Look, there is no doubt, NO DOUBT, that Springs' play was the game changing play. But there can't possibly be anyone on the Warpath, or anywhere else, who wouldn't have chalked up an automatic victory for the Bears if they knew Campbell would go down in the first half. Also, consider the crew that Collins suddenly was in charge of. This team was already completely demoralized--Sean's death, the heartbreaking defeat at home in a game they wanted to win for Sean, followed by the funeral, and then a game in the frigid cold two days later while riding a four game losing streak. How much more could it take? And then the team saw is budding leader go down and get carted off the field? Yeah, which one of us would have wanted to take over the reins of the team under these circumstances? Well, Todd was forced to, even though he essentially hadn't played in five YEARS. And how'd he do? Better than anyone could have possibly imagined. Did he look like Favre? No way, but again, no one could have reasonably expected that he would perform half as well as he did. So, you gotta give the game ball to Todd.

Collins, and he said it all^

I'm changing my mind and think that we need a O & D game ball. Spring's turned the game around then Collins moved the O. I think both were very important and without either one of those this would have gone down as a L.

Re: Redskins v Bears game ball

Todd, DEFINATELY gets my vote. to come off the bench and played the way he did last night was awesome. That was a big game for us as a team and for him to look composed and as sharp as he did speaks volumes for his ability to understand the offense with such limited opportunities in practice.

great job Todd Collins.

Re: Redskins v Bears game ball

Collins and no Malcom there Quaterback controversy...seriously...

He had a good game, and made no mistakes...but if he were really that good he wouldn't be a career backup...

Re: Redskins v Bears game ball

Perhaps Todd is finally getting his shot and could be a late bloomer like a Rich Gannon?!

Yes I'm kidding.

Re: Redskins v Bears game ball

I give mine to Smoot. I think this guy played his heart out again this week, was carted off, and still came back because he knew they had to have him out there. That is the kind of fight I want to see.

Now, Collins did a nice job, and the playcalling had balls for once. Next week will be a different story, but for this week, Collins and Smoot get game balls.

Re: Redskins v Bears game ball

One cannot fathom success last night without Todd Collins. He came off the bench and had probably the best performance of his career. Making pinpoint throws while executing the offense to near perfection. He was the difference in this game.

Re: Redskins v Bears game ball

Guys, I was a sports bar last night in Morgantown, WV(Tons of SKins FANs) and these Bear fans actually had the nerve to say something derogatory about SEAN. I was disgusted and started telling off and he swung at me and missed. We threw down for respectable cause, even a Cowboys fan wouldn't say shit like that. It was crazy and so was Collins blowing up.

Re: Redskins v Bears game ball

yea i definately give credit to sean springs for the game changing play late in the 2nd Q.. but i have to also give Todd collins the game ball.. he came in just like wevery other game not really expecting to play.. but when he was called upon he did great. He lead our team to a good and well needed win, made 0 mistakes, couple TD tosses... it was a great job

Re: Redskins v Bears game ball

All of those players had good games (except Portis he really didn't have a good game). I really had to vote Collins though. The guy hadn't thrown a pass in a regular season game in years and then he comes in throws for 200+ yards, 2 tds, and no interceptions. What a game!

Collins. To step in in the middle of the game and step up the way he did isn't easy.
