The saints really shot themselves in the foot in this game.
Or maybe, just maybe, the Bears are a lot better than them.

I've been saying this since week 5 or 6, the Saints are neither good at running, or stopping the run, that's a deadly combination.

When you pass for over 300 yards and only score 14 points, that's a problem.

stupid turnovers are safties dont help either.
Whatever. The Bears are going to be 15-3 with a perfect record in the NFC in games that matter. We've been the best team in the conference all year long. You can say whatever the hell you want. ESPN can say whatever the hell they want. We just clubbed "America's Team" today.

The Saints imploded more than the Bears won. I'm not sure bf-51 how you can argue that the Bears were alot better than them. If you said that they were better, fine, I can buy that, but to say a lot better? The Saints, outside of self-created mistakes that didn't seem weather warranted, played better for 2/3rds of the game.

But either way, we are in the Super Bowl, so thats all that matters. The Saints had the same flaw as us, which is susceptibility to pass rush if allowed to tee off. I'm rooting for the Colts, as I think we match up great against the Colts and would probably be the favorites in that game. ALthough, I do think the Patriots are the favorites.

Lmao all the dimwits at ESPN picked the Saints except Accuscore. :shock:

guess the forgot the facts:
*No dome team has ever won a conference championship game outdoors.
*No 3-13 team has ever made the Super Bowl the following season.
*The Saints have never gone to the Super Bowl.

all those facts will remain true after Sunday.

There is always a first time for everything.

Saints 38
Bears 24

The same thing I've been saying all year, the Saints run defense is terrible. It's disgusting really. They can't stop anyone. All it took was on drive of Grossman actually moving the ball and making them respect the pass and they folded like a stack of cards.

But I can't see how you picked us to finish 8-8 and for the Vikings to win the division, so I guess we're even. :wink:

Can you honestly say that the Bears dominated this game today? That's the short of it, and I don't see any way that is a reasonable assessment relative to the argument that the Saints self-imploded. The defense had holes early on, but the Saints self-imploded and wasn't able to take advantage. The Saints offense was moving the ball, but self-imploded. That's essentially the argument you are making, and for most of the game, that wasn't valid.

I made that 8-8 pick in March of last year. Nice job bringing it up I guess.

And now..without further delay..."The Bear's Shuffling Crew!!"


(CHORUS)
We're the Bears Shufflin' Crew.
Shufflin' on down, doin' it for you.
We're so bad we know we're good.
Blowin' your mind like we knew we would.
You know we're just struttin' for fun
Struttin' our stuff for everyone.
We're not here to start no trouble.
We're just here to do the Super Bowl Shuffle.

Well, they call me Sweetness,
and I like to dance.
Runnin' the ball is like makin' romance
We've had the goal since training camp
To give Chicago a Super Bowl Champ.
And we're not doing this because we're greedy.
The Bears are doin' it to feed the needy.
We didn't come here to look for trouble,
We just came here to do
The Superbowl Shuffle.

This is Speedy Willie, and I'm world class.
I like runnin', but I love to get the pass.
I practice all day and dance all night,
I got to get ready for the Sunday fight.
Now I'm smooth as a chocolate swirl,
I dance a little funky, so watch me girl.
There's no one here that does it like me,
My Superbowl Shuffle will set you free.

I'm Samurai Mike. I stop 'em cold.
Part of the defense, big and bold.
I've been jammin' for quite a while,
Doin' what's right and settin' the style.
Give me a chance , I'll rock you good,
Nobody messin' in my neighborhood.
I didn't come here lookin' for trouble,
I just came to do the Superbowl Shuffle.

(CHORUS)
I'm the punky QB, known as McMahon.
When I hit the turf, I've got no plan.
I just throw my body all over the field.
I can't dance, but, I can throw the pill.
I motivate the cats, I like to tease.
I play so cool, I aim to please.
That's why you all got here on the double,
To catch me doin' the Superbowl Shuffle.

