  • What a way to kick off Thursday Night Football!

    On paper the Chicago Bears vs. San Francisco 49ers doesn't seem like much of a game. Neither team is near the top of their conference, nor do they have a big, household name. Sure, Jay Cutler is one of the most buzzed about QBs in the league, but nowhere near Tony Romo, Brett Favre, Peyton Manning or Tom Brady.

    Yet, the people who scheduled these Thursday night contests knew what they were doing because we got a great clash between two team who are known for their defense. This year, said defense has been criticized for both squads, but they showed up tonight. The Chicago Bears let Jay Cutler throw 4 picks and were only down by 4, before he threw the final nail in the coffin 5th pick. The game was exciting on the ground for the dazzling work of Frank Gore and Matt Forte, both men who also have been faced with criticism, but proved their doubters wrong tonight.

    The 49ers and Bears may not make the playoffs, but this was still a fun game to watch. Often times the teams you least expect it from can put on the greatest show. That's why I'll be tuning into the Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders on Sunday (okay, I might check out Bengals/Steelers too).moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

    • (on Chicago Quarterback Jay Cutler)
      San Francisco Safety Mark Roman: I wouldn't say he was trying to force the issue. He was trying to make plays at a time when they needed a play to be made. We knew the ball was going to be in the air and we knew if we would be sound in our coverages we'd have opportunities.
      Chicago Defensive End Alex Brown: Everybody has a bad day at work, that's just it. We have to be there to have his back and we do.

    • Chicago Quarterback Jay Cutler: It was tough. I have to apologize to the defense. I think the offense as a whole has to apologize. They played a great game and kept us in there even through all the turnovers.
      Chicago Quarterback Jay Cutler: I've played Thursday games before and been successful. It didn't affect us. We saw everything coming. They didn't have any surprises for us. We just didn't execute.
