Well, it's a W.
Over a really awful Lions team missing their QB Matthew Stafford, who was an odd early Sunday morning scratch.
And Mitchell Trubisky - I've come to the conclusion that I can't be angry with this kid because none of this is his fault.
He didn't force anybody to move up in the draft and take him before all that other talent.
Did you watch the Packers v Panthers game?
There's Aaron Rodgers who's brilliant. And then there's the kid taking Cam Newton's spot, Kyle Allen.
He's 23. Trubisky's 25.
Listening to the game, I heard over and over again how Panther Offensive Coordinator Norv Turner made the offense simple for Allen to run.
And Allen was really so good. A couple mistakes but he came this close to beating the Packers in Green Bay.
In my head I'm screaming WHY CAN'T NAGY DO THAT FOR TRUBISKY AND WHY DID THE BEARS GET THE WRONG TURNER WAY BACK THEN?
Because they're the Bears.
Crap, I was trying to say something nice today...
Third Quarter Mitch was actually kind of impressive, and for him something to point to and build on.
And just when you thought the Bears were actually having a game that THEY could build on... the 4th quarter happened and you and I were right back where we started.
Back before the game started, wondering if that's an actual pro team Chicago is fielding.
One of the Bears really good ones, Danny Trevathan... I hope you accidentally looked away when they showed the replay.
Because that was an unexpected injury to witness.
I wish that when there are injuries, the network would review what they're about to show and if they still want to show it, warn people.
So that I never see that kind of grotesque stuff ever.
I can't unsee.
The arm bending the wrong way.
We'll see how long he's out, but it may be the rest of the year.
As unfortunate as that was, we got to see his backup come in and be awesome.
Nick Kwiatkoski was all over the place and "recorded nine tackles, one interception, one sack and one tackle-for-loss."
Okay, the Cubs.
Now it's way out in the open that perhaps the best trade option is Willson Contreras.
I'm hurling, but that's probably right.
Today's the first signal of hot stove - the GM meetings begin in Scottsdale.
We'll see what happens, but I've been reading about Cub catcher prospect Miguel Amaya. He's not ready to come up yet, but that's what they said about Contreras, too.
Sahadev Sharma at The Athletic (sub req) says, "The youngster should start next season at Double A, is advanced defensively and has the potential to be an above-average bat."
And in the meantime, Victor Caratini - his bat is effective because it's different than the others in the lineup (he's not a swing and miss homer guy).
I know the whole thing is awful and you'd like to keep everyone but... they'll have to give up something.
Alright, I gotta get out the freaking snow shovel.
