There is no better way to go into a bye week than on a win.
It felt good to get back out there with the guys and play a lil football yesterday. When I woke up that morning I had a renewed excitement to play football. It seemed as if had been a couple of months since I last played.
Did you enjoy the game? It was very exciting. Detroit came to play, especially in the firs half. Their rookie QB came out firing to Calvin Johnson, the best young WR in the game. It took out defense a few series to make the necessary adjustments to take away that connection. Coming out in the second half the defense shut the Lions down by getting after the QB and causing a couple of key turnovers, giving the offense the ball on a very short field leading to easy score.
I seen a stat that said since Lovie became our head coach we have cause the most turnovers in the NFL in that time span. That says a lot because Lovie is always preaching to the defense to get the ball out and the do, year in and year out.
The offense benefited from a superb special team effort and turnover crated by the defense. We were able to put 48 points on the board without having 300 yards of total offense. That's what happen when the defense giv you the ball with 5 yards to go for a TD and the special teams have a TD return and cut the field in half for the offense.
How about your QB going airborne for the TD. I would rather not see him taking hits like that but that's the kind of player we have. He's going to get it done any way he can, even if it means sacrificing his body to do so. I had a front row seat for that TD. as he was getting spun around I'm thinking to myself, I hope that didn't hurt.
Nice win for the BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!
