Bears Take Down the Chargers
November 10, 2015 in Sports News
As week 9 comes to a conclusion with some transcendental MNF, the Bears visited San Diego, and even ended up being a quite interesting meeting because of the result, we could see why the bad seasons of both teams and their shortcomings came to play.
In the second quarter Jay Cutler sent his first touchdown pass of the game to Martellus Bennett, which became his 138th TD pass as a Chicago Bear, breaking the franchise record which Sid Luckman still had, the record was held for 65 years. This speaks of the terrible characters and bad luck that the team has had in that position since the decade of the 40’s. In fact, Peyton Manning has thrown 140 touchdown passes in four years with the Broncos. Just as a comparison.
Since Forte enters his last year of contract and may end in free agency by the end of the season, Langford has raised his hand to clinch the title if Forte leaves the team .Much credit must be given to Philip Rivers, although he did not have his two main WRs and his offensive line is devastated by injury, he can still move the offense and even score points. San Diego entered the game without Keenan Allen, Ladarius Green and with an Antonio Gates affected by a knee injury and during the game they lost veteran Malcolm Floyd, leaving Rivers with Stevie Johnson, Dontrelle Inman and Javontee Herndon as his main WRs.With the loss, the Chargers are alive at least mathematically, the odds to keep the season alive in January are minimal, with a 2-7 mark with five consecutive losses, we can safely say that this season the franchise has been a huge disappointment overall, it was hoped that in its second year, the head coach Mike McCoy would make this team a winner, except in some positive points, the team has fallen far short of its potential.
Although Cutler’s performance was not spectacular, he gave flashes once again of what his career might have been. We can not deny that Jay Cutler, since entering the NFL, has one of the strongest arms in the league and besides his talent is undeniable, but after years with new head coaches, especially new coordinators and although only by speculation, bad attitude, lack of experience or study, unpreparedness or all together, Cutler simply has fallen short.
