The Chicago Bears. Defense, hard nosed, punch you in the mouth smash mouth football. And for once, they actually are. The defense has been amazing this year, keeping them close in games that should have been blown wide open and making blowouts actually only show like moderate defeats on the stat sheet (Giants game comes to mind).
Cutler woke up. That is seriously the only explanation I have. Either that or the man got some very quick lasik. He went from throwing interceptions at a rate that made you wonder if he could tell what team he was on, to throwing TDs at a rate that looks like a hall of famer. Here’s hoping whatever he did sticks and we get more of this Dr. Jay and not Mr. Cutler.
On the other side of the ball, the Eagles and Michael Vick in particular impressed me with their resilience and their ability to make stuff happen. Even when they were down and looked like they were just done, they kept on fighting and made a real game out of it. My hat goes off to Michael Vick and I just hope that he can continue to focus on football and stay away from the bad influences that tainted what should have been one of the greatest careers this sport has ever seen.
