What a game. For a fan, it was nice to have a game that was out of character. Unfortunately, I missed it. I was celebrating a late Christmas with my in-laws in South Bend, Indiana. All week I was assured the Bears game would be on their CBS affiliate. But little did I know, the Colts (South Bend's other favorite team) were playing the late game and the antiquated NFL rules prohibited this market from showing both a 12pm and 3pm game (because the Giants/Packers were on Fox). So I sat down to watch a Messiah Christmas concert and informercial, followed by a Motorcross season preview.
I got by with a steady dose of texts (thanks, Tommy) and game breaks during the Lions/Dolphins game. Luckily, my brother took notes for me. So I introduce my guest blogger, without a computer:
Good points, all around. Here are some random observations I took from post-game re-runs and highlights:
- Maybe I was wrong, maybe the turf is a positive home field advantage for the Bears. Yesterday, the turf was subpar, but because of the bad footing, the Jets couldn't get a pass rush going. And because there was no pass rush, Cutler just threw the ball all over the field.
