I’d like to see Jay Cutler put together a scoring drive with actual third-down conversions, just like big-boy offenses, and even those run by Derek Freakin’ Anderson. Palm-to-forehead.

Welcome to the new age, Bears fans. The previous regime was all right; it’s not as if Lovie Smith’s 10-6 record in 2012 was a disaster. But when it’s Super Bowl or bust, you need a nuclear-powered offense or defense—or both—...
