The Bears wide receivers owe Matt Barkley an apology. Or a pizza. Or a hug. Because the quarterback, in his first NFL start, deserved better than 10 dropped passes in Sunday’s 27-21 loss to a very beatable Titans team. Barkley was 18 of 33 in the fourth quarter for 210 yards – imagine those numbers without the stone hands, writes Brad Biggs. Josh Bellamy was wide open in the end zone on first-and-goal with 47 seconds left. Nope. Deonte Thompson had a shot in the back of the end zone for the game-winning touchdown on the final play of the game. Nope. Marquess Wilson: “As a receiving corps, we’re all upset. Because it was in our hands. And we didn’t answer the call. That’s on us.” Good news (sorta?) for the 2-9 Bears: Not many people saw the failed comeback attempt in person. The Bears will have a losing record for the third straight season and put their 15th player – Danny Trevathan – on the IR. Five games to go (not that we’re counting). Gonna be a long December.
