Ever since the the Bears have lost Jay Cutler to injury the Bears offense have looked like a shell of their former selves, and it is probably going to get worse with Matt Forte being lost to injury for the next couple of weeks. The Bears’ game with the Chiefs was a quintessential defensive stand off. Chicago had a 3-0 lead and looked like it was going to stick, until Tyler Palko threw a hail mary pass into the end zone that was tipped by Urlacher and caught by half back Dexter McCluster for a touchdown. It was as lucky a play for the Chiefs as you will see and it was enough to win.
Down 7-3 the Bears could not muster anything offensively. Caleb Hanie played another miserable game, throwing 3 interceptions and not allowing his offense to get into any type of rhythm. Kansas City was able to add another field goal and hold off any type of scoring from Chicago the rest of the way for the win.
With this loss the Bears fall to 7-5 and look like they may be in trouble the rest of the way. Hanie does not look like he his ready to compete in this type of offense, and with Forte out, it will be a struggle the rest of the way to put points on the board. The Bears will get a taste of Tebowmania next week when they travel to Denver.
