Live blogging: Game One

1st quarter

3:10 Looks slippery out there. Yikes for Saints.

3:13 Ah first Rex throw - lousy.

3:19 Yeah, Bob, I agree. Brees looks pretty good. That field looks danged slippery.

Bob wants to know - any late prognostications.

Ack! Saints fumbled and recover, barely. Wow.

3:21 Scary moment with Hester on the return.

3:32 RATS! Tough fumble... Boo Bears.

3:36 Fourth down... 3 pts. opportunity. Rooting for a Bengal/Romo.

WTF? They are going for it? Well, hold 'em defense.

3:39 Why no penalty on back to back time outs? Payton head's up. Now a missed TD pass. Woo-hoo. ...good block! Go Saints.

Good grief! The defense might win this single-handedly without Grossman. NO needs to hang onto that ball!

Agree Kim - down.

2nd quarter

3:51 3 more. But hey, one TD could erase all that. As we Bengal fans know all too well. Come on Drew!

4:01 Rex makes big play... Saints faltering.

4:03 Desperate times lead to desperate measures... blue corn chips and cheese slices... in my bed! Hang the crumbs.

Ha! Take that sexy Rexy. The Saints are comin'... Look out. They'll get their rhythm.

4:11 Chicago: defense will win the game. But I'm not giving up yet.

4:17 Lovie figured it out: Get the ball out of Grossman's hand and give it to the runners. Rats.

Time for a beer. Can the Saints get through this attack with another field goal?

My eyes, my eyes!

4:26 That's what I'm talkin' bout! Good passing.

4:30 Touchdown!! Here come da Saints!

Halftime: Bears 16, Saints 7

New entry for the second half. Eat snacks. :)

Breese doesn't look to bad.

Any half-time prognosticators out there :)

Kansas Bob said...

Yikes - fumble recovery ... Saints got lucky!

Ampersand said...

Looks like we are going to have a tight, low scoring game here...

Ampersand said...

FUMBLE!

Kansas Bob said...

What's with all the fumbles

julieunplugged said...

I;m reading your comments while I'm posting. Welcome! LOL. It's fun to watch with you two (I am grading essays while I watch).

Ampersand said...

Julie, talk about multi-tasking, LOL.

Ampersand said...

Damn, first down :-(.

Ampersand said...

DENIED!!!!

Ampersand said...

NO! Down by contact.

Ampersand said...

Not looking good right now!

Ampersand said...

9 on the board is much better than 21...

julieunplugged said...

Kim what's your husband doing? Dancing? Get out your Bears Defense voo-doo doll. They need some serious pricks with a pin.

julieunplugged said...

Agreed. Grossman is playing awfully. Did you see his stat? Now he's three for 12 and only 37 yds, 30 in one throw.

Ampersand said...

Actually, he wants the Saints to win. He just thinks Da Bears will win.

Ampersand said...

man, chicago's defense came to play!

julieunplugged said...

My comments didn't work for a second there. Good man, boogieman. This is the game I was wavering on with my picks. I want to believe that the Saints can do it, but I didn't believe it to my core.

I just don't want to see the Bears in the Superbowl. Yuck.

Ampersand said...

Lovie figured it out: Get the ball out of Grossman's hand and give it to the runners. Rats.

If the Saints don't keep their defense off the field in the second half, this puppy is over!

-- We are closing up at 5, and will head home for our chippage ;-).

I will run to the computer at commercials to check in with you...this is fun! The blogging part, not the game.

I came into this game way too late -- 8 minutes left in the 2nd quarter. The Bears defense does look tough, and Thomas Jones is carrying the load offensively for them.

Pulling hard for the Saints -- comeback story of the year.

Great catch, Colston!!

Ampersand said...

YEAH baby. It's a start...

julieunplugged said...

Love that throw. Pretty as a picture. Great reception too.

Bears won't win if Brees comes alive like this in the second half.

Ampersand said...

Grossman is not the brightest crayon in the box.

who brought the beer??

Go saints. Hope they can turn this thing around!!

TD BABY!!!!!!!!!!
