The above photograph is me and real. I bought that Bears Snuggie at a Walgreens on Clark.
The Bears need to win games. Nothing else really matters. But they would be brilliantly served by either Cam Newton and Panthers handing the Atlanta Falcons a road loss or the Minnesota Vikings reaching deep down and beating a Detroit team they despise. (Who doesn’t despise the Lions these days?) I think the former is more likely than the latter but I’ll be watching both closely (and Tweeting about them).
A Bit of News…
Some of you will be excited to hear of the “persistent chatter” among scouts that Bears GM Jerry Angelo could retire at the end of the season. I can’t imagine Jerry not coming back in 2012 and giving one more crack at a title with a healthy roster.
Final Thoughts on the Game…
I put the entire game on the defense this afternoon as I have no faith in the offense’s ability to do much of anything. The Broncos offense should not be able to mount productive drives against Urlacher, Peppers, Briggs and company and I hope LoveRod approach this game with the mentality of, “if we allow fourteen points, we lose.”
