The Bears aren’t who I thought they were. I drastically underestimated both coaches and players. I feel shame.
Mock Earl Bennett’s return from an injury and he becomes “Third Down Earl,” not only the most reliable Bears pass receiver, decidedly the most stylish in the coolest orange shoes ever worn on a football field.
I suggested Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson would have their way with Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings. It was the other way around. The Bears’ coaches challenged their corners to play press coverages on the Eagles’ speedy wideouts and they were rewarded for it.
