Okay, so I have to admit that I'm fired up about the Bears again. I started taking notice 3 games ago against the Vikes when I finally started to see some flexibility in the offense. The Bears started using a 7-man protection to keep Cutler upright and, for some reason, we were still able to get receivers open sending just 3 downfield. I remained in "show me" mode because the Vikes suck ***, but I still took notice. They've since won 2 more, with an impressive win at Philly. Kudos to the Mikes, Martz and Tice, but especially Tice because he seems to have found something that works with the O-line. Cutler is one hell of a QB when you keep him upright, and the Eagles didn't touch him. I'm starting to believe that this new-found offense - a well-protected Cutler and Matt Forte - can be just enough to keep this team in games. The NFC North could be the best division in the NFL (with the AFC North), and both NFC wild cards could come out of the division. If it ended today, that's exactly what would happen, and the Bears have a favorable schedule over the next 6 games. Huge, HUGE game against Detroit this week. NFL football will always be second in my book behind the college game, but it can still get my blood flowing when the Bears are playing good football. Bear down!!
