Oh, and check out this paragraph from Tribune writer David Haugh:

"On the sixth play Sunday against the Packers, Grossman's fake handoff was so convincing that safety Marquand Manuel found, for an instant, that his feet were frozen in the slippery tundra of Lambeau Field. It bought Bears wide receiver Bernard Berrian what amounts to an eternity in an NFL secondary, and his extra half-step went a long way toward the Bears taking a quantum leap of faith in their passing game." (italics mine)

He gets paid to write stuff like that? There must be a special sportswriter's school where they're actually encouraged to stuff as many cliche's into one sentence as possible...
