There was a moment in the 4th quarter of the game between the Chicago Bears and the St. Louis Rams that the score was down to six points after Devin Hester, he of kickoff/punt return fame, showed why he is so dangerous and broke through tackles to get into the end zone on a punt return. Then the flags fell calling the play back on a holding call by Safety Craig Stelz.
“On the sideline, a few of us were talking,” receiver Brandon Marshall said. “This game is just so tough. National Football League, you never know. It seems like these last few years, it’s going down to the last few games, and it looks like it’s going to be the same this year.
“We had an opportunity to take advantage of what else happened in our division, but we didn’t. That just goes to show you how tough this game is.”
Penalties also killed the Bears as they were flagged 10 times for 84 yards and in the end, the Rams blew out the Bears 42-21.
The Bears still have a shot at the playoffs and look to right the ship against the Minnesota Vikings December 1st. Great seats and tickets are still available!
The rumors are already beginning even as Bears QB Jay Cutler discovers the extent of his injury that head coach Mark Trestman may already be looking for a replacement more suited to run his offense according to NFL Media columnist Michael Silver.
“Think about it — he (Trestman) had his greatest success with Rich Gannon, who was smart and moved well but wasn’t anybody’s idea of a big thrower,” one source familiar with the Bears’ situation told Silver. “If you’re him, do you want to spend $20 million a year on Cutler, who might not be the best fit, or do you want to find someone you can mold who’s efficient? And if you think about how deep this (next) draft class might be, he can identify his guy and get him relatively cheap for the next few years.”
The Bears take on the Green Bay Packers next and great seats and tickets are still available.
Cutler having great season in contract year
Jay Cutler will come into Washington sporting 4-2 record and a 12/6 touchdown to interception ratio along with almost 1700 yards. Welcome to Week 7 of the NFL. Cutler was just ranked the #9 Quarterback in the NFL by NFL “Around The League” Editor Gregg Rosenthal. The same list that has New England QB Tom Brady ranked 11th.
Washington is coming off an embarrassing loss to the Dallas Cowboys and are looking to get back on track if they can ever get past their current “name controversy.”
I went on record on the show saying that they should change their name,” Former Head Coach Tony Dungy said recently. “I don’t think you sit up there and say ‘I’m not offended by something, so it shouldn’t offend anybody else’. You know, I would look at it and say, ‘Hey, we may be offending someone. There’s no need to in this day and age to offend anyone.’
