For the last week the Chicago Bears walked and talked as if they were the most dominating team in the NFL. In fact, Captain Brian Urlacher revealed his true thoughts on the state of week 14: “I know the Patriots have the best record, but I think and feel we’re the best team in the NFL.” Brian – here are some of my thoughts: shut up, know one cares what you think, and we certainly could care less what you feel.
If anyone cared it would be someone like Dr. Phil. Since he hasn’t booked you to date for his show, the obvious is in – he doesn’t care either.
If the whining in Chicago starts for any reason with cheating, weather or obvious one-sided advantages, let’s remember a few things. First, anyone that has not been living in a cave knows what happened this week with another cheating-gate, but to beat the Bears you don’t have to cheat. Lovie, Brian, Jay and the Special Teams will just hand it to you. Second, both are cold weather teams in cities with very bad weather this time of year Folks in Chicago, two words for you; “Bear weather”. Remember that? Third, it’s not that the Patriots had any type of advantage over the Bears. The Patriots are just a much better team. The Bears are a good team in a suspect, injury plagued and distracted NFC North. For the sake of argument, if the Packers are not a MASH Unit on wheels and the Vikings are…well, not the Vikings of 2010, are the Bears talking about the playoffs or NFC North crown?
For all the haters out there – the Patriots are still in a class all by themselves. No team is close. Currently, the only teams close to their caliber are the Falcons. Come February, we will all see if the Patriots whip out there muskets and shoot down the Falcon’s or another team from the weak sister conference known as the NFC.
