Nfl: Week 1

Sunday Night

September 13, 2009

Al Michaels serves as the play-by-play announcer and Cris Collinsworth provides the color commentary for tonight's Chicago at Green Bay game (5:15p.m., Channel 4):

Michaels says ...

One of the more intriguing things about this game is, who will be the better quarterback down the line? People say [Jay] Cutler is going to be the reincarnation of the great Sid Luckman, and the franchise quarterback the Bears have always wanted. In the meantime, Aaron Rodgers has moved in quietly and he's a pretty darn good quarterback. While everybody's talking about Cutler, watch out for Rodgers.

Collinsworth says ...

Rodgers was without question the hottest quarterback in the preseason. He was spectacular. Nobody is mentioning Brett Favre's name in Green Bay, which, a year removed, is pretty remarkable. And then Cutler has Chicago giddy almost. I've never seen one guy create the kind of buzz with the kind of seasoned, sophisticated football fans like they have in Chicago. It's like they traded for Tom Brady or something.
