I disagree. Throwing the ball for an incomplete pass was much worse. If they run twice the half is over and Dre doesn't even have the opportunity for the penalty. Terrible play call there. Indefensible.
I'm not excusing Dre for the penalty, but he was drilled in the back after it appeared he was out of bounds. If anything, I thought the Bears player should've been called for a penalty. Also, even without the penalty, the Bears still had a great opportunity, one they never should've had, to get into FG range. You can't give away points in any game and Marvin and staff did it today.
