The NFL blesses us with Thursday football. It's a crap matchup for most, as a team with only a quarterback faces a team that should have stuck with Shaun Hill. Normally, Alex Smith against the Bears would be a carnival of fifty-step drops and cross-bodied interceptions. Supposedly Smith has improved; I know the Bears defense has gotten worse. A really bad quarterback, what I've always known Smith to be, can make almost any defense look good.
Will he? I can only hope.
