I know it's hard.
But when there's a man with a football, what that guy wants to do is carry that football until he goes across that white line just in front of that yellow thing the kickers try to kick the ball through.
So what you want to do is to stop that man with the football.
It means running into him and holding on until he falls down, and then that other man in the stripes will blow his whistle.
That's called a "tackle".
And the thing about it is, in another minute or so those guys on the other team will all line up and try to do it all over again.
Suddenly there will be a man with a football trying to carry it past that white line AGAIN!
And this is where it gets tricky, because you have to stop him ALL OVER AGAIN.
On sports radio, whenever I find Mike Ditka talking about this year's Bears, it's almost the first thing out of his mouth.
The Bears need to tackle.
And then you watch them play and... why YES!
Mike Ditka is right.
The Bears can't tackle.
Maybe they just need little reminders...
Not even gonna talk about Jay Cutler's groin.
This particular period in time is especially painful for anybody living in Chicago.
Thank GOD for the Blackhawks and Derrick Rose.
