    Huge win in an ugly game. Put us back in the race for the division.

    With apologies to David Bass, I think the biggest play in this game was the coin flip. When the weather was it's most extreme during the game--about the first 10:00 of the first quarter--you couldn't throw the ball into the wind with any hope of success. And indications are that the wind at your back was an added benefit. The remainder of the game the wind had a significantly milder, less impactful crosswind impact. That created a huge disadvantage for the Bears in the first quarter. It's not like they ever got the benefit of that strong wind at their back that Flacco and the Ravens enjoyed in their first 2 drives that netted them a 10 point lead. Baltimore scored 10 points in the remaining 55 minutes of the game plus overtime.
    Wouldn't it be great if we booted the 200 lawyers from the House and Senate and replaced them with economists? That way, we'd stop harming our economy with laws that would apply to the politicians, too.

    Just happy for a win. With weather like this there's no style points.

    We're back in the race for the division and sitting better in the wild card too.
    Basic, yes, but it was something we rarely saw under former Bears coordinator Ron Turner. Turner's idea of in-game adjustments involved his boxer shorts. -Rick Morrissey.

    an ugly win is still a win.
    Your Chicago Bears: still learning about this newfangled thing called the "forward pass."
