The Bears are more interesting to watch than they have been in a long, long time. Kahlil Mack is the real deal. If they can beat the Florida teams over the next three weeks they have a chance to go deep into the playoffs.
Supposed to get down to 37 tonight. I may take this back in February, but I’m so glad Illinois is a state with four seasons. I was visiting a friend in California once. When we’d go out in the morning I would say “gosh, it’s a nice day today.” He would say, “it’s always a nice day here in San Diego.” We’d go out the next morning, I’d forget and say, “gosh, it’s a nice day today.” Repeat.

Mack sure is fun to watch.
But…is the Bears defense overrated?
The Bears defense ranks 5th in the NFL in yardage given up (289 yards/game).
However, this could be simply because of the teams they’ve played. Bears’ opponents offense average 279 yards per game across all their games - so they gain a bit more vs the Bears than they do when facing other teams.
This week’s opponent, Tampa Bay, averages a league leading 473 yards per game.
