Alex Smith- Future Hall of Famer?

Guess who's back? Back again...guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back...

It was a little more nerve-wracking at the end than I would have preferred, but the Bears' front four stepped up at the end of the game and held on to beat the Packers, cover the spread, and get the bankroll going in the right direction. Hopefully this win will start a little rally for me...

Favre is good for one terrible INT a game; and he didn't disappoint yesterday, lofting the ball into the hands of Lance Briggs for an easy defensive TD. Favre has gotten to the point that I was more expecting of a Bears score when Favre had the ball than when Grossman did.

As an illustration of Favre's deterioration, here are Favre's numbers the past four games compared to overall #1 pick Alex Smith:

Favre: 96/169, 57% completion, 908 yards, 5.37 yds/attempt, 0 TDs, 9 INTs
Smith: 45/86, 52.3% completion, 516 yards, 6.0 yds/attempt, 0TDs, 5 INTs

So don't worry about them calling you a bust, Alex're as good as Brett Favre!

Now you just need to get Al Michaels, John Madden, Joe Theisman, Paul Maguire, and Chris Berman to sing your praises every day and you're a superstar!
