As we enter the 2nd week of the 2008 NFL season, I'd like to take a moment to pay tribute to the Chicago Bears Defensive linemen of yesteryear (by which I mean the 1985 season) who led the Monsters of the Midway to their Superbowl Victory, with what is widely hailed as the greatest Defense of all time.
These upstanding men included...
#55 Otis Wilson
#50 Mike Singletary
#99 Dan Hampton
#76 Steve McMichael
And here's to this season...
Here's to you, Brian Urlacher, for your brave efforts rehashing the Junkyard Dogs once again this season. We know you're working hard. So. We will ignore.
Everything (we find on MySpace).
Anyway. With last week's season opening surprise win against the Colts (even Vegas didn't see it coming), Kyle Orton looks positive. For now. Especially since Orton has someone to connect with: rookie Matt Forte. Big ups for your great efforts last week. And no pressure, dude.
You've only got 3 million people behind you. Waiting for you to let us down.
Not a big deal.
Just, please keep barking at Dallas fans.
