The Bears’ offense flat out stunk on Sunday night. The Texans’ offense played the way the Bears typically do to win 13-6.
RB Matt Forte was completely shut down adding just 39 yards on 16 carries. His longest run was eight yards and he tripped on the poor field conditions on that play.
He had a big drop on a nice pass from backup QB Jason Campbell late in the fourth quarter.
The Bears tried to established the run, but really couldn’t. Michael Bush added some nice runs in the game.
His first run came on a fourth-and-one in the first quarter which he picked up, but then fumbled the ball away. The Bears turned the ball over four times compared to the Texans who had two turnovers.
Bush later broke off a 20 yard run in the fourth quarter, but the Bears went away from the run despite the success with him in the backfield.

Now Jay Cutler is hurt, just like last season. The question now is whether or not Cutler will miss extended time, and how Jason Campbell will perform in his absence.
It could be seen...
The Chicago Bears are expected to sign quarterback Josh McCown with Jay Cutler's status in doubt because of a concussion, ESPN Chicago reported Monday.

The Bears will need another backup...
Jay Cutler left the game against Houston at halftime having also been diagnosed with a concussion, but, for me the issue poses a bigger question than whether or not Jason Campbell can do enough to lead the Bears to victory (I'd suggest it just got quite a bit harder for them). The question is why wasn't a concussion test administered on Cutler before he went to the locker...

The constant rain has turned this Sunday Night Football game between the Houston Texans and Chicago Bears into an utter slop fest. But even then it’s not without its big plays.Tim Dobbins made a play to get after Jay Cutler and unfortunately for Cutler, despite absorbing a massive hit, it was all for nothing. Cutler had barely crossed the line of scrimmage, making the pass...
With Chicago Bears’ QB Jay Cutler likely doubtful for Monday night’s matchup against the San Francisco 49ers the Bears made sure they had an insurance policy.

Bears running back Matt Forte, who averaged a dismal 2.4 yards per run Sunday, credited the Houston Texans defense for his forgettable night.
But he felt the Bears also made it easier on the Texans.
"It's kind of like we ran the ball at the time when it was kind of like obvious we were going to run the ball," Forte said. "Plus, it was a sloppy game.
CHICAGO (AP) -- Bears star cornerback Charles Tillman is active for Sunday's game against Houston, while Texans tight end Owen Daniels is out because of a back injury.

What else must Lovie Smith do to win over the Bear’s fans and front office?
