The Saints are back on track this season standing at 4-0.  The Bears are looking solid under their new coach, but they are in a tough division. After a rough Week 3 we were able to get back on track with a 12-3 week 4 performance.  That puts us at 48-15 for the season, better than all of the ESPN Experts. Week 5 is gives us some more tough match-ups.  Let's stay above .500 this week. Lions @ Packers - This is a great division match-up the in the NFC North.  The Lions are playing well, but still have weaknesses at WR and DB.  The Packers get their rookie RB this week to help the offense.  I like the Packers at home.

Saints @ Bears - This is going t...

Chicago Bears must regain their defensive prowess

Does defense win championships? Is this axiom, recited more often than an anxious teenager blinks, really as sacrosanct as the frequency with which it is repeated?  The reason we inquire is because, despite their 3-1 start, there are foreboding signs that the Bears championship aspirations could be derailed by a suddenly struggling defense.  The defense, which has ranked higher...
