Bears were missing Cutler and Forte and our defense still looked like crap. Minny didn't have AP and our defense still looked like crap.

The Bears put up 10 points. I've seen worse.

No doubt. We can thank Hanie (and Barber's two brain farts) for that. The guy is awful.

We gave up 160 yds and a TD on the ground to a team missing its #1 running back. I'm not going to spin that into some great performance.

We won, you know that right?

And it's ok to be happy about winning, stop being a douche.

And the name calling starts.

I KNOW WE WON. I'm solely focusing on the thread topic though. The one where people are pointing to a starter going out with injury and how it might affect our chances. I'm pointing out two recent instances of this happening and how I felt it helped (or didn't) our defense.

But who cares is my point. You play who you play, week in and week out. Every team deals with injuries, and every team benefits from another team's injuries so why discount that?

Jesus, you can point to name calling all you want but just be happy with a freaking win. We beat a team we should have, can you say that about a lot of other years?

If our defense sucks, how is one more guy injured not good news?

The fumble may have ended up costing his team 3. The running out of bounds mistake wouldn't have led to more Bears points.

Any way you look at it, hard to fault the D much in the Bears game.

The more years I watch the NFL, the more I believe in the any given Sunday thing.

This week we have a KC team who got pwned by the Jets, then offed the undefeated World Champs... who crushed the Raiders the week before... only to come home and get beaten by those same Raiders.

The only thing that matters is what you bring on that one Sunday.

I'm not discounting it. I'm just providing "comps".

Honest question: in your world, can one not be happy with a win, yet critique the game and find things to improve on after said win?

Again, I'm not "faulting" them for anything. I'm just saying that giving up 160+ on the ground to a team missing it's #1 rb is not something to hang your hat on. That's all.

Loved the win. Loved it. I'm just pointing out what no doubt the coaches pointed out in film study the next week.

Of course it is ok to win OR lose and critique or find good and bad. It's a complete catch 22...if we beat a team without their starting RB, it's because we should have. If we lose to the same team, it's because our D wasn't good enough for a backup RB.

My take on the whole thing is, you play who you play and it doesn't really make a difference with very few glaring exceptions (I am looking at you Indy). It could be that the Bears have nice run blocking and poor pass blocking.

Barber didn't just fumble the ball our ****ing D caused it. I'm about ready just to put every poster from 2011 on ignore.

Usually a team that can run the ball isn't just about the RB. We saw this for many years in Denver. A good rushing attack will work with any competent runner. But having a team put up decent rushing yardage when that was their sole focus is no surprise.

At the end of the day, they lacked balance and because of that points. Hopefully McCoy learns something here.

Just to put the performance in context: the Bears average 128 rushing yds/game this year. We allowed them to rush for 160 without their #1 running back.....who, this year in particular, has been responsible for almost all of their offense.

That's not good.

I really don't want to beat that horse any more so I'll move along now.

The Packers just allowed 199 yards to that same Bears team. The only this time the Bears used the THIRD string RB. Those silly Packers, no soup for them.

This is what you guys will be going up against, so I wouldn't be very worried if I were you.
