Miller: ‘The Better Team Lost’
(WSCR) For fans looking for a bit of good news following the Bears 13-6 loss to the Texans on Sunday night, former quarterback Jim Miller has your silver lining.
“I personally feel the better team lost last night,” Miller told The McNeil and Spiegel Show. “I’m going to be honest. The only reason I say that is because of the dropped touchdowns. They’re playing unbelievable defense. That’s a pretty good offense that 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.”

With Cutler sidelined for the second half with a concussion, Bears fans received a rather underwhelming performance from the highly-paid back-up quarterback Jason Campbell.
Campbell completed 11 of 19 passes for 94 yards, yet failed to put points on the board, 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.”
