      I know it's early. But the rest of the NFC North looks so bad @ week 2 that I can't help but smile. I was hoping week one was just a new offense against a great defense. Looks like I was right.

      Orton scared me the first game, looked decent enough against the Lions. Being against the Lions is the only reason why I'm still not super impressed.

      Thomas Jones ran like the Thomas Jones I've been a fan of. Found the holes (thanks o-line) and created afterwards.

      Muhsin looks to be Orton's favorite target, and who could blame him. The guy is big with great hands, great catch in the endzone yesterday.

      The defense is what is going to help this team win anything, as it did yesterday. Mike Brown is back and badder than ever, Urlacher is NOT overrated, Nathan Vasher, pardon the cliche, just has a nose for the ball, and the D line is deep. If the core stays healthy (like Brown and Urlacher and a couple linemen) then this is going to be a great defensive unit for a long long time.

      So, let's hear it for the team atop the NFC North!

      I don't know what to think after watching the Bears in the last two games. Which team will show up for each game from here on out?

      After yesterday:

      The Lions seem to suck, but they beat Green Bay last week.
      Green Bay looks real weak after losing to Cleveland.
      Minnesota isn't even worth talking about so far.

      Maybe nobody will win this division this year.

      If they beat the bungles, then i might give a little 'spect.

      Too bad GB doesn't play them earlier, we need an easy one to get back on track

      Didn't you guys lose to the Lions that we crushed? And didn't you just lose at home to a first year coach and TRENT DILFER! I say good day!

      Most poinst scored by the Bears since 01??

      Losing Brown last year killed this team, if that defense stays healthy I like our chances in the weak division.

      Why do you do this to yourself??

      You know that this team will enter a tailspin and then I'll have to dredge this thread up and bust your balls about it.

      Then again, the NFC North is a suck fest...this could be your year!

      That is ok GB started out 1-4 last year and pulled off the division.

      How many games should Mike Brown be suspended for that hit on Marcus Pollard? I'd say no less than 4. That was an intentional head-to-head hit and the guy was smiling afterward. What a tool.

      As long as safey's have no fear of their cheap shots being returned, they will continue to be reckless on the field. Linebackers aren't throwing cheap shots because they know a running back or tight end will lay them out, when given the opportunity, for retaliation. Gotta hit them where it hurts - the pocketbook and gametime.

      "[Brown] gave me five after I got up,'' Pollard said. "That showed me, 'I didn't try to intentionally knock you out.' I don't see him as being a dirty player. You can make that statement about some other safeties around the league, but not him.

      "It's a great play on his part. I'm sure Joey would have liked to have thrown the ball a little different. I would have liked to have caught it. It's just playing football, and I don't have any hard feelings toward the guy at all.''

      All I'm asking for is one playoff win this year. After 20+ years as a Bears fan I know what to expect but when the Bears have focused this year they've looked really good .

      a playoff win? I think the entire bears fan base would rejoice at just the possibility of making the playoffs or an 8-8 season

      ....don't mind me...i'm just bitter

      With all due respect to the Special Olympics.......the NFC is almost the NFLs equivalent. It's really that bad.

      I'm sick about how the pack is playing and I'm guessing the Cadillac will be spending lots of time parking in the end zone tomorrow.....


    27. 09-25-2005 10:14 PM #27
      da bears have officially returned to earth - how about the fans?


      and its not just the nfc north it is the entire nfc

      the eagles had a hell of a time against oakland a now 0-3 team in the afc

      Who the hell gave Orton Culpepper tapes to study?!

      OK, so the first one wasn't really his fault, but 4 is still pretty bad. A couple misplays by the CBs turned into TDs, the score wasn't that bad considering the 6 turnovers. Ah well, at least they have plenty to reflect on going into the bye week.

      No joke. It really could have been much worse with all of the TOs. Who would have thought that Cincy would be a real team. Next thing you know I'll be seeing the Icky Shuffle. . Oh well, Orton has potential, with time I think he'll develop nicely. Muhammed however is my least favorite WR. I lived in Charlotte last year and I've never seen so many people happy to see a man go.

      Care to elaborate? The man produced year in and year out, and he seems to be a favorite target of Orton.

      It just seems that he drops a lot of very catchable balls. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad the Bears have a decent WR and play maker. He had an amazing year in Carolina last year but it was hinted at by locals and talk radio down there that it was due to it being his contract year. The Bears could have def. done much worse. When Mussin wants to he can be a very reliable reciever, sometimes I think he just loses his focus.

      I say that because no one will give them props even if they go 7-0. Given that GB is hell-bent on making me into an alcoholic, I need something to get excited about.

      Get excited about being the worst team in the NFL and having Leinart as your Favre replacement. I might even join you there soon if there is no improvement over the next few games over here.
