When it mattered the most, the Bears weren’t sharp enough. Again. This week, they were done in by two late holding penalties, which swung the yardage (and momentum) back to the Lions late in the fourth quarter. “It’s all the little things,” said Matt Barkley after the 20-17 loss. “And when we beat ourselves with penalties or missed balls or dropped balls or misreads, those add up. And they catch you at the end when every little inch matters.” A week after redeeming himself, Josh Bellamy dropped the ball again – literally, writes David Haugh. But hark, there might be good news (or at least news) on the horizon. A. Alshon Jeffery is back after his four-game suspension. 2. There are rumors legendary NFL executive Bill Polian might want a new job, and what better team than the Bears? And C. A quarterback just threw his name into the NFL draft pool, and hey, we know a team who might be in the market. Now, back to shoveling snow (watch out for Bears’ penalty flags).
