The Bears need some Griese

The Chicago Bears defense couldn't do any more - masterful first half in which they totally shut down one of the biggest offensive threats in the game. Sadly, the Chicago offense couldn't do anything more than repeatedly turn over the ball. The offense seems to think scoring touchdowns is also the responsibility of the defense.

It's time to drop the Rex experiment and put the veteran Griese in the lineup. Heck, I'm still behind my guy Kyle Orton, who I think should have been given a second chance, rather than Rex who has gotten one chance too many. There is no explanation for the turnovers, and lack of production, by the offense. It was a painful game to watch, even for the only fan of both the Packers and the Bears.

I will not mention how the Pack did, other than to say they totally embarrassed Trex's Eagles with plays like these. Old man Favre has still got some shine to him...

The thing that's upsetting about the Bears is the dismissive way sportscasters talk about them, as if all their success over the last few years has been largely due to luck. Then the Bears go and have a day like today and it just seems to reinforce the idea.

If things don't turn around soon for the Monsters of the Midway, it's going to be a long season...

ok i admit it, if the Eagles won, i would have been trash talking you into next year. On the bright side, the Eagles can fix their special teams, and cut down on the stupid mistakes. I expect everything to be back to normal w/in 2 weeks. The Packers, on the other hand, cannot change the fact that they are Packers, and they are doomed. Bears? Last year was a fluke. --T-Rex
