Heck of an opener!
The season opener is always a great time. The two previous home openers were real bummers as the Bears had their way with the Pack in a big way. Today's game was a surprise for many as we came out swinging with defensive and special teams plays that netted 10 points in the first few minutes. Of course the Eagles settled down and slowly came back, and tied up the score at 10 apiece. Again special teams pulled out a botched punt return into a possession and kicked a field goal to win with 5 seconds left. It wasn't pretty, but it was a heck of a game.
Its still going to be a long season, and if the games are anything like this, the guy who sits in front of me won't have ANY fingernails left!
