I stumbled upon this brilliant observation in Bill Simmons' emails:
"Granted, good teams are supposed to blow out bad teams, but the Bears haven't been tested once. I absolutely loathe the way the media has just handed them the NFC path to the Super Bowl. I swear, they're the NFL's version of Notre Dame. Hey, let's play one or two tough games a year, and have everyone stroke us until we get to the playoffs and lose miserably. They've played six of the 10 worst teams in the league, beat up an RB-less Seattle team and should have lost to the Vikes and Cards. But they WERE who we THOUGHT they were!"
As if ripping the Bears apart didn't endear Jason to my heart enough, he calls them "the NFL's version of Notre Dame."
It's nice to see that someone out there has the exact same opinion as me (and therefore, the right opinion) on this matter.
