The Bears are like prodigal sons, returning from the wasteland of Wannstedt/Jauron induced haze. Let's be clear about something. The Bears are not good. They stink. Thus, when Lovie Smith says in reference to his team that good teams find ways to win, he is spreaking a truth not relevant to this squad. However, for the first time in years the Bears all appear to be on the same page, moving in the right direction, and playing hard. At one level, that is all I ask. That and beat Green Bay twice.

By the way, Fred Miller was not on the O line for the Bears yesterday. Wonder why? It seems he and a teammate got in a fist fight and Miller injured. He will miss next week as well. That is stupid. What is embarassing is that Miller is 6'7" and 320 lbs., and he got his jaw broken by Olin Kreutz, who is 6'2" and 292 lbs. Both big boys to be sure, but Kreutz was giving away five inches and almost 30 lbs.? Miller's kind of a wuss I guess.

By the way, the Bears were the first NFL team to win 650 games (which is 40+ perfect 16-0 seasons). The Bears also have 26 Hall of Famers, although none greater than Walter Payton.
