    Jordan Palmer, per Schefter.
    How do you NOT see the problem of our offense not getting things going, earlier than the 4th quarter?

    I learned that our offensive coaching staff had our backup qb much better preparedthan shea, schoop, turner, martz or tice ever dreamed of doing.

    Agree Henry, our O was on the field for 7min's the entire first half, it scored on short fields and turn overs, again. Way to many punts and 3 and outs by the Cutler led O in this game.

    To piggyback this comment, The Lions were able to beat us, because THEY had the short field early in the game. Our defense wasn't even playing as bad then, as it is now.

    Why did the O have the ball so little? Because the other teams O had the ball the entire time Bears D can't get off the field on 3rd down.

    Yeah, but the other half of that coin, is that Jay can't make a 3rd down against one of the worst defenses, to hold onto the ball longer.

    I think it's clear the Chicago Bears are in transition/rebuild mode. On the bright side, a lot of young players are going to get a chance to play and gain experience. We'll find out sooner rather than later which of these young guys can play. Is it just me or is Eric Weems wasting a roster spot.

    Sure, the O didn't do anyone any favors & yes, collectively the accumulated time wears on a D but that would imply the D gets tired reeeaaallly fast by the way it was playing.

    Yeah its not like the defense was bad just this game. Its looked bleak all season. Still think losing two starting tackles is the blame for a lot of that. Bottom line is we scored 40+ points and lost.

    Sure, the D needs to get stops when they're needed, but the O needs to sustain a drive or two early on so the D doesn't get gassed.
