  1. Why are we letting the officiating fiasco from the giants Steelers game die out? They’re making it impossible to play defense, and making awful calls in the process.

  2. So basically the Bears mugged Tennessee yesterday…
    5 forced fumbles by Tillman, one of which went out-of-bounds…a pick-6 by Urlacher…a blocked punt for a TD…Seven scoring drives by the Bears’ offense, including three Cutler-to-Marshall TDs…Forte rushed for over 100 yards…Another great Hester return…And 10 of the Titans’ 20 points came on a gift safety and a garbage-time TD against our second-string defense.

    When did it become popular for a losing coach, after his team just got their butts handed to them, to look into the camera with a straight face and say ‘Yeah, we beat ourselves?’
