Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman said Monday that Jay Cutler will sit out the next game but remains the No. 1 quarterback despite backup Josh McCown’s strong play.
Josh McCown spent a few quiet moments trying to figure out what would happen. He probably didn’t envision this.
This time, it is not Ndamukong Suh being fined – at least not so far.
“Barry Sanders, he did it all,” Bush said. “I think just about every kid who grew up watching him. He’s just a joy to watch. I love watching him. I try to pattern my game after him, try to run like him. He did it all.”
“At some point in time,” Bush added, “the little brother always grows up and ends up being the bigger brother.”
Trash talk about a football team is nothing new. Trash talk about a long-struggling city that just declared for bankruptcy? That is what the Detroit Lions have dealt with the past few years.
Calvin Johnson stepped up when Detroit needed him the most. Similar to what Herman Moore used to do for the Lions.
Although the Chicago Bears seemed comfortable with a backup quarterback last week, they’ll call on their starter as they try for a second straight victory over a NFC North frontrunner on Sunday.
“It’s tough,” said Detroit’s Matthew Stafford, who has completed 60.0 percent of his passes and thrown three TDs and six INTs while going 0-4 at Chicago. “They play pretty well at home like everybody in our division does. It’s a big challenge.”
Sure, the Bears won at Lambeau Field on Monday Night, but they did it with the Packers’ trotting out backup quarterback Seneca Wallace, who hadn’t taken a snap in professional football for more than two years.
