Vikings 38, Bears 17: All I Want For Christmas Is An Identity
The Fat Lady did not just sing for the Chicago Bears on Sunday in Minnesota. She also belched, farted, used profanity and spit in the eye of happiness.
It’s over for the beloved Bears. They are nice fellas with broad shoulders and good hearts but a mistake-filled game against a good Vikings team following two slippery efforts against bad teams has left the Monsters of the Morbid in a shocking three-game slide and officially out of playoff contention.
What went wrong? A lot.
All season long no matter what the Bears did Chicagoans have said that they’re still better off than last year. Were we right? What if this team finishes 5-11 just like in the Trestman days?
The Bears, we are sad to convey, have not had a decent team since 2010, a good team since 2006 an exciting team since 1988 and a championship team since 1985.
But it’s Christmas. So back off, Scrooge.
And get healthy. — TK
