Super Bowl Buzz Kill: Bears

Your team isn't going to the Super Bowl, so why have any optimism? The Hater Nation brings you back to reality with the Super Bowl Buzz Kill. Why your team won't win the Super Bowl:

The Chicago Bears

That picture seems abundantly appropriate considering the Bears prospects, though there was an awful lot of consideration given to this photo.

The Bears are a slam-dunk here, considering the lack of success that Super Bowl runners up have had in recent years. Sure, Seattle won the NFC West last year, but the Seahawks should have won the Super Bowl, while the fraudulent champion given Super Bowl 40, the Steelers, choked like the losers they are.

The Bears are in a world of hurt this season, and it goes far beyond quarterback Rex Grossman. Or the drunk backing him up. The Bears are bent out of shape over the current LaDainian Tomlinson commercial, where the record-breaking back makes short work of a bunch of actors in Bears kits. Brian Urlacher was especially irked, as reported here in the Chicago Tribune.

"How did we do the last time we played them?" Urlacher said. "How did he do that game? Look at the stats and see how he did."

Urlacher has a point. Tomlinson had 16 rushes for 61 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' 20-7 victory over the Chargers on Nov. 2, 2003.

Yeah, if you are looking to a freaking commercial for motivation, you have bigger problems. Like trading away your best running back (Thomas Jones) for a guy who has been a chronic under achiever (Ced Benson). Much like the Mike Ditka era, where this team pissed away talent like it was a 12-pack of Ye Olde Style, the Bears are destined for another loosing season.

But damn, you still have JLH.

You chose the wrong picture.

It's just Old Style. There's no Ye.

There's no Style in it either, but that didn't keep me from trying to drown in it back in college.

I opted for the more highbrow, Special Export. The can even showed classic wooden sailing vessels "exporting" it. Apparently there used to be great oceans separating La Crosse from Wausau.
