HAHAHAHA! OH. MY. GOODNESS!!! This might be the biggest sporting event ever played in Chicago -- WOW.
You’ve got yourself the NFC North Champion, Chicago Bears, getting ready to face-off against the Green Bay Packers. The winner gets to hold up the Halas Trophy, as well as a chance to hoist the Lombardi Trophy.
It doesn’t get any bigger than this.
I think there’s been 180 regular season meetings between these two rivals in the entire history of the NFL, but this will only be the second time they’ve squared off in the postseason (I think the last time this happened was in 1941). This is just unbelievable -- I can’t believe it -- I’m beyond geeked.
That was a huge win we just had against Seattle. All of us were focused and wanted to lock down the win early, and we did just that. We can thank our offense for helping us dominate the game, because they came out hard and fast with a ton of points.
Defensively, I thought we started off great. We made them punt on their first 8 possessions, which is huuuuuge. As far as their running game goes, we eliminated it, just as I said we needed to. By halftime, the game was 21 to nuthin’ and we were feelin’ juuuust fine.
I can’t say enough about the job Peanut Tillman did on Mike Williams. He held him to only four catches, which is huge when you take into consideration how big of a day he had against us last time (I think he had - like - 10 catches, for 120 yards, or sumthin’).
Special teams also deserves some recognition, because they took care of things with authority. I know Devin gets the most recognition, but - IMO - that Corey Graham is the unsung hero of the special teams. He definitely showed everyone, yet again, why he should be a Pro Bowler.
I’ve been telling you all season how confident I am in this team - You believe me now? (Haha) We have a great bunch of guys on this team who are one game away -- one win away -- 60 MINUTES AWAY from playing in SUPER BOWL XLV! This is for aaaaaall the marbles, people! I mean, if you were a Hollywood writer, I don’t think you could’ve scripted this season any better than it’s panned out on its own.
So you’ve got the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers playing this Sunday at Soldier Field for the Halas Trophy -- Let’s GET IT!!!
