Congrats to the Bears, they are the best team in the NFC and it showed today. I just wish the game was a bit more entertaining :P

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.

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 ) 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."

Interesting. this comes AFTER the dance too. so i guess the emotions forced a grown man to do a jig? Hmmm.

Dude Hester did the same crap against the Rams on their turf. I'm over it, he shouldn't have done it, oh well, he apologized, move on.

1. Rams game wasn't a playoff game
2. Rams D is never called the best in the NFL
3. Bears were winning after that TD
4. Hester didn't taunt a former MVP
5. Hester didn't do a little jig after his TD

Reggie pissed off the D after that display of disrespect. Total pts after Reggie's Riverdance: 0

We won the Rams game. The Saints didn't get close to sniffing the endzone after that.

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.

But Hester taunted the St. Louis player into the endzone and did the Primetime high step.

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*

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.

Oh, please. People are making that celebration out to something bigger than it actually was.

"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."

Interesting. this comes AFTER the dance too. so i guess the emotions forced a grown man to do a jig? Hmmm.
Dude Hester did the same crap against the Rams on their turf. I'm over it, he shouldn't have done it, oh well, he apologized, move on.
1. Rams game wasn't a playoff game
2. Rams D is never called the best in the NFL
3. Bears were winning after that TD
4. Hester didn't taunt a former MVP
5. Hester didn't do a little jig after his TD

Reggie pissed off the D after that display of disrespect. Total pts after Reggie's Riverdance: 0
But Hester taunted the St. Louis player into the endzone and did the Primetime high step.

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.

Urlacher's dynamicness is just amazing. (and yes I said dynamicness)

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.

If I remember correctly the look on Bush's face when Urlacher didnt bite on the stop and go and kept stride with him was priceless. :D

Brian Urlacher is a freak of nature.

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.
