    Here are my issues w/that playcall:
    1) We are down 10 points, and the D hasn't stopped anyone and the O wasn't exactly scoring tons of points either, points were at a premium and the Bears needed those 3.
    2) Bush being in there screams run play. The OL hasn't opened holes up the middle all day, and Bush wasn't running very well anyways. Either have Forte in there and run it, which btw didn't work the last time they tried against a good DL, so why they thought this would work is beyond me. Or spread them out w/Forte in there and pass to the open person or have McCown run it in.
    I don't mind them going for it on forth w/the lead or in a less then 2 score game, when the D is holding and the O is running efficiently, but neither of those were the case.

    I agree. I wanted the FG there.

    Would have loved the FG, but the way the defense was giving up points and the lousy zebra calling, we had to get as much as we could.

    I mulched up the rest of my leave in the front yard. I was going to watch the game but I figured mulching the leave was more important.

    I think the Bears got "mulched" today. Wish I hadn't watched it happen :-(

    I mulched up my front yard and fed it to the Rams ... I wanted to feed it to DAA BEARRSSE but they rejected it.

    Bet you wish I had fed you that mulch now dont you Halas Hall ?

    Now I'm going to charge them money for it.
