This will be the worst collapse in NFL history.
And, the only person who will lose his job is Mike Martz. That's how sad this is. Lovie could coach the Gophers. In 8 seasons; only 3 play off appearances, back-to-back winning seasons only once (in years 2 and 3), and after tonight and going 1-6 against the Pack in the past 7, a losing record against your rival.
Yea, he deserves to come back... sure thing... And don't give me the injury excuses. The Pack is short two OL's tonight and they're still making Peppers and company look like a JV team. Not a one sack and little to no pressure.
Two OLs vs. your QB, your #1 WR, your #1 and #2 RB...? Not sure I buy that.
First off, our "#2" running back lost us one game on his own without help.
Second, don't think a one of those personnel losses is the reason the Bears lost tonight. Those 35 points allowed by the defense has nothing to do with not having those starters. Bell looked as good as Forte would have.
There is no excuse to cover going from 7-3 to 7-8 likely 7-9. The defense has failed this team the past two weeks and that has nothing to do with injuries other than the safety position.
And the overall coaching stats speak for themselves. 4 losses to your #1 rival in 12 months, 6 of the last 7, only 3 play off appearances in 8 years, only 1 in the last 5 years since a Superbowl appearance and only being able to put together 1 back-to-back winning season run. Yup, that's because they had 3 injuries on the offense over the past 5 weeks.
No worries though, they'll pull a Brewster and turn the OC over again for the 3rd time and bring in the 4th under Smith.
