Soldiering On: Da Bearsss Find Redemption in the Dirty South
By Alexander Pancoe
Time to put on your grass skirts and dance. After a rough couple of weeks, Da Bearsss found redemption against Atlanta last Sunday with a commanding 27-13 road win. In Chicago and elsewhere, glasses were raised and hopes rekindled. Generic broadcaster comments like “they really played together as a team,” “you can tell that they really had their hearts in the game” and “the Bears really wanted that win,” warmed our hearts. Cutler played astonishingly well, going 26 for 38 in a 381-yard shootout and Pro-Bowl wideout Jeffery accounted for 136 of those yards. Also worth noting: this game was our 750th victory. Huzzah!
With a home game against the Dolphins on the horizon and revitalized support from its fan base, the Bears hope not only for victory on Sunday, but the chance to redefine a thus-far inconsistent season. While it’s possible the Falcons’ loss was more significant than the Bears’ win, it’s nevertheless a step in the right direction. Next on the menu: a can of dolphin-unsafe tuna.
