Bears Win Dog Fight (Yep, I Know)

A rare Sunday night appearance from the Blogfather, I know.  But deal with it.

To the national media.  To the pundits.  To the local writers who doubted.  To the local fans who weren't sure.  I have an announcement to make.
The 2010 Chicago Bears can win the Super Bowl.  
Will they?  I don't know.  But I've watched every team around this league show their flaws for the past few weeks and know there's not a dominant team to be found.  Today I watched the Chicago Bears look like one of the best teams in the league.  Today they did everything well.  Everything, maybe, except close out the fourth quarter.  But that they're learning.
I'm in.  I'm sold.  The Bears can play.  Hope is back in the city of Chicago.  See ya tomorrow.

    Didn't check the game thread, but was I the only one that saw Artoo in his Superman outfit???
    I turned to my wife and went "holy shit".

    If anyone was watching they had to see him. He was front and center, the star of the two minute warning! Unless the rest of the DBB family was up taking a piss?

    That was timeless. He's put the pressure on for the MNF game. I don't have any superhero outfits to wear but I'll come up with something.

  • In reply to iamndmurff:

    He was featured in the game, as well as Football Night in America, complete with Dan Patrick voiceover. Well done, sir. I also turned to my wife and said "Holy Shit, that guy is from the blog I read!" If only his sign had a blog shout-out, it would have been un

    ATTENTION OLSEN HATERS: SHADDAP!

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    One catch, Al. That could be another nickname, One Catch Olsen. At least it was for six points ...

    What a game. Forte averaging 8.4 YPC. What was Cutler's rating? What was it after the first half? I think he's 18-0 or something when his rating breaks the century mark. And thank you Matt Ryan & the Falcons for being 19-1 at home now - we'll pull your wings off in the playoffs ... yes we can actually talk about playoffs now, it's our division to lose now. I don't think we're up for a wild card spot with all the division games we've lost, but man we looked okay tonight. I thought early on that only rushing four and playing safeties that deep might cost us, but Yodanelli knew what he was doing. Bring on the Kitties ....

    Other fantasy fun :

    * Why does it seem like I played against every owner of Dwayne Bowe in my leagues this week? 35 points on a running team? Fuck Dwayne Bowe in the face.

    * Desean Jackson. 2 points for you bro. Jackson and McCoy combined for 80 yards and no TDs. How'd you like dem Bears?

    * Andre Johnson or George Foreman ?

    * Chris Johnson - zero points man? Seriously ? FCJITF!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Out of nine leagues the only one I don't make the playoffs in is DBB Bloggers, go figure. Go Murph ! Go Trac!

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    That catch was a thing of beauty.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    Vick's throw - and the catch by Celek - was a thing of beauty. 4 defenders. 12 square inch window. Unreal.

  • In reply to kenbill:

    Right on, Jack.
    And THAT, boys & girls is why they drafted him.
    NOT to be a 6th offensive lineman.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    +1 on that Al. I'm still an Olesn TE hater, but a Olsen WR lover.

    Nice work tonight '85!!!

    Jeff Hughes, the only sports writer who kept faith in his team is now able to behold what SI.com and espn.com after keeping them in the bottom worst 10 teams in the NFL at the beginning and times throughout this winning season, is about to be forced to put in the top 5!

  • In reply to kenbill:

    i'm loving me some Big Toe and Melton. Big, fast, quick guys that have great motors. Compared to Vick, Sean Hill of the Lions will be standing still. I think it is safe to say that he is fucking dead. I hope they have a third stringer ready to go.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Stick a fork in Jahvid Best (preferably in his toe). Shaun Hill is playing with a broken forearm ... maybe Peppers can break the other one.

  • In reply to kenbill:

    Bears won playing 11 vs. 18 today as we were saddled with yet ANOTHER piss-poor herd of Zebras.

    The Bears are pressuring Vick ALL DAY LONG and not ONE offensive holding call on the Eagles? Really? Not even on the play where Adams was TACKLED?

