Bears Lose to Eagles 19 - 9

This week, the Philadelphia Eagles came to Soldier Field and left with a 19 - 9 victory. Backup QB Jonathan Quinn, starting in place of the injured Rex Grossman completed 26 of 43 passes for 215 yards, clearly was overmatched in his first NFL start in 3 years. And what was with the Bears abandoning the running game? You're starting a rusty QB, you've got the NFC's leading rusher in your backfield, and you only run 13 times? If Terry Shea keeps doing things like that, Chicago may start demanding they bring back John Shoop! Well at least Chicagoist can rest assured that the Bears won't lose this coming weekend -- it's their bye week. And they've still beaten the Packers!
