Alright. So maybe it wasn’t the most entertaining game there ever was. Maybe the 1st quarter wasn’t great, and the 3rd quarter was a snoozefest, but at least we were all gifted with a Bears 1st & 40 in the 4th quarter that eventually lead to a spectacular, seemingly impossible…
But I guess the disgrace of 3rd & 40 lit a fire under Chicago’s ass and they actually started driving. I’m pretty sure the world was holding their breath, hoping that this disappointing opening night of football wouldn’t extend to OT with the first touchdown of night for the Bears.
Then it happened.
The Bears didn’t want him and didn’t want to pay him, so Adrian Amos got his money, came back to their home with their biggest rival, on the opening night of the 100th season, and handed them their first loss of the season.
All we’ve been hearing about is this Bears defense and how “monstrous” it is, and yet… the Packers defense outplayed them, even with the MULTIPLE should-have-been-interceptions that were wasted away (wayyyy too many). I thought this was supposed to be Mitch Trubisky’s MVP year! What happened??!!
THE PACKERS WENT AND GOT THEMSELVES A DEFENSE! It’s only the first game of the season, I know I know, but the idea of Aaron Rodgers playing on a team that actually has a defense is almost too much too handle. In fact, just thinking that today it WAS the defense- Za’Darius Smith, Preston Smith, Darnell Savage, Blake Martinez, and Adrian Amos – that won the game, makes me want to kiss Mike Pettine.
Now we just gotta work on that offense…
