Sean-Sational

LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson match up well against the Bears, which could make for an explosive Monday Night, writes Robert Weintraub on Philly Sports Daily.

You could do the same thing with a headline for the Steelers if they picked up this guy. And inevitable next comment if he or she was with this guy.

The Steelers don't have anyone who's last name ends in "burglar".

Bears have usually done a good job of bottling up vick schematically, though I agree that their softness against the run this year is going to be a problem. Should be a good game; looking forward to it.

I think it comes down more to players than scheme here. Urlacher is the most athletically gifted MLB probably ever. He can chase down Vick like no one else.

Also, I think all the changes at safety have made the Bears look worse than they will play. If Conte and Wright stay healthy, I expect a lot better play in limiting those 2nd level yard.

I'm pretty sure that you meant to say the Urlacher is the hardest working fan favorite MLB probably ever.

There has to be a line. Urlacher is easily the best tampa 2 MLB in the game at the moment. Are you going to criticize him for not being enough of a leader? Or is he not manly enough, as my friend from college used to say? Name a better MLB who plays a similar scheme (as in, not Willi or Lewis) and I won't think that you are an asshole.
PS
Not at all a Bears Fan

Are you still talking "ever"? Jack Lambert. Right now, nobody.

This goes from "best MLB ever" to "best tampa 2 MLB right now".
Quite a difference.

I never said he was the best. I said most athletically gifted.

My wife thinks it would be fun if the Eagles picked up Knowshon Moreno and Marshawn Lynch to back up LeSean McCoy.

Of course, she's also suggested we try creating a fantasy team entirely of people with "sean" (or a homonym of "sean") in their name.

Actually, you could probably make a half decent team that way...
