Feels good. Feels real good. Basically the perfect night in Dallas. Walked into town and absolutely manhandled the Cowboys. Everything we’ve been looking for in the first 4 weeks of the season came out last night. Both sides of the ball dominating a football game. Defense playing a classic Tampa 2 style game. Bend don’t break, make the other team string together 15 plays, and ballhawk the entire way down the field. I have no idea how Lovie has basically turned this D around from last year but it sure as hell looks good. And I know everyone is going to say, oh that’s just because Romo sucks. Well that’s part of it, but the other part is having a defense where guys are always in the right spot, always swarming to the ball and making plays. Its not just a coincidence that Lovie coached teams are always at the top of the league for takeaways, no matter who is throwing the ball.
As for the offense. Lets just get the little tiff between Cutler and Tice out of the way.
1. Who gives a fuck. Honestly. This is the sort of stuff that happens in the heat of the moment and everyone outside of Chicago perseverates on. Cutler is such a baby. Cutler doesn’t know how to be a teammate. Cutler just being Cutler, whatever the fuck that means. So Jay Cutler was pissed off for 2.4 seconds on Monday Night Football and then went on to go 18-24 for 275 yards and 2 tds. Like that somehow proves he can’t “lead” a team. This is Skip Bayless and Stephen A Smith type of shit. Noise for noise sake.
Lets look at it from the other point of view. You don’t think Tice was coming over to yell at Cutler? Guy yells at literally everyone. So wasn’t Cutler actually being mature with the whole situation by avoiding conflict? Nah, that’s too far fetched, Cutler is just a baby.
2. Did people see Mike Tice last night with his hipster glasses? Fucking creep city. I wouldn’t want to sit next to him either.
How’s that mid life crisis going Mike?
As for Dallas. Well, their night was Anger, Sadness, and creepy Asian bro’s with D-Fence signs when they were down 24 points and the entire stadium was chanting “Lets Go Bears”. Absolutely perfect.
PS – Mort. Nailed It.
