts Defense played. The Bears coaching staff didn't seem to make any adjustments at halftime and Peyton and company took advantage of that.
At least the Bears can't blame their loss on Beakman. Due to injuries, this was basically Grossman's rookie year, so watch for him to improve significantly next year. I was really disappointed when Brett Farve signed up for another year with the Packers - he would have made a great quarterback coach for Grossman, since their styles are so similar.
As long as the Bears can hold on to players like Lance Briggs and Coach Lovie Smith, they should make Superbowl XLII - and it should be a completely different game.
Hey, a transplanted Chicago boy can dream, can't I? Besides, there were 30 other teams sitting at home watching this on TV.
