Defense wins championships. The Chicago Bears became cultural icons because of their defense. It frustrates me to no end that somewhere between the Lovie Smith coaching era and the current Marc Trestman coaching era the Bears are trying to become a more offense focused team. I don’t mind having a balanced team. It just looks like all of the resources are being thrown into patching up the Bears offense. Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler is still injured, his backup Josh McCown plays like a fish out of water. Screw patching up. I’m all for demolishing and starting over. A good Bears team should have a solid foundation in their defense.

If it isn’t clear yet I believe there is a glut of blue uniforms in the NFL. There are other colors in the rainbow that deserve love, Mr. Goodell.
There is something modern and classy about the pretty much unchanged color scheme and uniform markings of the Chicago Bears. That stylized C? Classy. Three stripes? An elegant statement. Trying to translate the straight stripes to my curved eyelid? Nightmare. This was a chance for one of my rarely used liner tools to shine. I found Sonia Kashuk’s Large Angled Liner Brush just a bit too awkward for it’s intended function. But today it put down orange and white lines like no one’s business. Even when I had to do second or third layers of color it didn’t transfer any color. If you don’t have a nifty oversized liner brush, just take your time dotting color down your eyelid.
