    McCarthy said in his press conference that Scott wells got poked in the eye and fractured his eye orbital.(eye socket) Will likely be out this week and will probably be back after the bye.

    Spitz took way to long to snap the ball in the 2 minute offense. He better get his timing down with Favre.

    Wells out will definately hurt, although maybe Spitz will perform better after a full week of practice. He looked bad last night.

    I think it's hard to just jump into the lineup in the middle of the game and outplay the regular starter. I'll give Spitzy a chance to familiarize this week, and see if he isn't the stud he's rumored to be when he's the Center.

    That poke in the eye is definitely intentional on the Bears' part, they're some of the dirtiest m.f.ers in the league with that kinda of hard-to-see, under the table-type crap. I hate them and hope that they suffer at least 6 season-enders to their starters.

    Seeing the face mask the players wear, it's hard to believe that it wasn't intentional. But we won't ever know for sure.

    I don't get it......why can't a guy wear one just to look cool? I mean, does it hurt anything?
    The "NoFunLeague" strikes again!

    (And I think a yellow shield would look SOOOO cool!) :lol:

    Better yet, why don't they get those one-way decals people put on their car windows? How about a snarling devil face comin at you or a striking snakehead?

    Bad.

    Spitz is good and all, but under Wells the running game started to show up.

    Re: Scott Wells likely out this week. Probably be back after

    I'm sure I'm in the minority here but if any good could come out of this, I believe Spitz could be better at C than Wells, and I've always pulled for Wells. He's a scrapper(Wells) but I don't think he's big enough to handle those DTs on a regular basis. I am disappointed in Colledge. I was looking for big things from him this year.

    I'm worried about Wells. I think this is the same injury that ended Najeh Davenport's season a few years ago. And the Packers have been under-reporting injuries all season (Morency, Herron, Jennings, Holliday, etc.).

    Hopefully Wells wil be back after the break, but if not I think Spitz will be okay.
    It's Clifton and College I'm worried about. They look awful.

    I think Wells is just being nice when he said he didn't think the poke was intentional. I am inclined to believe that to poke someone in the eye while he is wearing a face mask is an intentional move. But htne what do I know?

    linemen being poked in the eye is pretty common actually. when i played, i got quite a few eye gouges which i think were unintentional, and i gave quite a few too, most of which were unintentional. it happens. it hurts.
