Dan Jiggetts had the Kool-Aid flowing yesterday on CSNs "Bears Postgame Live". What a way to kick off the most daunting early schedule in recent memory for the Bears!
Matty Ice turned into slush with Henry Melton, Julius Peppers and company bearing down on him. Apparently, Brian Urlacher didnt get the memo that hes entering his 12th season and the experts say hes already on the 18th hole of his football career.
Come to think of it, there was a Matty Ice that was on display yesterday at Soldier Field. His name is Matt Forte. No pay raise, no problem! Watch him maneuver through the Falcons defense like hes winding his way through a bank teller line.
Which in a way, he is. As our buddy Lance Briggs said on "Countdown to Kickoff" last Thursday night, Pay the man!
