BEARS KEEP GETTING BACKHANDED PROPS
This week on “The Bears Are Who They Thought We Were”…
Miami’s Jason Taylor steps up to the mic to deliver this bulletin board material.
“I’m not going to sit here and pump them up more than everybody else is. They bleed like us. They can be beaten like we have. It’s as simple as that.”
Even against the Bears’ offensive line, which is the key to the success enjoyed by Rex Grossman and the rest of the offense?
“They’re good,” Taylor acknowledged. “They do a good job. Big, physical guys. A lot of maulers, a lot of holders.”
“It’s not going to take a miracle to beat this team,” he said. “They’re a good team. They have a lot of good players, some of the top players at their positions.
“But we’re not playing the ’72 Dolphins or the All-Madden team on the video game. I give them respect, but sorry, guys, that’s about it. We’ll still come up there and do what we want to do.”
Well Jason, if ‘doing what you want to do’ was part of weeks 1-8, then go ahead and do it. Taylor is a good player and likely very frustrated. A lot of people picked Miami for the playoffs or even the Super Bowl this year. But this team’s offensive line is so heinous that the Bears can have another Arizona game by Rex and still win.
Last year they picked off Joey Ballgame 5 times in week 2 when he was a Lion. The Bears D-Line is better this year. I’m thinking 5 sacks and 2 picks–at least. And of course a Bears win.
