The Good:

Bears' D in the second half
Instant replay
Bears are first place in the NFL Cen-- North.

The Bad:

Four personal foul penalties plus one ejection. That's 60 yards right there.
Bears' offense. Wasn't *bad*, they weren't good.
David Terrell's celebration. What in the hell?

The Ugly:

Pat Summerall's "It looks like a catch to me" in the fourth quarter, when the replay clearly showed the ball barely hit the ground. Pat Summerall, who you crappin'?

MVP:
Brian Urlacher, and, well, my cat. Second time he's on the bed with us during the last minute... see what happens? Jay Feely goes wide-left. Tuna for the cat tonight!
I do worry a little about next week, though. 2-0 for the time being!

I thought Summerall was going to retire.

He SHOULD have retired. The man's been making mistakes like that for the last several years, so...

Summerall was terrible. I love to listen to the radio, because those guys are really good homers, but the delay is a little too much so far this year.

Bears' O was not too great, but did mostly what they had to. I would have liked to see them get at least a first down when they try to run out the clock though.

Bears' D was very good, as usual. WAY too many personal fouls, though. Some of them were legit, some weren't (Roughing the passer when he is in your grasp as he throws it? What is that?) Even the Falcons had a VERY questionable taunting call.

I think Feely and the Vikings' Doug Brien might be gone after this week. Although Feely's were pretty long, Brien has missed 2 XP's and the Vikes are down by 4. It remains to be seen whether it will cost them.

Hopefully Big Cat Williams and Washington will be back next week. Colombo seems like he did an OK job in relief.

My question: why should Feely look for a new job? It isn't as though it was the only moment in the game where the Falcons had a chance to score - they could have put another TD or a FG on the board with any of their other drives and would have ended up winning. Doesn't all come down to the kicker - he just missed on their *last* chance. Vick & Co. missed on quite a few others.

I don't think he's gonna get axed either; I just put it there because he's the goat.

Now, Doug Brien probably will get axed.

Regarding that game, I wanted to mention that Gus Johnson and Brent Jones *SUCKED*. Pat Summerall's alright; but at least he didn't have a Good Ol' JR Orgasm (tm) when Hollis tied the game. That was, to me, dumb. Not only that; when you criticize Minnesota for taking a TO :04 before the two-minute warning, you're green as well. Anyone knows that the 2MW is an extra timeout. DUH.

If the Bears announce team had it right (and I heard it right, I was kinda celecrating when they said it), Feely is 7 of 16 from 40+ yards. Less than 50% from distances that are what you are paid to hit is going to be something that sends up some red flags to those in charge of personnel in Atlanta. Every kicker in the pros can hit from within 40, if you can't do well past that, they'll find someone else.

The offense would have looked better if Dez White hadn't been channeling the spirit of Willie Gault's hands, and Booker had been able to use to giant paws of his for their proper purpose.

The defense sure did make it tough for Vick though. Urlacher is truly just a beast. Bears winning and Green Bay losing always makes a day bright for me. The Rams loss just was icing on the cake.

This is a testament to the toughness of the Bears. Even when the offense may not be clicking, the defense and Urlacher clamp down in the second half. Urlacher stuffing Vick on 3rd and 1 forcing the 45 yard field goal was a huge play.

Hopefully the injuries to Ted Washington and Big Cat aren't seriuos. With Daniels injury last week, the D line can ill afford to lose another starter with New Orleans hitting it's stride.



Bears 14 Falcons 13
Michael Vick talking pre-game smack = 12 tackles 2 sacks and a victory for Urlacher and the Bears

At least it was justified for Gus to go crazy on the game tying field goal. The problem is he was like that on 2nd and 4 completions in the second quarter.

Kickers who miss a lot of XP should be worried about their jobs, I can tell you that much. But in FG situations, I think the kickers needs to be cut some slack. I mean, look at all the Wide Receivers in the lague who still have jobs while dropping balls?

Yes, but to this day, I still can't think of a good reason why a kicker should ever miss an extra point in the NFL. WR's actually are doing something which could interfere with their catching (running routes, dealing with DB's).
