I expected the refs to make bad calls against the Saints - like they have the past few years

players toss the ball to the refs in every game, anyone who blames Kmet for that ridiculous penalty is insane.

Bears had 140 total yards before the final drive.

Bears had a total of 48 yds rushing. THAT'S A JOKE.

Aren't we lucky we have an offensive genius as head coach!

Eddie Jackson has done nothing all year.  Not sure if it is the coaching or he is trying not to get hurt.  And why did we not target Graham in the endzone until the last minute of the game?  Are we affraid of the TE playing against his former team curse we have had for ages???

Kmet's toss of the ball seemed harmless - was that the reason for the penalty?   Has local Chicago media discussed this?

It did seem odd a guy would get a taunting penalty after a one yard catch.

As for Graham - deja vu.  Bears ignored Graham in the red zone against the Packers too....until the last play of the game.  This time Trubisky threw the ball into the end zone.

As for the poor rushing totals against the Saints - this is what Foles and Nagy's playcalling had to deal with when they faced 4 top 10 defenses.   Then Trubisky and Lazor take over and all of a sudden the offense was transformed.

Same offense except for inserting Bars for Coward and moving Ifedi to tackle.  But the big difference was facing bottom tier defenses in Minnesota, Jacksonville and Houston.  You saw what happened against better defenses in Green Bay and New Orleans.

Montgomery has shown, he runs better when the QB is under center.  We also went back to a lot of shotgun running plays.

The Bears lost quite simply because they played a better team.

The race is not always to the swiftest, nor the battle to the strongest.  But that's the way to bet them.

No doubt, the Saints are the better team, especially on offense where they are loaded.  I'd like to see our #11 used like they used their #11.

But I was proud of our defense, for the most part.  Offense needs some help and it will start on the line.

Yeah Brees didnít have to play a great game with the running game they had.

Mitch had it all on his shoulders.  Not a very good combination.

No word so far on any firings.

The Saints run game was not that much of a factor...Kamara got a lot of his yardage late in the game - Bears run D did OK with the 3 men in the middle.

Brees' just picks up 3rd downs so consistently, even when you get pressure he knows when/where to get rid of the ball.

Bears had no chance if Mitch has to carry the team.
