That's because the Bears never get proper recognition from the national public eye. Makes no difference to me though. Who cares how many people are excited? Hype doesn't win SBs

So many guys were injured that it looked nothing like the defense that played in the beginning of the season. As for the second comment, their run game that was 'non existent' last year was due to the fact that they lost their top back to concussions and lost their top draft pick to an injury before the first game. By the end of the season, Kevin Smith and Maurice Morris were the only options, and even Kevin Smith got hurt. So unless you are assuming that both Best and Leshoure will get hurt again, their run game will be far from non existent.


lions run game was non existent for 90% of the year and the defense has been garbage for the last 2 years. Good pass rush doesn't compensate for mediocre run defense and mediocre secondary


Are you really claiming that the lions run game is anywhere near as good as Forte/Bush or that the lions defense is anywhere near as good as the Bears defense that has ranked in the top 5/top 10 for a good portion of the last decade?


Bears are a 12/13 win team, Lions are a 10-11 win team

You are a fvcking idiot. The Lions run game was non existent for 90% of the year because they lost their top two backs. When the Bears lost Forte, their run game was even more non existent than the Lions.

You are right in saying that the run d wasn't great, but with an additional year to work together, it will improve.

And please, point out exactly where I said that the Lions run game is as good as Forte/Bush.

As for the last statement. You are saying that a young team with a 10 win season last year has no room to improve their record?

I don't think anyone is excited about any team yet. We're still a ways away from the season and everyone is focused on the draft. Once we get closer to the start of the season I'm sure the Bears will be discussed as potential contenders.

Oh, and Cutler has diabetes so you lost the argument from the start.

Chicago is a huge market yet besides the primetime games no one talks about the Bears like they do the Pats, Giants, Jets, Cowboys, Steelers, or even your Eagles.

Is there any problem with that? I mean, sure there are teams that get talked about way more than they should, even when they suck, but that's just how the media works. I feel like as a fan, it doesn't matter if the media doesn't give my team enough credit, if the team is winning, then that's all that matters.

That Cardinals game was great so don't hate on that one. That team was on fire in the playoffs.

But guess what? Nobody cares about who you played after you win that ring.

And sorry I just couldn't resist the low blow lol.
