Ex-Bears Featured Prominently in NFL’s First Yawn Fest

Thankfully there were a few Bear sightings on Thursday Night Football. Though the Colt’s metaphorical pantsing of the Saints [1] was like visual Nyquil (without the buzz), former Cal players did their best to entertain the Clog.It appears Daymeion Hughes has found a happy home with his new blue team. The man played corner like a caffeinated wombat, and generally acquitted himself quite nicely for a slow guy (the man ran his 40 like an opium addled sloth). He also came this close to intercepting one of many errant Brees heaves.And Matthew Giordano had an auspicious start to his season. The former Cal DB had an 83-yard pick-six. Have you noticed that our school has become a regular defensive back mill lately? The League can thank us for Hughes, Giordano, Deltha O’Neal, and Nnamdi Asomugha (pronounced “alksjdfalhdfalkjsdf;a”), just to name a few. Man, if only we could have some of those guys back for our currently so-so defense.Another Pac 10 alum used the game to continue his quest to be the most over marketed football player in the nation. The Clog saw many, many, Reggie Bush ads in between yet another mediocre Reggie performance. Why the star treatment so soon? We’d make a snarky comment about USC students and entitlement, but we’ve got to go find and polish those old Giordano rookie cards. Oh, and the Clog may just recap Marshawn’s first game…depending on how hyphy we feel.
