Because nobody likes "that guy".
But that's me. I'm that guy.
The guy who told you so.
I wrote in March we would check back in December. I guess it's time to check back.
I knew the Bears would not be good this year. They only made me doubt it one time.
That one time was the opening drive of the season. From there they just confirmed what we all knew back on March.
They weren't good.
But I not only said they wouldn't be good. I wrote they would be unwatchable.
Unwatchable is exactly what this team was.
It was a completely lost season. I'd rather there had been a strike with replacement players than to have to watch this crap we were subjected to.
So I didn't watch much. Which is the definition of unwatchable.
QB. Defense. BAD. BAD.
I even chastised the team at that time for signing Cutler to that big long contract in that post.
I never wanted to be this right.
I've lived through a lot of cruddy teams they've put on the field, but never a team I didn't like.
Even though a team is bad, that doesn't necessarily mean you don't root for them. This team was unlikable (mostly stemming from its QB, but there were others) and unwatchable. Meaning you couldn't even root for them.
I just hope they blow up everything and start over.
We'll find out tomorrow.
But you keep Cutler and there's going to be seismic upheaval around here.
