Seattle Seahawks Expose Chicago Bears
As the calendar turns to the chilly month of December, the discussion of NFL postseason is beginning to heat up. With the playoff picture becoming more clear each week, it is important to win games against playoff caliber opponents. Something that the Chicago Bears have struggled with all season long and showed in Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Furthermore, a fourth quarter lapse allowed rookie quarterback and the surging Seahawks to come to Soldier Field and defeat a Bear team that is not playing at the best of their abilities.
It has been a roller coaster season for Lovie Smith and the Chicago Bears. A season started with historic performances from an “aging” defense and a mesmerizing Brandon Marshall connection is slowly losing steam. An injured offensive line has caused the most negative commotion this season, however, the cause for concern regarding Sundays loss is the Bears inability to stop Seattle when it mattered most. Seattle converted 8 of 15 third downs (53%) but more importantly was 1-1 on fourth down. A fourth down conversion that is a microcosm of what should have been a ninth win for this Bears team. This was a game that playoff teams find a way to win, not lose.
Although impressive in 2012, the Seahawks are not exactly at the top of any NFL power rankings. In addition, they are notoriously worse while on the road. In fact, since Pete Carroll has been at the helm the Seahawks are 7-16 on the road. Three of those wins have came in the great city of Chicago. The Bears faulted when it counted against a decent club at home. This is a cause for concern, and makes you wonder if the Bears are ready for the elite teams in the NFL.
