Call 911 - Bears Twitter Is On Fire

"If you're keeping a scorecard between the Bears and the 49ers and the big trade for the No. 2 pick, score a win for the 49ers in Round 1 and consider it a setback for the power brokers at Halas Hall," Brad Biggs writes for the Tribune.

"The 49ers' 15-14 victory, powered by five Robbie Gould field goals, added further embarrassment in a season gone wrong for the Bears. With the exception of a wild punt return by rookie Tarik Cohen, a 61-yard adventure that required a lot more steps than that in weaving-and-juking flash, the Bears were completely manhandled by what was a 1-10 football team."

Ouch.

Lamarr Houston on his release by the Texans: "They just wanted young guys playing because they're not going to the playoffs any more."

He played almost every snap for the Bears' defense on Sunday.

Fool's Gould:

"Yes, the optics of what unfolded Sunday at Soldier Field are just brutal for the Bears, especially for Pace.

"He was beat by the kicker he cut, with the help of the quarterback (Jimmy Garoppolo) he potentially could have acquired, who happened to play at his own alma mater (Eastern Illinois).

"Only Bill Belichick knows if Garoppolo could have been a Bear, but one would think the haul Pace gave up for Mitch Trubisky (the No. 3 overall pick, two third-round picks and a fourth-rounder) could have been enough last spring.

"As it turned out, the 49ers got Garoppolo for just an early second-rounder and were on the receiving end of that haul Pace gave up for Trubisky.

"It's still way too early to know which franchise will benefit the most in the long run, but in the context of Sunday's loss to Gould and Garoppolo, it all looks bad. Really, really bad."

"Saying the Bears hit rock bottom by losing to the 49ers actually does a disservice to rocks. The Bears still have to play the Browns on Christmas Eve."
