He was a big back, good size, with him and Cook in at the same time it gave our D-Coordinator the option of playing either bump and run or zone due to both of those guys physical attributes-Hey, injuries are always perennially a problem for a lot of teams in the NFL, that is no secret, gotta have depth.

Question 2 you is which Seattle team is gonna show up on Sunday against you guys, they are this season's Jekyll and Hyde team thus far, it seems every year there is a team like that in the NFL.

It better be the Seattle team that cant win on the road. Lynch helps them a little bit but besides the TE, they have nothing on offense. We just have to wear down the defense, not play Todd Collins and voila!! 5-1!!!

We should at the least split with Vikes, we can beat Skins, Detroit, Buffalo. Philly, Miami,Jets, Patroits and Green Bay can go either way. At the very least we can be 9-7, 10-6, 11-5 thats enough to get in and then anything can happen.

I agree this great start you guys got really puts you in a good place, 9-7 could make it to the post-season, 10-6 may win this division.

Other than Atlanta noone has really shown that they are at the forefront of the NFC(no dissrespect to you guys, well maybe a little), it is still wide open. Some team will step up though, eventually.

I'd have to say Atlanta is the class of the conference so far. Bears just keep chugging along.

Pete Carroll has a style of coaching that the players respond to it seems. His last stint in the NFL was fairly successful as he took his team to the post-season twice I believe. You can never underestimate one of his teams,he just needs to be more consistent.

And another 4-1 team bites the dust, who wants to step forward and take control in thIS conference? In the AFC a couple of elite teams have emerged, not so in the NFC-YET.

One more thing-WHAT ON EARTH WAS Seattle thinking up 10 with 2 minutes to play and they kick the ball directly to Hester-WHY?????????? Punt the ball out of bounds, that was monumentally stupid! SERIOUSLY, WHY WOULD ANY TEAM DO THAT?

Hey Bleeds good to hear from ya'! That has got to test a guy's intestinal fortitude for sure, to SUSTAIN THAT TYPE OF INJURY AND REHAB IT ENOUGH TO get back to that level of playing and in the toughest league and sport there is, only to have to do it all over again! Feel bad for him, in his case the saying "what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger" IS VERY APROPOS.

I dont know. They have been saving him on offense(Cutler cant get him the ball anyway) to keep him fresh for returns.

Washington next-Washington's Pass D ranks 31st right now. McNabb has 6 passes completed FOR more than 40 yds. this season-just an FYI.

BUT Washington beat GB in OT then took a very good INDY team down the stretch and almost beat them.They will be a tough out for Chicago for sure.
