Lester has been writing most of his life, but in 2006 his writing took a turn towards sports, and he eventually became the Official Chicago Bears Blogger of the Sporting News website. It was through that work that that he was hired as a writer and now an editor of Windy City Gridiron in 2009.
I'll get this thing kicked off... Over at Windy City Gridiron we have our 2013 season prediction article dropping tomorrow, where each of our writers predict every division winner, as well as the playoff tourney, and the Super Bowl champs.
Every one of us editors have the Chicago Bears in the playoffs, is that just our homerism coming out, or are we all being as unbiased as possible?
I don't think it's crazy that we have the Bears in the playoffs; the one singular concern I have is who's bumped or left out to make room for the Bears. It's pretty likely the 2nd place team of the West gets one, the East might get one (I have an NFC East team with the other WC spot currently, but I'm still debating over that one...), and the South has three decently-tough teams behind the Falcons but no real standout. It's arguable in a few ways.
That part's dependent on the Packers retaining the top North spot, of course.
