I do think the Chicago Bears will defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday. However, if the Bears do lose, I think that they then will finish the 2008 season with a 6-10 record. I hope it won’t come to that.
In other news:
Add Anthony Adams and Adewale Ogunleye to the list of walking wounded. Also mentioned in that article is the fact that Mark Anderson, he of 12 sacks in the 2006 Chicago Bears season, has now not registered a sack in the last 13 games.
In “the players will hate us and treat us even worse than they already do if absolutely everything we write is negative” department, here’s a reminder that Adrian Peterson’s brother Mike plays for the Jaguars.
Kudos to Bob LeGere of the Daily Herald, who found a different storyline to write about today. LeGere looks at how the Bears’ passing game has faltered since Kyle Orton’s return from an ankle injury. Say what you want about Jerry Angelo. EVERY GM in football will have hits and misses, and the way it works is when your team disappoints, you focus on the misses. I’m as angry about the misses as anyone. But honestly, is everyone else as glad as I am that Angelo didn’t give Orton $50 million in October as many (including certain members of the Chicago media) were clamoring for?
Don’t get me wrong, I still hope Orton turns into the quarterback the Bears have craved for 60 years. But I don’t think he has proven himself worthy of $50 million just yet.
