During the Bears-Seahawks game, a lead-in quoted Lovie Smith saying "Chicago Bears Football is about a middle linebacker and a running back," or something to that effect. The camera panned through the Soldier Field collonades with images of Dick Butkus, Mike Singletary (and Urlacher?) for the MLBs and Gale Sayers and Walter Payton for the Running Backs.
Conspicuously absent from the images of Chicago running backs were
Anthony Thomas, Curtis Enis, Craig Heyward, Edgar Bennett, and Rashaan Salaam.
I'm baffled at how their achievements could have been overlooked.
PS: I've heard at least two people on NBC tonight compare Rex Grossman to Brett Favre, and that's two too many for a player who still hasn't played enough games to fill out a full rookie season.
PPS: I'm not ready to shuffle just yet, and won't be till the Bears win the NFC Championship game, but I'm moving closer to relinquishing my title of "Token Prophet of Doom."
They looked awfully good last night.
