Why anyone would have started a Seattle offensive player is beyond me. SA wouldn't have made a difference at all. He's been mediocre so far this year, and he wouldn't have made up for this kind of domination.

Face it, Seahawk Alliance, the best team in the NFL just rolled you over. Theres not too much shame in losing to them.

Had to watch the game via TiVo... just watched it now. That's the worst, ain't it?

Well, that was fun. :) No more sour grapes... Alexander could have had an impact on the game, but I think the Chicago offense did enough to win, even if you granted Alexander a great game. I think it's silly to blame it on his injury, and to put ANY weight on the idea of the Bears not practicing as hard for the run. If anything, having to gameplan for 4 WR sets and for a totally different rb gave them MORE work to deal with during the week.

Both are great teams, but it looks pretty clear that Chicago is the more dominant team... a very good looking offense combined with arguably the best defense in the game right now.

Your gut, although loaded with beer, brats, cheese doodles and dorritos, can often make more sense than those who give advice.

Best part from a Chicago fan standpoint is that the Bears mostly were just using their front four. They are so good, both quick and powerful, that it seems like the Bears run a lot of blitzes. They don't. The Bears have one of the best Defensive lines that I've ever seen. Even their 2nd stringers would be starting on most teams. They are the Brick House. Each Bear is a brick and together they make the House.

Draws and screens won't help. You would just bring Urlacher into the action more and give him more tackles and a probable pick. He's there to shut down the draws and screens.
Go Bears!

This is right. The Bears DL was just blowing the SEA OL off the line of scrimmage, especially in the second half. They faked a lot of blitzes in the first half but dropped back most of the time.

To twisted - yeah it was pretty bad Hass tackled Manning Jr, but the play that ticked me off as a Bear fan was that Hass scramble in the red zone, I think in the fourth quarter. The guy was as slow as molasses and he picked up the first down on third and long. The Bears must have blown containment on that one.

Hmmm..I'd actually give you props for your yang if you were actually around prior to the end game whistle.


Because I would have been wasting my time here instead of watching my Bears whoop your Hawks? Sorry, REAL football is more important than Cafe chat.


If you don't know by now that I'm just busting balls, then you haven't been paying attention to the last couple of years...sheesh!
