It hasn't been hard to pinpoint what Chicago has done right the past five weeks—there wasn't much to choose from.
But on Sunday night the Bears played like they accidentally thought it was the Pro Bowl, including their barely-remembered second-round pick, a defensive lineman "doubtful" to play with a bum knee, and two safeties who know the benches at Soldier Field far better than the turf.
Even the offensive line handled the Vikings easily.
Read that last line again. Now pretend you believe it. Pretend you think that Waterloo-waiting-to-happen could actually improve when right tackle Gabe Carimi comes back.
And if you're still drinking this Kool-Aid, find out who's hot and whose stock is waiting to skyrocket for the Bears.
Because believe it or not, the best is yet to come.
