It was nice that Chicago Bears running back Marion Barber scored his first touchdown for his new team with 1:23 left in the Bears' 34-29 victory over the Carolina Panthers, but the ex-Dallas Cowboy needs to grab a few style points in the all-important post-touchdown celebration game. For Exhibit A, I give you this debacle: Yikes. Barber may be better off taking the example of teammate Devin Hester, who simply pulled off three somersaults after he broke Brian Metcalf's all-time punt return touchdown record: Or, as our own Maggie Hendricks suggested, Barber could avail himself of the services of the Jesse White Tumblers, a group that frequently performs at Bears games and helps underprivileged children. No matter what Barber does to fix this issue, this has got to be addressed. We can't have running backs 'facing themselves during touchdown celebrations — this is the NFL, people!

OK, it's not 49ers, and has nothing to do with the 49ers, but in a break from our regularly scheduled programming we offer Devin Hester's 69-yard punt return, capped by a tumbling routine that showed off his agility, if not his artistry. Later in the Bears' Sunday win over Carolina, Marion Barber...

Keys To The Game: Bears Need Manageable Third Downs

The Bears have struggled mightily converting third downs as of late. A lot of it has to do with penalties and just not being a disciplined team. According to STATS, the offense leads the league with 16 three-and-outs. Also, in the 39 offensive series the Bears have had, they have punted the ball after three plays 41 percent of the time. “To me, three-and-outs are the worst thing...
