The Chicago Bears are also known as the Monsters Of The Midway.
That's right, when the coin is tossed up to start football games in the NFL, Chicago's team begins to transform into a pack of menacing creatures capable of striking fear into opponents by ripping them into pieces...not! Even when they clawed their way into
the 2006 Super Bowl, the Bears lacked the awe inspiring ferocity that the 85 squad was famous for.
The post-Ditka Bears don't hit like monsters, sack like monsters, or intimidate like monsters. The only people they scare fill up the stands during home games or catch the "action" on the tube. Monsters? Please. The 2008 Bears finished 9-7 while missing the playoffs for a second consecutive season. General Manager Jerry Angelo was "Pissed off and not taking it anymore!"
Enter the Jay Cutler trade. Exit 2009, another sorry season. Jerry, team president Ted Phillips, and head coach Lovie Smith vowed there would be changes, so enter DE Julius Peppers,
TE Brandon Manumaleuna, and RB Chester Taylor, all brought aboard to make sure 2010 would be a smashing success. Please. Of course time will reveal what's in store for the Bears in the seasons to come, but until some REAL MONSTERS are put in place from top to bottom to change the direction of this charter franchise, the only people this team will scare are their fans.
