    Re: Game Ball vs Bears

    I have never seen AD play with so much heart before. He just refused to go down and it was awesome to see how all the Bears defensive players got owned one by one in their attempt to tackle AD. I think that the run in the first half was his best. It wasn't one of his longest, prolly 15 yards or something, but he broke like 7 tackles on that run, and it set the mood of the game.

    I'm super happy of how all the players played tonight!

    Re: Game Ball vs Bears

    peterson is really taking these rivalries seriously. and that is freaking awesome!

    there was a hit on briggs (who sucks cause i saw him trying to kick peterson when he went by) that was just crazy.

    i noticed a couple times this year and at the end of the 59yder he didnt out run the defender who seemed to be closing in on him but instead waits to hit him as if he wants to stiffarm em or hit em and launch himself maybe? but i thought maybe he should have just out ran him, not sure if he could make it but it would a been close. just an observation, you really cant complain about it, just wondering if he thinks that he cant make it and tries to do that to maybe break a tackle.

    you really cant miss a play when petersons back there

    Re: Game Ball vs Bears

    I debated hard between Allen and Peterson.

    I gave it to Peterson, eventually.
    Madden said it during the game (who'd a thought..
    he DIDN'T get on my nerves this time!), how does a guy get his jersey so dirty/dinged by playing in an INDOOR stadium?
    Good question...
    I've always thought this.
    Just goes to show the grit and heart AP plays with.

    I'll take AP over any other RB in the NFL today..
    Possibly in the past too.

    Re: Game Ball vs Bears

    just a shout out to our special teams!

    abdullah seemed to always get there ([s]no tackles, but[/s] he was around the ball and made the replays ), kluwe can punt the hell outta that ball.

    one bad play with the sliding in the endzone when not at all neccesary (forget who it was, no biggie)

    no fumbles, no tds allowed. keep it up!

    edit: abdullah leads the team in special teams tackles!

    Re: Game Ball vs Bears

    Allen.
    He got three sacks and played with intensity and heart.
    He played a huge role in the success our defense had.

    I typically like to give the game ball to a single player (with the exception of last week, when I awarded my vote to the Jaguars because of TRULY exceptional circumstances).
    Allen was the most notable of our big-time defensive performers, and his play was emblematic of the play of our entire defense tonight.
    That's why I'm giving it to him.

    Can't believe you don't have Ced Griffin listed.
    He was fabulous tonight.

    I'm on a high - just got home.
    Gotta go to work in 6 1/2 hours!

    Re: Game Ball vs Bears

    My vote goes to Berrian.......
    Yes, the defensive stop made the 99 yarder possible.....but that single play turned the momentum of this game!
    It was hard not to have a Williamson flashback while the ball was in the air..... but once he caught it, he was gone!
    (plus he graduated from my Central California Highschool so he gets extra points)
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    Griffin was amazing tonight, best i've seen him.
    Only gave up one catch for short yardage.
    He also made a sick tackle against Hester on that reverse.

    Allen was an animal and got my vote.

    I had to go D. That 4 and out at the one? 3 picks? 225 or so total yards for the Bears? They ALL played like it was the end of the world. AD too!
