Bears Mon Nov 30 2009

I'm Dreaming Of A New Head Coach...

50784403.jpg...and a new offensive coordinator and possibly a new GM, is what some Bears fans might be singing after yet another butt-ugly outiing by their team, this time a 36-10 drubbing at the hands of the Brett Favre-led Minnesota Vikings that wasn't as close as even that score indicates. A "complete embarrassment" is how ESPN termed it and few people could argue as Favre picked apart the Bears defense for 392 yards and three touchdowns. Five Vikings receivers totaled 51 yards or more with Percy Harvin racking up 101 yards and one TD. The Bears' offense, meanwhile, struggled behind Jay Cutler who passed for 147 yards, one TD and (yes) two more interceptions. Their virtually non-existent rushing game compiled 43 yards on only carries. The defense started strong, holding Minnesota scoreless through the first quarter, but began falling apart as the game more on.

So now the cries of "Fire Lovie (or Ron Turner or Jerry Angelo)" begin getting louder and probably won't stop anytime soon, even if the Bears do face the woeful St. Louis Rams (1-10) next week. Can you imagine how the blogs would blow up if the Bears dropped that one?
