Bengals Humiliate Bears in 45-10 Victory

This was suppose to be the Chicago Bears’ chance to bounce back after suffering a heartbreaking loss to the Falcons last week. This was supposed to be the Chicago Bears’ week to get things back on track to show they were a team that was on the rise again in the NFC. Well needless to say, neither of the above came to fruition against Cincinnati yesterday.

The Cincinnati Bengals would score on their first seven possessions of the game including four touchdowns and a field goal in the first half to take a 31-3 lead into intermission. As a fan, I just don’t quite understand how a team could be so unprepared for an opponent. The Bears were a step slower than the Bengals the entire game. I give credit where credit is due. The Bengals are a good team this season but the Bears appeared to be elsewhere other than on the football field. To add insult on top of injury, ex-Bear Cedric Benson, ran the ball 37 times totaling 189 yards (5.1 yards per carry), almost equaling Forte’s total production on the season. Chad Johnson had ten catches for 118 yards and two scores after calling out the Bears secondary via Twitter all week. Cutler was visibly upset on the field and I think that every player and coach should be upset after this game. There is no reason for a team to come out and basically lay an egg for the most part.

Usually there are moral victories you can take from losses but that is not the case here. Jay Cutler did throw for over 250 yards but also threw three interceptions and the Bears look inept on both sides of the ball to put it mildly. This is hardly the showing you would expect from a team that came into the year seeking to end their two year absence from the post-season. With their second defeat in as many weeks, the Bears now fall to 3-3 and find themselves looking for answers as a team. I agree with Lovie Smith’s post-game comments where he stated that the Chicago Bears should never lose a game the way that they did. With half of the season almost gone, the Bears can no longer use the excuse that the offensive line is a work in progress or point to injuries. Unfortunately new players having to gel together and injuries are part of every team’s season and they must find a way to make the necessary adjustments. If not, all of the hype coming into the season would be for nothing and the Bears will find themselves out of the playoffs for a third straight year if they are unable to right the ship. Hopefully, it will never happen again and that the Bears will get back on track with a win against the Browns next week.
