Young pros: Leadership in Chicago sports

Previous Next

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. Although, Cutler has never been in an NFL playoff and in recent days, there have been a few some unkind words about his personality and leadership.

Will the behind-the-scene dynamics of this team play a factor in Sunday’s game? And what about some of Chicago's other young teams –how are these winning teams coming together behind the scenes?

There’s only one reporter in this town that gets up-close-and-personal enough to answer those questions, "Eight Forty-Eight's" sports contributor Cheryl Raye-Stout.