I'm mama's boy Otis, one of a kind.
The ladies all love me
For my body and my mind.
I'm slick on the floor as I can be.
But ain't no sucker gonna get past me.
Some guys are jealous
Of my style and class.
That's why some end up on their (bleep).
I didn't come here lookin' for trouble,
I just get down to the Superbowl Shuffle.

They say Jimbo is our man.
If he can't do it, I sure can.
This is Steve, and it's no wonder.
I run like lightnin', pass like thunder.
So bring on Atlanta, bring on Dallas.
This is for Mike and Papa Bear Halas.
I'm not here to feather this ruffle,
I just came here to do
The Superbowl Shuffle.

I'm L.A. Mike and I play it cool.
They don't sneak by me 'cause I'm no fool.
I fly on the field and get on down.
Everybody knows I don't mess around.
I can break 'em, shake 'em,
Any time of day.
I like to steal it and make 'em pay.
So please don't try to beat my hustle,
'Cause I'm just here to do
The Superbowl Shuffle.

(CHORUS)
The sackman's comin', I'm your man Dent.
If the quarterback's slow,
He's gonna get bent.
We stop the run, we stop the pass.
I like to dump guys on their (bleep).
We love to play for the world's best fans.
You better start makin'
Your Superbowl plans.
But don't get ready or go to any trouble,
Unless you practice
The Superbowl Shuffle.

It's Gary here, I'm Mr. Clean.
They call me "hit man"
Don't know what they mean.
They throw it long and watch me run.
I'm on my man, one on one.
Buddy's guys cover it down to the bone.
That's why they call us the 46 zone.
Come on everybody, let's scream and yell.
We're goin' to do the Shuffle,
Then ring your bell.

You're lookin' at the Fridge,
I'm the rookie.
I may be large, but I'm no dumb cookie.
You've seen me hit, you've seen me run.
When I kick and pass, we'll have more fun.
I can dance, you will see.
The others, they all learn from me.
I don't come here lookin' for trouble,
I just came here to do
The Superbowl Shuffle!

Isn't that how our defense always plays? Isn't that what they do? Bend but don't break? This is exactely how they wanted the game to go except for that one play Reggie Bush made. Giving up yards but not points and causing turnovers. We led the game the entire time and ended up winning by 25 points, yes I would say that is a dominating performance relative to the playoffs anyway.

And I bring it up because you are always looking for reasons to doubt the Bears, even to go so far as to look for real competition in the North when there obviously wasn't any.

"This game was more the Saints imploding". I don't buy that for a second. We made them implode.

"This game was more the Saints imploding". I don't buy that for a second. We made them implode.

FIrst, let me start with, I didn't post here in the fall awhile, but I did post on the Bears site. And at that point, I can go around digging for my file if you want, I had the BEars at 11-5 and going to the conference finals. So, I'm not sure how I was doubting us all along. Yes, I did pick against the Bears in this game, but so did many others, and losing one game isn't really doubting a team.

Second, you said something along the lines of, we were a much better team. I said if you said we were better, then yes, I agree with that. Much better, I would disagree, and if deciding between

a) The Bears were much better
b) The Saints imploded

I would lean B because the Saints were the better team for most of the game outside of the 4th Quarter. I'll take a look at the film later this week, but I doubt I'd change my opinion on that. It seemed, at first glance, more of a case of the Saints not making open plays and self-imploding than the Bears forcing them otherwise, but as noted, I would readily agree that the Bears were better, just not much better.

Either way, this is sort of a fruitless discussion in the end and more just a discussion on the game. Getting to the SB is all that matters, no matter how good a team is, if you get there, who cares.

And I don't know how you can post on the Bears board. Even I think the amount of homers is overwhelming.

The only reason the Bears are in the Super Bowl is because of the pissant schedule they had. You play a bunch of bad teams you are bound to win at least 12 games. You win those twelve games then you play a terrible team in the Seahawks and then you win because of weather and a poor field against the Saints. What a conjob.

