OT: MNF Battle of the Backups open thread

So tonight is the epic MNF showdown that looked so good on paper a few weeks ago, the Bears @ the 49ers, but with both Alex Smith and Jay Cutler suffering concussions and missing tonight's game, this looks like it is going to be a defensive slugfest between two powerhouse Ds and two horrible offenses under the backup QBs.  If there are a lot of punts, this might wind up in the Bears favor with Hester liable to break one for a big return or even a TD if the Niners are foolish enough to punt to him.  But I'm thinking tonight's game is going to look a lot like the Bama-LSU game from 2011 (the regular season one) with a very low score.

I'm thinking Bears 13, 49ers 15, but with the backup QBs in, who knows?

OT - Anyone else hate Steve Young on MNF???

I can hardly bare to watch with Steve Young providing colour. On the TD called back in the first half, he was a pompous ass insisting how once the 2nd foot came down the play was over (it was overturned).

Next he suggests that the Raiders need to shut off half the field for Jamarcus Russell to make things easier. INT and Young comes up with "thats why you have to be able to use the whole field. DBs see your eyes only looking one way and makes the pick easy."

Raiders decide to go for it 4th and 15 and he doesn't like the call. Pass complete for the TD and its a gutsy call and he likes it.

Idiot.
