Miller: 'The better team lost last night'

Comcast SportsNet Bears analyst Jim Miller joined The McNeil and Spiegel Show today to discuss last night's loss to the Texans. But luckily for Bears fans, Miller feels that despite the final score, the Bears were the better team.

"I'm going to be honest," Miller said Monday afternoon. "The only reason I say that is because of the dropped touchdowns. They're playing unbelievable defense. That's a pretty good offense the Bears stifled again. The Bears literally shut down that football team. That was impressive. I know they didn't have Owen Daniels on that side, but they shut down Andre Johnson. Was he a problem? No. Wasn't a problem at all. I personally think the Bears are better than that. They're better than what they performed last night. I personally feel the better team lost last night."

If Jay Cutler hadn't sustained a concussion, things may have ended differently.

Jason Campbell's second-half performance failed to result in points for the Bears, leading to the team's second loss of the season.

"I think he's a quality backup but he didn't get it done last night," Miller said. "That was really his first test, and probably the first thing Bears fans are going to think of is last year they were 7-3 when the season spiraled out of control without their starting quarterback. To me, that was an opportunity for Jason Campbell to really reassure fans why he was signed."

Bastian Schweinsteiger happy with Manchester United's Europa League win

Bastian Schweinsteiger happy with Manchester United's Europa League win

Bastian Schweinsteiger's time with Manchester United wound down with him being essentially frozen out of the team for an extended period, but he was still happy to see his former teammates win a European trophy on Wednesday.

Man U beat Ajax 2-0 to win the Europa League final in Stockholm. The win sealed a berth in next year's Champions League for the Red Devils.

Despite the way Schweinsteiger's tenure in England ended, the German midfielder has still said positive things about the club since leaving for the Chicago Fire in March. He tweeted out a good luck message to the team ahead of the final.

Paul Pogba scored in the first half and Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored in the second half to seal United's win and the trophy to end a season that included a sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

Training with the Fire on Wednesday kept him from watching the whole final, but he said he did watch what he could.

“I’m happy for United," Schweinsteiger said after the Fire's 2-1 win against Dallas. "I’m happy for them. They are a good team and I’m happy they can play in Champions League next year.”