Or they're just better than the Saints? Here's another thing. The Bears and Saints both played 4 playoff teams. So that means even if they did suck, they'd go 12-4, like the Saints. But the Saints went 10-5 in games that actually meant squat, and the Bears were 13-2 in games that meant anything. So that debunks your theory right there. I've been saying it for a while now, Bears are the only team in the NFC with a shot at winning the SB. The Saints would get roughed up, the Bears will at least push back.

Well the Bears won the contest to see who gets the crap kicked out of them in two weeks by the Colts or Patriots. The only reason the Bears are in the Super Bowl is because of the pissant schedule they had. You play a bunch of bad teams you are bound to win at least 12 games. You win those twelve games then you play a terrible team in the Seahawks and then you win because of weather and a poor field against the Saints. What a conjob.

Wow.
Story of our season. Let me guesss...you're a Titans fan?

Please shut the *********** up.

Why should I shut up? Because I see through the BS that is the Chicago Bears?
We made the *********** Superbowl.

By the way, I will gladly make you a bet that we will not get blown out in the Superbowl (ie: by a margin of 20 points). If you would like to make the bet I'm all ears.

I think the Bears are better. If they had have lost by just a few points I'd agree with you. But 25? No, I'm sorry. The Bears were playing on that field too, and the better team will not lose an NFC Championship game by 25 points. The Bears WILL contend in the Super Bowl, book it.

And yet you completely fail to respond to the fact that the Patriots played an easy schedule too. Your entire argument is insane. We're the best team in the NFC. We wouldn't be the best team in the AFC but who cares? I'm sure everyone will pick the Pats/Colts to win just like everyone picked the Saints. None of that will matter.

Anyway, I'm done with this. You really don't even have an argument, you're just trying to be annoying.

Wow, some of this stuff just hurts to read

Of course the Bears are good team. They deserve every bit of being in the Super Bowl. While everyone was hung up on the Saints-Eagles game as teh real NFC championship, I took a long hard look at the Bears - Seahawks mathcup, which ended up of course being a very tight game between my predicted NFC representative in Seattle (a team that I felt could've put it all together and almost did despite closing out the season with a terrible couple of weeks and suffering many huge injuries (I know they got lucky a bit in the playoffs, but I would've stuck with them)) and the deserving representative that is the Bears. Earlier maybe, but how can you possibly say now that the Bears are not good?? It makes no sense. Its a simply idiotic statement.

I feel now that the Chicago Bears will win the Super Bowl. If Indy ends up winning today, I'll pick them only because they were my pre-playoff prediction, but I really feel that the Bears will win it regardless of their AFC opponent, barring some super amazing play during the rest of tonight's game

something happened, and, er, go Colts!

It doesn't matter how hard or easy of a schedule the Bears had. They WON the games they needed to win. They deserve the superbowl birth because of winning. No one handed it to them. People that say the Bears had an easy schedule need to say that about all NFC teams then. The NFC is horrible. The Saints are a dome team trying to win in REAL football conditions not inside a dome. Congrats to the Bears and thier fans. I'm sure it wasa great year. Being a Steelers fan, I know what it is like to have people cry cause thier team wasn't good enough to win. We heard it all last year. The Bears are the team from the NFC that actually has a shot at winning the big game. They are not like the seahawks or teams like that. They have a defense that can win a championship. Defenses do win championships.

The saints really shot themselves in the foot in this game.
Or maybe, just maybe, the Bears are a lot better than them.

I've been saying this since week 5 or 6, the Saints are neither good at running, or stopping the run, that's a deadly combination.

When you pass for over 300 yards and only score 14 points, that's a problem.

stupid turnovers are safties dont help either.

******* a man, we preach turnovers all the time. We play a bend but don't break defense, it's how we've played all year long. We give up yards and force turnovers, so please shut the **** up. I'm tired of people bitching.

The team that makes plays wins games. And I said it since the playoffs started, the team that stops the run and runs the ball the best will win this game, period, and that's what happened.

First half, no. But 2nd half yes. He made smart plays though and didn't force anything. And he made big plays when he had to.

Certainly not as good as last week but I'd give him a B for this game.

