I know what you mean. I feel if we win this then we'll get to perhaps week 10 having only lost once but lose this and maybe find the lions and titans slightly trickier.

Games like this can tell as much about how good you are as beating a higher ranked opponent. This is a week to week league as we all know, consistency in all situations is crucial.

I don't think much to the Titans, actually I am more concerned with Drew getting on a roll. The Lions are as ever hard to figure. They usually play bad enough to find themselves in a hole, but have the Offensive quality to get out.

Pedestrian looking first half, almost faultless 2nd.

They can't continue to have these terrible 1st drive calamities; a good team will take advantage.

O-line was very good, Cutler was good, Bush's leap defied gravity, Hester's catch will be Total Access play of the week, the Defense must collectively have sold their souls to the Devil.

Very big game up next, particularly with the Pack handing out early Christmas presents

Would agree with all the points raised above apart from the O-Line. Gabe Carimi was horrible yesterday, but the rest of them were good.

I only saw the highlights on RedZone, but good to get another win in the bag, good to see the defense continue to score, good to see us capitalise on GB's defeat earlier.

My impression was that the scoreline flattered us quite a bit. [Or not - looking at the box score we outgained Jacksonville 501-189, so ignore me]. Now we have a week off to get healthier and hopefully, see Houston send Green Bay to 2-4.

Good to see the Colts and Rams having success too, as it makes our wins over them look a little better.

Long, long way to go yet

You certainly can't have those cheap penalties.

slow first half - a better team may have punished us more, storming second half though, everything seemed to click.

Hoping bye week does some good and we can work towards getting to 7-1 before the Texans and 49ers.

You and me both! I''m hoping we get to week 10 8-1 and see no reason why not. I wouldn't be totally surprised to see us struggle with either the lions or panthers though for no other reason than it'll be just my luck!

agree with a great deal here. gabe, we must remember, has merely played 8 games and has a lot to learn but must do so quickly. decent times though.

you guys are looking better and better all the time.

Anyone who posts on the website regularly will know I like to be right, but being right would mean this:

Chicago Bears Superbowl XLVII Champions!

As predicted in pre season.

Note my Dad is a Bears fan so I can live with the Bears winning it all.
