So going back to the report on the Bears Pats thread, is the tweet that Zappe was going to start real or not. Was Zolak imbibing early or just took a shot to say I told you so?
BTW- I have mixed feelings about Mac playing tonight. I ONLY want him out there if he is feeling good. I DON'T want him just "toughing it out". He is on the inside range of a 4-6 week injury. Everyone heals differently so you never know. On the plus side, the 4 weeks gave him a chance to heal from the nagging upper body hits he took in the first 2 games. And having 3 games to watch from the side lines can give a player some "perspective" that is valuable. Remember at the start of the season, with all those worries and questions about the defense, it might have put a lot more pressure on Mac to do more than was out there. Now that the defense has shown its mettle and Zappe showing how do more by doing less, Mac will get back to being the QB we all hope he is to become.
The other plus I see if he plays this game is that NEXT week we meet the 5-2 Jets in NJ and I'll be happy that Mac will have shaken off any rust he may have in the Bears game. What I don't want to see, is make limp....even once, if he plays.
Now I'm off to the gym, so I will LITERALLY be 'pumped up" before this game.
