You're right, I really hope he excels and beats up on the Bucs for the next 12 years...  ::)

Or you could just be happy for the millions of Bears fans who have had to struggle for almost twenty five years without a franchise QB.

Until millions of Bucs fans who have had to struggle for the team's entire existence without a franchise QB get a Jay Cutler, I think I'll just stick to being bitter and disgruntled, thanks.   :-*

Nice of Cutler to totally insult the Bronco fans in his press conference today.   ::)

Don't remember his exact words...I was driving at the time, but it did have me exclaim "WHAT?!" when I heard it.  I'm not even the big Bronco fan in the house....that honor goes to the Mrs.   ;)

She's pretty pissed.

I'd be pretty curious to know what he said in that press conference.  I looked around online and pretty much all of his comments are just about how playing for the Bears is a dream come true since he grew up as a Bears fan.  Here's his comment on what went down in Denver - sounds like a pretty humble and decent guy to me.

''Obviously, there's been a lot said on my part and the Broncos' part over the last couple of months,'' he said. ''I think both sides would possibly do a few things different, but everything happens for a reason, and that's behind me. This is a dream come true for me. I'm looking forward to the future.''

End of an Era.  Although I think Chris Collinsworth will do a good job, I'm going to miss John Madden.  He's been calling games since I was a kid.

I'm not a huge Madden fan actually, so I'm glad to see him go since I find him to be rather annoying.  I feel that way about almost all the national announcers in any sport though.

I was a fan in the 80's and most of the 90's, but the past decade has been pretty hard to take.  I think that it was right around the time when he started putting his name on video games that I started to dislike him as an announcer.

I'm not looking forward to Collinsworth in the booth on Sunday nights.  I would much rather have Keith Olbermann or Dan Patrick in the booth with Al.  Leave Collinsworth in the studio to suck up to Bob Costas some more...

I liked Collinsworth when he was on Fox in the booth with Joe Buck and Aikmen...but I'll most likely watch the Sunday night games on mute.  I already skip their pregame.

Fox still has the best pregame.   :D

I think Collinsworth is one of the best, if not the best, color analysts currently working so I'm looking forward to him in the booth with Al.

Now that the full schedule is out I was excited to see the Giants are playing the Broncos in Denver....but it's on Thanksgiving!

We'll be eating turkey either at noon or tailgating.....maybe both!
