Last week, EA Sports got Bears fans in a tizzy by predicting the Bears would finish 12-4 in the regular season and earn the No. 1 seed in the NFC. RedEye then upped the ante by using "Madden NFL 13" to simulate the regular season and playoffs. If real life reflects video games, this season will play out like an eerie flashback to 2010 - complete with an agonizing NFC championship loss to the hated Packers. Here's the blow-by-blow: Game 1: Bears 40, Indianapolis 38 The Colts and new franchise QB Andrew Luck almost has enough luck to spoil the Bears' home opener, but Jay...

There's an old saying that goes something like this: "You can't keep a good dog down. " Actually, that's a lie. But that's what it should be. Do not adjust your glasses or your monitor, folks, what you are seeing is indeed real. I'm back. After a couple of months shooting films in Hollywood, I have returned to Chicago and my RedEye roots.

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.

Giants Remember this game?

Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers were top-five picks in almost every fantasy draft. If you took one of these three, you are automatically thinking championship. But after two weeks they've looked nothing like fantasy studs. Will this trio rebound, or did you draft fool's gold? Tom Brady The master of style has compiled 552 yards passing, three touchdowns and an interception, though the Patriots have other issues.

As Phil Emery prepares for his second Bears draft, he would be wise to study his predecessor Jerry Angelo. The Bears will pick in the first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth rounds of the 2013 draft. RedEye takes a look at Angelo's best and worst from those rounds. FIRST ROUND BEST - Tommie Harris, defensive tackle, 2004 WORST - Michael Haynes, defensive end, 2003 Angelo's poor track record in the first round is well-documented, and we could debate his best and worst picks till the cows come home.
