That being said I want to tell you that I feel as good moving forward this season as I did in the beginning. Me and Mike Ditka are the only ones, media wise, that picked the Chicago Bears to win this game, (that I know of.) Our defense finally showed up. Nice to meet you defense, I’m Robert! They forced three and outs. They let the Packers get down the field only to have to punt or be held to a field goal. Julius Peppers and Shea McClellin, (you read that right) and Corey Wootton looked great! Our run defense sucked but who cares right now. WE BEAT THE PACKERS IN LAMBEAU ON MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL!
Josh McCown played extremely well. It’s one of those Kurt Warner type stories. This guy was coaching High School football 2 years ago. Confidence, pocket presence, check downs, all of it. Chicago loves this guy right now. I wouldn’t be surprised if some fans call for him to be the new starter. The Jay Cutler haters. I am not one of them. I like having them both. When the coaching staff said they were comfortable with McCown and they weren’t keeping three quarterbacks on the roster to start the season, it sounded very Lovie-esque. Meaning, it sounded like fluff. I was not as confident as they were. Now I see why they were.
I have DVRed this game and will watch it 100 times. I may even come up with an audience participation script like “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” The last time we beat Green Bay was at Soldier field in 2010 and it was because they committed 18 penalties. At Lambeau, not since 2007. Too long, far too long. The Detroit Lions at Soldier Field this Sunday will be fun.
Today I’m in Chicago Bear heaven. I would like to send my love out to my wife, Beth Napier, who has a special way of bringing out my best. Happy Anniversary, Mama Bear (formerly Baby Girl.)
