when that game plan has obviously failed. Tribune columnist Steve Rosenbloom pointed out how the Bears' game plan wasn't working but they stubbornly refused to unleash one of their best weapons in Sunday's 20-12 loss to the New Orleans Saints:
It took eight series and an 11-point deficit with less than eight minutes
remaining Sunday, but it finally happened:
The Bears let their potential franchise quarterback drop back regularly and -- get a load of this -- play quarterback.
Actually, I thought the Bears outplayed the Saints, but a couple of things went haywire: A neutral zone penalty when it most hurt them and the outrageous reversal of a touchdown pass by the Bears. The Bears were frigged and should have won the game.
