Update a little late today, as I recover from that fantastic MNF game! Just a thought, If these teams keep ďgivingĒ us these victories, Iíll take it! Perhaps the common denominator is that the Bears force teams into playing crappy! Menace v. Papabear Poor Derek! For the second time this season, he had his Monday Night guy juuuust short-change him. Riding his huge day from Anquon Boldin, he must have felt pretty good about Matt Forte sealing his win. Forte fell just 6 yards shy
It's an honor to be scheduled to play on Monday night. It's fun to have the spotlight. But it sure does take all of the fun out of Sunday morning.
I've got my rituals to gameday, and all of them are "blown out" by having to work.
Today I will watch games, but really won't know which one to watch. I bet I fall asleep on the couch. It just isn't the same without the anticipation of Bear football.
So much of the offseason and preseason discussion about the offensive line has been about pass protection.

Before we get to the league, letís all take a moment to bask in the glow of an impressive Bears win against the Super Bowl favorite Cowboys! A special shout out to Mike Tice and the O Line for adjusting in a tough situation. D is looking like the D that weíve come to expect from our Monsters! And howsabout that Cutler guy, eh? He could be good! Norman v. Nick Nick refuses to believe that Ryan Grant is out for the season (really, bro, itís on ESPN and everything!) His Chargers
Don't look now, but your Chicago Bears can, and do, make adjustments.
Starting left tackle out and the replacement not getting the job done? Tice switches the players around. At the same time....defense getting too much pressure on the QB? Martz starts calling short drops and quick passes, carving up the defense and putting it on it's heals. Other team running on you up the middle in a disturbing manner? Fill the gaps with LB's and make Romo beat you with his arm.