    It was either illegal contact or interference against Forte on that 3rd down play, you turds. It was NOT a "no call".

    Likewise on the one in the endzone too, "Moose" Johnston's ignorant opinion notwithstanding.

    Please, ANOTHER weak holding call in the return game?
    Just because the defender decides to fall on his face because he's being blocked doesn't make it holding.

    You're all FIRED!

    And take Ed Hochuli with you.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Again Al, I'm completely with you. The lack of a single holding call on the Eagles beyond a doubt smacks of biased officiating given the circumstances of the game.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Word. Those calls were striking by their absence.

  • In reply to Mastodon:

    Cris Collinsworth is busy making excuses for Peyton Manning tonight.

    GEMS, like (paraphrasing) "You can't allow your QB to be hit while he's trying to throw the ball".

    Well, DUH!

    I'm sure glad I know THAT now, Cris.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Eighth greatest player of all-time MY NUTSACK !

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    TRUE FACTS, all around. I called out all of these on the game thread, plus the poor spot on 3rd down that allowed Vick to convert on 4th.

    The Forte call was the worst - he was mauled - and also the most important. If we get the call, we're in FG range, take a couple more minutes at least off the clock, and go up 18. Wouldn't have gotten that scare in the end in that case.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    And the P.I. that Cutler lost his mind over and got called for unsportsmanlike instead.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Side note: I AM BEASTING IN FANTASY FOOTBALL!

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Exactly. Everytime they showed a slow mo or close up of Vick in the pocket, it seemed like a bears' defender was being held. I know u gotta let em play a bit, but c'mon man! Adams was tackled, FROM BEHIND.

    If they didn't interfere with Forte, that's possibly 7 or a first down conversion, game over.

    Bad Bad calls.

    Yeah, the ref threw the flag because his feeling were hurt - but fuck all that is how to get out there and lead a team.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Classic. Loved it.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    I knew it was coming. As Peyton throws his 4th interception, Collingsworth couldn't fucking help himself. He unapologetically referenced his insane comment regarding Eli's shitty INT riddled performace last week and proceeded to compliment Peyton on throwing his 4th fucking interception! his 4th! It almost becomes hilarious if it wasn't so obvious and biased.

    btw, did any of you guys notice that last series when we were trying to just kneel it down to close out the game and those dirty pieces of shit kept trying to fire off the ball and fuck with our guys.

    Wtf was that? disgusting.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Lots of articles out there right now on the four letter site and SI.com finally giving the Bears their props. My favorite quote comes from this one http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/nfl/columns/story?id=5861613 "I enjoy watching them," cracked Bears corner D.J. Moore of the offense. "They're the greatest show on dirt, because that field is tough. Imagine them on another field."

    The field looked worse than most high school fields. I figured the Eagles would be whining about it after the game since they had several slips that caused them issues but both teams play on the same surface.

    The D line played their best game of the season and did a hell of a job pressuring VIck with just four men. The linebackers did an outstanding job as well keeping Vick from long runs and patrolling the middle. The commentators kept commenting about how the Bears limited the iggles to no big plays but the Bears kept ripping them off. Other than a few missed assignments the Oline had an outstanding game as well. All around great team victory.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    the Bears ownership should be fucking embarassed about the state of disrepair of the field. My old highschool puts that field to shame. i've played on it and they used to spraypaint the dirt green for fucks sake. FUCKING UNBELIEVABLE. i can't believe that the park district workers that have no clue what they are doing get to keep their fucking jobs. Furthermore, i can't believe that the fucking park district of chicago has jurisdiction over a professional football team's home field. just a symbol of the corruption that is chicago, and the utter ambivalence of the McCaskeys for the well being of the team.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Worked out well for us though, we must have been wearing 12-inch cleats.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    I believe the recognized "First Family" of groundskeepers, the Bossards, maintain the White Sox field at the Cell in Chicago but the Bears, in their infinite wisdom, think the Chicago Park District's army of patronage workers are a better choice.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I wished someone would of went Andre Johnson on their ass.

