    I've found myself saying that after nearly all our wins this year!

    As Dan Jiggetts said after the game Sunday: ''I'd rather the Bears be a 4-1 team that look better than they may be rather than a 1-4 team that is better than their record.''

    edit: Also some good news, Jay passed his concussion test last week, both the one done by team doctors and an independent doctor and it was a Coaches decision to give him the weekend off to re-charge. So he'll definitely be playing on Sunday v Seattle.

    Well that was a comedy of errors. :(
    As much as I hate to say it, if it wasn't for our defence we'd have no offence.

    Good job by Lovie and the crew upstairs on the challenge and non-challenge mix up.

    And how about sexy rexy being on the winning team :D

    Go outside, spin around three times, spit on the ground and utter a curse at the Packers. When you are finished, ask permission to come to come back in :p

    Looking good so far. Up 14-13 at the end of the third quarter.
    Jay Cutler averaging 10yards a carry and 11.2 yards per pass. Go Jay, Go!

    was at the game today. my first nfl game

    good fun!

    tight game last night, how we still have a half decent record is beyond me. fluked it last night on a PAT miss i mean how jammy can u get?

    debate of the night last night was i cutler a bad qb or is it the offensive line that is terrible. i like cutler myself, think he can become a good qb but he just has no protection. thank god for our defence.

    Bit of both to be honest. Never actually liked the trade but that piss poor line doesn't help

    Just saw on the bears roster that Desmond Clark is listed as the 2nd string Long Snapper?? If Pat Mannelly goes down, surely Olin could step in, or even Rob Garza at a push.

    Or maybe I'm just under-estimating his ability considering he's been listed at fullback instead of TE since McKie was released...

    I know it would be pretty unlucky for something to happen considering he's only in for a dozen plays at most per game but still....

    Des was snapping on special teams pre-season against Oakland, it was hilarious. I also thought that Olin could do it. I'm sure after Des' pre season performance it would be Olin/Garza that would come in. Just hasn't been updated. Manning and Knox are 1 & 2 on the depth chart for kickoff returns too but that has changed.

    Des Clark CANNOT longsnap.

    Congrats to Patrick Mannelly. Last night was his 200th game as a Bear

    That was a great win last night

    We're still not going to get any respect from opponents or the media. Trent Dilfer, last night on ESPN, blamed the Eagles cleet size on the reason why we won. They were wearing the wrong cleets for playing on the Soldier Field grass apparently.

    Yes, really. The man has some personal issue with the Bears.

    And then Deion over on NFLN Gameday after the Eagles CB slipped on the Johnny Knox TD: ''It ain't the shoes baby! It's the route!'' :D.

    Haters be hating, whatever!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,255 ✭✭✭ davetherave


    The scoreline says differently though, and when the final whistle goes that's all that counts. :)

    I was happy enough with all parts of the team though.
    Jay getting a ~147ish passer rating
    Only gave up four sacks against a good defence, Knox, Hester and Bennett did a great job recieving and how about Olsen with that jumpball averaging 17.6 yards per grab.

    Defence got four sacks for 40 yards and 7 hits on Vick.

    And interestingly enough,
    Paid Attendance: 62,147, Stadium Capacity: 61,500 <--Does not compute :D:D

    Rick Morrissey of the Chicago Sun-Times on the Bears' 31-26 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles: "This had nothing to do with luck or a soft schedule or sidelined adversaries or the possibility that Michael Vick's body clock was set to Kazakhstan time. This had everything to do with a Bears team that, finally given an opportunity against a real, live, talented opponent, rose to the occasion and made us naysayers say, in so many words, yea. With a 31-26 victory over the Eagles on Sunday, the Bears proved they belong among the top teams in the NFL"

    Detroit has a deceptively poor record, it doesnt really reflect the quality of their playing as of late, so that was a pretty good win. 9-3 is not bad a record, top of the Division and 2nd in the league behind Atlanta. Next week against the Pats will be the real test. with luck our momentum will sustain and NE's shortened week will give us an edge.

    They had a special weather forecast from Accuweather on ESPN Sunday Countdown and the forecaster was saying that this may be the worst weather that you will ever see a NFL game being played in:eek:

    Can't wait... I LOVE SNOW GAMES!!:)

    Being a life long Bear's fan, who is utterly tired of the Brett Favre circus, I have to admit that I smiled when Favre went down.

    Someone needs to explain to me why he was allowed to play last night after spending the entire week listed as 'out' on the Injury List ? It just boggles my mind how the rules are changed to accommodate him.

    Congratulations to the Bears on winning the 'Norris' division in one of the strangest seasons that I can remember. You would swear that Forest Gump was writing the script when it comes to the Bears.......'you never know what you're gonna get' from week to week.
