The Devistator Returns
It's always fun to see an ex-Bear get faced. But the sheer joy at seeing an asswipe like Todd Sauerbrun (or Sauer-BUM from the old Rehling-Bears listserve) get faced is just too good to be true.
I wonder how many people remember him as a miserable failure as a 2nd round draft pick of Dave Wannstedt? Even fewer probably remember Todd giving an accidental lawn job to a house near the old Halas Hall and then flipping off some young kids at that house for having the audacity to actually yell at him for vandalizing property.
Before the game, Todd showed the old arrogance:
"We're not going to kick away from him," Sauerbrun told The Denver Post. "We respect him and he's the best, but we have guys on our coverage teams that are paid to make big tackles."
Based on the pictures, not only did Todd's "guys" not make tackles, but Todd's chemically enhanced body only served as a jump rope for Devin Hester.
The 2007 Bears and the words "playoffs" are only distantly related. But the Devistator remains appointment television.
Greg Gumbel got in the act today when he said, on Hester's second TD, "This is unbelievable."
Not really. He's just that good.
Now, if he could only learn to run a pattern other than "fly"...
