Bears fans and media really are the worst

When Jay Cutler left his groin in a pile in DC several weeks ago, we all thought the season was over.  Once again, an injury to the one competent Bears QB on the roster would fell the entire house of cards and we’d have months of terrible football to slog through.  But lo, there was another. The Bears rummaged through the scrap heap and pulled out Josh McCown, and he was pretty good.  He nearly won a ludicrous shootout in that...

The dawn of Trestmania

Are you ready?  It’s coming.  The long wait is almost over.  It’s just a few hours away.  Our beloved Bears finally take the field for real on Sunday and they face the similarly dressed Cincinnati Bengals.  The game starts at noon, and “it” starts for real at about 3 p.m. “It” of course is the symbiotic relationship between meathead Bears fans and the awful, horrible, local media that cover this...

Jay Cutler’s one of my favorite Chicago athletes of all time, and this picture does nothing to detract from that.   Little dogs are yippy and...

Does this guy look like a quitter?

Ahh, the meatheads are out in full force.  They’re all saying that Jay Cutler quit, that he couldn’t handle being down 14-0 in the NFC Championship game so he just started limping around and then took himself out of a game so that his sterling backups Todd and Caleb could finish things up. And I’ll admit that yesterday, when Jay first got hurt I was in meathead mode myself. Some of you got these tweets from my...
