Bears' downfall came at goal line

Full story: Chicago Tribune

Contrary to the goat horns Charles Tillman wore out of the Metrodome on Sunday night after the Vikings' 34-14 victory, the badly beaten Bears cornerback wasn't even on the field for the game's biggest play.

Dude, I am a life long Viking fan. Always will be. You calling Viking fans 'fair weather' just shows how poor you are at what you do. If you report what you see, then why don't you see how 'fair weather' your Bears fans are. Just reading this blog tells me that they hate this team, hate the coach, the coaching staff, Tillman and so on. Man, if you don't want your coach, let's trade. I am not a fair weather fan. I watch every single game right up to the end, but, I hate our coach. He is a complete idiot. I would love to have Lovie here. But anyways, my point being, you are the pot calling the kettle black. These bloggers also think you are a moron, and they are the ones you wright for.

WOW, you guys find words like M O R O N offensive enough to bleep them out. Damn, I thought people in Chicago were tough. Maybe it's just the mentally challenged writer of the column that takes offense. So if I offended anyone besides the columnist, I apologize. The Bears organization is great and I love the rivalry between the Vikes and 'Da Bears. But if it's any consolation for losing the lead in the division, at least you're not packer fans. I can't stand the pukers or their fans

I hate to say it, but I've been saying since week one. Charles Tillman couldn't cover an old lady in a wheel chair with square wheels! He sucks, he's paid pro-bowl player money but can't do the one thing a corner must do COVER! He has a lot of tackles, that's after his guy makes the catch, which is quite often! It's sad he's considered our best corner. What the hell does that say about our secondary?? The Bears should cut him and Vasher at the end of the season and take that $10 million dollars and sign some corners that can actually COVER!

Charles Tillman made one mistake that allowed (one) touchdown. Give the guy a break. You need to call out the coaching staff. Kyle Orton played his worst game of the year. Lovie Smith and Ron Turner called some lousy plays at the one line mark. Alot of mistakes were made in this game, but the media wants to beat up on Tillman. He got beat. He got tricked by the Quarterback and he decided to help the middle coverage guy.

The problem with the Bears is tha Lovie Smith looks lost on the sidelines, Ron Turner needs to be more creataive in his play calling, and Bauch needs to play some better defensive schemes. If Peterson did not asked the blown tackles, he would have only had about 89 yards rushing in the game.
Forte should have had more touches. This team is dead and it does not deserve to go to the playoffs. I am a Bears fan and I would hate to see them go into the playoffs and get beat. I am tired of seeing them get beat up on National tv.
The Bears need to call it a day. Allow the young guys to play and let's allow the last five guys to be a measuring stick for the young guys.

Let's see. Need a little "help"?! Lovie the Idiot showed what he's made of by refusing to double cover Steve Smith. Nobody helps an idiot that refuses to help himself.

Why do the Bears keep dialing that super stupid fullback dive over the middle on crucial times??? It fails EVERYTIME and they still keep doing it. Also, why does Orton keep handing it off to Forte on seamingly every shotgun play?? No creativity at ALL. Is the OC that retarded??

So Il Bruno - EXACTLY. I liked Grossman in the beginning (like all long time bears fans hoping for the best). NOBODY EVER went through so much (R@P as he did from all directions, EVER. W/ all the injuries leading up to his SB season (1st half that is) the showed guts, allot of guts, no doubt about that. BUT, sadly to say, HE JUST CAN'T PLAY THE POSITION in the NFL, it's official, proven, done deal. He's a backup at best. For the Bears, NOW, Orton is better, simple as that. Do I wish for a better QB than Orton, YES. But I wish for a "few" things more than that for our team.

5. DB's
6. WR's
7. QB
8. Hester as returner ONLY except used sparingly for trick plays.(not completely sold that he can't become a GREAT WR yet, but...)

PS - NOT thinking all of this will happen before I die (THX 85 Bears for the ONE time)...

It's become PAINFULLY obvious that da Bears need to "back up the truck." About the only guy who is top tier at his position is Forte(pretty sad considering he's a rookie)..
Actually, I thought Brad Maynard was EXCELLENT! It's too bad that we squandered some really great field position that he gave to us. Otherwise, I'd have to agree with you.

To quote Metallica, "Sad but true!"

Smith lost this game when he decided to go for it on 4th down. He should have taken the three points instead of what ammounted to zero points. Which then in turn became a touchdown for Minn. That's a 10 point turnaround. And its bad coaching. Why is he going for it in the second quarter? Dumb.

The beating the Bears took on the goal line was brutal. Turner needs to get a little more innovative in his play calling. Running into a stone wall over and over again lacks any imagination. I haven't heard of a Turner getting a beating like this since Ike slapped Tina around.
