On this Columbus Day:

The Bears discovered the Stafford, the Johnson and the Ndamukong Suh.

And now:

They're 3 games behind the undefeated Lions and Packers -- actually 4 if you count the tiebreakers.

Ugh.

Not so sure:

After the game, Lovie Smith said the Bears are a better team than they showed Monday night.

They better be or it's going to be a brutal three months.

It's official:

Worst. First. Quarter. Ever.

Question:

How tough is Jay Cutler?

Let's ask Jon Gruden:

"Without Jay Cutler, this score is probably 42-0."

The good news:

At least there weren't too many penalties and the game had a nice, easy flow to it.

Clearer picture:

Now I understand why the Patriots released Brandon Meriweather.

He's No. 1:

That would be Megatron or Calvin Johnson or whatever you want to call the Lions' amazing receiver.

He's not No. 1:

Devin Hester.

Not even close.

Let us not speak ... :

Of the Megatron juice segment at the start of the ESPN telecast ever again.

Uh oh:

Earlier this week, Bears linebacker Lance Briggs called this game a must win.

They lost.

So what does that mean?

Can't be good.