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    Olin looked like he was about ready to go Fred Miller on some asses tonight.
    This team has a serious chip on its collective shoulder AND I LIKE IT.

  • In reply to MikeBrownhadaPosse:

    Olin was ready to take on like 3 Eagles. I guess they forgot that Olin was a heavyweight wrestling champ, and that he once broke a 300pounds man jaw.

    What I did like at the end is that Cutler kinda ran back a little and gloated after the Dirty Chickens tried their little tricks.

  • In reply to Grizzly559:

    With hair like that Finnegan deserves everything he got.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I'd take Finnegan on my team in a heartbeat.

  • In reply to PhantomOne:

    There's a difference between "hard nosed" and 'dirty". We don't need "dirty", ergo, I can't endorse Finnegan.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    It's the first time they lost since Vick started and finished a game.

    I almost feel sorry for them. YEAH, RIGHT.

  • In reply to sjvl:

    He lost to the 'Skins I think. First interception he's thrown since 2006, not many can say that!

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I don't think he finished that one though, Irish. Pretty sure he was injured.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Deion Sanders puts Cutler at #4 on the primetime list, but no love for the D (probably because of our fourth quarter).

    Cutler is stepping up and the team is stepping up around him; he's not elite yet, but he's getting there. He also threw passed 15000 total yards in his career today. A bit more pass protection and a true #1 option, and he'll be on his way to the hall of fame.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    So let's see - where are we ? Anyone got any cool offensive stats for us?

    We're leading the league in :

    * Fewest points allowed
    * Stopping opponents on 3rd down
    * Takeaways
    * Interceptions
    * Average starting field position
    * Healthiness
    * Cool nicknames for defensive players
    * Ehh ... false starts on offense ...

    Nearly leading the league in :

    * Fewest passing TDs allowed (8, one behind the Saints with 7)
    * Rushing defense (2nd)

    Sexy points :

    Unbeaten in our division.

    Just beat the Eagles in a much more impressive fashion than the 5 point victory suggested (played the entire 4th quarter/game?! in prevent mode).

    Offensive line play improving weekly. From desperately bad to just bad. Webb is a goon though, in fairness.

    Hester back returning kicks as well as punts.

    Cutler making better decisions (just racked up a 143 QB rating against the former league leaders in takeaways) and looking after the ball better.

    .... and still no respect. We'll just have to go and win it all I guess. What excuse will the media make then? The rest of the league beat themselves .....?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    About six weeks ago, I said I'm happy with the other teams beating themselves all the way through Dallas. Still am.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    I think I'm gona post pregame Bears-Chicken Predictions from around the sporting world. Here's one from a writer at ProFootballWeekly:

    By Dan Parr

    The Bears' defense isn't going to let Michael Vick dominate the game, but he'll be able to make a couple big plays, and that could be all it takes for the Eagles to win.

    Even without ballhawking CB Asante Samuel, who won't play because of a knee injury, Philadelphia will keep Chicago's 30th-ranked offense in check. Defensive coordinator Sean McDermott is going to blitz liberally, and the Bears' offensive line is going to be overmatched at times. Jay Cutler will be hurried consistently and could hurt his cause with a turnover or two.

    The "D" will keep Chicago within striking distance all afternoon, but the offense just won't be productive enough.

    Prediction: Eagles 20, Bears 19

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Just for fun... to get a perfect passer rating (using the formulas on Wikipedia as a guide). You would need:

    Approx. 78% completion percentage
    Average 12.5 yards per catch
    Score a TD once every 8 throws
    And throw no picks.

    So with 21 attempts from Cutler. He would have needed...
    17 completions (he got 14)
    12.5 yards per catch (he was at 17)
    At least 3 TDs (he had 4)
    And no picks (check)

    So we were 3 catches away from a perfect quarterback rating for the game. Who dropped the balls?

