The Bears have the week off, and it comes at an opportune time. While they still sit atop the NFC North, they've lost 3 of their last 4 games and have displayed some glaring weaknesses, especially on offense. While the Bears rest, recuperate, and (hopefully) reorganize, we'll keep up with what's going on with the team and around the league.
Plus, we'll try to provide you with some much-needed distractions from your work day.
What to do, what to do... The Bears are off, but The Bulls are just getting started; The Deep Dish on SB Nation Chicago gives you all your viewing options, including where to find the Bulls, the Blackhawks, the Wolves, the World Series, and more.
Also on SB Nation Chicago, Miriam Romain wonders how long it will take Devin Hester to break the all-time touchdown return record, when nobody wants to punt to him. Maybe they should put him back on kickoffs, and have Danieal Manning return punts. Manning is a dangerous return man in his own right. And teams will have to kickoff to Hester, or face giving the Bears excellent field position on penalties.
Last Friday I spoke with Scott Jackson and Ken Meringolo from SB Nation D.C. for their segment 'Behind Enemy Lines', on 106.7 The Fan in Washington. The podcast, was a preview to last Sunday's Bears-Redskins game. I appear in part 4, but I recommend listenting to the entire show. It was a treat to get to talk to Scott and Ken, and I wish them the best of luck for the rest of the season -- particularly next Sunday, against the Lions.
Finally, If you're headed to Jay Culter's place to trick-or-treat this year and you really want to give him a scare? Just put on some pink gloves before you knock on his door. During the the weeks the NFL wore pink to promote breast cancer awareness, Cutler was sacked 14 times by men wearing pink gloves. The league went back to it's regular uniform colors last Sunday, but Jay may still be seeing pink when he closes his eyes at night. On the other hand if you'd prefer a'treat', dress up like Redskin's DeAngelo Hall and maybe he'll toss you a football.
