Caleb Hanie, this is your cue, this is your mission--if you choose to accept it. With the Bears entering Sunday's game on a five-game winning streak and fans thinking playoffs, you can save the season filling in for injured quarterback Jay Cutler. All you have to do is win a three or four games, and there will be football in January in Chicago. Then, of course, Cutler likely will be back to bask in the playoff spotlight. But, we'll cross that bridge when we get to it. First things first.

When the Bears take the field Sunday against St. Louis, Josh McCown will be the starting quarterback for the third time in four games. The Bears are 2-0 in his starts this year and likely would have defeated Detroit on Nov. 10 had McCown played instead of a still-injured Jay Cutler. But before McCown's success leads to the inevitable clamoring from Bears fans and pundits suggesting that McCown retain the starting job ahead of a healthy Cutler, let's remind ourselves that we have a habit of overreacting to backups' success.

Each week before the Bears game, RedEye's sports crew gets straight to the point. Here's how they see Sunday's matchup.   Chris Sosa, @sayitissosa Bears 30, Oakland 23 Have you seen the Raiders defense? The Bears will feast.   Georgia Garvey, @gcgarvey Oakland 24, Bears 9 Caleb Hanie's no Jay Cutler. I say Robbie Gould scores the only Bears points.   Elliott Serrano, @geektome Oakland 13, Bears 10 Hanie Mania will have to wait a week to get started.

Daylight saving time ended this weekend, which leaves us bracing for four months of early sunsets. The Bears are also entering their own traditional period of darkness, which this year involves a groin injury to Jay Cutler and a still-aging and still-injured defense that despite a bye week is still old and still hurt. We understand that periods of bone-deep malaise are a part of any Bears season. Last year gave us the Jason Campbell Monday night game in San Francisco, when a porous Bears offensive line coughed up five and a half sacks to an out-of-his-mind Aldon Smith, and as a result the...

Christmas night is going to suck. I don't care if the Bulls beat the Lakers by 30 that afternoon. It doesn't matter if Santa comes down your chimney with Charlize Theron and a PlayStation 4. There's a nationally televised Bears-Packers game that evening, and Chicago will be starting a quarterback that's either 1) Caleb Hanie or 2) a guy bad enough to still be listed behind Caleb Hanie on the depth chart as I write this. But we'll watch. It's Bears-Packers. Most of us will have the next day off, and technically the Bears will have playoff life left.

Welcome to Blackout Wednesday, sports fans. The day we all return to our hometown roots, drink ourselves into oblivion and wake up Thanksgiving morning with no recollection of what happened the night before. Well, at least that's what I do. While you're trying to piece together the events of the night before as you choke down dry turkey and stuffing, count your blessings if your alcohol-fueled celebration completely erased these terrible Chicago sports events from your memory.

We're poised to learn a lot about the guy pulling the strings for the Bears. I'm not talking about Caleb Hanie and his mediocre quarterbacking skills. (He's a backup for a reason, people. A better-than-average backup capable of winning a few games, but a backup nonetheless.) No, I'm talking about Jerry Angelo. With Jay Cutler out, the home stretch of this season will be the general manager's saving grace or his last hurrah. A 7-4 record in a tepid NFC should be enough of a head start for a team with enough talent to make the playoffs.

The phone rings in Brett Favre's Mississippi home. "Hello? Hello? Bears?" Favre answers, startled. "Hi, um, is this Brett?" Bears general manager Jerry Angelo asks. "Yeah, yeah, this is Brett Favre. " "Sorry, did I wake you up?" "I guess I must have just dozed off. I'd been staying up staring at the phone for the last 48 hours, but luckily I fell asleep with the phone in my hand," Favre says. "Sorry, I can call back later. " "No! I mean, that won't be necessary.

Abracadabra, the Bears are 3-0. If the season ended today, the Bears would be in a three-way tie with New Orleans and Seattle for home-field advantage in the NFC. Congratulations. Of course, NFL seasons don't typically end after three weeks. And it's very difficult to split a home field three ways. Still, Bears fans should be cautiously optimistic. This is a team that has demonstrated, three times, a technical ability to win a football game against another football team. Buuuuuut.

Other than gambling and rooting against Green Bay, the NFL playoffs won't be very pleasurable for Bears fans. Watching the Niners' pedestrian offense or the .500 Broncos hosting a playoff game will conjure up serious cases of the "what ifs. " Here's hoping as George McCaskey slumps into his favorite recliner and fires up his 112-inch screen, the new chairman doesn't make moves for the sake of making moves. Don't clean house, George. Not yet. Wiping the slate clean on Bears management and coaches won't make for a better football team in 2012.

Sorry, but even if the Bears still are technically in the playoff hunt, it's time to start thinking about 2012. Sunday's 38-14 loss to Seattle at Soldier Field proved that this team, missing quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte, has played its best football of the season. "A total disappointment," coach Lovie Smith said afterward. "We had five turnovers. You can't win with five turnovers, simple as that. We never got anything going with our running game ... it's tough when you're in that position.

Merry Christmas, Bears fans. It's over. For all you Cutler haters out there, now you know. He's the best we got, and we're nothing without him. Sorry D, it's true. Of course, this highlights another weakness: Jerry Angelo's stunning inability to evaluate offensive talent. Thanks for Caleb Hanie, Jerry. Reminds me of the year you stuck us with Jonathan Quinn and Craig Krenzel. No one scours the earth harder to find more duds at quarterback than this guy. Jerry, humor me. Donovan McNabb.

I'm trying hard to find a way to feel good about Sunday's Bears-Tebows game after the recent "football game loss" to Kansas City. I couldn't help but feel a sense of déjà vu, and I realized that we had indeed been here before in the Lovie Smith era. I'm not even sure The K.C. Masterpiece Game (note: nickname is ironic) ranks in the bottom five. Try to un-repress the memories of these stink bombs: The Holy Crap, I Just Watched Our Quarterback Die On TV Game 2010 at N.Y. Giants Remember this game?
