Scott Lindholm lives in Davenport, Iowa, and probably knows less about sports than you. That lack of knowledge forces him to utilize the wealth of knowledge available to research and find definitive answers. His knowledge comes from the Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, Sky and Telescope and listening to 670 The Score. He received his degree from the University of Iowa and an MBA his former employer was happy to pay for. His guiding philosophy is, “I don’t know, but I’ll find out.” You can follow Scott on Twitter @ScottLindholm.

The Bears-Packers game had something for everyone going into the game.
The Bears set several standards of futility in their 54-11 loss to the Eagles Sunday evening.
It’s a new day in the NFL, one that seriously brings into question the importance of defense.
Unless Cutler gets hurt again, Josh McCown’s season is over–and it should be, because Jay Cutler is the better quarterback who gives the Bears the best chance of winning.
