Words escaped me as I watched the Chicago Bears look like a happy but blind birthday kid aimlessly swinging at an pinata against the rival Green Bay Packers. I didn’t expect the Bears to win at Lambeau, but I did expect some effort or, at the very least, not an embarrassing performance.
It was another brutal and disappointing season for the Chicago Bears. For the second year in a row the team has choked when given the opportunity to make the playoffs by winning one of its last two games. Yet, only a day after the loss, the fact the Bears will not be in the playoffs is old news. What everyone wants to know now is whether or not free agent quarterback Jay Cutler will be a Bear next season.
It was 4:30 a.m. when my alarm clock went off Sunday morning. I was tired from not being able to sleep the night before, but I got up and put three or four layers of warm clothes on. I was going to need it. Weather in Cleveland, Ohio was going to be 30 degrees with snow and wind.
Here are some things Bears fans can be positive about despite such a disappointing season.
Week 7 injuries have ruined a lot of teams’ seasons and maybe even some players’ careers. The Chicago Bears did not escape.
