Yes, the Bears beat the (beat-up) Minnesota Vikings on Monday night. No, they aren't suddenly a good team.

Yes, they scored (a not-whopping) 20 points with two actual touchdowns with Jay Cutler, who threw for one of them, back. No, Cutler isn't suddenly a great quarterback.

Yes, Connor Barth was 2-for-2 on field goal attempts. No, that doesn't mean he is no longer one of the worst kickers in the league.

Yes, Jordan Howard rushed for 153 yards on 26 carries. No, it's not news that he's better than Jeremy Langford and has been since training camp.

Yes, Cutler avoided throwing an interception. No, that doesn't mean Cutler's no longer a turnover machine. There's this new thing out called "learning" - do it!

After all, Sam Bradford's 23-of-37 for 227 yards and a TD (without an INT) was virtually identical to Cutler's 20-of-31 for 252 yards.

The difference in this game was Howard, who ripped of a 68-yard run.

And the Vikings, who started the season 5-0 despite losing Teddy Bridgewater and Adrian Peterson for the season and a slew of other starters for the short term, are a sorry lot right now.

Just sayin', the Bears still look beatable to every remaining team on their schedule.


You go first.
