The Bears have another chance to showcase their dominating defense for a national audience this Monday night.
I think anyone interested in football expects to see a serious smackdown against the lowly Arizona Cardinals. Last week the Chicago ‘D’ made a decent Buffalo team look like amateurs. The final score, 40 – 7, while impressive, doesn’t even sum up how lopsided this game was.
Arizona is no where near where the Bills in the talent department. They’ll have a rookie quarterback, Matt Leinart, under center; an offensive line that couldn’t stop a runny nose; and their best reciever, Fitzgerald is out with an injury. This may be the worst Monday Night Football game in history. I’m going to savor every minute of it.
That said, I’m still not on board with this whole 19-0 season that many analysts, including Joe Theisman, are predicting for the Monsters of the Midway. A 5-0 start is good, but there’s a lot of football to be played. To call Grossman, our sudden messiah of a quarterback, injury prone is an understatement. If he gets hurt, the Bears could be in deep ****. Plus, now that they’ve been at the top of the power rankings for the past two weeks, teams are going to be gunning for them. I still remember when Jim McMahon, our former messiah quarterback, got body slammed in Green Bay and ended the Superbowl repeat.
The phrase for true Bears fans is “cautious optimism.” We’ll take it while we can get it, but we know that sports rarely work out in our favor.
