Five on Five: It's always sunny ...
We knew there was a silver lining to the Bears' debacle Sunday. Wait, there was, wasn't there?
1. What's the bright side of the Bears' loss to Seattle?
|Erin McElroy: We learned that Pete Carroll can still jump and run for brief intervals.|
|Jim Walsh: The Packers lost to them, too.|
|Scott Bolohan: They may not disappoint everyone in the playoffs now.|
|John Dooley: I don't have to see Pete Carroll's smug face in Chicago for at least a couple of months.|
|Angi Taylor: There's never a bright side to losing ... unless you're losing an ex's number.|
2. What would the Bears do if they didn't have Brandon Marshall catching passes?
|Erin McElroy: Same thing they do WITH him catching passes -- lose to bad road teams at home.|
|Jim Walsh: Lose more.|
|Scott Bolohan: Drugs.|
|John Dooley: Nothing, because Jay Cutler would be hooked up to a feeding tube.|
|Angi Taylor: Hire Kim Kardashian. She's good at catching balls.|
3. How did Rip Hamilton get hurt with no one around him?
|Erin McElroy: It's called no-chance-at-the-playoffs-itis.|
|Jim Walsh: Tripped on a gym bag.|
|Scott Bolohan: Ghosts.|
|John Dooley: Probably by watching too much game film of Marco Belinelli.|
|Angi Taylor: He was trying to stop the 76ers' no-huddle offense.|
4. Now that Northern Illinois is going to the Orange Bowl ...
|Erin McElroy: ... the Orange Bowl organizers are having a meltdown and asking, "Um, do they travel well?"|
|Jim Walsh: ... you know what? Good for NIU. Go Huskies!|
|Scott Bolohan: ... even oranges can't wait for a playoff system.|
|John Dooley: ... I can turn my TV off after the Rose Bowl.|
|Angi Taylor: ... this whole Mayan thing might be right.|
5. Mark Sanchez is benched. Tim Tebow's hurt. How can the N.Y. Jets get worse?
|Erin McElroy: If one of their players said he knew guys used Viagra as a PED! Haha ... wait ...|
|Jim Walsh: Two words: blindfold helmets.|
|Scott Bolohan: Tim Tebow could get healthy.|
|John Dooley: Tim Tebow could be healthy. That's how.|
|Angi Taylor: Yeah, I'm sure Rex Grossman is available to throw interceptions for them if they'd like!|
