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."