I'm sorry, but the better team won today. I just watched the game for the first time (nope, I didn't see it live, had to work) and the total yards stat is very decieving. We played prevent for much of the 3rd and 4th quarters, and the Saints just threw everything underneath. That and Reggie's 88 yard TD helped out a bit too.

But our defense was just HUGE today. Sure they gave up yards, but the Saints are too good of an offense to be able to shut them down for an entire game. And just like the Seattle game, when their backs were against the wall, they were just huge.

And like Chris said, Sean totally abandoned the run when they got down. I think Lovie and his staffed proved they were better and it definitely showed on the field today. Sean definitely has a lot to learn as a coach.

They beat TWO teams with a record above .500. They played teams that have a top ten draft pick SEVEN times.

THAT WAS THE REGULAR SEASON. THEY ARE IN THE SUPER BOWL. THE REGULAR SEASON MEANS CRAP. WHO CARES WHO THEY PLAYED. THEY BEAT THE DEFENDING NFC CHAMPS AND THEN THEY BEAT THE 2ND BEST TEAM IN THE NFC, SO THEY DISERVE IT. ALL TEAMS WHO MAKE THE SUPER BOWL DISERVE IT. GOOD DAY!

I hope it's a good game, I really do. But don't underestimate our offense either, or our ST's.

We are not going to stop the Colts' O, we just have to try and stahl them and limit their points as much as possible. They're too good of an offense to be able to stop them.

First and foremost, to all the Bears fans out there... please don't think that these certain jackasses that are still arguing about who the better team is are reflective of all Saints fans.

To all the Saints fans, we have nothing to be disappointed about. Before the season started, no one (not even me) would have thought the Saints would be one win away from the Super Bowl. Personally, we now can look forward to the offseason to see if we can sign and/or draft that one or two players that could be the final piece of the puzzle.

To the Bears fans, the best of luck in Miami against the Indianapolis Colts. As diabsoule pointed out, it should be an excellent game; with a high powered offense versus a shut-down defense. As Bill Walsh says in that Coors Light commercial, "I'm looking forward to it." :D

I am amused by the 9 people who, since the game ended, have voted for the Bears to win the game.

And I think there are some truisms that need to be spoken:

1) If you're a dome team and you practice all week indoors while your opponent practices all week outdoors, you're in trouble

2) If you're a hot-shot Heismann winner, show some class and don't taunt your opponent in their stadium, while they're still ahead. You're just giving them more motivation to spank your butt.

3) Sometimes team "implode" because their opponents flat-out beat them.

Honestly, in my opinion, no. We made the same mistakes against Cincy (in the Dome), Baltimore (in the Dome), and at Pittsburgh and ended up with the same result.

2) If you're a hot-shot Heismann winner, show some class and don't taunt your opponent in their stadium, while they're still ahead. You're just giving them more motivation to spank your butt.

How are they doing that?

I personally don't think it was a big deal, but it definately pissed the Bears off. You could tell by their post-game comments and Wale even said something to him after the play untill Bush asked the ref to bail him out. It's not so much the taunt, it was the fact that he did it to Brian Urlacher (who then later in the game almost seperated Colston's head from his body).

Bush even admitted it was a stupid thing to do, and it only served to motivate the Bears. After that they got the safety, the game was pretty much over.

Oh no doubt about it. The turnaround this season was incredible for this team and they are going to be good for a while.

I love all the Saints fans on this board, well ok the majority anyway. flyboy, diabsoule, SDP, #1SaintsFan, Geo, etc...And I was not directing my pissedoffedness (I made that word up :lol: ) to you guys, mine were more toward guys like Ewing. Fine don't give us any respect before the game, but if we do soemthing like we did yesterday, you had better shut your mouth.

There was a 50 vote differential on this board, all the ESPN guys (minus John Clayton and Da Coach) picked the Saints, Vegas put us at -1 at home (home teams usually get -3), and were slandered in an article on ESPN by Wojo. Talk about just a slap in the face and even though I really don't care too much what the ESPN guys say, I was pretty upset with what was going on.

But hey, we took care of business on Sunday and that's all that matters. Like NickBam said, "let the haters hate."