    Oh yeah, the last guy to do it (of 60 in history) was Tom Brady on this past thursday. We'll be playing him in a few weeks. Bear down!

  • In reply to mottystone:

    What was his rating after the first half?

  • In reply to sjvl:

    damn. Matt Cassel is quietly wrecking shop; had to do a double-take at his numbers. 22 TDs, 4 INTs

    guess a big-time WR & serious run game can give you that (Bowe is a fucking FREAK this year. 13 TDs)

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Teams are shitting themselves with that #1 o-line and TJ and Charles running it at them. Matching up either him or Fitzpatrick is fantasy love pie. I think the days of drafting the 'elite QBs' first in fantasy drafts are gone. You can pick up a number of QBs from waivers that can outperform the so-called elite - depending on matchup - be it Garrard, Bradford, Stafford, Cassell, Fitzpatrick, even Cutler etc.

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    Those guys picked up Illinois lineman Jon Asamoah. We would have started him immediately in Chris Williams spot.

    The Chiefs don't predict they will need him for 2 more years, to give him time to develop and mature.

    That is how you develop a OL system.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Fark!

    "Statistically, Cutler was brilliant, posting a career-best rating of 146.2 (156.3 is the highest possible mark). He completed 14 of 21 for 247 yards. His average of 11.8 yards per attempt was off the charts."

    Backup CBs or not, it's hard to do better than that.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    The Flyer's punk D couldn't handle Da Hawks and looks like Da Bears put Philly in its place AGAIN! DA BEARS!

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    1. What happened to that fan was horrible and should be one of the main focal points of the week when we remember it.

    2. Refs were DETERMINED to keep the Eagles in the game and they STILL couldn't win.

    3. Julius Peppers is worth every penny. Best Defensive player in the league.

    4. I don't care what anyone says about what Cutler "Shouldn't have done" on that missed interference call, EVERYONE on the team was behind him and it was EXACTLY what he needed to do.

    5. Olin Kruetz is a true badass who protects his players, I LOVE having him teach that shit to the younger offensive line players on the team.

    6. GOT to show love for Olsen. The TD grab was HUGE. Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, he saved an INT right there and made good blocks most of the day. You can really see him developing as a player week to week.

    Oh yeah and props to Andre Johnson for giving that little Bitch Finnegan EXACTLY what he's needed for a while now.

  • In reply to A7Xthebest:

    The illegal hands to the face call on A Adams was terrible. That's when I knew the refs were in the NFL's pocket.

  • In reply to A7Xthebest:

    no way that gets intercepted, Jay threw that where no one could get it except a 6'5 tight end high and in the back of the endzone. it's not a video game. c'mon mang.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Cutler knows: When he gives Olsen a chance to make a play on a ball he WILL be there trying to make a play.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Fuck 'em. And still no flags from the refs. Are the Eagles all Freemasons or what ?

  • In reply to IrishBearsFan:

    The 2nd time it happened the Ref should have stepped in, pointed to 2 or 3 Eagles d-lineman and said "You're excused. The game's over, morons. if you think I'm going stand here while you take free cheap shots your mistaken. Oh, and get your checkbooks ready".

    Of course THAT would have taken a Zebra with BALLS so it didn't happen.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Yup, and did u see Lach approach Cutler after he yelled at the refs? It was like, "Finally, Cutty, you are a man. I take back my earlier remarks about you. We got this shit, don't worry."

    That moment, my friends, might be the turning point for Cutler and our franchise.

  • In reply to KissMyButkus:

    Precisely. It told me two things: first, that Cutler has enough faith in the defense that the 15 yards doesn't worry him--it was more important to let the refs (and his team) know what a crappy non-call that was; second, that the Defense knows that 4 TDs and 0 INTs is the mark of a leader on offense, and they have his back.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    He aint "Norm." He's just a piece a shit that needs to be flushed.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Defense has been consistent all year, but this isn't the same offense that went into the bye. Martz, Cutler and the rest of the group has stepped up their game since the first quarter of the season. There is still room for improvement, but this team is healthy, 8-3 and possibly the best team in the NFL right now.

