Last weekend, I finally started "Breaking Bad. " I rolled through Season 1 in two nights, and then this weekend started Season 2. But I had to stop watching during Episode 5. The show was too tense and uncomfortable, but mostly I couldn't deal with Walt's treatment of Jesse. Why is he so mean to this kid? What kind of a high school teacher repeatedly calls one of his former students "stupid"? Just unacceptable. I had similar frustrations while watching the Bears-Lions game Sunday.

For all the adrenaline and testosterone crammed into an NFL season, football players can be awfully sedate. If the Bears are at all anxious to face Detroit and quarterback nightmare Ndamukong Suh on Sunday, they don't show it. Good luck getting players to admit this game is any more important than a ho-hum tilt against lowly Jacksonville, save for the all-important standings boost a victory would mean. "There's not some, 'Oh yeah, we're playing Detroit this week; we hate Detroit,' " third-year safety Anthony Walters said.

Leave your answer in the comments box, and you might find yourself in a future issue of RedEye.    1. It's a good thing the Bears and Detroit don't play again because … 2. Who would you fine from Sunday's Bears-Lions game? 3. What chance do you give the Bears of making the playoffs now? 4. Without NBA, what happens at the United Center during the Blackhawks' road trip? 5. Illinois football players are getting shot, arrested … What's going on?

*** (out of four) Though sometimes very funny, the black-and-white “Nebraska” is a movie of worn-out people in worn-out places. Jobs are scarce; conversation is minimal. It looks like many of these faces haven't smiled, really smiled, in ages. So when Woody (Chicago native Bruce Dern) and his son, David (Will Forte in a rare dramatic role), humoring him, stop in dad's hometown on the way to pick up his million-dollar winnings from a sweepstakes mailing, it's no surprise that the folks in Hawthorne, Neb., get excited about his fortune.

The Bears and Detroit Lions love to hate each other. The last time they faced off, the Lions' Ndamukong Suh ripped off Jay Cutler's helmet, Detroit's Nate Burleson shoved Tim Jennings out of bounds and Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford grabbed D.J. Moore by the helmet and threw him to the ground. The fact these teams dislike each other is nothing new, of course, and the stakes were high enough to keep things chippy Monday. The Bears were trying to hold on to first place in the NFC North, and the Lions were attempting to revive their playoff hopes.

It came down to this. The Bears needed a win over Detroit and a Minnesota loss to Green Bay on Sunday to make the playoffs. It's likely coach Lovie Smith's job hung in the balance, too, considering his teams had just one playoff berth since the 2006 season. And as luck would have it, Sunday's games were staggered, meaning that for six-plus hours Bears fans' nerves were in overdrive. Here's how the day played out, and how fans were feeling at the time, from dejected, to doubtful, to hopeful, to elated.

No team gets Bears fans more worked up than Green Bay. Yet recently the Detroit Lions have crawled deeper beneath Chicago's skin. RedEye asked Bears fans to take stock of their emotions surrounding their NFC North rivals. 1. Describe your emotions during the week leading up to a Bears-Lions game. (For the Lions fan, flip Bears-Lions to Lions-Bears. For the Packers and Vikings fan, swap out Bears for their team.) MATT CLAPP, 29, Denver, @dabearnecess Probably 90 percent of the time in the week leading up to a Bears-Lions game, my thoughts are, "The Bears better not...

Due to interstate moves, familial allegiances or just plain preference, not every Chicagoan is a Bears fan. Full disclosure: While I like to see the Bears do well, I'm a bleed-blue N.Y. Giants fan. (And yes, I appreciate your condolences on our 0-3 start.) I know firsthand that fall Sundays can make some fans feel a bit homesick; games aren't broadcast, none of your friends care about your team and you just wish there was someone to high-five after a TD. Fortunately, a few Chicago bars, mostly clustered around sports bar-heavy Lakeview and Lincoln Park, happily pledge...
