Preseason isn't the reason. The time of the year is.
The Bears have themselves in a precarious place. New offense, good talent (save the Oline) and an ever improving division.
Lovie and Jerry are scrambling up a rope that is thread baring. Ted probably should be too.
Still, I remain hopeful for the season. Not delusional, but hopeful. Something tells me that if we can avoid injury, we will be better at the end of the year than all indications are at the beginning.
So the Bears finished the preseason 0-4 this year. Does this bode well for the regular season? In my personal opinion, it does say something. That something would have to be proof. They need to prove themselves they are not some pretender this season. They need to be hungry out there.
Todd Collins looked like he could be a valuable backup for the Bears if anything did happen to Jay Cutler. Let's hope it never comes to that. He went 10/15 for 139 yards and a touchdown. It wasn't good

He has racked up 43.5 sacks and trails only Richard Dent, Steve McMichael and Dan Hampton on the Bears all-time sack list.
First off, I have to explain my absence so no one thinks that I have been away to hide... like some folks have done around these parts.

I watched the NFC title game in a hotel room in Miami. After that I boarded Celebrity Cruise Line's brand new ship named the Equinox for an 11 day voyage around the Caribbean that included

As the regular season closed, the Minnesota Vikings looked like a team lost. I was genuinely concerned about their chances in the playoffs against the elite football teams of the NFL. I felt that the Vikings would need solid performances to close the regular season and to open the playoffs before my brain would allow me to believe that this squad had what it takes to win a Super Bowl.
With that said, let's roll it back to Sunday December 6th. The Vikings were 10-1 and in firm control
