- We won our first game against the Lions because of a dumb rule.
- In Week 5, we faced Carolina rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen when Cutler missed his first start as a Bear with a concussion.
- We had a bye week when we needed it most and got to play the Buffalo Bills.
- Our short week Thursday night game was against Miami who was down to the waterboy as backup QB.
- And then we got 10 days to plan for our game against the Eagles.
We also get the patriots coming off a monday night game so they will have 1 less day to practice. I just hope we don't get caught up in a trap game against the Lions on Sunday and I hope we don't miss the playoffs because of the seeding rules of the NFL. We could be 10-6 or 11-5 and lose the wildcard while an 8 and 8 team from another division goes to the playoffs.
Home for the Holidays: I always try to take the three days before Thanksgiving off if I can so that I have time to get things in order. Usually it's cleaning up my place but in recent years I use the time to work on my mom's house.
