Last week, we called the Chicago Bears’ loss to the Detroit Lions a “scathing indictment of the Emery regime.” After yet another dismal loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night, we’ve decided to take a different approach.
Instead of giving you our take on how the Bears are doomed and everyone deserves to be fired, we’ve decided to collect some of the best Bears takes from around the web as fans and columnists weigh in on what has become a lost season.

Rick Morrissey had some thoughts on the comparisons between Jay Cutler and Tony Romo, calling them unfair…..to Romo. [Chicago Sun-Times]
Finally, Dan Bernstein says what so many Bears fans have to be thinking after the defeat: he wishes it had been worse, because that would mean that we’d be one step closer to dramatic action taking place. [670 the Score]

If you’re worried about having your spirits lifted too much, allow us to bring you back down to Earth:
If that wasn’t enough, here’s a reminder of what’s coming next week:
Three weeks, Bears fans. We’ve still got three weeks left.
