We(The Bears) failed to realize that you cannot LOSE YOUR #1 and 2 receivers and not replace them with ADEQUATE replacements. How the Bears thought they could get away with journey-man recievers and a ex-punt/kick returner turned receivers is just bad judgement.
Rashied Davis should never be allowed on the field again as a receiver. His drops are inexcusable, and at the most inappropriate time, they are not those of a pressing receiver, but of a marginal receiver to be frank. What does he have to press about? He signed a new deal last off season, all he has to do is perform and he would get his chances on a mediocre receiving corp. He's just a bad receiver period.

Professional receivers catch the ball.
They make catches.......not excuses.

as far as D. Hester, afterall, he is a return-man, slash Cornerback, made into a WR. In his first year. In a pro sport. Maybe in a year or two we won;t be so hard on him.
Rash Davis is at best 3rd tier NFL WR.
so ya get what ya pay for ...
Booker, well, that was an abbarition.
go after a one W/out Detroit let go might have helped. How is it Dallas can sign these guys?
And does anyone know why we kept Marc Colombo so long, let him rehab on our dime, and then he goes on to play couple years at right tackle for Dallas???? Gosh, I wish i worked for this organization, what do you get paid to sit there in the toilet all day anyway?

11 seconds in Atlanta will ruin this season. Just think if Lovie was in the reverse situation, and he had 3 minutes 11 seconds left on the clock. and not 11 seconds.
he and his Off. Coordinator would have turned the ball over on downs. Why do I say that?
well,we had a 4 games early with the lead with a conbined total of 4 minutes left (all 4 games total remaining time left when we had the lead)
Yet we lost,
so, what's to make anyone think Lovie could pull out a miracle with 11 seconds????? or three games to win three? didn't have to come down to this, if Lovie had sensed the moment in all 4 of those games. He's a flaming IDIOT !!!

Davis has been stealing without a gun since he has been here. What realistically do you expect out of him, he needs to go up a couple of steps to approach mediocre. Catch the ball, that is why you are getting paid, right? He should have been let go after last season and most certainly should be gone with Ron Turner at season's end. Give Bennett a try, he can't do any worse. I really put the blame on Jerry Angelo for all of this, for Kyle Orton it is like going into a gunfight with a swiss army knife. Booker- horrid, send him packing. Lloyd- worthless, gone at year's end. Hester- great speed, bad hands. This isn't where receivers go to die, they are already dead in my eyes. Wasting high picks on players who don't pan out (Bazuin,Wolfe,Benson, etc), it is the Angelo way. If it wasn't for Matt Forte, we would be looking at a 2-11 record right now. If they are not focused on the offense side of the ball in the offseason, it will be another long year in 2009. The fact that they still have a chance to win the division shows how lousy the NFC North is this year.

You cannot be familiar with this forum ..... or you wouldn't make such a statement.

This has been an ongoing subject of discussion all season.

It's not that anyone is totally enamored with a particular player ..( Bennett, in this case ..... Others in other cases.)........ It's the stubborn refusal of the coaches to give everyone a chance to prove themselves in a game......

Lovie gets on these "favorite son" kicks, and keeps playing them despite their smelling up the place.... And fans get to wondering why so-and-so hasn't been in for as much as one play.

When what we see on the field does not "stick to the wall", and actually reeks ..... then let's see someone else.

It has been maddening.

Case in point about what I've mentioned above .......... Rookie Tight End Kellen Davis was put in on something like a 3 yard line play a couple of games ago.

Being a Rookie, he jumped into an illegal procedure penalty.

Lovie immediately yanked him,..... and I haven't seen him play since then.

A good coach would teach the guy ..... maybe by reaming him out about not concentrating ..... then send him back in to see if he had learned.

Nope...... Lovie just goes into one of his funks,.. sits the guy,.. and we don't see him again.

Classic Lovie.
