OK, George, the microphone is yours.

Make it happen.

 

Make today a turning point in franchise history.

Because:

From the opener against Buffalo to the season-ender in Minnesota, this has been more than a lost season.

This has been a disaster, top to bottom.

Make us believe again.

Not all is lost, however:

Yeah, the Bears lost 13-9 to a bad Vikings team and finished the season 5-11. But there is a huge bright spot: They have the seventh pick in the draft.

Now the big question:

Who will be making that pick?

Why oh why:

Can't "News Conference Jay" be "Field Marshal Jay," too?

Bad omen:

When the first shot you see of Cutler on Sunday is him sitting alone on the bench already in full frumpy-face mode before the game, you know that can't be good.

And it wasn't.

The quote:

"An amoeba has more enthusiasm than him."

-- WSCR's Ed O'Bradovich on Cutler

Borderline amusing:

A conclusion:

There may not be anyone better at arriving one second too late to the scene of a made tackle than Shea McClellin.

It's a gift.

Was anybody else:

Waiting for Dick Stockton to refer to No. 17 as Adolfo Jefferies?

After all, this is the same guy who referred to midfield as "halftime."

Question:

Anyone else hungry for a Yumbo sandwich?

Just to be clear:

Marc Trestman is the only man in the land who thinks he'll be back next season, right?

Right?

And, finally, warm thoughts:
