They were down 20 points. They got out of their gameplan and Rex tried to make plays. He should have checked it down more yes, but I don't blame him for trying to make a play. They've been torching teams with the deep ball all year, so why would they stop now? :-? Thats a big reason why they're 6-0 right now. Berrian has tons of talent and speed. He can get behind most corners, and it stretches the defense, and opens up the run game.

7 possesions in the first half and they ran on first down once.
3 turnovers on 1st downs in the first half. it was disgusting.

turner got cocky by trying to come out and blow the cards out of the water, instead of playing ball control bears football. turner can thank that d for saving his hyde tonight.


exactly! am i the only one screaming for the bears to run the freaking football?

Bottom-line:

The Bears are the better overall team for sure.

The Cardinals won the offensive battle, but couldn't put the nail in the coffin (which was not Leniart's fault).

I think Matt Leinart showed flashes of brilliance, putting up over 200 yards and 2 TDs with no INTs vs. the Bears (and his fumble was the OL fault). His poise is AMAZING.

The Bears ultimately dominated on D and special teams, and Rex Grossman is thrilled his former teammate from the Swamp was able to bring back that PR for a TD. He saved Rex's butt.

FINAL: 24-23... but in all reality the Cardinals played the better football game... while the Bears are the better football team.

Yup that's what i thought. Did anyone catch that shot of him staring down urlacher as he went under center only to torch him on the play with 12 yd strike to boldin. that was sweet.

the bears can thank Rackers for this win.

anyone else think the cards can chalk up this loss to horrible play calling.

They couldnt run all game, yet how many times on 3rd and 6 or 7 did they try to run the ball. In the red zone, 2 times they ran on 3rd and had to settle for a field goal.

And then in the second half, they went into a conservitive shell and instead of trying to finish off the game and win, they just tried not to lose. Leinert was doing well in the first half, they should have let him loose again in the second half to do his thing.

Yeah, you can blame it on rackers missed FG, but the coaches for arizona should have done a better job of trying to put more points on the board, and then the FG wouldnt have been an issue.

I heard Denny Green lost his mind at the postgame press conference. Man, I'd go crazy too. At least he's not coaching the raiders. Its just that their expectations were way out of control. Theyre not even close to the Rams or the Seahawks, and they never were.

Denny was hilarious, you could see smoke coming out of his ears.

I agree, the playcalling was terrible. Chicago has an awesome D, and they had 8 guys in the box most of the game. Arizona would put out 1 WR sometimes and run right into the middle of the 8 man front. Brilliant! Chicago had a tough time stopping the pass, I don't know why they didn't stay with it more. Get Edge the ball on some sweeps and screens! No one's going to run through 8 of the toughest defensive players in the game. Edge should've had 6 catches this game instead of all those carries. Brutal.
