Had to watch the game via TiVo... just watched it now. That's the worst, ain't it?
Well, that was fun.
No more sour grapes... Alexander could have had an impact on the game, but I think the Chicago offense did enough to win, even if you granted Alexander a great game. I think it's silly to blame it on his injury, and to put ANY weight on the idea of the Bears not practicing as hard for the run. If anything, having to gameplan for 4 WR sets and for a totally different rb gave them MORE work to deal with during the week.
Both are great teams, but it looks pretty clear that Chicago is the more dominant team... a very good looking offense combined with arguably the best defense in the game right now.
