    My only hope is that someone takes over Mike Martz's body and decides that running the ball is an effective method of playing professional football and the same ’Skins run defense from Sunday night shows up. Ultimately, while I think Washington will win, it has a habit of playing up or down to the competition and making every game close. So I hold out hope the Bears can make it close and maybe get lucky at home. Hell, they'd probably be better off going 3-and-out most times so Hester can get as many touches as possible.

    As long as ghosts are playing LT and RT, and Martz keeps calling for empty-backfield, zero-tight end, seven-step drops on 3rd-and-10 from the outer extremities of field goal distance with the Bears trailing 16-13 in the third quarter having already allowed five sacks.

    aka "being committed to the run," as Lovie calls it.

    I'm impressed someone remembered Bob Avellini.

    Bob Avellini was better than half the guys who started last week.

    Probably still is.

    It's a fierce debate -- divided into Vince Evans, Mike Phipps and Bob Avellini camps -- but my vote goes to Avellini as the best Bears QB of the Neill Armstrong era.

    What about some love for other great No. 7s: Ron Jaworksi, Bert Jones, Dan Pastorini, John Elway?

    I think Bob Avellini still hangs out at Faces on Rush St, even though it's been closed for 20 years.
