How you blow a 20-point lead in the 4th quarter (ok, and in the last few seconds of the 3rd) to lose 24-23, I have no idea, but that’s exactly what happened last night when the Bears played the Cardinals. End of the 3rd, Cards are up 23-3. Fifteen minutes and three defensive tuchdowns later, the Bears take the game. It all came down to the Cardinal’s kicker, who missed a 41-yard field goal on a windless day, at home. Still, it should’ve never gotten to that.

True, the Cardinals are pretty much horrible, but that has nothing to do with their players’ tallent. Maybe their heart, but that’s a matter of leadership. Their problems have everything to do with coaching: Dennis Green must go. I’ve always been under the impression that the Cardinal’s coach (and former Vikings coach) doesn’t deserve a head coaching job in the NFL, and hasn’t deserved one for a while. This just cements it.
Coach Green turns red. Punches mic, curses the media, and walks off during the after-game interview. With video.
