Gary D’Amato wrote an article this morning re Mason Crosby having to step up in the event that the game is close. Legit article – and as D’Amato points out, considering Crosby has just 1 game winning FG in 4 years as a kicker it’s about time he steps up when we need him.
But what struck me about the article was this from Darren Colledge:
“We know it’s not going to be a blowout”.
Um. Why not? Look, I’m as nervous about heading down to Soldier Field for such a huge game as any Packer player or fan. But frankly, I would not rule out a blow out for this game (in favor of the Packers). The Packers will not get blown out – but there is a very real chance that if our offense gets churning, we could overwhelm the Bears.
Perhaps Colledge was just saying what he felt he should say publicly. But I sure hope that our offense especially, has in mind the possibility of rolling like it did last week and flattening the Bears. Let’s face it, right now, there is a huge difference between our offense and the offense of the Bears. And there isn’t much difference between the 2 defenses – with the Pack probably having the edge there too. I don’t want to sound ridiculous here, but if I were a Bears fan I would be at least a little worried about getting crushed.
My official pick for this game should come by tomorrow, but I woke up this morning feeling far less nervous all of a sudden.
