It’s probably a good thing that the Chicago Bears eliminated themselves from playoff contention in 2008, rather than them winning and having someone else eliminate them. And actually, it’s probably good that they didn’t undeservedly sneak in, because that would probably mask the many holes the Bears need to fill.
As much as some members of the real media clamored for a multi-year deal for Kyle Orton, I think this loss emphasizes that while Orton had a great year by Bears quarterback standards, this probably isn’t the guy to take the Bears to the Super Bowl in 2008.
Hey-it was fun. Often exhilarating, more often frustrating, but in all better than I thought it would be. Right now it’s time for me to finish my 2008 Chicago Bears season page at www.bearshistory.com, then get ready to go back to weekly updates on the blog while I work hard and go back to school once again in January, in this challenging economy.
Let me say thank you to each and every one of you that have taken your time to stop by this here blog site throughout the season. I loved your comments, and am flattered all of you would take the time to stop by and read my thoughts.
Enjoy your new year Bears fans.
