With a two game winning streak for the first time since Prohibition, the Chicago Bears are no longer one of the NFL's laughingstocks. Instead, they've reached the vaunted plateau of merely mediocre or maybe even, adequate!
Still, despite a dominant taking over games of late (Chicago has scored more defensive touchdowns in the past two weeks (three) than they've allowed in all of October (two)) there is much work to be done. This team has not arrived. This is not a complete football squad (hello offense!). Winning two games in October does not a season make.
How can the Bears open up their offensive game plan? How sustainable is this recent defensive onslaught? There are questions galore for an intriguing and quite frankly, strange Chicago team.

The French Quarter in New Orleans is the next stop for the Bears. Let's set the table and have a little fun.
