Just when it looked like Caleb Hanie might be able to lead the Bears to a stirring comeback in the NFC Championship Game, he managed to hit the biggest guy on the field in the numbers — and the Packers' B.J. Raji turned the interception into a pick-six touchdown.â†µâ†µ
It's Raji's first interception return for a touchdown in his NFL career (you're shocked, aren't you?), and Hanie's first interception returned for a touchdown in his NFL career. But, amazingly, it also didn't end the NFC Championship Game.â†µ
That's because Hanie responded to the adversity caused by his own interception to the massive Raji — who calls himself "The Freezer" after Bears great William "Refrigerator" Perry — by leading a touchdown drive.â†µ
How can this NFC Championship Game get any crazier? The reanimated corpses of Red Grange and Bart Starr could get involved at this point, and I don't think I'd bat an eyelash.
