(ESPN tried to block embed codes; BWHAHAHAH, you can't stop me! I'm a generation y-er! I'll just record your video Blair Witch style on my Android and load it to youtube. Now if I could only figure out how to make a phone call with this thing I'd be set...)
Preach Chuck! Preach! I mean talk about a walk off shot. Cutler gets sacked 7 times. Throws 4 picks. And then Woodson drops a facial on him in the post game interview. Just classic. And it couldn't have happened to a better guy either. Chirping all week about how the Packer's corners can't shut down their big wide receivers. Talking about how the Bears were set to take control of the division. Running his mouth like he can't wait to read the Strange Brew recap of how the Packers dug themselves an 0-2 hole in what will undoubtedly be a hilarious piece of prose chalk full of perfectly crafted yet delightfully obscure pop culture references. Well nothing will shut you up quicker than putting together a performance that garnered a the comparison of Jay being a 'crappier version of Brett Favre' from one fan sitting next to me. You've been at the helm for three seasons now Jay, and Erik Kramer is still the best quarterback to put on a Bears uniform in the last two decades.
As far as the game itself this was obviously a huge win. Offense still seems to be buffering but Clay Matthews is putting together performances that Tecmo Bowl Lawrence Taylor would tip his cap to. 6 sacks in two games and rookies like Daniels and Worthy appear to be getting more comfortable. Looks like the ThunderDom is getting warmed up again!
And how about Ginger Wolverine with a 158.3 quarterback rating! Like read this sentence: Tim Masthay with a 27 yard touchdown pass to Tom Crabtree*. What were the odds on my typing that sentence in a Packer blog this season and it being true? I think standard-def has a better shot of making a comeback than witnessing our punter connect with our 4th string tight end for a touchdown pass. And it happened on 4th and 26! Now normally just the mention of that down and distance prior to last night induced Chris Conley My Wish segment type uncontrollable sobbing among even the strongest Packer fans. But now? Uncontrollable sobbing followed by a wry smile followed by more uncontrollable sobbing. Big difference.
*Aaron Rodgers fantasy owners: fml. (mom don't look up what 'fml' means)
PS: Memo to the Packers: Let's try not to make a Milwaukee ticket game also a Bear game also during a school night. I-43 was bumper to bumper all the way back. Looked like that 'people will come' scene at the end of Field of Dreams.
Double PS: Rachel Nicols reminds me of that girl in Seinfeld that looks good in some light and hideous in other light. You never know what you're going to get.
