I don’t know if I’ll be able to muster up a Monday morning blog post after this one.
This is my 30th season of being a Chicago Bears fan. Anyone that has a blog and has a realistic outlook on things, not a glass fully-full outlook all the time has the potential to get ripped on bigtime. And I’ve been ripped on for being a bit skeptical at times.
This is why it’s had to not be skeptical. The Bears look like they’ve finally found a longterm quarterback in Kyle Orton, who had outplayed all the pundits in 2008. Orton was durable, never missing a game to injury in four seasons, and looked like he had grown tremendously this season.
Then just before halftime, it looks like Orton has broken his leg or ankle in a freak mishap.
This could only happen to the Bears at the quarterback position. I’m a Cubs fan, and everyone is familiar with the Billy Goat curse. I’ll match my Bears history knowledge with anyone’s, but I have to say I have no idea what the Bears quarterback curse is all about. As of now, I am confident there has to be one.
Time to see what Rex Grossman can do in the second half, operating with a ten-point deficit against the worst team in football.
