Chicago – Pittsburgh

Just saw the Bears take a  10-0, I mean 17-0 lead over Pittsburgh.

The Steelers are looking like a team that’s gotten rid of its really old guys and the young guys aren’t coming through. In all fairness, the Steelers philosophy has always been to get rid of its aging stars before they couldn’t play anymore. Usually, they’ve had the scouting and development process to get young guys who could play. Not now. The Bears look like they are in jailbreak mode on every pass rush. Pittsburgh is having a difficult time with its pass protections.

The Bears are looking sharp, like a team who finally has the offensive mindset to match its defense. Give credit to Marc Trestman, who is taking advantage of his weapons. Cutler, Marshall, Forte. Cutler isn’t getting hammered like he was in years past; he’s getting the ball out quickly. Pittsburgh isn’t an easy place to play, but the Bears are making it look easy so far. And this is only the first quarter!

Maybe Lovie Smith, fired after a 10-6 season, needed to go.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
