That was the 22nd time in Elam's career that he has kicked the winner at the very end. I've watched him do it for the Broncos forever. The Bears kept giving the Falcons the victory all game and they finally took it . Can't someone kick it in the endzone for a touchback instead of giving them the ball on their own 44. Play until the final gun, NO premature celebration.

Recipe for disaster: 1. Squib kick giving Atlanta better field position than a kick into the end zone. 2. Allowing Ryan to pass without a blitz when he has been completing 30 yarders all day. 3. Mental failing to believe that any team could score with eleven seconds on the clock. 4. Playing the whole game with defensive secondary in LaLa Land.
No pressure on a rookie quarterback. No protection for Orton.
Forget the post-season.

and let's not forget Tommie Harris' mental gaffe when he "fumbled" the ball that he had recovered. He didn't fumble, he thought the play was over and let go of the football

A lot of blame to go around but the one stinker at the end had to be our "highest paid kicker" not being able to properly squib kick and put the ball around the 15.

There are 4 posts (responses) ahead of me. I agree with all four of them.
Nothing left to say.

When you root for Chicago teams, nothing surprises you, nothing shocks you and you always expect the impossible from your team's competitors. By the way, what did all y'all think of the gifts the Bears gave the Deep South?
A squib kick when Atlanta needed field position, rather than booting it into the end zone, then very deep safeties on defense--with less than 10 seconds left--when all the Falcons needed was a simple out of bounds gain big enough for their expert field goal kicker?
The people of Chicago have always been know to be extremely helpful to strangers. I think they proved that once again yesterday when they were so kind to some guy from the Deep South named Ryan.

I say the game again last night on NFL REPLAY, the things the bears do well on defense(get turnovers) is the thing that just was escaping their grasp just barely.......it was fluky along with the ending........
Tommie Harries ball slipping out......
Brown dropping the give me INT with open field in front of him....
not punching the ball in on the goal line in two tries....
Lets get one thing right, the record shows Atlanta to have a better record, but Chicago is a better team.
Ryan had a super hot hand and best game all year, props to him.
