CANTON, OHIO - 2027 I was telling everyone I would just get up here and say thanks, but there are too many people to mention. First, thank you to Arizona, Detroit, Oakland, Miami, Carolina, Hartford and San Francisco for not believing in me. Without you being so incredibly stupid, I never would have ended up in the greatest city in the world. Thank you to that one quarterback, Jay Butler or whatever, for always getting hurt. Without you, I would never be here. Thanks to Alshon Jeffery.

Reading what Joakim Noah says about Luol Deng, you want to wrap your arm around the Bulls center and tell him it's gonna be OK. On Wednesday, the Bulls will face Deng for the first time since he was traded to Cleveland earlier this month. "I love Luol," Noah said. "He's my brother. But when that ball goes up, he's not going to be my brother. " OK, so Noah won't go easy on his former teammate on the court. But his friendship with Deng has earned a spot among the top Chicago sports bromances.

The playoffs are here, and for many of you congratulations are in order. Now it's decision time. We know you aren't going to play Ray Rice, Trent Richardson, or RG3, but will you play Josh McCown, Rod Streater or Bobby Rainey? If you have any or all of the aforementioned, my answer is you'd better give them a shot. Here is why you should play these super sleepers in the playoffs. Josh McCown, Bears quarterback I am of the mindset that the Bears are going to start Josh McCown against Cleveland on Sunday.

Another Bears season is in the books, and all over this city we are lumbering toward consensus on what this team did and did not accomplish, what to look forward to and in what to find despair. It's January in Chicago. We don't have much else to do. I'm upbeat about these Bears. Sure, they finished the year 8-8, losing the NFC North in brutal fashion. But that was one play, and neither the 2013 Bears nor the 2013 Packers looks especially championshippy this year, so it's one play for one extra game.

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.

I am the most optimistic Chicago sports fan you'll ever read. I still hold hope that the Theocracy will break a 105-year Cubs drought, I believe Derrick Rose will lead the Bulls past Miami this spring, and I don't see any reason why the Blackhawks won't play in the Stanley Cup Final again this season. But trust me, the Bears' season is over. Sure, they'll play the games. I mean, they have to. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell would be ticked off if they went all Grambling on him. And the Bears will win a few, I'm sure.

Here's a debate that's fun, challenging and a complete waste of your time. There seem to be theories about Josh McCown's success. Some say "Hey, it's the QB. He's awesome. Doesn't make any mistakes, doesn't turn it over. " And some say it's the coach and the system. Marc Trestman is a genius, and he did this with Rich Gannon and on and on. First off, I'm grateful for both. When you've been through, oh let's see, Caleb Hanie, Todd Collins, Henry Burris or Jonathan Quinn (my God, we are survivors, aren't we?

The NFL broke a leaguewide scoring record last week, as all 32 teams combined for 859 points. And the gaudiest quarterback stat line wasn't put up by Peyton Manning, Tom Brady or Drew Brees. 34-year-old Josh McCown, the man with five other NFL teams in his rear-view mirror, totaled five touchdowns and completed 75 percent of his passes in a stadium cold enough to turn beer into slush. Some dude stole a fantasy football playoff win in your league using McCown. McCown has a 109.8 passer rating, third in the NFL. He should finish with the highest...

First off, it was the Cowboys. Secondly, it was zero degrees outside, and they are the modern poster children of the warm weather sissy team. Remember the Ice Bowl in '67? They lost that game too. Nonetheless, thank you Josh McCown. Where have you been all of our lives? Playing with all those toys like that. And so the debate rages on. McCown or Jay Cutler. If Cutler is ready, I say Cutler. But I'm in the minority around here. Certainly, Brian Urlacher disagrees with me but hey, all of the sudden he's a media star after mumbling his way around town for 13...

The Bears' record doesn't lie. When you finish 8-8, some of the stats are going to look outstanding and some are going to be so ugly you might vomit all over your screen. (Please don't, if you can help it.) Maybe the best advice RedEye can give Bears fans is to close your eyes and repeat "only seven months until training camp" in your head. Chicago Tribune contributed to this report.   77.18 percent When the Bears beat Pittsburgh to improve to 3-0, they had a 77.18 percent chance of making the playoffs, according to sportsclubstats.com.

Three Bears fans walk into a bar. Let's call them Trusty, Scaredy and Doubty: Trusty: So, Jay Cutler should start Sunday, right? Scaredy: Absolutely! Did you see that arm strength in the Cleveland game? He fits the football into windows that Josh McCown can't. No, no … that NO OTHER quarterback can! Doubty: Did you see him force throws in that same Cleveland game? Cripes, he cost the Bears 10 points on forced throws to Brandon Marshall, and simply got lucky that his lollipop of a toss to Alshon Jeffrey wasn't intercepted, either.

He doesn't have the rocket arm. Or the celebrity wife. Or even a Tumblr of him "smoking. " Josh McCown keeps his distance from all that noise. The 34-year-old Texas native's happy-to-be-here approach to his NFL career has helped Chicago embrace him as its "starting" quarterback. That, and his propensity to win games. When Jay Cutler went down with an injury, all McCown did was perform spectacularly--a far cry from, well, any other backup in Bears history. In an exclusive interview with RedEye, the Bears' backup-turned-starter-turned-backup-again dished about tuning out...

And just like that, the Bears' quarterback debate is settled. Ha, we couldn't even write that with a straight face, much less say or think it. Jay Cutler did just enough in his latest comeback from injury this season, throwing for 265 yards and three touchdowns in the Bears' 38-31 win at Cleveland on Sunday. That's the good news, combined with the fact that at 8-6, the Bears are alone in first in the NFC North, pending Detroit's clash with Baltimore on Monday night. This is the part where we point out that because the Lions own the tiebreaker, the Bears...

"It's great to see yourself make a play on the field and in a video game," the Bears star said. "I always took a lot of pride in when I played baseball or when I played basketball and stuff like that, creating different players and different teams and stuff.
