The Bears sure did deserve to win this one. Not a great game by Grossman, but our running game and defence really bailed us out.

Can't wait till the super bowl match up.

GO BEARS GOOO!! :-D

Congrats to the Bears and their fans. Your D & running game got the job done despite Grossman. Feels like the 2000 Ravens all over again.

Don't say that just yet.

Drew Brees and Co. aren't done yet. I wouldn't be surprised if they came back.


I agree. It's not likely and I wouldn't expect it, but it very well could haaaa........never mind. INT by Vasher. They're done. :-t


Boy was I wrong. Chicago laid a smackdown on NO today.

I'm not "coming up with excuses." It happened dude, two horrible calls... the fumble and the BS offensive pass interference.



Whiners are funny. :~(

I make it a point not the blame the officials for a loss. They are never the cause, but thats a common excuse for people to use when their team lost. Obviously, they made a few bad calls, but that didn't cost NO the game. They lost the turnover battle and made critical mistakes in critical situations. The Bears didn't and thats why they won. ;-D

Well they were playing the Eagles last week and unfortunately for the Eagle faithful anyone can have a power running game aganinst them.

The Saints did what they do best.

Pass

They just did a terrible job of it today and combined with a great performance from the Bears D the result was ..well... a massacare.

I just cruised through this thread and I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the Bears are STILL not getting respect, but I kinda am. What kind of funny stuff are you people smoking? 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. :-? :*)
