What Bears Fans Are Saying About the Loss
I'm always curious to hear what the opposing team's fan base and media have to say about losses in games with significant magnitude. It's even more entertaining when the losing team is from Chicago.
Below are comments registered by Bears fans in response to a series of Chicago Tribune articles which chronicled the Bears 21-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game.
Please note that these are REAL comments...I did not doctor them in any way, or choose to fix the litany of grammatical errors.
Urlacher had a chance to plow into Rogers or at least give him a stiff arm to the head and hope it knocked him out of the game.
He failed to do that. He decided he wanted to test the footing on the turf he has been complaining about all of these years, and the turf tripped him up (Rogers barely touched him).
In no way did the Pack look sharp or ready for the Super Bowl. Theire lucky they won, tho they get full credit for their fast start. It's the only thing that saved them.
No surprise here, about the outcome. Aaron Rodgers is remarkable. It would have taken a bloody miracle to overcome his skills, and the fabled Chicago Bears usually play well short of miracles (or competent coaching, for that matter).
Martz will get a QB killed.
He's young, and he'll learn from this experience. Maybe next year, we'll have a real offensive line.
Rogers was pathetic today after the 1st quarter. He totally choked, Red zone pick ala Rex, short arm throws on third down, great field position winding up with nothing when it mattered.
Cutler is as soft as a cookie. Cutler would have curled up and cried if he had taken a cheap shot to the head like Rodgers did on the Peppers play.
I thought the differences in this game was the lines of scrimmage and Cutler's injury. Had Cutler been able to stay in, the Bears would have won.
I don't know what to think of cutler right now......To his credit, his expression is static, win or lose......but it ticks me off......he comes across as a prima dona........Regarding Rodgers......yes, though he was not great today either......he will stick it to the bears and every other team for the next 10 years........He's everything the bears would want as a qb and he expresses himself 100% the opposite as cutler...........
the bears did'nt have the refs on their side today. tell martz to take off his dark glasses so that he can see what plays too call. cutler is the biggest wimp ever
Our "star" QB was sucking on the field so he faked a "knee" injury.... We need to get this bumb out of Chicago... either that or pray for this cowardly lion some heart... Shout out to Caleb Hanie, I know you can't judge a book by its cover... nor a QB by one game... but maybe we should look in to this kid... lets face it, the Bears got a historical habit of overlooking the talent on thier bench.
I don't see how anyone here can blame Marinelli or the defense. They only allowed 14 points and held Rodgers to his lowest QB rating (55) of the season.
The Martz experiment should end NOW. This guy is SOOOOO...ARROGANT... He's going to call HIS plays, whether it is right or not.
As a life long Bears fan, I am disappointed, not with the effort, but with the outcome. Maybe the Packers were the better team. But they stuck with them and had a chance to tie the game with the third string QB at the helm.
Next year I see the Bears at 8-8. Cutler is not the answer. The Lions are up and comers and will probably finish better than the Bears next year.
The front office and coaching staff all need to be given their walking papers. To many coaching mistakes, to many personnel mistakes, the defense has went downhill since Ron was pushed out! Time to move on before the window is all the way closed. Keep Cutler unless some team is crazy and offers a 1st rounder, let him battle Hanie for the starting job.
Anyone who cannot see that two legged chokemeister of a quarterback for what he is, shouldn't be in the game. Devon who? Urlacher runs like a girl. Nothing between him and the goal line but a falling down quarterback and what happens? Rodgers knocks Urlacher on his backside.
