You're only NOW figuring that out?!?
When the season started, people talked about all the deficiencies the Bears had. But then they hit the soft part of the schedule and started winning. And people started saying they had a shot at the playoffs.
I would point out mistakes and such and was told, "Hey, a win's a win!"
I hate that. Better lucky than good. In other words, it's okay to be merely adequate instead of actually good enough and dominant. Like the fates will help you win just because you should, not because you know what the hell you're doing.
The Bears are the same team they were at the start of the season. Stupid play calling, a defensive line that acts more like ushers than blockers, and a coach who couldn't motivate a hard on in a whorehouse. It's just that, while the team was winning, people could ignore it. Now that the Bears are almost mathematically eliminated from contention, people are upset.
Men like to criticize women for the princess fantasy. Tell me what's so different between that and the Cinderella fantasies of pro sports.
