This is the one weekend of the year I like to pause and give thanks for what we have in our lives, but that's not happening this year. It's not happening because the football gods have dealt me another blow. The second in my lifetime, in fact. Mid-1980s. The Bears were phenomenal. One hitch. You know it. The QB. Couldn't get it straight. McMahon, Tomczak, Fuller, Flutie, Harbaugh, Landry, Payton. (Yes, him! Look it up! 1984.) And now this. Again. Playoff team, everything seems to be clicking, defense and special teams kicking butt and Jay Cutler hurt … the thumb.
