Bench Davis and start Rideau...he was the best WR in preseason, wasn't he ? Lovie, wake the hell up!!! A win is a win and a loss is a loss, doesn't mather how close the games were!

"1bearsfan"]I would like to see Earl Bennett get some opportunities at receiver.
Can't disagree. We used a third round draft choice on him, he should be contributing. Also, why not give Mark Bradley some opportunities? The man is ultra-talented. Couldn't hurt, could it?

Mark Bradley ultra-talented? He hasn't shown even flashes of it for the last two seasons... either he isn't getting open, or not making the catches. It seems to me the best combination of receivers is 1) a burner who stretches the defense; 2) a Steve Largent-type receiver who runs precise routes and has great hands; 3) a tight end who can block linebackers and still catch outlet passes; and 4) a slot receiver who's sneaky fast and elusive. This year's Bears? 1) Hester's injured; 2) position still vacant (Booker no-show?), but a strong bid being made by Brandon Lloyd; 3) covered fairly well by Olsen and Desmond Clark; and 4) should be Rashied Davis, but probably will be either Adrian Peterson or Matt Forte for the rest of the season. Bradley might be fast enough for #1, but ya gotta catch the ball. By all means, get Bennett some snaps.

Bradley hasn't been on the field enough the last two seasons to show his talent (injuries and lovie's doghouse). Did you see him play before he tore up his knee in Detroit? He was our best big play threat. He can actually make plays after he catches the ball (yac). He just needs the oppurtunities and practice time.

Not a good sign when your safety leads in tackles.

Well, apparently Bradley's seat was more hot.

1-3, no matter what the Bears do. Philly is in another class.

This has to be most frustrated I have been in years with this team. They should be 3-0! The offensive play-calling and crunch-time play is TERRIBLE. Oh Bears, I wish I could quit you!

Davis is not guilty of lacking concentration on the catches missed - he's guilty of "hearing footsteps" behind him. I've watched virtually every minute of this season (thank-you satellite) and it appears that he only drops when about to get smeared.
On a more important note, where has our pass rush gone? And, what's up with Urlacher's lack of production?

My take on the big bad bears D,over Hyped over payed and over the hill, I mean c'mon you have the lead the last two games and you turn into paper when the going gets tough in the final four minutes in the fourth quarter of each of those games so much for the self proclaimed we are a top five deffense I will say this at least the offense has been doing a little something but so much for that cause our DEFFENSE SUCKS,I'm out RMJ

good thing we didn't keep that surehanded Mike Hass...
Ill never understand why people think Hass was so good. He dropped some pretty easy passes in pre-season. Rideau was way better.

well, they just signed him to practice squad...so they see something, I myself dont understand why not Rideau. But I heard Hass is great in practice.
