On the Lack of Bears Coverage

Hello everyone. The astute among you will notice that I haven't done anything for football in the past few weeks. This is sort-of intentional, sort of not.  Last week, my wife and daughter were both pretty sick.

The old format will return in 2 weeks. This week, I'm sick, so you get an abbreviated synopsis. Last week, the Bears beat the Giants but looked every bit the mid-card, one-and-done-if-they-make-the-playoffs squad that they've been pretty much all year. RGIII looked better, health-wise, than he did previously. However, they are a bad team and […]
