"...where I have a gun and I'm not afraid to use it."

Winning streak ends with loss to Raiders Mayer: Down 18-7 entering the fourth quarter Sunday in Oakland, the Bears valiantly rallied, twice climbing to within five points of the Raiders before ultimately falling 25-20. NFL Game Center: Bears at Raiders

Hanie holds up in Bears' loss to Raiders Biggs: QB passes for 254 yards, 2 TDs, but interceptions prove costly.

Johnny Knox does his best to bail out the Bears Potash: Johnny Knox is a struggling quarterback’s best friend. While the Bears and Caleb Hanie muddled through Hanie’s first start, Knox kept coming up with big plays that gave them a chance to win late in the fourth quarter.

Follow WCG on Twitter but please refrain from picking your nits.

Haugh: Hanie a bit shaky in debut, and Martz doesn't help matters Risky call by offensive coordinator at end of 1st half leads to costly turnover. Bears play complete game, except at quarterback

Raiders beat Bears at own game Hayes: It’s not often argued that the Bears lost the special-teams battle, but there was no dispute after their 25-20 loss Sunday, not even from within their locker room.

Are the Bears a playoff team with Hanie? Moon: Will he remain the Bears’ starting quarterback after his performance with three interceptions and multiple mental errors? PostGame Live: Yelling and stuff.

Rosenbloom: Hanie killed Bears, but not all hope What’d you expect from a guy who hadn’t thrown a pass all season? Bernstein: You Knew Hanie Was Bad, Right?

Isaacson: Hanie deserves another shot under center Less than stellar debut shouldn't be his only chance as Bears QB.

Rapid Reaction: Raiders 25, Bears 20 Wright: What looked like a debacle in the making turned out to be a hard-fought contest.

Grading out Caleb Hanie Bowen: Bears' QB made made a couple of plays, but his overall production needs to improve quickly.
