Pernell McPhee: ‘S***. Teams like that, we’re supposed to beat them’

Sounds about right.

The San Francisco 49ers entered Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears as a gambling favorite. They had opened as 2.5-point underdogs, but over the course of the week, the line dropped and eventually the 49ers were 2.5 point favorites at a lot of sportsbooks. It marked the first time the 49ers were favored in a game this season.

Don’t tell Pernell McPhee that. The Bears outside linebacker offered up this frank assessment of Chicago’s win over the 49ers.

Considering how bad the 49ers are, it’s not exactly surprising to hear something like this from a competitor. Of course, given the Bears injury and suspension losses, it’s not like they have a lot of room to talk. In reality, it’s just a player from one crappy team talking smack about another crappy team. Given how this season has gone, that sounds about right.
