But, as is well known, the Superbowl will be played on Sunday February 6th, and will pit the Green Bay Packers against the Pittsburgh Steelers. This is only noteworthy on a Chicago sports blog because the Packeers had to defeat the Bears to get there.
So: some one liners -
Cutler injured, took painkilling injection at halftime, tried to go in the second half, couldn't do it.
Todd Collins - useless.
Caleb Hanie - showed footwork, some speed, some poise. According to Chicago sports talkers Boers and Bernsie, none of this matters. He's a guy with a "pop-gun arm" (their characterization) who will never be backup in Chicago because Martz wants a veteran at backup. Come on... Todd Collins? Veteran? Let's try for quality not just years of service.
Defense - not great in first quarter, pretty good after that.
Receivers - adequate. Running Back - pretty good. O Line - stinks.
Two costly interceptions by a guy who hasn't played all year - without them it may have been a different outcome.
Rooting for: Steelers just because I can't bring myself to root for the Pack. But I don't care all that much about the outcome anyway at this point. It's not like the Bears are in it...
