I hear what you're sayin, and I'm not saying not to respect the team you're playing against, but most people on here are acting like The Bears are push overs and aren't capable of beating any of the teams they would face in the playoffs. I'm just tired of these fair weather fan's that would rather have a "good draft pick" (one has one middle of the first round draft pick took a team to the super bowl) then make it to the playoffs and have a chance to do something this year. Just like you all can make arguments for the Bears losing, I can make arguments for the Bears to win. I don't care how the season goes, if you make it to the big dance and win, then its a win. I'd rather have an up and down season and win the super bowl like the Giants then have a perfect regular season and lose in the super bowl like New England. What about you??????????If you fear Arizona, but not Carolina, Tampa or Dallas, you are not paying attention and may know nothing about the NFL. Just because you almost beat someone earlier in the season does not mean you shouldn't fear them in the playoffs. Remember 2005? The Bears dominated Carolina in the regular season. What happened in the playoffs?(And no, it wasn't Rex's fault.) Carolina with DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart in the backfield, and Steve Smith running pass patterns, is an entirely different team from the one that the Bears "almost beat" in September. Dallas is immensely talented, their offseason issues aside, and would present the Bears with nightmarish matchup problems. And Tampa's defense is among the best in the NFC. They can beat anyone in the NFC, anytime.
Any of those teams would likely embarrass the Bears in the playoffs. And that's on top of the sure-fire losses that would come for the Bears against either Arizona or New York.

Great post!!! People are getting way to high on Orton, just like they were way too down on Rex. It seems like all these people want it right now and wont give players time to develop. I remember a time when rookie QB's sat on the bench the first 2 years before they even started a game.

that's the problem once your drafted and paid that kind of money people are impatient. i just don't understand people these days. i mean really where's the class? rex should have never came to chicago. why? rex is the kind of qb that has a lot of potential and big play ability. with his potential to throw the ball you need good wrs, wrs that make come with a premium. this is money chicago was not willing to spend because of there theory defense, defense, defense. in 06 there were a few positions like right tackle and a right guard that could have made the difference on offense for us to win that sb. rex was sacked way too much for a qb that was finally playing his first full season. rather, than resign thomas again spending money they opt to go with benson. if that wasn't worst they had the worst offensive draft in 07 to help the offense. the only player contributing from the draft on offense is beekman. it's a shame when you think about it. so now we have orton starting and now everyone wants them to go out and build a stellar offense around a avg qb. i just don't get halas hall. i mean why draft a throwing qb that has potential and then blame him for his inability to be as effective because you won't draft good players to help him. if the vikes can spend 42 mill to have berrian run down the field what does that say about them. they want to win period something the bears never wanted to do while rex was starting at qb. just sad

Nick Roach will be continue to "bloom". He didn't start playing organized football until his sophomore year in high school. He was an offensive player primarily until his senior year, then he finally started playing linebacker. His linebacker skills began to develop once he got to Northwestern. If he can stay healthy (just like anyone else), I think you will see great things from him in the future. Look at how much he has improved in a short span of time!

I shouldn't have to guess, Mgray. I'd rather you enlighten us with your statistical analysis, rather than just another blowhard anti-Rex putdown. So just how many games have the Bears won with Rex as their starting QB in which the defense or special teams (and I'm assuming you are excluding Robbie Gould from this discussion) have scored no points? And how does that compare to what Orton has done? See how this game is played? You claim you know something, but provide no evidence to demonstrate that you do. I challenge you to prove your big talk. And now you either respond or I will conclude that you are an id.iot.
