This loss hurt a lot. It was winnable the whole game but way too many mistakes to overcome. Again, the play calling lacked imagination. With third and two and the Bears stacked up the middle, why hand off to Chester straight ahead? What's wrong with play action to Chester and a lob into the end zone to Garrett Mills? The team played it's heart out. We were outcoached and with the no huddle of Chicago, outplayed. Why not play the nickle every play and make the Bears try to run? My opinion has not wavered. Lack of imagination on game plan and play calling make it imperative to replace the head coach and offensive coordinator. Imagine this team with a guy like Del Rio, Tomlin, Cowher or Haslett at the helm. That's what you call KA!
Good points, still true.
