I don't know if I have ever been as disgusted watching a football game as I was watching the Bears choke on Sunday. I am still sick to my stomach thinking about it a day later.
Watching ESPN glorify Tim Tebow like he's the greatest thing in the world does not help. Tebow did not win that game; so much as the Bears lost it. This game all but ends the Bears playoff chances. It will take a run more miraculous than Denver's comeback to get the Bears into the post-season now.
Here is an interesting twist to my discontent, one that, I think, made it worse.
I used my DVR for the second half and watched it around 8:00 Sunday night. Even though I did not know the final outcome, a suspicious text message from a family member led me to believe that it would not end pretty.
Quite honestly, once Jay Cutler went down with the broken thumb three weeks ago, I put the Bears playoff chances on life support. They are, quite simply, an inept offense without him. I figured the Bears only chance at winning is to score on defense, or a Devin Hester return.
