The 2010-11 Chicago Bears are hosting the NFC Championship game. Let that sink in. In the face of doubting fans and contrarian media, the Bears team quietly excelled to elite status, becoming one of the top four teams in football.
The Chicago Bears will play the Seattle Seahawks Sunday for a shot at the NFC Championship. Last time they met, the Bears lost to the Seahawks and it’s been four years since the Bears won a playoff game. But the odds seem to favor Jay Cutler and the boys.
The Chicago Bears have wrapped up the NFC North division. They did it in overwhelming fashion by blowing out the Minnesota Vikings at the ice-covered TCF Bank Stadium. Not only that, but the Chicago Bears may have ended Brett Favre's career on a sack by rookie Corey Wootton.
On behalf of Bears fans at Soldier Field, at restaurants, at parties or watching at home, I would just like to say:Boo.We don't ask much of our squad. We love and support football in this town because organized sports have replaced community.
The Bears game in Detroit proved to be the kind that we all expected: really boring battle against a really bad team. The Lions aren't bad. They are baaaad. I don't care if the announcers and experts around the NFL say otherwise. They are wrong.
