Jordan Howard is one of a few bright spots for the 1-4 Chicago Bears

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

That winning feeling was fun while it lasted Bears' fans.

After knocking off the division rival Detroit Lions, the Chicago Bears laid an egg in Indianapolis against the Colts. On paper, it was a game the Bears should have won, but between the lines, the Bears had far too many penalties, they failed to capitalize on Indy's numerous mistakes and they couldn't stop Andrew Luck when they really needed to. And oh yeah, they forgot to get their number one receiver, the franchise tagged Alshon Jeffery, more opportunities.

The Bears are 1-4, but all is not doom and gloom. In the last few weeks I've actually seen some glimmers of hope, not only for the remainder of this season, but for the future. The glimmers are there, you just have to be open minded enough to revel in some glass half full observations.

In my latest edition of T Formation Conversation (Subscribe now on iTunes!) I go over some of the bright spots I've seen the last few weeks, none of which shine brighter than rookie running back Jordan Howard. I also briefly preview their next game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As a bonus podcast, you can check me out from Sunday afternoon, immediately following the Bears game, when I was on with these guys...
