Chicago is known as "The City of Broad Shoulders."

The Chicago Bears, for many years, have been known as "The Monsters of the Midway."

Defensive prowess is a given to this franchise.

When you think of the Chicago Bears playing defense, the names Butkus, Singletary, Atkins, Urlacher, Dent and Hampton quickly come to mind.

Gimme 10 minutes and I'll rattle off for you another 100 former Bear defensive players who wore the uniform--and played--with pride. Tough? These guys ate dirt for breakfast and mud for lunch.

On Sunday night, the Bears defense, if you'll allow use of the word "defense," played like a bunch of marshmallows. Had Philly, when it had the ball, allowed the Bears to play two-handed touch, the Eagles still would have scored 35 points.

The whole thing was sickening.

But the NFL is a crazy league. The Bears will rebound and beat the Pack this Sunday.
