We've got a 3-0 football team to celebrate, fall in love with and despair over, but before that, a word of thanks to Sports Illustrated. Thank you for ruining the entire Blackhawks season by A) putting them on the cover and B) anointing them as repeat champions. Crowning them, as Dennis Green would say. Quick note to youngsters: Sports Illustrated is a "print publication" that still comes out once a week. However, since the advent of the Internet, yours truly hasn't spent a dime on that thing, opting for the freebie articles online!

Just before the Bears' Week 1 victory over Cincinnati began, the NFL Network's pregame show ran a package featuring clips of all six brand-new rookie NFL head coaches. The montage featured your typical yawps and bellows from eager, young coaches looking to fire up their players. From five of the six newbie coaches, anyway. When Marc Trestman spoke, he spoke calmly and used words with three syllables. Sometimes four! During pre-practice warmups, Lance Briggs walked up to Trestman and said, "Got a question for ya. Do you EVER take your hat off?"

For the past decade, the Bears were the team with great defense and special teams and juuuust enough offense to be competitive. This combo resulted in a couple of close calls, but no Super Bowl wins. The recipe for NFL success changed, and we've bemoaned that fact on a yearly basis. We've bemoaned an offensive line that's given up 50 sacks per season for the past three. And Jay Cutler unfairly has taken much of the blame for the Bears' failures. Then Phil Emery became general manager.

A quick list of all the wacky crap that transpired in the Bears' 31-30 win over Minnesota: 1. Minnesota's Cordarrelle Patterson returned the game's opening kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown. 2. Devin Hester returned the ensuing kickoff 76 yards, en route to a Bears franchise record 249 kick return yards. 3. Martellus Bennett scored two touchdowns, giving him as many for the season (three) as all Bears tight ends had all last year. 4. Jay Cutler was sacked only once, the first time as a Bear he's been sacked fewer than four times in a season's first two games.

Brian Urlacher's playing career is over, but he's still dishing out hits. Since becoming an analyst for Fox Sports 1, the legendary Bears linebacker has stirred the pot on faking injuries, why he hates some of the NFL rules changes and how Jay Cutler gave him the brush-off. He should have had interesting things to say after the Bears rallied to top Minnesota 31-30 on Sunday in a wild shootout at Soldier Field. Jay Cutler threw two interceptions and fumbled once. But he also fired three touchdown passes, including a 16-yarder to Martellus Bennett--aka the "Black Unicorn"--with 16 seconds left to seal the comeback win. “That's two weeks in a row where communication between me and Cutty showed up in the red zone,” Bennett said.

Welcome to the new age, Bears fans. The previous regime was all right; it's not as if Lovie Smith's 10-6 record in 2012 was a disaster. But when it's Super Bowl or bust, you need a nuclear-powered offense or defense - or both - to carry you to NFL glory.  Enter new coach Marc Trestman, a reputed offensive mastermind, along with high expectations. And no Brian Urlacher to anchor the defense. One game into Trestman's run in Chicago and the team looks pretty good. Good enough to beat Cincinnati 24-21, anyway, after they forced three turnovers and quarterback Jay Cutler turned threw for 172 of his 242 yards in the second half.

The preseason is over and we can finally get down to the serious business of worrying. I'm only worried about Brandon Marshall right now. I feel like the diva in him took one year off and is ready to come back with a much stronger year. Which is sad because that coincides with a much more "balanced" attack where Jay Cutler is supposed to "spread the wealth. " Uh oh, the diva may not like it! Off he goes with an excused absence. We'll see. The bright side is Cutler has some options.

Bears coach Marc Trestman has spoken highly of quarterback Jay Cutler since taking over the team. Some of the good things Trestman has said: "He's a bright football guy," "He's great to work with" and "Jay understands this offense. " My question is, does he really understand it? While Cutler has said time and again that everyone on the team has "bought into" Trestman's offense, one can question if he is an exception. For example, in the second preseason game, against San Diego, all five of Cutler's passes were intended for Brandon Marshall.

Because preseason NFL football barely resembles the real thing most of the time, it can be tough to determine how much stock to put into what you're seeing. That goes double for the Bears' warm-up Thursday against San Diego at Soldier Field, which featured Manti Te'o's return to the Chicago area. We're to help you sort out what resembles a hoax and what deserves your concern.   Manti Te'o's injury How real: 4 out of 5 The former Notre Dame linebacker was in a walking boot and sidelined for Thursday's game.

Please join me as we bow our heads. We are acknowledging the close of the J'Marcus Webb era in Chicago. Painfully inadequate, he made up for it by being a doofus off the field as well. Can't play left tackle, can't hide him at right tackle, we're out of options. My favorite moment was when Jay Cutler bumped him a year ago. Two reactions: 1) Cutler is a jerk 2) Webb is truly awful. Whom do you hate more? I'll let you decide, but I'd kill to be in the film room when coach Marc Trestman first saw film of him. "Um, you guys tried to make a starter out of this guy?"
