McNabb, Westbrook fuel surging Eagles

His vertical might not be so high anymore, but Donovan McNabb had enough spring in his legs to leap several times in a row, pumping his fist with every bound as teammate Brian Westbrook crossed the goal line. Full Story

I don't think that Berrian earned all of that money he was paid this year!

Don't underestimate this team Jeff - they are also pretty good chokers in the regular season. They really tried to lose to the Giants third string last week but weren't even good enough to pull that off.

They have a lot of good pieces, but they are not going anywhere until they get their QB situation resolved. Jackson and Frerotte are both horrible. I could see them bringing in Grossman to compete for a job.

VIKINGS and your fans that post on our site, nananana, hey hey, good bye....
(btw - not a very good job of representing the division)

wish i could say the Bears would have done better, but, we already showed our metal in the HOUSTON game, and Brian Urlacher tolds us it's our fault.

so there ya go.
the world revolves around the bears i guess.

it's so nice to be a BEAR ,,, just ask Ron Rivera.

not sure about that, but,

I really enjoyed watching the Vikings get Dominated and Beat Up!! How about the 42 Million Dollar man in Berrian? He really dominated with 2 catches for 36 yards! What a Joke! He is not a Complete receiver and never will be. He is afraid of contact! So these tough defensive teams just slap him around the whole game! The Williams' cheating out of their Suspensions,may have barely gotten them the Division. But Next year they will be without them for the first 4 games. Just punishment will be served next year on the Williams". Who I consider to be Tainted players from now on! All their success was probably because of Steroids! Take Care Fellow Bear Fans. BEAR DOWN!! GO BEARS,GOOD LUCK IN 2009!! I BELIEVE!!

Babich still there?

or promoted ????

i understand he's had two promotions last two years ... is highest paid asst.

Bears wise up,
you never let friends work together ...

it's business rule number one ...

nor too many family member's either.

come on Rivera's Defense was 5th in 2006

then Babich 26th, and 21th respectively last two years.

we fire Rivera, but, not Babich?

integrity...and accountability

that is all fans want.

a word to the MaCaskeys ...
better be careful running this franchise into the groud, you think in the economic times to come
ppl are going to support this like they always have .... think again,
the next generations will play sports with their XBOX, NINTENDO, and WII.

I am not going to fault Lovie because he hired a friend. All coaches hire their friends as long as they share the same philosophy. I will fault Lovie for not firing his friend though. If he does not fire Babich, then Lovie should be fired.

While Lovie did fire Rivera, Ron wanted to become a head coach and he thought the next step would be to learn and run the 3-4 defense. Alot of teams are running the 3-4 and he needed to learn it to make him a better head coaching candidate. He now runs a successful 3-4 in San Diego and should be a good head coaching option.

while it is true axiom that coaches like to have (hire) coaches that will follow their plan ~~ it would be a bad habit to call your co workers friends. that's all i am saying.

Yet, surely at that level they are friends with many fellow coaches ... that only makes sense.

But, as you pointed out, if Lovie doesn't fire Babich, or reduce his role, then, friendship surely has gotten in the way of professional duty.

as far as Ron, as his aspirations, that didn;t mean we had to let him go ... in theory this time should have lept status quo after that 2006 season. Making a move like that, very strange....

and we all know why, Lovie is stubborn.(or a fool)

who we drafting????
what position do you think 1st round?

is it a no brainer no matter where we pick????

First round should be WR or help on the defensive line. Those are the biggest glaring weaknesses. I am almost willing to stick with our line IF we fire Babich. I am almost willing to give the line the benefit of the doubt based on pre-Babich performance. But if there is a D-lineman rated higher than any WR when the Bears draft, then I would go there and draft a WR in the 2nd round.

We also need DB help, but teams don't draft DBs in early rounds unless there is a true shutdown corner. So, we can wait a few rounds before drafting a DB.

Your thoughts?

Can u draft a HEAD coach that works on Sundays?

#17 Jan 5, 2009
same ... WR or one heck of a DE lineman
but the DE/DT has to be, just as you said, rated much higher ...

WR 1st or 2nd ... makes sense.

F/A signings or plans not sure what they are thinking or who's available yet...

i think we all think Babich reduced role is highest priority .. 9-7 job with that hole at WR does lead me to believe i've been way to hard on Lovie.

I'm just confused by the way he coaches on Sundays. But, maybe he needs time, just like Cowher took 14 years ... to get it done

Yet, 9-7 easily could have been 9-7.
Win some we lost, lose some we lost ...
so 9-7 we are. Lovie's around for at least one more year.

The Lion coach, well, well take it over BB.

seriously, this team just needs some attitude.
and the most important point i'e ever said

a SCHEME ....

The Vikings' defense stepped up big time yesterday. They gave the offense opportunity after opportunity. The offense was not able to do what they wanted against Philly's defense. But Tarvaris Jackson has come a long, long way since being benched. I'd take him over Orton or Wrecks in a heartbeat.

The Bears would have been blown out by the Eagles much worse than the Dallas Cowboys were. The Bears' O-line can't even run block as well as the Vikings'. Orton would have been flattened early and often. So enjoy this one, I guess, Bears fans. I don't see your team even having the opportunity to lose a playoff game anytime soon.

We all knew the Vikings have a good D-line and running game, but we also knew they have a horrible QB and that would be their downfall. They will never go anywhere without upgrading the QB position first. You would take Jackson over Orton or Rex? Ha, and thats why you lost yesterday. Philadelphia was daring him to throw, and he was terrible.

We already beat Philadelphia once this year, who knows what would have happened in a rematch. The Bears were not good enough to make the playoffs, so we'll never know. We do know that the Vikings couldn't beat them.

The Bears defeated both the Eagles and Vikings this season.
