The Bears have to keep winning if they want to make the playoffs.
The season is coming to a close and I'm sitting at 142-82. That's over .600 but I can do better.

third time,” said Forte while he stood in the locker room wearing a walking

TEMPE, Ariz. -- We were scraping the bottom of the barrel for Cardinals story ideas today. What is there to say that hasnt already been said? What depressing note can we illuminate that hasnt already been illuminated in this 30-car pile-up of a season? What strength can we muster for yet another grim game preview?
