The Chicago Bears. That is supposed to mean something. But right now, I'm not sure it does.Instead, it shines brightly as a symbol of incompetency and joke football. Is it the heart? Is it the soul? The brains?
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was in a pretty good groove; that was until he broke his thumb. The offense felt balanced, the team was riding a five-game winning streak and the table seemed set for backup quarterback Caleb Hanie. However, the results were mixed.
The world of Chicago sports had its ups and downs over the weekend: The Cubs named Dale Sveum as the new manager, the Blackhawks lost twice and the Bears won their fifth-straight game with a victory against San Diego Chargers.
This week, the Chicago Bears had a bye. This usually means that the players are given time to rest up, visit family and do non-football related things in various parts of the country. But not Coach Lovie. He takes football very serious.
