Drop Another Dime in the Wishing Well

I am not a superstitious person. But, wow, the bald reality of the Super Bowl Losers' curse is almost enough to make me start avoiding sidewalk cracks for more than just fun. Check out this article about all the injuries the Bears have coming out of the Dallas game.

So, let's see, defensive starters lost for the season: Mike Brown and Dusty Dvoracek.

Defensive starters who will likely miss several games: Tommie Harris, Nathan Vasher.

Defensive starters who are banged up, and may not start the Detroit game: Lance Briggs, Adam Archuleta, Darwin Walker.

That's over half of the defense! I really felt good about our depth going into this season, but it's always stunning how quickly depth can turn into "Holy crap! Who's going to play our games?!"

Not to mention the two offensive line starters who are banged up. I'd be surprised to see them not start, but at this point, who knows?

And we're only three freakin' games into the season! By the time we play Minnesota, we might be a team of backups.
