CHICAGO | There are two stories taking shape this Bears season that won't cause coach Lovie Smith to lose any sleep, though he may keep one eye open.

CHICAGO | After mid-season home losses to Seattle and Washington by a combined six points, the Bears defense was ready to file for divorce against a lifeless offense, charging emotional duress.
CHICAGO | You've seen this scenario played out hundreds of times in sports at all levels and you absolutely love it as a fan.
CHICAGO | If you walk up to a bank teller and do this, it's called robbery.
