I get the sense that we’re going to be swimming upstream on this Cutler thing all season, at least from a national media point of view, so you might as well get used to it.

The Bears will face the team ranked one spot ahead of them, the sixth ranked New Orleans Saints in the Superdome this Sunday.   The Saints are the highest ranked 0-1 team on the charts on the heels of their shootout loss to the #1 ranked Green Bay Packers.

What do you think?  Are the Bears ranked appropriately?  Should they be ranked behind an 0-1 team?  Should the division rival Lions(#12) be ranked higher after a road win compared to  the 0-1 Falcons, who tumbled 5 spots to #11 after losing to the Beloved?
