Meanwhile, Steven Schweickert at Bears blog Windy City Gridiron is still trying to figure out what to make of the proceedings. Sure the Bears lost, but they also lost their starting quarterback in the first half, not to mention Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman going down on top of an absent Henry Melton. All things considered, maybe the four-point loss wasn’t so bad …
… let me try to summarize what just happened yesterday: The Bears struggled offensively and defensively and let the Redskins run roughshod all over them in the first half, they lost their starting quarterback and put in Josh McCown, then in the second half briefly lost Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery, as well as Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman, flubbed up a surprise onside kick, and still fought back in a shootout to eventually take a lead before losing in the last minute. It was either one Cheap Jerseys Paypal of the best games I’ve seen or the worst best game I’ve ever seen.
