The Dennis Green Rant is a meltdown by Arizona Cardinals coach Dennis Green in his postgame press conference after blowing a 20-point lead in the second half to the Chicago Bears in one of the greatest comebacks of all-time.[1][2]

Origin
In the game in Arizona, on Monday Night Football, the Cardinals led a dominating lead 20-0 heading into halftime, with the Cardinals' stingy defense intercepting Bears quarterback Rex Grossman 4 times and forcing him to fumble twice. Despite this issue, the Bears were able to start a comeback with the defense forcing fumbles on Cardinals quarterback Matt Leinart twice, and the Bears taking the ball for a touchdown, and ended the third quarter with the score at 23-10. Bears rookie Devin Hester eventually took the game-winning touchdown all the way, and Cardinals kicker Neil Rackers missed the game-winning field goal.
The Rant
"The Bears are what we thought they were. They're what we thought they were. We played them in preseason -- who the hell takes a third game of the preseason like it's bullshit? Bullshit! We played them in the third game -- everybody played three quarters -- the Bears are who we thought they were! That's why we took the damn field. Now if you want to crown them, then crown their ass! But they are who we thought they were! And we let 'em off the hook!"[3][4]



Coors Light Ad
The rant's popularity led to it being in a Coors Light beer ad.[5]
