But, who cares! It was an awesome play and Urlacher did help, but Vasher was the one that really made it happen.

If he didn't do that pirowet (sp?) move on the 15 yard line, the play wouldn't have had a chance.

That is about the coolest play I have ever seen. Vasher's move reminded me of watching Barry Sanders play. Maybe they need to move him to offense!

Yeah I thought the very last block, (I think) Lance Briggs threw
could have been clipping on the kicker but it wouldn't have effected the play. Who knows if it was seen or not.
And I totally agree, that spin on the 15 dropped like seven guys as if they were dominoes! I've never seen anything like it, almost comical like the first quarter FG that took a sharp 45 mph turn west mid flight and missed by 50 ft.

and lol @ NO not losing on their bye week

Hah I'm sorry I guess my avatar offended you :(

No one could ever take away or "not commend" Vasher for his amazing 108 yd return, HIS name will be #1 in the NFL record book until someone returns 109 yds. I just love seeing guys do the small things that make the big plays happen.

I remember last year (maybe two years ago) a DB Roosevelt Williams intercepted a B Favre red zone pass at the end of the 2nd quarter and all that was between him, teammate RW McQuarters and the endzone was a Green Bay DE that managed to stay with them and instead of throwing a block, RW backed up and selfishly called for the lateral! Williams got tackled at the GB 10 or so and after RW fixed his sweet locks he made a bitch face like Williams should have shoveled him the ball. What an asshole! I'll never forget that.

Sorry if you read that whole thing =\[/b]

Another great Bear return was Keith Traylor returning a pass for a TD with about 5 or 6 Bears practically holding him up (he weighs 350 or so). Traylor falls down in the endzone, everybody's jumping on him and he looks like he's just trying to take a breath without puking. I laughed my ass off and of course my wife thought I was insane - must be a wife/girlfriend thing.

HAHAH I remember that play! Actually I think he ran out of gas just before he made it to the endzone but Jimmy Miller (LOL!) turned it into a touchdown.

Urlacher did make some sic blocks! If you watch the replay, he throws some blocks, disappears from the screen while Vasher continues to run like 10 yards, then he's baaaaaack! I was just hoping Vasher didn't run out of gas...his legs looked like rubber that last 5 yards or so!

And I love that Traylor return...talk about running out of gas. Go big man, go!

Urlacher is what stuck in my mind about that return as well.
The whole time I'm thinking Bobby Boucher is out there leading the Muddogs to the title.
He was manic is keeping up with the play and trying to clear the way for Vasher.

Didn't Chris McAlister do the same thing, same distance like 3 years ago against Denver?

EDIT: It was 107 yard return.
