David Haugh's notes: Questioning clock a futile exercise

Full story: Chicago Tribune

As many Bears fans in this TiVo generation have pointed out since Sunday night, breaking down the Falcons' final pass play with Zapruder-like video scrutiny suggests things really are slower in the South.

The bears deserved this loss...........clock or no clock. A headless coach who continues 2 NOT work on Sundays is beyond words.

Wow Haugh, you really have it in for Hamilton.

It's HIS fault the Bears lost?

I have seen Refs review the clock before many times at the end of games,so that is B.S! Remember seeing players running out on the field thinking it is over.Then the Refs are like wait,wait lets check the clock 1st.Although the Bears did played poorly,they did valiantly come back.Many games are decided in the final seconds.The Bears flat out got hosed on that game,and should have won it.I am by no means excusing our poor play in the game.But chalk up another game this year that the officiating has cost a team a game with poor calling!! The league better review & hold the Refs accountable at least.I am just furious that they wouldnt watch the clock closely in a game changing situation like that! Personally I didnt mind the squib kick,Robbie Gould kicked it poorly & he admitted it.He only got it to the 35.A average kick should have gotten it to the 20 or 25.A great squib gets it to the 10.Just another 10 yards on that kick & the game is over! Hamilton blew the pass coverage on that last play.It wasnt the defensive scheme.Hamilton has been around long enough to know better.Too bad for all the injuries,that we had to go to him in the 1st place.I have put it behind me.At least we are still in 1st in our division.So lets go rip up the Vikings at home,who could barely beat the Lions at home.Take care everyone! God Bless! GO BEARS!! BEAR DOWN!!

My initial reaction was there is no way that last Ryan pass play took only 5 seconds.... confirmed by replays tha the clock operator was slow in starting the clock... but the fact remains that the defense should not have allowed a deep out to take place.... calling a cover 2 there was a mistake, a cover 3 would have been more appropiate. But when you think about it... had the squib kick gone just 5 yards deeper, there would have been 5 seconds left and they'd have no choice but to go for a hail mary. Better execution on special teams wins this game.
