2015 NFL Regular Season Week 9 – Da Bears vs. The Chargers: A Renewal of an Old Rivalry

Da Chicago Bears came to town and brought some fall like weather with them for another titanic Monday Night Football clash.  With this game, Bears quarterback Jay Cutler renewed a long standing rivalry with Charger quarterback Philip Rivers, a rivalry that goes back to 2006 when Cutler played for the Denver Broncos.  Those games were marked by competitive play and a noticeable amount of animus between the two signal callers. And this game was no different.  The Chargers took an early 13 point lead, but Da Bears countered with a one yard Jay Cutler touchdown pass to tight end Martellus Bennett to narrow the score.  The teams traded scoring opportunities until the fourth quarter when Da Bears scored the go ahead touchdown on a circus catch from Cutler to Zach Miller with 3.19 to go, dashing the hopes of the Chargers.

Final Score: Da Bears – 22, Da Chargers – 19

With the loss, the San Diego Chargers drop to 2-7 on the year, further depressing the enthusiasm of those local fans who have yet to give up on the team.  You may recall that the San Diego Chargers have announced their intention to move the franchise to Los Angeles and that intent has been an albatross on the team, leading to a decrease in Charger fan attendance. And Monday was no exception.  It almost seemed like a Bears home game with all those fans wearing blue and orange.

But alas, it was not a Bears home game. It was in fact, a Chargers home game.  And how could you tell…Da Bears don’t have cheerleaders and Da Chargers do!

It was the annual Salute to Service game and the Charger Girls donned special military themed uniforms to honor our servicemen and servicewomen.  Hmmmm.  I wonder if the Department of Defense paid the Charger Girls to wear these special uniforms.  Well done if they did!

Enough chit chat.  Let’s begin this week’s coverage by recognizing the Captains: Kayla, Tina, Tawnie, and Katelyn.

I think the Chargers should try to avoid playing on Monday nights because they’ve lost the last two and I don’t think it’s a good idea to lose on national TV.  It doesn’t leave a positive impression in the minds of the viewers and you don’t want to give a bad impression to the folks in Los Angeles…you know, the people whom you will be trying to attract as season ticket holders next year.
