BEARS WEEK 6 REVIEW
Exciting game. The Bears made an exciting comeback but the team that should have won got the victory. Any team that allows over 300 yards rushing doesn’t deserve to even sniff victory.
Griese continues to impress. Critics will point to his 2 picks and fumble. But for a guy who can’t throw the deep ball, that 39-yarder to Berrian and the bomb to Hester sure made looked good to me. Griese connected on passes with 9 different receivers.
Even Benson looked as if he had a nice cup of coffee before the game. He showed some energy and more speed than we have seen all season. However, the Bears still did not make it to 100 yards rushing.
And so the Bizarro Bears season continues. No running game. Relying on the offense to comeback and win games. Shredded defense. No takeaways.
You have to wonder how a team with a rookie QB playing his first game in weeks can come in and not turn the ball over against the vaunted Bears. Or how the Bears could not stop the run–at all.
Luckily for the Bears (and their opponents too) the remainder of their schedule is littered with average teams, the exception being the (gasp) Packers. But that’s probably the last thing on their minds right now. They just got thrashed by 2 rookies and they occupy last place in the NFC North.
