The new Bears are kind of lame. The 1985 Bears had the Super Bowl shuffle? The 2006 Bears have T-Shirt. “We won our first seven games and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.” Actually the shirts, sold on Sixteenstraight.com, allow fans to document all of the juggernauts the Bears have run off the field. You know, Green Bay, Detroit, Buffalo, Arizona and San Francisco among others. Lame. Granted, the Bears didn’t commission this shirt, but still.
If this year's Bears squad wants to be cool, they should film their own video and channel the spirit of Walter Payton, who could again appear in the video as hologram. That would be cool. The T-shirt is not.
But if you want to look at the real difference between this current collection of Bears and the 1985 Bears, just check out the jazz hands on Willie Gault and the entire team. Nobody can beat a team sporting jazz hands like that. Nobody.
