Bears' Balance

Kevin sent this one to me.  It is a piece discussing the balance the Bears have found in their offense and defense.

We always get our best advice from washed-up old men. It reconfirms our belief that it's all going to end badly for us.

Take, for example, Rocky Balboa's salty old trainer, Mickey Goldmill (bet you didn't know his last name).

Mickey told Rocky that balance is going to make our favorite Pennsylvania pugilist a very dangerous fighter.

"You're gonna eat lightning and crap thunder," cracked Burgess Meredith's legendary character.

His faith in balance reminds us right now of the Chicago Bears. For the first time in two decades, the Bears are eating lightning and crapping thunder all over the NFL.
