Not being able to decide who to award a game ball to is not a bad problem to have, especially when it includes players, positions, and coaches from all three phases of the game.  But today, we proudly hand out the game ball to the 4th Phase of the game: The fans at Soldier Field.

After back-to-back losses at home earlier in the season, the Chicago Bears returned to Soldier Field yesterday with a chip on their shoulder, and you could easily say the crowd did as well.  From the opening possession through the final snap, the greatest football fans in the world were loud, rowdy, disruptive, and completely assisted the team in getting the win over the Philadelphia Eagles.  Think that didn't effect the players and coaches as well?  Think again. Jay Cutler was fired up, Olin Kreutz wasn't taking any crap, Mike Tice was raising hell, and the Eagles were boiling over with frustration.  Forget just making the playoffs... the Bears could be looking at home field advantage this year, and the 4th Phase proved yesterday that we will wreak havok on thos who ener our domain.
