LAKE FOREST – When you take a loss like the Bears did on Sunday, it takes a bit to collect your thoughts.
This is especially true with a team that features a number of players who are making the postseason for the first time. A 16-15 Wild Card game defeat after a 12-win season was, frankly, a bit to digest in the moment.
But after 24 hours to think about it, many of the Bears’ players are starting to give their thanks to their teammates and the fans for a great season, despite a bad finish.
They ain’t seen it done like this in a while. We’ll be back. Thank U Chicago. pic.twitter.com/OKtxpXNmzP

It’s been an amazing season with my Bears family, man. So much time, blood, sweat, and tears goes into each game we play. I just want to say thank you to my teammates — my brothers, the fans, and the city of Chicago for always having our back. We’ll be back.

Definitely an unfortunate loss. We came along way and made much improvement. More to come in the offseason. Count on it
