They Are Who We Thought They Were

And we here at Brewed Sports thought that the Bears sucked. Hopefully Denny Green doesn't sue me for the title of this post.

Anyway, I suspect there is not much to be learned from this week's drubbing of the Bears, except perhaps that Nick Barnett is not that important, and that Rex Grossman is apparently just Kyle Orton with a bum ankle.

What I would like to discuss is all of the weirdness. You know, like:

The Minnesota Vikings, last week, recording two safeties against the Green Bay Packers, followed by the Wisconsin Badgers, getting two safeties this week against the Minnesota Golden Gophers. I've never seen two safeties in a game, and then it happens twice in one week in some weird parallel way.

The NFL's first ever 11-10 score happened yesterday when the Steelers beat the Chargers.

The last play of that game was incorrectly ruled dead when it should have been a TD for the Steeler defense. This allegedly led to a 64 million dollar swing in winners and losers in Vegas.

There was a frickin' tie!

Donovan McNabb did not know that NFL games could end in ties!

I need a drink.

Nick Barnett is extremely important. Look what happens when you replace him with Desmond Bishop.

Fortunately we have an excellent stand in at middle linebacker with AJ Hawk. My only worry on defense is the line. Justin, i should have been a first and fourth rounder from Cleveland, Harrel is injured again.
