Sorry to both Bears guys. This one will never be broken, he toed the back line of the end zone.

3 TDs in the last game and a half for Cromartie. Call it a breakout season.

CB's aren't judged by return TDs. They are judged on their ability to cover.

He doesn't suck. I was just saying just because he's returned a few picks/kicks for TDs doesn't necessarily qualify him of having a breakout season.

Congrats to Cromartie. Hard to believe this record has been set or broken each of the past three seasons.

Yeah that's kind of an interesting thing to discuss. What about these last few seasons has changed in football? Are teams trying harder on this type of return? Are teams going for longer and longer field goals? What's changed in the NFL.

I think it is a good mix but I think that often its just a stupid decision to go for the really long field goal and not be fully prepared for the possible. I mean Minnesota had Ryan Longwell of all people going for a 58 yarder, they had to of suspected that it would be returnable.

He never said it was a breakout season for his play at CB, but mentioned the impact he has had in the last few weeks. 1 fumble (returned for a TD), 3 INTs (one for a TD) and a missed FG-TD (109 yards) in 2007? Huge.

From where he was drafted and what he did last season (0 INTs, 1 fumble lost), it can/should be considered a breakout year.

It's funny how winning controls everything, 'cause nobody cares. Unfortunate, but that's how it works.

Which has actually significantly improved, and been very good this year....he may be our best corner. Which isn't saying much though...

How true. Good record; meaningless without a win.

i think seeing this many big plays of missed field goals might change the stragedy for coaches on long field goals... either not attempt them or have some kind of speed on the field to help cause whenever a kick is caught, it is almost automatically a TD cause its a guy with 4.4 speed vs 300 LB linemen and a kicker and holder....

Devin Hester stopped caring about this record 2 years before he broke it. He's already thinking of how he can return the ball both ways for 218 yards.

Seriously, why have Ryan Longwell attempt any field goal longer than 45 yards? He makes anything under 45, but once he gets passed that, he falls just short, EVERY SINGLE TIME! On long attempts, the ball falls just short of the crossbar every single time.

what part of 'anything more than 45 yards' is too difficult? Yes. Since 46 > 45, obviously including 46

So then 45.1 is a no go, he must really suck