    How about a little love for Lovie and his crew?

  • In reply to Shady:

    Hell yes! something has happened in the Hallowed Halls of Hallas! Cutler looks like a total ball player, and the o-line has grown some balls.

  • In reply to Shady:

    doc nitty is sad
    phillip rivers not so bad
    give forty five lad?

  • In reply to Shady:

    At this point, "I ain't got no love" for Lovie.

  • boom.

  • Speaking of dogs, that was our third straight win as such. Let's see how we react to being favorites next week. If we handle the Lions on the road, the pressure is really ramped up on our inbred neighbors to the north.

  • In reply to Ufficio:

    Players better not sleep on the Lions. If they have a let down, that team could be us for sure. Hard to see it considering how close they came last time though.

    So many plusses today but a couple of glaring minuses.

    1) The "defender unblocked into our backfield" situation replayed itself AT LEASt 3 times today. Can we please fix this?

    2) The slant pass call on 3rd and 9 with the Eagles out of timeouts
    was WHACKED. That could have been a DEADLY 40+ seconds left on the clock for the Eagles.

  • In reply to Albertintucson:

    Jamarcus Webb is good for at least one a game. He might not be the future RT el jefe expects him to be, but then again he may be. Maybe another week or two under Tice and Webb'll get his shit together.

    Dear Darryl "Moose" Johnston:

    Feel free to SHUT THE HELL UP!
    You weren't professional enough to hide your UTTER disappointment that the Bears defeated the Eagles.

    I hope Assante Samuel appreciated your kissing of his ass.
    Does that come with a 'reach around'?

    Great win. Biggest play of the game was the Harris tip and the pick in the end zone. A possible 14 point turnaround on one play.There can be nothing more demoralizing than the red zone interception. I hope Cutler took notice.

    Beware guys and Gals the lowly Loins. I dont believe in"trap games" i do believe the Bears have played down to lesser teams all season Seahawks,Foreskins are prime examples.

    The Bears offense made it look real easy at times yesterday,that was refreshing.The Loins aint gonna lay down like last years team.

    Looking ahead, we have been called lucky all season. How about the Jets? How many times have they been let back into games that were lost only to have a penalty or stupid play give them a second chance to win. The Pats,and Jets are beatable we will be ready against those teams. The ones that scare me are the Loins and Queens teams we should beat.

    Peter go eat a mayonnaise sandwich and stare at Brett's junk on your laptop, you filth pig.

  • In reply to FQD1911:

    Cutty's throw to Olsen for the TD was an elite QB throw. Go watch it again on the Utube or something, because that ball has to be dead fucking on, the defender was draped on Olsen.

    Fat Basterd pulled out his red flag until he saw he was fucked on the jumbotron, that was a needle throw and a gunslinger play. Had that been picked we'd be crying about Cutty the gunslinger, and that's what we have in him - a guy who can make just about any throw at any time.

    Cutler committed the cardinal sin of saying his arm was better than Elway's when he was a Bronco. I watched a lot of Elway, and I will say this - he equals Elway's arm. I've seen some crazy throws from Cutler this year.

    Neckbeard btw threw for 3 TDs and no picks in a shootout that the Broncos lost to the Rams. Those stupid Denver idiots are going to run neckbeard outta town for the Preacher man, I say we go get him for 2nd string next year, wouldn't that be a hoot.

    Oh man, that's too bad. A haiku would have been epic.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Wow, I've never seen the entire board chugging the kool-aid. Great win. The only reason Cutler gets a pass on his rant was because we won. That was stupid. Screaming at the refs is counter productive. The refs weren't calling anything yesterday (other than a bogus call on Roach on the kickoff). They tackled Adams and mugged Forte and nothing. Let the refs know they missed it and move on. I hate Favre but he has the right approach with the refs. Be friendly, bark at them a little and overall treat them with respect (even if they don't deserve it). The refs help Favre up off the turf all the time. It's sickening but it's smart on Favre's part. We used to have a QB that had no respect for the refs (McMahon) and the refs let him get pummeled every game. We don't need a repeat of that.

