Is it possible that a professional football team can continue to play worse and worse and worse in infinity? Can the Chicago Bears continue to get worse every week? Will the opening day score in 2010 be opponent 41, Bears 0, and at the finale next year will we see the opponent break the Bears’ 60 year old record of 73 points in a game?
I’m finding it hard to argue against myself on this, because the Bears are regressing every week. And fans, as I keep saying, 2010 is going to be so much worse than 2009. They have no draft picks prior to the third round, there will be no free agents to add (and if there were we’d inevitably be handed the next Frank Omiyale by Jerry Angelo) and yes, rest assured, Lovie Smith will be back no matter how badly the rest of 2009 goes.
I look for two more losses, including against Detroit in the finale, and we’ll go into 2010 refreshed to win 3 games at the most.