Congrats on a great season, thanks for the support in the SB, and good luck next year (unless we meet again in the playoffs). :P

"I got caught up in the emotion of the game," said Bush, who said he didn't know who was chasing him. "I was excited. I told coach Payton I apologize for it. I was wrong. I allowed my emotions to take over."

My point is that Bush is the Franchise, and having that spiffy Heismann, he's supposed to be something better than a guy who taunts his opponent while his team is losing. Given that Bears defenders said that it pissed them off and motivated them to play harder, in retrospect, as Mr. Urlacher said (paraphrasing), "I'm sure he would have rather won the game than showboated."

And this isn't a double-standard. I said the same thing when Hester pulled that crap. I was hoping he'd get flagged so he would learn not to put the spotlight on himself instead of the team.

Because bottom line: after the play the scoreboard gave 6 points to New Orleans, not to Reggie Bush. But his little taunt, dive, and dance motivated the Bears to play shut-down football the rest of the way.

Whether or not you're losing, winning, or tied; you just don't do it. Just run into the endzone, act like you've been there before. I'm an old school fan and I'm not big on celebrations. I idolize #34 and how he used to just hand the ball to the ref after he scored.

Plus Devin did it in their house. What both Bush and Hester did was classless; and I hope they've both learned their lessons. So you cannot get mad at Reggie unless you got mad at Devin, because he did the same god damn thing. Sure it wasn't a playoff game and we were winning, but it doesn't make it valid to do.

Thank you. To me, it doesn't bother me in the least.. simply because A) football is a game of emotion and sometimes you let your emotions get the best of you. Regardless. Not to mention that I could see why Bush celebrated in the first place.

1. He just made the entire mighty (I'm not using 'mighty' to be sarcastic either) look completely silly.
2. He smoked one of arguably the best LBs in the game (not one-on-one, mind you, but still).
3. Turn of momentum.

But, whatever. Like I said, I don't think it was a big deal but I can also see why it would have gave the Bears' defense more incentive to clamp down. *shrugs*

I'd expect Reggie to be able out run Urlacher in a dead sprint. Reggie is a 4.3 guy, Brian is about a 4.45 to 4.5 guy. Manning and Tillman got smoked on that play. It was a nice move by Reggie, but that TD should've never happened.

Oh well, we won so I'm not going to ***** about it that much but it can't happen against the Colts.

If the D needed Reggie Bush to showboat inorder to convince them they should play lights out in a playoff game, Id be seriously dissapointed in them.

As far as Bush burning Urlacher, you do realize Urlacher is 255-260 lbs and the fact that he was anywhere close to Bush after being half way across the field is more a testament to his freakishness than Bush's athletic ability.

Also I couldnt believe Rivera had the guts to put Urlacher at cornerback one on one with Bush in pass with no safety help. I would have liked to see how that play played out but Brees didnt test it.

Urlacher was all over Bush on that play. I would've dared Brees to throw that ball. It was pretty sweet to watch Bush try a stop and go too and Urlacher didn't buy it. :lol:

I think the Bears got a good shot in the Superbowl. I'm not a Bears fan, per se, but you can't just judge them by their record. The way they simply crushed some teams was very impressive. Sure they had their bad moments, but loosing players like Harris would hurt any team and they needed their adjustment period after Harris went out. I don't remember the Saint's crushing any opponents in their schedule in the same manner as the Bears. It's true that the AFC has more quality teams, but to think that the Bears who absolutely dominated most of the season can't hang against the AFC just doesn't make sense. The Bears can take the title this yr. but that won't mean that the NFC is the better conference. When all is said and done I think this season has been filled with alot of great football and as a fan. I'm loving it.

bush's taunt had nothing to do with the outcome of the game. they drove down the field the next drive but missed a FG. bears went 3 and out. maynard pinned them deep. then brees got a dumb safety. that is what swung the momentum back to chicago. to think that chicago played any harder after that than they were already is stupid.

i like what bush and hester did. but if you got a problem with one then you have to have a problem with the other. where, when, why, and who they did it to is irrelevant.
