The Chicago Bears, the defending NFC Champions, are 3-5. Their offense is miserable, defense is miserable, and Cedric Benson is sick of being criticized.
For once, I can’t see that I blame him. He was given the ball 10 times in the first half, only three in the second. But I’m sure that was because the defense couldn’t get Detroit’s offense off the field to allow any Bears offensive plays.
All added up, it’s another disappointing season in Chicago. As used to losing as I was being a Bear fan, I have to admit I was getting used to winning. My mistake.
