Bears Now Lucky As Well As Good
It may be better to be lucky than good. But it's best of all to be lucky AND good, and that's the combination the Chicago Bears have working for them right now.
The Bears, after winning their first five games by an average margin of 24 points, remained unbeaten Monday night by coming back to win in Arizona, 24-23. The Cardinals squandered a 20-3 lead in the second half and lost on a night when Bears quarterback Rex Grossman committed six turnovers, throwing four interceptions and losing two fumbles. The Bears scored two touchdowns on fumble returns and another on a punt return, and Cardinals kicker Neil Rackers missed a 41-yard field goal attempt in the final minute.
It was all too much for Cardinals Coach Dennis Green, who was practically screaming when he said of the Bears during his postgame news conference: "You want to crown them, go ahead and crown their [butts]! But they are exactly who we thought they are, and we let them off the hook!"
