Here is a list of the Bears power rankings.

ESPN: No. 20, down from No. 10 last week, with the following comment: "The Bears have lost late leads in all three losses. Are they unlucky or unable to protect a lead?" I don't know. 

Sportsline.com: Pete Prisco has them at No. 21, down from No. 12, but says he's hopeful for the future based on Kyle Orton's performance.

SportsIllustrated.com: Dr. Z knocks the Bears down to No. 19 from No. 10, accusing them of "chicken football" on account of the squib kick. His point: "OK, [Jerious Norwood] broke one against you the time before, so you get your special teamers on the sideline and grab 'em by the throat and say, 'Cover, dammit. This is the ballgame.' … If you're going to go down, go down like men!"

FoxSports.com: Adrian Hasenmayer, who I claimed was logical and understood Chicago sports fans the last time I wrote one of these posts, hasn't updated his rankings since last week. Maybe Fox found out about his logic and understanding of Chicago. Suspicious.
