    I know some of you will say that I'm drinking the Kool Aid. Others will say that the beloved haven't played any quality opponents yet.

    Our Bears are 3-0 and it's time (not that some of us haven't already) to take this team seriously.

    The Bengals and Vikings were playoff teams less than a year ago. The Bengals are a favorite to go to the Super Bowl. Pittsburgh is an extremely hostile environment and an extremely tough place to get our first road win even though the Steelers are having a tough year.

    The scary part is, we've played some really solid football, have come through in the clutch, the offensive line has been extremely improved (against some really tough defensive fronts), and the defense has been ball hawking despite the fact that overall we haven't even been clicking on all cylinders yet.

    Could you imagine what this team will do once the offense as a whole gets fully in sync and 100% comfortable in Trestman's system? Factor that in and the offense is only going to get better as the season wears on and they get more reps in.

    We are in for a special year Bears fans. I'm not going to go so far as predicting a Super Bowl berth. But, a special year is going to unfold in 2013...there's no reason to think that we can't win the NFC North this year. There's no reason to think we can't be one of the top NFC teams.

    If a team starts out 3-0, i seriously doubt anyone could accuse you of "drinking the kool-aid."

    In any case, i predict a disappointing season...we most likely will win the Division, maybe even as a #2 seed with some Homefield advantage. But, our "special" season is going to end in the playoffs. If we face Seattle at Seattle, i do not see us coming away with a victory against that defense on their home field. (If it ends up in Chicago...might be a different story). If we actually make it to the SB, chances are it will be against the Broncos, and the way our Pass D is performing (and now that we lost Melton), Manning is going to have a field day, turning the game into a shooting duel, and i just dont see Cutler out-gunning Manning.

    I'm curious ,... please explain how THIS would be so disappointing ?

    Seriously

    I'd accept it as a gift,... considering all the adversities that have surrounded the team over the last couple of there or four years.

    I hope we make the playoff and win the division and even the SB(How great of a story would that be?)but honestly I see us not making the playoff. Sure we have a 3-0 start but those 3 victories havn't been won in Bronco style.

    IT WOULD be a great story the QUESTION IS Could it be sustained ????

    Not knocking YOU zifanG,...NOR the new management and all BUT they are still in the building/ rebuilding process.

    I'd be happy for the team if the made a playoff appearance ,.. as I have already said THAT would be a gift IMHO ,... I just don't want to this new regime become a flash in the pan.

    So far it seems to be a proven point the Bears can win with Cutty at the helm AND Trestman has made that difference happen . Can it be sustained ? One thing for sure,we're all going to find out this week, of how well this team may do over the course of the season AND seasons to come.

    This team has taken great strides thus far beating 2 playoff teams from a year ago, in overcoming offensive line deficiencies, receiving corp deficiencies, better use of it's skilled Offensive players ,.. No they weren't blowouts but the D did come up with necessary stops as well as the O coming right back down and making the scores to win
    If this team got to the Super Bowl,... I'd be as surprised as the many ECSTATIC AS HELL too,... who knew ??? HUH

    This is one reason why I am trying to take this season one game at a time. I want to watch this team grow into and hopefully what may and can very well become THAT perennial winner we have all waited to see ,...and for some of us .....it's been a lifetime of waiting

    I try to just enjoy each win, and try to "get over" the losses (I don't do very well when we lose). I try to enjoy the seasons this way. In regards to this season, I figure the team is learning and adjusting to a lot of change. Even good change is challenging.

    Injuries will drive a lot of what happens this season - both for us AND our competition. A good September team, can be a pitiful team by December, if it gets decimated by key injuries (like Cutler or other key players going down for the season).

    So I just go at it a day at a time, and a game at a time. Enjoy the season.

    As I get older, the off-seasons seem to last forever. I feel like a dying man crawling through the desert...

    It's painful when the seasons end now.......worse than it seemed to be in past years. I'm trying to learn to like hockey, to get through the first months of the off-season. It's "OK" but not the same as football. I really don't care much for the other sports. So when the Bears are done for the season, it really sucks for me.
