Chicago Bears center Roberto Garza on loss to 49ers: 'It was embarrassing'

Rob Grabowski-US PRESSWIRE

The Bears fell to the San Francisco 49ers, 32-7, on Monday night, and Chicago players must now figure out how to move on.

The Bears suffered a terrible loss at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night, and now Chicago's players and coaches will be subject to severe media scrutiny. Center Roberto Garza told reporters: "It was embarrassing. . . . We're a much better team than that. This is not the type of team we are. We have to find out what is going on."

Garza and the offensive line had particular trouble protecting backup quarterback Jason Campbell, who was sacked six times (5.5 from Aldon Smith) and hurried countless others. The run blocking was not much better, as running backs Matt Forte and Michael Bush combined for 26 carries and 72 yards. That's an average of less than 2.8 yards per carry.

But the Bears' line has been an issue all season. Even though he missed Monday night's shellacking, starting quarterback Jay Cutler has taken the second-most sacks in the NFL (28) this season. Next week, the Bears host the Minnesota Vikings, who have 26 sacks so far this season.
