So many doubters! I mean, come on, people! You gotta learn to enjoy! I read the newspapers before the game yesterday and it was rare to find anyone who thought the Bears would win this game. But what did I tell you about dome teams? The Saints never had a chance, but let’s be clear: it had nothing to do with the weather. The Bears are, and have been, the best team in the NFC for almost the entire season. Their late season nothing-to-play-for slide was clearly an aberration, and if Lovie Smith had listened to the “experts” on radio and in print (and in the stands) then we wouldn’t be having this conversation. But luckily he had me here backing him up (and I urged him to go for it on fourth down as well — ballsy!) and together we are heading to Miami for one last party.

No, I haven’t got any tickets yet, and probably won’t, but I’m holding out hope that my prestigious Chicago Metblog press pass will open up some doors. But anyway, what does this team have to do to get some respect around here? Win the Superbowl? Two weeks, people, two weeks. I was more worried about them facing Tom Brady and New England, but I’m going to say it now, the Bears are a better team than the Colts and they should win this game. Seven point underdogs? Oh, that’s perfect!

Back on October 2nd I wrote this:

If you’re not into it now, you should be; this only happens once every twenty years or so, at best. I sense something special here with this team, just four games in, and with each week it’s only going to build. If it all plays out right, it’ll be just like magic.

That was magic yesterday, as the snow fell on Soldier Field and the crowd went nuts. One more game to go, then the doubters can go home.
