Go Urlacher! Go Rex!
The Colts are the ones that should be worried :)
It's really weird that both teams are in very close proximity to each other!
And it might just be you two, but why do you want the Colts to win so badly?
And my wife, a Cleveland native, would like to remind folks in the Baltimore area that they gave up all moral high ground over the Colts when they swiped the Browns from Cleveland.
Plus, the Ravens got their Super Bowl trophy already.... ;-) And if you really want to talk about sports owners cutting the heart out of a city, Google "Nelson Skalbania" and "Indianapolis Racers" sometime. Or, if that doesn't depress you, try "Curse of Tom Owens".
And I haven't even gotten into what Tony George did to the Indy 500.
Point is, Indy sports fans have suffered plenty.
But why does everybody hate the Bears? What did we do to anybody? We deserve it as much as any other team. We haven't won the Super Bowl since 1986 (I was two months old!)
Chicago? White Sox: two years ago. Bulls: six titles in eight years in the 1990s. Bears: Super Bowl in 1986. (You do, however, have my sympathies over the Blackhawks.)
I'd say that Chicago's had its share of titles. It's Indy's turn.
You can't overlook the Bears though. They did have the best record in the NFC...how they did it I have no idea, but they did accomplish that. One thing is for sure...Rex better show up, because the Colts won't beat themselves like New Orleans did.
I play hockey :)
But anyway, in my opinion, the Bears are one of the few teams that brings the entire city together. People tend to be Sox or Cubs fans and nobody cares about the Blackhawks (which is sad).
Well, it should be a good game anyway. I am just suprised that most people want Indy to win over Chicago. I thought it would be more half and half
My daughter loves hockey. But I can't afford to take her to more than a game or two a year. And there's no local hockey on free TV in LA. So the NHL's losing the chance to develop a lifelong fan. Just stupid marketing.
Indy finally won a big game, good for them, but Pats have 3 rings and they are not done yet. We will look at the draft to fix a few holes and Indy will be losing to us (Pats) as usual in the big game. Remember this is the first Big game Manning has won ever. He may end up with one ring in a few weeks but he will still be two rings short of Mr. Tom Brady.
Brady has at least one more ring to go before he is finished!
Brian Emery writes: "Plus Chicago can not score 35 with that QB."
I Respond: Excuse me? They scored 39 points against the Saints last weekend. In fact, the Rex Grossman led Bears offense scored on four of its first five possesions. There were a total of 16 points scored in those four possesions -- which was more than the total 14 points that the Saints scored in the entire game.
"That QB?" It was THAT quarterback who has amassed a 2006-2007 win/loss record of 15-3. It was THAT quarterback who hit wide receiver Bernard Berrian with a 33 yard pass that locked up last weeks game. And it was THAT quarterback who handed the Saints a 25 point SMACKDOWN in the NFC Championship.
Meanwhile that Manning guy managed to win only three of his last seven regular season games. Not too impressive.
But go ahead. Jump on the bandwagon that predicts the Bear's demise. I'm sure such pronouncements will be as effective as the Saints' Reggie Bush was when he decided to taunt Brian Urlacher after scoring the Saints' second NFC touchdown. The last one they will score this season.
But, like some pathetic woodland creature trying to lope across a busy highway, I remain always hopeful that, one day, an Indy team will make it alive to the promised land on the other side.
I'm a Bucs fan and here in Tampa most of us feel Dungy kinda got screwed when he got fired and Gruden took Dungy's team to the Super Bowl the very next year...don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Jon Gruden too, but I think Dungy is a true class act and he deseves to get a ring. Either way, regardless of who wins, a former Tampa Bay coaching staff will be champion (Lovie or Tony)...kinda says something about the caliber of coaches we produce here in Tampa.
