In this three part series, we will be breaking down the Chicago Bears schedule and predicting how the Monsters of the Midway will fare in 2012.
The Chicago Bears finished last season in the most average and disappoint way that a team could finish a season. After starting the season 7-3, Chicago lost Jay Cutler in what would end up being their fifth straight win and they lost Matt Forte two weeks later and only managed to win one more game after that.
The worst part about last year was right before the Bears lost Cutler, they had demolished the Detroit Lions and made the comeback kids look like the Motor City Kitties they used to be. Everything was clicking before it imploded in the worst; the Bears are looking to draw on that swagger for the entirety of the 2012.

Chicago Bears No. 1 receiver Brandon Marshall survived an injury scare not long after Devin Hester survived an injury scare of his own.

The 12,000 fans in attendance had...

If there's a sense that Shea McClellin is getting piled on by me writing this blog, then throw another log on the fire.
I don't want to sound overly dramatic because there is plenty of that going around as well.
There's no reason to panic because we're only four practices into camp and there's a long long ways to go.
The best way to evaluate this is to say...

Just a couple of weeks ago I brought you a dreadful performance of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" by Bears QB Jay Cutler. Now it is University of Illinois football coach Tim Beckman's turn at the famous song.
It wasn't a great performance, but it added more enthusiasm to it than Cutler did. Hopefully, Beckman and the Illini play with this enthusiasm during the...
