How the Bears fared vs. the Seahawks.

Passing offense: F
Caleb Hanie (10-for-23 for 111 yards with a TD and 3 INTs) has possibly played his way out of the league the past month, and he was as bad this week as he was when he first stepped in for Cutler back in November. And Dane Sanzenbacher (two catches for 26 yards) was the most productive wide receiver of the bunch.
Rushing offense: C-
Kahlil Bell, Marion Barber and Hanie combined for 132 yards rushing and a 4.3 yard-per-carry average, but they were unable to sustain it. The Bears were forced to throw late in the game, so the run was abandoned too soon as well.
Passing defense: D-
Tavaris Jackson (19-for-31 for 227 yards with a TD) was not intercepted, and he completed passes to 11 different receivers. The Bears got little pressure on him throughout as well, finishing with just one sack and two quarterback hits.
Rushing defense: B
Chicago’s run D was solid, holding Marshawn Lynch (20-42 with two TDs) down most of the way. However, Lynch scored twice on the ground, and helped the Seahawks put this one away late.
Special teams: D
Nothing went well for the Bears on special teams. Even punter Adam Podlesh had an off-day, netting 32.3 yards per punt and putting just one of his six kicks inside the Seahawks’ 20.
Coaching: D
Lovie Smith should have gone to the well earlier. Hanie has had plenty of opportunities to show what he’s got the past month, and if Smith goes to Josh McCown early on, who knows how this game ends up. Instead, they kept Hanie in, and kept giving him chances to throw picks.
Overall: F
This was a must-win game for the Bears; they sure didn’t play like it. It was a lackluster performance by a team that seems to be resigned to the fact that its season will end on Jan. 1, 2012.
