Quick Recap / Afternoon Open Thread

If the #Bears somehow end up losing this game, it's completely on Lovie "Todd is our quarterback" Smith.

This was a tweet that I made early in the second half, after Lovie's constant stubbornness that we've come to know and despise. How "Mr. Accountability" chose to keep old man Collins in the game to throw his third, and then his fourth interception, is something that I will never understand.

However, our running game came to play (golf clap for Forte) and we've started our "second quarter of the season" with a 23-6 win. We're now 4-1, and have the Seahawks heading our way next weekend.
