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!'' .

Haters be hating, whatever!

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

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.

Time for Urlacher's revenge!





Also, there's a nice bit of snow in Chicago. Hopefully more to come in the next 5 hours. I love snow games.

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

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.
