Too bad they're not in the NFC South, they would be in contention for a playoff spot. The hot topic is the chaos in management and OC Kromer crying and admitting he was the one who criticized Cutler to the media.

Oh joy, DeMarco Murray fractured his left hand late in the game, not sure if he will be able to play with a cast or not.

Both the Bears and Saints are 5 and 8, but I'll go with the Saints since they actually have more on the line. Still, it's a crap shoot.

While I agree with both of you, if it had been any other rookie quarterback it might not have even been covered at all. Both ints that I saw were rookie mistakes, particularly the second one. But in the after game press conference he seemed very perceptive of the mistakes he had made.

I sort of like the kid and his attitude. I think he has some good skills but is coming to realize that some of the plays he could get away with at the college level won't fly in the NFL where the competition is better, quicker and faster. He'll learn.

Actually, this is the kind of situation where the Bears often shine. They're mathematically eliminated and should be letting the youngsters play in order to evaluate them for next year and to add to their losses to move up in the draft. Instead, they're go all out and perhaps win, spoiling NO's playoff chances.

Da Bears!

That Seahawks' win yesterday made Russell Wilson the QB with the most wins (34, with two more games to go) in his first three career seasons in NFL history--beating Dan Marino and Matt Ryan. Wasn't he #1 (or tied for #) for the first two seasons as well? In his rookie season he tied Peyton Manning for most TDs in his rookie season, and would have beat Manning for what looked to be a makeable passing TD but preferred to have the RB run it in instead, as I recall. Well done, #3. (Having a stellar defense and other talent on the team helps tremendously too.)

After what happened this week with Cromer I think the players are going to just pack it in and go through the motions

If that leads to dumping the general manager, coach, offensive coordinator, defensive coordinator and Cutler, it's a good thing.......


Go Hawks!
Go Bulls!

It could have been worse. You could have misspelled the entire teams name by writing it out as the "Chicago Bare's". Now that would require an apology to the entire team.

Have you ever seen such an impotent offense? It has been like that all year except for garbage time last week. An absolute disaster... Right up there with Bucs, Jets, and Titans.

It's really sad when the only thing they can compliment is the punter has been booming the ball.
