First explanation every game will be that most teams make progress down the field toward the OTHER teams endzone.

Really hope it is not supplemented by the Super Fans and their dialect.

At least the Bears never had a player run the wrong way for a safety, unlike the Vikings.

We Cheeseheads have had one hell of a run of excellent QB luck since Holmgren came to town

We're gonna have hell to pay when A-a-ron retires to re-balance the books

We've had TWO QBs in 20 years.  That's really weird.

I started in the 70s

The Majik Man years were bright, sunny and pleasant compared to the late 70s and 80s

I started during the Bart Starr years. The Majik man years were a breath of fresh air after the likes of Randy Wright, Lynn Dickey, and all the rest of the forgettable QB's.

Fortunately this year, there hasn't been much good football happening, so it will probably be a while before they need that.

Mark my words: Glennon will have his "Majkowski game" against the Packers and Trubisky will take over not long afterwards and dominate for a decade while Green Bay wanders the QB desert.

Hey now, they will see a good team play most games

The Bears are a team marred by injury, year after year.  We entered the season with a single option at #1 Receiver, because our previous #1 Receiver went on the IR during preseason.  We promptly lost the other #1 Receiver to the IR by the conclusion of Game 1.  We also lost a Defensive Captain to the IR, and another Veteran Defensive Lineman.

When you're in a rebuilding phase, it sucks to lose that #1/#2 depth, because all you have behind it is unproven filler or aged players looking to cash out a final time.

When healthy, our team has a lot of promise - we just can't keep them healthy.

Bears sweep the Packers this year. Book it.

As a Bears fan I have a helpful tip for fellow Bears fans (or any other crap team):  Stop getting angry and sit back, drink some beers, and enjoy the games for the comedic value.  I started this approach to Bears games two seasons ago and it is a much more pleasant situation.  Besides, you have college football which is much better to watch even if it raises your blood pressure because your team is mediocre this year even if they are technically tied for #1 in their conference.  Then there is hockey coming soon which is even better than college football.  Unless you follow some team like Colorado.  If that is the case, go with the comedic factor.  Playoffs generally are the time to give yourself a heart attack in the NHL.

If you're an NFL team and you need to keep healthy on order to be competitive then you're not competitive. It's the NFL. It's a violent game. Injuries happen.

It'll have to be technical enough to keep the interest of the "smart" nerds who can recite pi to a thousand places, but don't know what a lateral is.

To be a Super Bowl contender, you need to be in the Super Bowl.

You'll notice, I didn't say that the Bears were competitive.  I specifically indicated that we were in a rebuilding phase - injuries dramatically impact the team, rather than being manageable with limited results, because they currently lack depth.  In a few years, they will be competitive, provided that our players don't suffer career ending injuries at the rate they're suffering season ending injuries.
