For issues such as the firing of Lovie Smith and Ron Turner, you'll just have to wait until the off-season for any news on that front. I wouldn't hold my breath for either, though.
So what's the deal with all these penalties. Is there a reason for these or do they just come individually?
Left guard Terrence Metcalf:"For me it was just a dumb penalty that I got. It was just something that you know you're not supposed to do. It wasn't the crowd, it wasn't anybody else, it was just something I took upon myself to do in the heat of the moment. You do a little extra something when you pancake someone or something like that. It's just a focus level."
Offensive coordinator Ron Turner: "Obviously we don't want that and I'm not sure why. The difference is we have a few more of 'em. I'm not sure what the reasons would be why."
Offensive line coach Harry Hiestand: "The guys are giving us great effort. Sometimes you get out early. That's not an excuse. Guys make mistakes. You ever make a mistake?"
And since it's a short one as promised, here's the last issue: Around 3:55 p.m. CDT on Sunday, our board deflated completely when Devin Hester dropped a mostly-certain 81-yard touchdown pass. Did that drop, as on Monday, deflate the Bears more than a drop by another player might have?
Turner:We know he's gonna have some great plays and he's human. Like anybody else, he's gonna make some mistakes just like everybody else out there. It is surprising because he is a great player and we anticipate him making great plays. But like I said, we have a lot of other guys making some plays and then not making some.
