From the hellish depths of the NY Giants sack dance pasting to the heavenly skies of a thrilling Philadelphia Eagles beat-up and shut-down, the Chicago Bears are one up and down team.
Everybody keeps pointing to the offense changing from all-passing to even-steven running and passing for the reason the O switched on.
The D has pretty much been awesome all year.
I was shocked when the Bears beat the Vikings, buy yesterday?
I was prepared for a 20 point loss.
Look what happened.
Matt Forte was unbelievable, Jay Cutler (except for the Carlos Zambrano imitation leading to his penalty) was the best he's ever been as a Bear, and that game-changing red zone interception of a Michael Vick pass was impossible.
Plus, and this will sound insane, but if I'm any other team kicking off in the NFL against the Bears, I might be more afraid of Danieal Manning than Devin Hester.
Yesterday, everything changed with a 31-26 victory over a first place Eagles team.
It's possible that the Bears are actually coming together right when the schedule gets tough (for everybody - see Green Bay Packers).
It's a long, blind roller coaster with these guys, and the bottom can go away at any moment.
If I keep expecting that, maybe I won''t hurl.
