Sun is in the sky oh why oh why would I want to be anywhere else?

There's only one bad note from Sunday's heroic victory over Green Bay, Darwin Walker will be out this Sunday. This is bad in the sense that the Bears are without Walker, but good in that he was the only player hurt Sunday, a season best, and good that they're playing a worthless QB, so it's a perfect opportunity to get Adams time against a solid running attack and Idonije and Garay more full-speed reps.
I hope all the Bear's players are feeling as good about this week as I am right now. A win this week makes them favorite to win the division for the third year running. The offense looks at least as good as the old Shoopfense, with potential to climb even higher. And the Defense is possibly on the mend. All in all, today's freezing, windy day was a little more sunny than last week's 80 and blue skied Tuesday.
David Haugh is now leading the "take it easy on Rex" club. What!? Since when did Haugh ever stick up for a player without a minor speech impediment? Even when he's doing something right he's a jackass. Also, he doesn't miss another chance to take an unwarranted shot at Benson. Talk about piling-on! Benson just ran 25 carries into an unblocked wall and still managed a TD. Maybe a little appreciation would be nice.
Hough's a step above ESPN though, maybe they should hire him, that'd be great! Today's page is last year's week 6 or whatever page, Good Romo or Bad Rex? Except why is it admirable to turn the ball over six times for Dallas and deserving of benching in Chicago. Rex never had a chance, and I still think he's one of the best 12 QB's in the NFL. This break will be good for him, but I don't know if he'll ever be good in Chicago again. Secretly, I hope he gets one more chance and he plays like he can, cause the Bears were awesome in September last year.
Also, Green Bay is number 5 in the power rankings! Seriously, 5!? I hate ESPN.
