As great as the previously posted TD catch from Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffrey was, someone had to throw it to him, and that someone was just tremendous against the Cowboys Monday night.
Josh McCown tore apart a terrible Dallas defense on national tv. He finished 27/36 with 348 yards, a rushing TD (see above) and 4 passing TDs. McCown and the Bears offense scored on EVERY possession it had Monday.
All that alone is reason enough for McCown to get PotD, but it becomes all the more remarkable when you realize this guy is the Bears number 2 QB, who was coaching high school football and teaching at the beginning of last season.
Now, he’s leading a Bears offense that has been good enough to drag a slipping defense into a tie for first place with the Detroit Lions.
304 rushing yards and four touchdowns. I don’t care if it was on 40+ carries. That is an insane day anyway you slice it. Mason ran all OVER MIZZs defense and led the Auburn “Team of Destiny” to an SEC Title.
This team has just been a blast to watch and follow the last few weeks from the tipped catch win against Georgia, through the Iron Bowl, and now all the way to the BCS National Championship. FSU/Auburn should be a heckuva ride. Can’t wait to see what Mason has in store for a follow up performance.
…And Tim Duncan wins it with a jumper and just 0.4 seconds on the clock. Game. Over. Spurs 102, Hawks 100.

Player of the Day: Tim Duncan
Tim Duncan just might be my favorite basketball player of my generation. I’d say Derrick Rose, but it’s just too depressing right now, and for some reason I just feel wrong calling Jordan mine when he stopped playing when I was five (Jordan’s career ended with the Bulls in 98. End of story).
He’s so technically sound. So fundamentally solid. He plays basketball the way it’s meant to be played.
There is just something magical about watching Duncan getting it done night after night for San Antonio. And last night did he sure get it done.
23 points. 21 rebounds. 2 assists. 1 Steal. 2 blocks. Oh. and before we forget, he hit the game winner (shown in the above .gif).
