Joy to the World! I am 45 years old and I have never, ever, ever seen the Chicago Bears offense work like I saw on Monday Night Football. What a way to honor Da Coach! I should probably pick up some bratwurst and some antacids to celebrate. My wife just got back from Panama yesterday, because she is a big-time World traveler, so she crashed early. However, my boy Robbie stayed awake to watch some of this game with me. He didn’t know much of what was going on, but he knew that the Ah-go Bears were on TV, and that Daddy was very excited. He conked out on the floor dreaming of chocolate milk and playing cars.
Because of the Lions loss on Sunday, and our win, I am once again hopeful for making the playoffs. Green Bay is coming up from behind though, (hehe hehe) because of their win against the Falcons. So, we are left watching the front and back again, but I’ll take it. The Lions have at least one more loss in them, maybe two. Green Bay, I would strongly encourage you to not take any chances with the health of Aaron Rodgers, keep him out for the rest of the season.
I know our run defense is record-setting, and not in a good way, but the rest of our “D” didn’t suck, and with an offense that can perform like that, and a defense that is at least present, we can make some noise in the NFL. I’m trying to keep my composure as I have felt this way several times this season, only to be disappointed the next week.
If I had to convey what the game was like for someone who wasn’t watching, I would say that it reminded me of a Bears game in 2009 at Bengals. The difference being that we were like the Bengals in this one. It was the one where former Bear, Cedric Benson, would be playing the team that previously released him and some trash talking had ensued prior to the game. We went to Cincinnati, and they drove up and down the field scoring on each possession, with 3 and outs by the Bears peppered in between. It was our worst game of that season. We have one like that every year, one that I don’t even save on the DVR.
Well, last night we delivered one of those very same beat downs to “America’s Team.” How un-patriotic of us. The Cowboys can still take the NFC East if they win out, so please don’t cry for them, Argentina.
