Towards the end of the Bears fabulous victory over the Falcons, some guy intercepted a Matt Ryan pass.
With about 4 minutes to go and the Bears up by 14, you could kinda relax a little.
But the anncr says that it was intercepted by "Demontre Hurst" and I said, "Who?"
Seriously, the Bears fielded a team of guys you never heard of.
Not that the guys announcing would let you know - some time in the 2nd half they showed a graphic of the starting linebackers, and of course they're all injured.
Then they showed some other guys.
Just some guys playing D for the Bears.
Anyway, this is kind of fun - here's what it says on Wikipedia about Demontre Hurst:
"Hurst was signed by the Chicago Bears on April 28, 2013 after going undrafted in the2013 NFL Draft. He was released by the Bears on August 31, 2013. He was signed to the Bears practice squad on September 4, 2013. Hurst was signed to a futures contract by the Bears on December 11, 2013. He made his NFL debut on special teams September 7, 2014 against the Buffalo Bills. He was released by the Bears on September 8, 2014. He was re-signed by the Bears on September 18, 2014."
It is amazing that a guy this marginal is playing corner for the Bears and makes an interception.
Did you notice how many drops the Falcon recievers had?
That's because for the first time in AGES, the Bears seemed to be hitting.
Not classic Bears or anything, but when recievers just start not catching balls right in their hands because they flinching instead, it brings joy and happiness to my miserable Bears' heart.
Bears 27 Falcons 13 and Jay Cutler was pretty outstanding.
Maybe I should do more mean posts like the one I put up just before the game...
And the Cardinals beat the Giants but lose Yadier Molina, which is a serious dagger in the hopes of people wearing bright red everywhere.
It's crazy but there's almost too much sports right now.
I haven't even said anything about the Blackhawks.
