The Chicago Bears' Week 14 loss to the Minnesota Vikings was certainly a tough pill to swallow.

The 21-14 defeat drops the Bears to 8-5 and puts the team in a suddenly precarious position. This was a game Chicago needed to win, and at times it seemed like the Bears flat-out quit.

At least according to Twitter, that is. Let's look at an assortment of tweets detailing the Windy City Meltdown:

 

What a dog performance by the Bears receivers as a group...even Brandon Marshall, who had several great catches, failed in the clutch...

— Michael Wilbon (@RealMikeWilbon) December 9, 2012

 

The bears have dropped about 10 good passes so far...10,000 hours of running routes would allow one to pull a ball in?

— Jeremy Piven (@jeremypiven) December 9, 2012

 

The #Bears have fallen. And I'm now convinced I was wrong, they aren't going to get up.

— Mike Greenberg (@Espngreeny) December 9, 2012

 

In the midst of the Bears collapse, Fox Sports was kind enough to hit us with this gem:

 

RT @cjzero: Fox thinks the #Vikings lost and the #Bears won after airing game in which the opposite happened twitpic.com/bklclp

I guess Cousins was a good pick huh?

— Andrew Garda (@Andrew_Garda) December 9, 2012

 

Suddenly the Redskins draft strategy in April, not being questioned

— trey wingo (@wingoz) December 9, 2012

 

In case there was confusion, RG3 is tough... Jay Cutler, no.

— Not Aaron Rodgers (@N0tAaronRodgers) December 9, 2012

 

 

Chicago has a tough test against division rival Green Bay in Week 15.
