The Choice (and remember, death is not an option): Bears wonks’ ongoing public stupidity or Bears players’ ongoing public money-grubbing?

Brian Urlacher created another turnover with another spectacular diving grab of an Aaron Rodgers pass. Miraculously, the Bears still had a chance.
Urlacher gave the Bears possession at their 45 down 10 with 9:27 to go. The Bears might not have deserved...
