Did anyone else notice ALex Brown rushing to a point 10 yards behind McNabb every single play of the game? And then he makes the crucial play f the game and accolodes all around. Maybe he shoudl play the entire game next time.
Maybe rotating with Anderson makes him a better player. His knock in college was that he takes plays off. He doesn't anymore because he's well-rested.

Finally I have something to agree with you on. You cannot figure this Bear team out. They could go into Detroit next week and lay an egg or blow them out. What they must do is to be more aggressive and creative on offense to keep drives going. The defense needs to be off the field more. Three and outs situations and turnovers beats up the defense and causes injuries. Pretty scary.

Yes, a mystery, but they're OUR mystery!
Tough, tough ballgame last night. Difficult for anyone to look good in that one. When I review the whole game, it's apparent that if Orton was just a tiny bit more accurate on a couple of throws, it might not have been close.
But it was, and boy, was I proud of the defense on that goal line stand. With the defense as nicked up as it was, I thought the guys stepped up their games a little and really put out some effort.
So while they may yet be a mystery, I was proud of the Bears last night. As long as they play like that, I won't have much to complain abou - win or lose.

It is obvious that sports writers don't know much about football or any other sport

If anyone thinks the Bears would have won that game if Westbrook was playing, your crazy. Now if the Bears can just keep playing teams whose best players are hurt or can't play we win the division. Yea, Go Bears

I could play your game too. If only the Bears had a healthy Tommie Harris! The Bears have 2 victories against top teams and they were facing the likes of Peyton Manning and Donavan McNab.

once again you just seem to sit here and bash the bears as usual. The Bears made plays when they needed too and got the win. They can play with anybody when they are running on all cylinders. I can't stand you as a writer and I"m not sure why you have a job still. The funny thing was Hester blew by the eagles secondary and if you watched the game you would have known this.

Not only in college but his first couple of seasons in Chicago he took plays off. I think he is playing better due to him losing his starting job last year to Mark Anderson. Sometimes competition makes you a better player and he knows Anderson is waiting in the wings(even thought Anderson has not made too many plays since his rookie season).