    GP, Orton's signed through next year. I can't imagine him being a second stringer for a long time. I'd rather have Cutler but Orton is a winner. It's pretty rare he's the reason you lose the game. I agree those dumb asses in Denver will be screaming for the Virgin. DUH!

  • In reply to CanadaBear:

    Agreed on the Favre/McMahon thing. The refs suck, and need to know it, but you have to do it in a manner that won't get you killed.

    It was good to see that much passion out of Cutler though. Didn't know he had it in him.

    Damn that game was great and once again Pepper's played like the money we paid him for.

    Did ya'll get to see all the fights that the bears were having with the eagles? IT was like every ten mins we started punching the other team or they started punching us.

    Dude, u almost made me choke on spaghetti lol

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Agree with many of ur guys post.

    Vick thru Triple Coverage...thing of beauty from an aesthetic perspective, even though it started Falcons flashbacks...

    Closed in on the score, but the game was never that close. In fact, I've never felt that comfortable for the first 3 quarters all year.

    Marinelli played the numbers - I'm not one for playing "prevent" when we're up by only a score, but when it's 31-13 deep into the second half, and the other team only has 2 time-outs...hell, we practically played prevent the entire game with how far back the Safeties were.

    Wright played much more, but Harris came up big. He almost justified trading for Jamar Williams on that one play alone.

    Our clock management is still lacking. Every time we get a big play, the very next play it seems like we automatically take a time out. I know it takes a while for the players to move down the field and recover from the emotional jubilation of a big play, but those timeouts could cost us in future games.

    But what I'm most impressed with from this victory is Culter's play. According to another blog::

    Cutler uncorks arm: Cutler had completed only one pass for more than 30 yards heading into Sunday

    Oh, keep forgetting to mention... we talked about that needle eye throw to Olsen, but I was actually shocked with that last TD vick threw to selek.

    Holy shit, I actually started cheering and screaming because I thought Harris picked it off again... then stood there quiet and dumbfounded when I realized the fucking guy actually caught it through three Bears.

    Uhhhhhhh... holy shit, did that just happen?

    Impressive throw and catch.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    On Vick's throw to Maclin for the TD in the 2nd, I was disappointed that Child Support didn't break on the ball. Moose Johnson was busy telling us what a stud Lack is, and he gets caught flat footed in his zone as Maclin walks in.

    That's what irks me, is the C2 base and nickel packages are so old, every single NFL player knows right where the zone creases are and how to freeze up the coverage. Every time we get beat, it's shit like flat footed zone coverage that does it.

    And I understand that for Maranelli, his front four were getting pressure, and he did bring Lack on a few MLB blitzes, but he gave up on the blitz at the end and I thought esp. when DJ Moore was brought down, that really messed with Vick's timing and I wish they hadn't gotten back on their heels like that at the end.

  • In reply to gpldan:

    Whose scheme is better though? Best all-round defense in the NFL methinks. Fewer passing TDs than anyone but the Saints (one fewer) hard to argue with that. When you see how the Eagles embarrassed the Redskins - a team that beat us - I'll take the Cover 2 any day.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    yea bro me to. my girlfriend looked at me and said "but they scored"

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Dink the kool aid. Its been a long time since all of us enjoyed a win together and had nothing to bitch about.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    I was the same way. Great throw and catch but also a little lucky. You aren't going to get away with that very often. The time and score dictated taking that chance.

    Everyone is bitching about Banks/King. I read both pieces and didn't think there was too much in there to complain about. Our OL is a work in progress and I can't say they give me a warm fuzzy very often. They're getting better every week but those unblocked rushers are going to kill Cutler one of these games. You almost never see that happen against good OL's. It happened 3 or 4 times yesterday.

