Chicago Bears 2011 Record:  8-8 PPG For: 22.1 (17th) PPG Against:  21.3 (14th) 2012 Cap Number:  $101,887,741 Draft Position:  #19 Pick

This may come across to you as being rather self-indulging, but I feel almost certain that I singlehandedly caused the Bears to collapse last season. I spent all of 2010 talking about how “fraudulent” the Bears were. Then I spent all preseason talking about how the Bears were “sure to regress” in 2011. I mean, I was so sure that the Bears weren’t actually good that I might have been willing to wager a body part that they’d miss the playoffs. But then the Bears won 5 straight in midseason, including a stretch where they took down Philly, Detroit, and San Diego in successive weeks. Jay Cutler was playing extremely well, Matt Forte looked like an MVP candidate, and the Bears seemed destined to cause more trouble in the playoffs. And then it happened…I jumped on board. And that, dear Bears fans, is what killed your season. Cutler and Forte’s injury – on me. Marion Barber going out of bounds and then fumbling – well, that was Tebow, but you get the point. I apologize for killing coming over to your side and consequentially killing your team. My bad.
