Fourteen Down, Twenty-Two To Go
The Bears only made one mistake today. On their first drive on 3rd and 3 from the 25, Offensive Coordinator Ron Turner called a pass. Thomas Jones already had three rushes for 9, 9, and 7 yards on the drive. Give him the ball again.
What is written above was taken from the Webster's Dictionary web site under the heading "nitpick."
Watching today, seeing the turnovers, dominating defense, a short passing game, and a running back that ran for huge tracts of land and caught a few passes as well, and this team looked a lot like a team from 21 years ago.
What the Bears have done with last year's stinker playoff loss and this year's perfect start is make anything less than Superbowl appearance a severe disappointment.
But there's a golden opportunity here that we all should be hoping for.
As most of the national media has noticed, there is another team at 7-0. That would be the perennial team with a chicken bone in their throat, the Indianapolis Colts.
With the Superbowl in Miami this year, we football fans should be united in this wish: That both these teams reach Miami undefeated.
What could possibly be a better tasting side dish to a title than seeing the sulking faces of the increasingly creepy 1972 Dolphins see their undefeated season become an afterthought? In Miami, no less. Can you imagine the look on the faces of Nick Buonticonti, Larry Csonka, and Paul Warfield as they walked out to the 50-yard line for the coin toss?
Oh, for the sauce on the goose to be Brian Griese throwing the winning touchdown pass.
