Again, it was probably time for Lovie to go but if the offense stepped up when they needed it, the Bears would be in the playoffs right now.
Lovie's defense choked in game that turned out to be turning point of season... There was no excuse for that joke finish vs Seahawks

Infact Cutler/Marshall are only reason that game went to OT as well

That loss sealed the Bears fate

No Griese should have played

And the Bears D played best you could hope for vs Peyton Manning.. Bent but didn't break

Gave up alot of yds between 20's but held in redzone

Bears D held the Colts to 2 TD's and 4 FG's ,, Grossman until final drive of game had less then 100 yds passing and several INT's and fumbles (1 INT returned for TD)

Bears just needed a little offense that game to win and Grossman didn't give them that
