I'm old enough to remember when we collectively agreed that playoff results were a crapshoot and sustained success is what matters.

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

I assume Kyle is still technically a fan of the Bears. I long ago graduated to simply relishing in how delightfully predictable they are at being such a middling at best franchise that ultimately, hilariously, sucks at almost literally everything football-related. horsefeathers like the ongoing, so...

When I say his last name, I say it as Horner. Like Bob Horner. I bet that's not the way it is actually said, therefore I'm not saying in out loud yet.

Re: Week 2 - Chicago Bears @ Denver Broncos - Sunday 9/15 at 3:25 on FOX

I'm guessing everyone's picking the Broncos, I do not have much faith the Bears are going to turn it around. Geez 1 game and we're already convincing ourselves the Bears aren't going to be good this year? Don't get me wrong, last week was very discouraging but I'm not ready to give up on the team y...

Re: Hultzen finally makes it; guy who looks at cameras DFA'd

with their left-handed bullpen issues this season, its a wonder it took so long for him to get here.

Wick, Wieck, Hultzen seem like a solid foundation to build the pen for next year. Does Hultzen ever get back into the rotation?

Randy Moss was never a head case. Frustrated, sure.

Josh Gordon probably had the most personal issues. Brown is just a diva on tilt.
