These off-seasons that aren’t really off-seasons inexorably move to a point in time where we ACTUALLY PLAY THE GAME!!!And here we are. There have been 2,355,873 articles written about our starting quarterback. There have been 4,348,294 articles written about our backup quarterback. Some good, most bad, and all utter garbage.
It is time to PLAY!!! Lance is getting his shot. Hopefully he will be successful, but no one knows. The NFL has created this 24/7/365 miasma of fucktitude and trashtrolling of any player or team that is coming up, seen as a possible star, or a possible bust. Not sure why he has generated more babbling than draftmates Mac Jones and Justin Fields combined but this is the cycle of madness. Sure, they’ve got a season in the NFL under their belts, but I mean really, DeShaun Watson gets less anger thrown his way than Trey. Jones went to a solid team and did fine. Fields went to a shitty team and struggled.
And, as the NFL would have it, we PLAY that shitty team. Da Bearsss. Just as Seattle plays the best QB to be run out of a given town, Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos. Just as Baker Mayfield takes his Carolina Panthers up against his old team, the factory of sadness. Soon to be renamed the factory of sex offenders, but hey, got to give the NFL credit for getting these matchups on the books for the opening Sunday of the 2022 season.
We all know what we have and what we are. Kittle is becoming a little more fragile that I’d like to see, but I’m more worried about the O line.
Still and all, we should roll over the Bears like the Bills rolled the Rams. 30-13 Niners.
