Bears Tue Oct 07 2008
A month into the season and the Monsters of The Midway are standing all alone in first in, the admittedly, weaker-than-anticipated NFC North. The Vikings quarterback situation is a joke, the Packers offensive line, defensive line and running attack are, respectively, discombobulated, cobbled together with spare parts and non-existent. Meanwhile, the Bears latest victim, Detroit, isn't even in the same calling area as a regular NFL team. So who should emerge from this scrum of mediocrity but the Chicago Bears, the opportunistic Sons of the Second City, who have won their 3 games in a plethora of fashions already, see: special teams/defense against Indy; "effort" and that most mythic concept called luck against Philly; and bludgeoning a vastly inferior opponent with defense and newly rebuilt NeckBeard Orton who has no problem gunning for 334 yards! Seriously, Orton, welcome to the NFL, please, do this against a better "team" than Detroit. In the meantime, get your drank on, baller. You earned it for at least one week.
So dry your moist eyes and let the Bears mend your broken baseball-hearts, Chicago sports fans. The Bears have a most winnable and most excellent [Bill and Ted, really? -Ed.] chunk of the season ahead of them with mercurial, but mostly crappy Atlanta coming up this week; followed by QB-less Minnesota at home, the always "dangerous" bye week and than another tilt with featherweight Detroit. The Bears could very easily run their record to 6-2 by Election Day.
