Rodgers-Cromartie explains sideline rant | Philadelphia Inquirer | 11/07/2011
"I got frustrated on a play that I should have known was coming and instead I did something else, so you know I kind of went off. (Shoot), I was mad, it was in the heat of the moment, (stuff) is going to happen." Asked if it was a blown assignment, Rodgers-Cromartie said, "it was a blown assignment, frustrated the way the night was going, all that tied into it."

How did the Bears limit Michael Vick? | National Football Post
After watching the Bears 31-24 win over the Eagles on Monday night, the one topic I have to discuss is Lovie Smith’s defensive game plan. No question we saw some impressive QB play from Jay Cutler, WR Earl Bennett made a major impact in Martz’ scheme and the O-Line consistently won up front. But I want to focus on how this Bears’ defense limited the production of Michael Vick (21-38-213-1 INT).

Dumb mistakes. Celek doesn’t get out of bounds late in the half. Maclin drops a key pass late in the half. DeSean has the worst PR in the history of football. He runs backward and fumbles, leading to 7 easy points for the Bears. There were missed blocks…a lot. Asante plays off and tries to bait Cutler into throwing his way in the endzone. Jay did…for a TD. I don’t know how Asante could have that mindset.
