What we learned Lions/Chicago
Ok, cards on the table, I didn't watch the game; paid attention on nfl.com's game tracker while working, so didn't even get to closely follow that. But I have feel like I can give a decent on....feel free to let me know if I f it up to bad....
Lions, their pretty damn good, and if the wildcard comes out of the North, it's going to be them and it won't be close. The Lions have done for their young stud qb what the Bears have failed to do, surrounded him w/really good talent. I'll take JC all over Stafford, but you wouldn't know it b/c one has Megatron/Petigrew and an OL. Their DL is as advertised; if they can get a few DB's that are worth a damn they will be a real problem for years to come....really the whole team will be.
Bears O. OL sucks...Omy/Webb are fail. OL can run block and that's it; if Tice was so damn great, he could get them to do both; I know there isn't a lot of talent, but there is enough to make them look decent at run blocking, so there should be enough to have them at least be competent at pass blocking. Forte is a stud, it's a shame he's going to ruin himself on such a awful team, 5.3 ypr that's elite. I said during the offseason that I liked Hurd the most out of the 3 we got out of Dallas, I think he could actually help this WR crew, and I think today was the start of something good for him, at least I hope. Cutler, man you give him the weapons/OL of GB/Det and he would be fine; what we have, I actually feel for jerkface.
Bears D. You just got lit up by a team that couldn't run on a bad college team....you officially are over paid; I'd say over rated, but your in the bottom 4th of the league, which is right where you belong. For a scheme that is set up to not give the big plays, you got eaten by it....not just this game either, all year. DB's are laughable, LB's are laughable, DL is laughable. There is officially no reason NOT to see Paea out there at this point in time.
Coaches, you are also fail. How do you use 2 TO's in the first qtr b/c again you cannot get the play in; then lose the 3rd on a challenge that stood no chance to succeed. Stupid. Those might have done you some good when you got that INT w/40 sec's left....oh wait, Lovie would have been happy to take a knee regarless....and that's if you could have even got the plays in. Pathetic. If there is one reason to clear house, The first qtr was a snapshot of it.
