Monday Sept. 14. 3:00 p.m.
The big day is finally here. It's
the ideal Monday night matchup.
The potential highlight of what may
be a strike-shortened NFL season.
The game I longed for is finally
I'm talking, of course, about
tonight's matchup of football's
superpowers. It's New York against
Chicago, the "Big Apple" and the
"Windy City", the victors of Super
Bowl XX and XXI, the "Junkyard
Dogs" against L.T. and company,
the Giants against the Bears.
At this writing, I'm heading west
on I-94 en route to Chicago's
Soldier Field. Traveling with four
other Bear fans and three dreaded
Giants followers, I hope to arrive in
Ann Arbor early tomorrow morning
with the chance to again proclaim
that the Bears are the finest football
team in the NFL.
Whatever the outcome, most fans
are expecting one of the best football
games in recent years. The biggest
question is: which of these two top
defensive teams will break, or even
Even if regular Bears QB Jim
McMahon was healthy last year, the
Giants were still the better team.
They were hungry and angry like the
Bears had been the previous year.
The Bears were shut-out, 23-0, by
San Francisco in the 1984 NFC
championship game but responded
by winning 18 games and the Super
Bowl the following year.
In their last meeting, the Giants
were shut out 21-0 by the Bears in
the 1985 championship. We are well
aware of what happened last year.
In 1987, both teams have
something to prove. The Giants
hope to not only avenge their last
loss to the Bears, but also become
the first NFL team since the
Pittsburgh Steelers to repeat as
Super Bowl champs.
The Bears expect to return to their
overpowering form of 1985 and
show the country that they can win
without Jim McMahon.
It was a beautiful night for
football as we arrived in Chicago.
After a famous Due's pizza, we
headed for the stadium. As the
Chicago Sun-Times had headlined on
its front page today, "it was
Tuesday Sept. 15. Very
"Bear Down, Chicago Bears."
My companions and I hummed the
Chicago fight song for most of our
journey home following the game.
The Bears' defense returned to its
vintage form, sacking the Giant
quarterbacks nine times in a 31 -19
pasting of the "suburbanites."
The Giants looked like they
would break the game open early,
following a blocked punt that was
recovered for a touchdown. On the
Giants' next drive, a vicious hit by
Wilbur Marshall caused Phil Simms
to fumble deep in Chicago territory
and from then on the Bears owned
Mike Tomczak gave the Bears the
lead with a one-yard plunge to etid
the first half. He finished the Giants
off in the third quarter with
touchdown passes to Willie Gauit
and Ron Morris.
Following a touchdown
interception by the Giants' Terfy
Kinard, Dennis McKinnon iced tle
game for the Bears on a spectacular
94-yard punt return.
It was a great way -to start the '87
season. Hopefully, a strike can be
avoided so the cream of the NFL can
meet again in the playoffs.
