Wow.  They look pretty good.  Are they for real this year?  Usually they fade off in the playoffs, but maybe if Grossman keeps playing well and stays healthy, they could make quite a run.  Any Chicago fans around?

I was excited for a good game last night.  I guess at least I got to go to bed early smile.

I think you'd be hard pressed to name a better team so far.

I lived in Chicago up until 3 months ago, and it does my heart good to see the team acting like a bunch of badasses again. Last season was good, but it was hard to watch the defense play so well and then see Kyle Orton botch 5-yard passes. Now that we have a quarterback to back up the defense... this is going to be a fun season.

Bills are  this |--| close to being 4-0.  But they stink so, you're possibly right.  Baltimore is so solid, but I'd have to say the Bears are playing the best right now.  Cincy would have been arguable if they hadn't gotten smacked around. Same with Jax.

I can't think of any.  Baltimore hasn't beaten anyone yet.  They beat SD who had beaten the same crappy teams that Baltimore had played.  Chicago crushed Seattle, which even w/out Alexander, is pretty damn good.

Cincy has far to many holes, and Jax doesn't seem to show up at times.  Indy is weakened this year too, as they seem as bad against the run as Cincy, and are struggling a bit on offense (for them).

Does Chicago have any other real teams on its schedule?  The rest of Chicago's division doesn't count.

I dont think anyone is saying that about the Cardinals this year...  Also, the Bears dont need to be for real, they get to play Green Bay and Detroit twice each.  4 wins right there.

They have back-to-back-to-back road games in November against the Jets, Giants, and Patriots.  That's about it.

4-0 != Superbowl, EVER...

Just ask a metric ton of teams.

For goodness Sakes, The Saints were about 3 points(ish) from being 4-0...

I'm not ready to say Super Bowl, but they way they have played has been damn impressive, far more impressive than the Colts if you ask me.  Just because the Saints were almost 4-0 doesnt mean they are playing on the same level as the Bears.  Did the Saints destroy the NFC champions?

Errr, The Vikes almost beat them. Actually, that was the toughest test yet for this Bears team and they about failed. Yes, they won. But they haven't seen the last of MN.

I don't know if I'd call it a pounding as they were one dropped catch at the end from winning the game.

Game against the Patriots should be interesting for the Bears, as its at Foxboro.  If Brady is in sync with his new WRs finally, could be fun.  Low scoring fun, but maybe a good game.  Otherwise, Bears could be the top seed for the playoffs in the NFC.  Could be interesting watch the Eagles or another really good NFC team visit Chicago for the NFC championship.

It doesn't matter because both Seattle and Chicago have very easy schedules and both are better than most all the teams they will face.  Barring horrible injury luck, both will end up with 12 or more wins and host playoff games.  By beating Seattle, Chicago now holds the edge for #1 seed, but with 12 games to go it's too early to say whether that really matters. 

However, Chicago is in the best shape of any NFC team right now.

I'd bet this game would be closer then people think in Buffalo, but on the road, I'm not so sure.  The Bills defense is pretty good though.

The Green Bay rematch is their last game of the year.  If they've clinched everything they can by then, they're likely to rest starters, giving Green Bay a shot.

Not to mention is SHOULD be Favre's last game so hopefully he'll be amped to go out with a win. Of course, that probably means he'll throw 6 pickles, but...

Yeah, you're right james. 

Colts who have squeaked by mighty Tennessee have proven there a better team this year ( opp win% .347) ?
NE who lost to Denver, and only squeaked by the team the Bears just annihilated is better?
Cinci, who lost to one of the teams above, and whose wins come over teams with a .307 winning record? (Bears opp win% is .391, btw)
New Orleans, who have struggled to beat the Browns, the Packers, the Bucs,?
Jacksonville, who lost to Washington?
Philadelphia, who spectactularly lost to the Giants, and has an opponents winning % of .333?

Please, tell me who you think has proven they are better.  I'm dying to hear this.

The Cards? Dude, they have the 49ers and Fins the nest two games after that.  They should be 8-0 heading into week 10, when they go on a three game road trip.

One game at a time.  Yeah, the Bears SHOULD win all those games on paper, but you never know.  Every NFL team has good players, and if you let your guard down against even a team like Arizona, you could be surprised.  Plus, the Bears have gotten some breaks this year, such as the number of times the other team has dropped sure interceptions.  If they ever play a game where Grossman doesn't get away with dumb throws, they could be in for a close game.

Not trying to diminish what they've done by any means - I'm a Bears fan, and I think they're the best team in the NFL - but no NFL team is unbeatable.  I think these Bears learned that in last year's playoff loss, which was a good lesson for them.  One game at a time.

Have they played a really good defense yet?  I wonder how Grossman will do if the running game gets shutdown.  I think the Bears look pretty good though, but against a team like Denver, or even NE, could be interesting.  We'll see the NE - Chicago game in a while, which should be fun if you like punting!
