SB Nation is running a theme week this year among the 32 NFL sites, and this week the topic was, “What do they get wrong about my team?”
Before I attempt to answer this weeks question, I have to determine who the “they” is. I did a little brainstorming, and I decided on the following possible theys.
- The Media
- The Bears
- The Fans
Let’s just cross the fans off this list, because Bears’ fans are never wrong. Ever. We’re all sports geniuses. All of us.
There’s the Bears’ organization, and well... they’ve made a few missteps of late.
And then there’s the media.
From a local standpoint, I really think us Bears’ fans are spoiled at all the coverage we get. We may not always agree with it, but it’s there. Twitter is an explosion of Bears news every time something breaks. We have two newspapers in town, plus we get Bears coverage from the suburban papers as well. There’s the sports radio stations, and the numerous podcasters that talk Bears football. We have local reporters form all the networks, we have Comcast, ESPN, and many more.
From a national standpoint, I think we all have our favorites, but I also think we can all agree that there are a lot of out-of-town-stupid takes popping up about the Bears.
But what do they get wrong?
And who the hell are they?
I’ll let you guys decide by sounding off in the comment section.
