SHOW NOTES

* 328.

* Embodiment of a season.

* Dickerson, ESPN: "The Bears' formula for 'winning ugly' finally failed them against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

"For the third time in 2020, the Bears erased a double-digit, fourth-quarter deficit and were in position to win another game they had no business winning.

"Bears kicker Cairo Santos' valiant, 51-yard field goal - Santos went 3-of-3 on the day - sent the game to overtime. But Chicago's offense - the bane of Bears fans' existence - just proved too ugly to overcome as New Orleans left Soldier Field with a 26-23 victory."

* Haugh, The Score: "In the span of one week, two straight losses to playoff-caliber opponents provided a reality check for the Bears. The Rams made them look physically soft. The Saints exposed coach Matt Nagy's team as mentally weak."

* Paging Chuck Pagano:

* Lazerus, The Athletic: Confused And Confounding, Bears Offer Little Reason For Hope After Saints Loss.

* Hub Arkush, Shaw Media: Saints Game Is One Bears Deserved To Win.

* Rhodes: "You can't run the read-option with someone who can't read."

1:00:23: Tony La Russia.

* Coffman: "Dueling columns in the Tribune and they're both crap."

* Gonzales: Tony La Russa's Wisdom And Passion Overshadows His Age, Making Him The Perfect Leader For The White Sox.

* Sullivan: Tony La Russa Is The Manager Of The White Sox. Deal With It.

Corrective:

* Collier: Tony La Russa Is The Wrong Fit For This White Sox Team.

* Rhodes: "The epitome of the old boys network."

1:06:11: Red Stars.

1:07:06: Men In Red.
