This Bears team more than anything else resembles the 2001 Ravens - except the Bears can actually score.
This was a smackdown. This was an annihilation. The Saints were barely in this game, and when it came down to it the Bears TOOK this game. Nobody - not the Saints, not the Refs - NOBODY gave this game to the Bears. They earned it. Period.
For those of you griping about the officiating being biased against the Saints I want you to tell me this - how in the world does a "biased" officiating crew let the Saints get away with a Pick Play on Bush's 88-yard TD? Yeah the refs made mistakes, but they made poor calls against both teams. Stop whining and take it like men. The Saints got the tails whupped. It had nothing to do with the officiating.
Excellent points - some people just can't be gracious in defeat. Every time their team loses, it's if, if, if, if - ad infinitum! I guess if we take it to it's illogical conclusion, if only the Bears hadn't scored those 39 pts, the Saints would have won that game.
