Tour de Force

Evidently, the week off worked to the Bears advantage. A thoroughly dominating performance and maybe a little statement that two weeks ago was a bit of a fluke?

400+ yards of offense, a 15 minute differential in possession time, 5 forced turnovers. A good job all around. These guys are playoff bound for sure and should even make a good showing if all the breaks go their way.

And the Blackhawks ... if the playoffs started tomorrow, the Blackhawks would miss the cut by about three teams. And that's with a mere 10 games played. These guys are just treading water.

Even though the win was decisive,it was only the niners. The Bears have a pretty soft schedule. The only top teir teams on the list are the Giants and Patriots. How they perform against them will be a better measurement of how good they REALLY are. But I must admit, That was one of the most entertaining Bears game I've seen.

It's been funny how this team has been treated nationally by the "experts" throughout the season. Only one has said from the start that the team would be special, he being the face of the franchise, Mike Ditka. I'm taking a perverse pleasure hearing Jimmie Johnson, Howie Long and long time Bear hater, Terry Bradshaw boot lick this team as the best in the NFL.

M, perhaps you should root for Chicago's newest hockey team. No, it is not the Wolves. They are the Chicago Hounds of the United Hockey League. I think they are tied for first.

I didn't see any games yesterday, as I was still away in the mountains.

Eagles lost (no surprise) but I could kick myself in the ass for betting on them anyway.

I did bet on the Bears, so that's a plus.

The Hawks are in Philly tonight, but with former Flyer Bouche in net, I'd have no confidence. Then again, I have ZERO confidence in Esche, so y'all might want to chalk up one in the W column tonight, even if Forsberg has given the Flyers a 1-0 lead in the first. Lots of hockey left to play...

LMAO! No, no...the Flyers still suck more than the Hawks, but they're separated only by ONE point.

How sad for two cities that absolutely love the sport that we can't watch a decent hockey game. It's pathetic - seriously embarrassing.
