First of all, the argument here is whether they got shafted on that one play
. The Bears offense does suck and it was still a horrible call and they still got shafted. SO because your offense only put together one decent drive that TD should not count?

Yeah, I know the season is not over and he has to put on a happy face but what is he smoking? The offense needs a major shakeup starting with Terry Shea and David Terrell. Smith was saying how much he likes Hutchinson, are you kidding me? People are talking about Grossman, but when he got injured he had only one TD pass and three interceptions. Jones was carrying the offense and once the other teams figured that out he was not as effective.
This offense does need a bit of a shake-up, and I have said all along that I think they are stupid if they don't draft either Mike Williams or Braylon Edwards this year.
I think that when Bears fans and coaches say they like Chad Hutchinson, what they mean is that they like him a lot more than Jonathan Quinn or Craig Krenzel. They are not saying Hutchinson is the best QB in the world.
Grossman has the ability and he was learning. One thing certainly to be noted is that T. Jones did not start becoming "ineffective" until after Grossman got hurt. You need to at least have the threat of a pass in order to run effectively.

I didn't know there was a such thing as a Packers and a Bears fan? JK
By Bit@hing about the refs, we are not trying to hide any problems, rather we are just trying to say that that play should have been a TD and the Lions should have had to put a similar drive together if they were going to win. Instead, they got the game handed to them.
