1. From Tom Chambers:

Until the Bears can prove they can build a winner, they can't.

They had, like a bird flying into it, their window last year. I will bet either or both of you $50 that the Bears won't reach the Super Bowl with this team.

C'mon. Go to battle with a failure kicker? Classic Bears. Classic. Generations DNA Bears. I remember when their biggest weapon was their punter! There are hundreds more examples.

Sorry gents, this has been going on for decades. I'll believe it when I see it, simultaneously with their search for a KICKER!.

They make a 33-year old Twinkie last forever. They have 60+ years of ineptitude to overcome.

The Bears have done nothing but disappoint and taunt this city since the day I was born.

Just sayin'.

P.S. The punks didn't give Walter the ball.

2. From Andrea Kaspryk:

The American Alliance Football league may be a good place to possibly find a good, reliable kicker.
