Chance for redemption soon.

Our loosing streak has hit 3, and we have a oppurtunity to end it right here.Quinn(``I'm not hitting passes. Guys are there and I miss them,'' Quinn said. ``The fans are frustrated. I'm frustrated. Everybody's frustrated.'') has had a series of games which he wants to forget a.s.a.p. We lost to a weak team yesterday, which doesn't say much for us, but we have to keep our heads up high, because the next 2 games are games that could lift us up back to playing form. They are teams struggling like us, so its either make or break it in the next couple of games. Lets find the rope in the hole we've dug ourselves into and get out! GO BEARS!

We need to jump on the weak teams

After four games the Bears are tied for last place in the NFC North with the Green Bay Packers at 1-3.

The Bears' first four opponents have compiled a cumulative 9-5 record, and even though their only victory came against the 1-3 Packers, it was still significant in that Green Bay had won 18 of the previous 20 meetings.

The next four opponents, the Redskins, Buccaneers, 49ers and Giants, are a combined 4-12. If the defense plays as well against its upcoming opponents as it did in holding the Packers to 10 points and the Eagles to 19, a .500 record at the halfway point isn't out of reach.

Lately we have been playing nowhere clost to our potential, and the next couple of games we have the worse teams in the NFL. If we can get a leg up on them, we could really boost our confidence to atleast try to get back in the playoff race. We are being plagued with injuries and unless we can get out there and sort of "forget" about the injuries for about 3 hours, we won't get past the fact we are missing people.
