    Wait a minute, why didn't San Diego get Eli????
    Guess it's not a foolproof plan.
    It certainly appears after the last two weeks that's what plan the Texans are following

      I know what you mean. As a "Dol-fan" I hated Jim Kelly in the early 90's. They always seemed to have the Fins #. But, I'll give him his due. That K-Gun offense was pretty awesome.

      The same with Favre. I'm not a Packer fan but he is one tough dude and a good guy. It's hard to see a great player go out like that.

          If the Bears and the Colts ended up in Detriot this area would be elated. I am a big Dolfan but began my life in Baltimore. 41, 19, 78 and others were my favorites. Shula left and I followed. Young as I was it was hard not to be impressed by the Dolphins. Both the Bears and the Colts share a ton of NFL history and I can't imagine a better ending to this season. Sorry if anyone disagrees but sure would be nice for the locals. Hey BeiEOD if your nice I'll send you a pic of my Brian Cox autographed football! Go 51! Go 39! Go 13! Can't forget Jim Jensen! Yes there are more but who cares!
          See yah!

            Cox was ok but he is not Zach Thomas. Bob if you're nice I'll send you a photo of my retirement special edition autographed Marino helmet.

              Ortons pass rating the lowest in the NFL???
              Imagine what the Bears could do with a better QB.
              What a defense though!

                Hey look at Baltimore in 2000. Orton's just a rookie, give him a break. Also, the same criticism I hear about Michael Vick. If the guy wins who cares. Ben Roethlisberger wasn't exactly putting up Dan Marino stats last year but they won a lot of games.

                  I'm not trying to be critical of him Brian and understand that he's a rookie. My point was that just think of how good they could be if they had a better QB at this point. The defense and running game is winning the games and I'm not sure that you can get to the superbowl with a QB that is playing like Orton at this point.
                  We'll just wait and see at playoff time.

                    Alright you Bears fans answer me this. Adrian Peterson is avg 5 + yards per carry. The only game he really got a lot of touches he went for 127 yds or something like that. Then they put him on the front page of chicagobears.com talking about saving the running game, the next week only a couple of touches. Why won't they give him the ball? I know he is a free agent at the end of the year are they trying to keep his cost down by not letting out his ability?

                    Went to College with AP and he is a good kid and an amazing running back.

                      That's a good question Pirate. I'm sure they'll use him when they need him. Especially now.

                      Here's a link with some comments by Lovie regarding Orton. (note our 1 degree temp forcast at the top)

                        Again, one name for you: Trent Dilfer (QB 2000 Baltimore Ravens SB Champ Team).

                        Same syle team: great D, strong running game (Jamal Lewis), and just asked Trent not to lose the game.

                          Bri,
                          As a displaced Bears Fan (Chicago Born, raised in the Lake county) I appreciate the encouragement. I'm lovin' the season so far, but I'm not counting any chickens yet. The defense is winning, the offense is just not losing. Like Stevo, I would also like to see a better QB.

                          Go Bears!!!!!

                            For you Bears guys, this is from Peter King's MMQB Tuesday Edition.
                            MMQB

                            GREG IS ON THE BALL UP THERE IN THE NORTH COUNTRY. From Greg of Minneapolis: "Is there any difference between the 2005 Chicago Bears and the '01 Bears, who won games all year without the benefit of an offense but fell flat on their faces in the playoffs?''

                            Greg, that is not a good question ... it is a great question. At first blush, I would say the defense is slightly better this year, more opportunistic, with better bookend pass-rushers now (Adewale Ogunleye and Alex Brown) than four years ago (Philip Daniels, Bryan Robinson). And this is the biggest difference: In 2001, Chicago got a bye in the first round of the playoffs, then waited at home for their first foe. The Eagles, far better than the Bears that year, came in and destroyed them, 33-19. This year, there's no divisional foe like that who will come to Soldier Field. In my opinion, the Panthers or the Giants, likely the first-round opponent for Chicago, are not the Eagles of '01. But the reason that question is so good is because the teams are similar. Weak quarterbacking (Jim Miller, Kyle Orton), a 1,000-yard back the team was trying to replace (Anthony Thomas, Thomas Jones), one productive receiver (Marty Booker, who, remember, had a 100-catch season in '01, Muhsin Muhammad), and a suffocating defense. So many of the points were scored by the defense. The difference, again, is that the NFC was much stronger that year -- St. Louis and Philly were clearly better than Chicago -- and I don't think you can say any NFC team is clearly better than the Bears this year.

                              Hope everyone is enjoying a great Colts game. I really was worried about Jacksonville, they are a great team.

                                Looks like the Bears got crunched by the Steelers.
