Media perception and/or respect for the Chicago Bears is not something that ever concerns me, but it does make me chuckle when I woke up this morning with emails from my friends that tell me the Bears didn't win last night - the Packers just gave it away.
It make me chuckle because those same emails came after the victory over the Lions, and the win over the Cowboys. And, that's fine. There are some things the Bears do not do very well, but there are other things that indicate we may actually be a legitimate force in the National Football League. Honestly, I'm not completely sold on us yet, so let those emails keep rolling in. For now.
