Get ready, Bears fans: Adrian Peterson is coming to town. The Monsters of the Midway have had a roller-coaster ride defending the running back - and reigning NFL MVP - called "All Day. " Here's a look at the good, the bad and the ugly. THE GOOD Nov. 14, 2010: Bears 27, Vikings 13 Peterson: 75 total yards Peterson missed the second Bears game in both 2010 and 2011, but the way he played in the first ones, he might have been better off. The Bears closed this game with a 20-3 run while holding Peterson to 51 rushing yards and stopping him on his only third-down carry.

Will this be the NFL run of the year? Tampa Bay's LeGarrette Blount reeled off a 54-yard touchdown run that you'll see all over sports highlight shows this week, not to mention every sports blog in existence. And, to be honest, it's impressive. When he hits the line of scrimmage, it looks as if Blount will be stopped, but he bounces off defenders and finds a hole. Then, as re rumbles toward the end zone, he makes no less than six other Packers players miss him. Too bad the Buccaneers couldn't beat the Packers, though, right Bears fans?

The Bears are still in first place in the NFC North. That's how an optimist would see the Bears' situation after a 42-21 loss at St. Louis on Sunday. It all kind of falls apart from there, however. Yes, Detroit lost to Tampa Bay on Sunday, so the Bears and Lions are both 6-5. But considering Detroit holds the tiebreaker by virtue of beating the Bears twice this year, it's tough to get overly excited. Besides, there were so many other reasons to think this season has gone from bad to worse.

A few weeks ago, RedEye asked the Bears what it's like to prepare for an All Pro like Detroit defensive lineman Ndamakong Suh. Bears offensive lineman Lance Louis shrugged and said, "There's a lot of All Pros in this league. " In other words, don't get too worked up over the guy you're playing this week, because you'll play somebody just as good next week. No kidding. Over the next six weeks, the Bears play five of the NFL's top seven leading rushers: Chris Johnson, Arian Foster, Frank Gore, Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch and Peterson again.

Even after 15 years of playing fantasy football, I'm still learning. I plan on fixing my mistakes next year. Hopefully you'll be a better fantasy player in 2013, too. Here's what I learned this season: One-hit wonders don't always develop into stars. Did you pick up Kevin Olgetree after he exploded for Dallas in Week 1? Did you think Brandon Myers was the next Rob Gronkowski? Were you convinced Bryce Brown, after two great weeks, was the second coming of Adrian Peterson? All these players had one or two great games, then fizzled.

Time to take a deep breath, Bears fans. Heading into the bye week, Lovie Smith's team is 4-1. That's a far cry from where it felt the Bears might be after the Packers manhandled them in Week 2. Now they have more than two weeks to heal and game-plan before a Monday night throwdown against Detroit on Oct. 22 at Soldier Field. And now that the dust has settled on the first five weeks of the season, let's see who's trending in the NFC North.   Bears (4-1) Five defensive touchdowns in the past three games.

The Bears' Week 1 win gave fans a lot to feel optimistic about. But how can we expect the remaining games to go? Thanks to a free weekend of NFL Sunday Ticket, I watched part or all of every Week 1 game. I'm not saying you should wager your hard-earned money based on this info. But you COULD. Sunday vs. Minnesota: The Bears should put 12 players "in the box" to stop Adrian Peterson. Sign a guy made of antimatter for the secondary to balance the numbers. Christian Ponder will have four turnovers.

I'm tired of hearing about how the Bulls should bring Derrick Rose back slowly to protect his long-term potential and that this is a lost season. I get it, no one wants Rose to come back too early and potentially jeopardize what should be a Hall of Fame career with the Bulls. The problem is this team is near the top of the Central Division and with Rose in the lineup, they are legitimate title contenders. Playing for the future is good in theory, assuming everything stays the same.

Do you ever have great contradictions between your head and your heart? Like you can deeply admire President Obama but be extremely troubled by certain policies from his administration, or think John Mayer is an abject tool but now you've listened to his new album around 700 times? Sometimes it feels like everything in life is that lying, cheating lover who's too sexy, too fun, too panty-melting to give up. But there's no greater contradiction than football. Football, college and pro, is irredeemably corrupt, staked through with ugly values and exploitative of...
