With the Bears embarrasing loss to Pittsburgh it seemed the entire world jumped off the bandwagon. Today on the Cowherd show he had Trey Wingo and March Schlareth appearing. Cowherd mentioned that Atlanta was favored in Chicago, in awful weather, with a banged up Vick and thought that was awful disrespectful. This is some paraphrased things that were said.
- Chicago's defense is playing with hurt feelings. They need to put 8 in the box, blitz every down and hit Vick every chance they can. If Vick can avoid that pressure and beat you with his arm, so be it.
- It was one game. You don't discount a team based on one performance.
- Orton hasn't played great, but he isn't as bad as you think. I (Schlareth) can give you 12 straight pass plays where Orton put the ball where it needed to be, but the receivers have a defender in their hip pocket every time.
