someone called up the score saying, can you compare this team to the 08 cardinals who went to the superbowl. And while that makes sense, no way. Offensive line is like .2 percent as good as them, our receivers look like middle school guys compared to fitz and boldin. But i saw his point to an extent. Maybe this team can get hot
Riczaj01 and I discussed this concept at length the other day and we never could quite come to an agreement on it except for the fact that this shouldn't have to be the year that serves as a stepping stone to greatness after making the Super Bowl in 2006, but I see this year as being a stepping stone to either great things for the Bears or to further failure. The past three seasons each could have gone in different directions had we gotten the lucky breaks. We didn't, and the best we finished was 9-7 in 2008, just narrowly missing the playoffs. This year shows that we have the ears that all good teams have: the lucky breaks, a good defense most of the time, a good quarterback, and when things are going okay, a serviceable running attack. This isn't a bad Bears team, but they have a lot of work to do before they can make a playoff run this season. Offensive Line is just one area, but defensive playcalling another.
