Chicago Bears Vs Philadelphia Eagles: Friday News And Notes

Eagles Sans Asante? : Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel is listed as questionable for Sunday, with an MCL sprain in his knee. He's missed all three days of practice this week. This would be good news for the Bears, as Samuel leads the NFL in interceptions with seven. Also questionable for the Eagles are DE Juqua Parker (hip), and DT Antonio Dixon (abdomen).

The Bears were once again at full strength.

The Best Linebackers? : Brian Urlacher says the Chicago Bears have the league's best linbacking corps,according to Chicago Breaking Sports. "No doubt we have the best. Not even a question in my mind,'' Urlacher said. "I think our whole unit believes that. And it's not just our starting linebackers. If you look at our whole group, we're the best group, top to bottom, no doubt.''

Urlacher and fellow LB Lance Briggs lead all Bears tacklers, with 78 and 70, respectively.

Easier said than done : The question of the week in Chicago has been, 'How do you stop Michael Vick?' LB Pisa Tinoisamoa has the answer, "You just have to attack that dude. You get 11 guys to him. And that's how you stop him.''  So, there you go.
