Found November 08, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:
Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips told the media today that they plan on double teaming Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall on every play. I think this is a wise decision by Phillips and the Texans since Marshall is one of the Bears’ dangerous players. In the NFL the best receivers can beat a double team.  We’ll see if Marshall is up to the challenge on Sunday night.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

They’ll win the AFC’s top seed with ease regardless of what happens. They really only play 2 teams with close to their talent level the rest of the way, Chicago (this week) and New England, and even if...

Chicago Bears, Not 49ers or Falcons, Are NFC's Best Team

The Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers fans will disagree but right now they are wrong!  Both of those teams have been very impressive in the first half of the season, but they do not have the X-factors that the Bears do.  Not to mention when the Bears and 49ers play a week from this coming Monday the Bears will show...
