Steve O Speak

Wizards Win Without Wall or Lewis: It was either an impressive win by the Wizards or an utter collapse by the Bobcats, either way Washington walks away the victor. The Wizards were without newly acquired Rashard Lewis and star rookie John Wall, yet still won by 30 points. They were helped by the Bobcats being completely inept in the 3rd quarter when they shot just 1-14 from the field and managed just 11 points. Washington scored 31 points that quarter and were helped greatly by the Bobcats 9 turnovers. Although it was a nice win without their top players, the Wizards will need both Wall and Lewis back as they try to make this a respectable season.

Bears Knockout Favre and Clinch The North: When this season began no one was giving the Bears a chance to win the NFC North, but they again showed just how good they can be last night. While the Vikings aren’t the same team, they still possess a good amount of talent, especially on defense and the Bears torched them for the 2nd time this season. Chicago is going to be a force to be reckoned with this postseason, and are looking strong with a balanced offense and a pretty good defense. This was a nice comeback game after getting crushed by the Patriots last week.

Tim Tebow Era Continues In Denver: The Broncos have already announced that Tim Tebow will be the starter this week against the Houston Texans (note to Mike Shanahan that is how you make a quarterback change). Now part of the reason given is the fact that Kyle Orton is still recovering from an injury, but the bigger reason is that Tebow showed a little promise in his first start. Everyone knew that Tebow could be a dangerous runner, but 70+ yards later including a 40 yard TD run showed just how big of a threat he could be. While Tebow’s delivery is still a bit awkward and not the most efficient, he threw the ball well in his first start. It was a very conservative game plan, but I was impressed that Tebow didn’t force the ball and throw a pick. The Texans also represent a good opportunity since their defense has been so horrible. They have one of the most inept pass defenses in the league, so Tebow should have no problem getting comfortable against them.