    I'm not a big fan of either guy but some of the stuff they write is deserved. Some, not so much. At least they didn't write a Good Jay/Bad Jay reference like Siefert on ESPN. Cutler deserves some of that shit but any other well-known QB throws a bunch of picks and the excuses come out.

    One last thing, I mentioned it yesterday. I love the fact Olin was in there tossing that douchebag Sims aside like a fucking rag doll. Then chopping wood with a couple of DL. Compare that to the Steelers when Seymour punched Big Douche. If someone punched Cutler I guarantee Olin would be all over him like a cheap suit.

He also would have convinced Andy Reid to let him play special teams and certainly would have stopped Hester from taking that kick back 45 yards. Ellis Hobbs would actually have played right tackle tonight instead of corner and there is no way that Peppers or Izzy could have been able to handle his pass blocking skills.

    In fact, if the Eagles had been able to travel back in time to 1962 they could have convinced Chuck Bednarik to travel FORWARD in time, stopping to pick up like Jeremiah Trotter or some shit because it is so unfair if they couldn't suit those guys up this season. Man, we are fucked when we play them again. I hope we don't have to play against a vengeful Jason Peters. That could spell disaster.

    What was his rating - anyone get that? I bet it was higher at the half.

  • Agreed Doc, but the first order of business is to take care of our own business. Just win, baby!

  • Headline from Don Banks tonight on the front page of si.com, "Da Bears? Seriously"

    and...

    "It took until Thanksgiving weekend, but the Bears just won over a bunch of believers. For those skeptics (me included) who have been waiting all season for Chicago to garner a genuine respect-earning victory, it just arrived!"

    Hey Don, eat a dick you assclown. What a douche.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Somebody tell Don the bandwagon left without him.

    He makes one point worth repeating: the NFC has this history of dome teams with home field all the way being basically unbeatable.

    We'd have to win 3 of the next 4 and hope Atlanta loses its wings soon to have a shot at home field, I don't know if the Falcons could be knocked off if they stay home the whole run.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Thought it might have been Artoo for a second ...

  • just got done reading some Eagles blogs. that was some embarassing shit. People truly believing Knox wasn't touched on the onside kick even though it was on HD TV. Blaming our field for the loss. Saying that the eagles worked our defense for 400 yards even though 60-80 yards came in garbage time in the last half of the game. Blaming the loss because they didn't have Samuel. It was some sad shit to read. Oh well, tough luck Philly bitches. Reality Bites.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    First text I received after the game stated "the Bears cheated".

    Typical. NO, idiot, the EAGLES LOST!!!!!

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    The call on the field was "The receiver gave himself up".

    And replays clearly show an Eagle tapping Knox's foot while he was down.

  • With a handle like his it had to get shortened. And R2D2 has too many syllables ... so Artoo. Superfan!

  • Jebus. SD had 1 rushing TD, NO passing TDs, and put up 36 puts on the Dolts.

  • And it's not reviewable so it couldn't be over-turned anyway.

  • yahoo gave cutler & our beloved Bears MAD love. very very shocked (and happy) also:

  • "Shows you what they know about football." would have been a better line, but hey, he's a linebacker.

    No way I'd like to play Atlanta in Atlanta though, Abraham running around Webb all day. 19-1 is hard to argue with. Their only really tough game remaining is against the Saints, but it's in Fort Atlanta ... they're odds-on to have home field advantage in the playoffs. Then again, they've had an easy schedule - the only decent wins were beating the Ravens at home, the Saints away (and I guess the Packers at home). The Eagles ripped them apart.

    Anyone know who gets the NFC West teams in the playoffs? It would be so sweet to kick the crap out of the Seahawks.

    Liking that we have to play the Pats and the Jets on the Bears' bog though ... at least we'll find out where we stand for superbowl form. Jackson is injured again, Crayton is injured, Tolbert left the game and Gates is injured - so it doesn't look like we'll have to worry about meeting that defense in the big one.

    I also vote for avoiding the Falcons in their house.
