Rex Grossman, my favorite football player, performed so badly last night (four picks, two lost fumbles, no touchdowns) that I’ve coined a new word to best capture it: horrendific, which combines horrendous and horrific. Rex was horrendific, but the defense scored two late touchdowns, followed by an 83-yard punt retuen for a touchdown for Chicago, followed by a missed field goal for the Cardinals. It all adds up to a horrendific win for the still undefeated Bears, and a crushing loss for the hard-luck Cardinals and their fans. I was surprised that the police didn’t show up at the stadium last night to arrest the Bears for stealing.
