Amazing weekend of upsets and "surprises." Arizona beating New England. Seattle rolling up on Dallas. The Bills beating KC. The Saints at 0-2 after falling to Carolina. Indy getting the win over Minnesota. Philly coming back on Baltimore were just some of the great games. In a few weeks we will see how things stack up and who are the contenders and pretenders really are.
There are two things that I have to note. First, the 49ers are really good. They play football the way it should be played. They have a great D and they run the ball well. The power running sets up their passing game nicely.
Two, all four teams in the NFC North are 1-1. The Bears, and more specifically, Jay Cutler and the offense need to get straightened out. The O-line wasn't very good, but there were problems with the play calling and Jay holding on to the ball too long that contributed to the problems. They will figure it out - or at least they better if they are going to contend. Losing Forte hurts, but he'll be back in a couple of weeks. Bush is more than sufficient as a lead back. The D just needs to keep on doing what it is doing. As a unit they have been very good.
