Well, we learned one thing — the Bears play better in snow than in rain. Indy could have won by 40 points. Much as the Bears’ offense was woeful, it was more the Colts’ ability to play an effective short game and control the clock that made the game lopsided. If the Bears’ defense couldn’t get the ball back, it was hard to expect their rather primitive version of offense to ever get going. QB Rex didn’t help by fumbling and stumbling at key moments — and he seems to have an attention span that can barely sustain a series, let alone a drive.
The odd thing at the end: Dungy and Manning don’t seem to like each other much. The latter obviously wanted to pour it on. The former obviously wasn’t going to do that to his buddy Lovie — and, as we heard, he does things the Lord’s way. A nice guy finished first.
