Bear Notes

EAST RUTHERFORD _ David Terrell was the only Bears receiver with more than one catch, with four for 70 yards. It was his biggest game in terms of clutch catches, and his 28-yard reception set up Bernard Berrian's TD catch.

"I'm going to win some and I'm going to lose some,'' Terrell said.

Terrell said he had a talk with general manager Jerry Angelo and it helped set things straight in his mind when he was struggling earlier this year.

"The thing is, Jerry told me, if I want to be in Chicago, make the plays,'' he said. ""I'm going to make them because I want to be in Chicago.''


Anthony Thomas has 208 yards rushing in two games as relief for injured Thomas Jones, but even after a 28-carry, 110-yard effort Sunday he doesn't think he will be the starter when Jones returns.

"When Thomas is healthy, I think he goes back in as the starter,'' the A-Train said. ""When he needs a break or he gets tired, I'll be there to give him a break.

"I'm getting to know what's going on more. I know he's the starter here.''


Defensive end Alex Brown and some other Bears took delight in the fact they proved the experts wrong.

"We felt like we could win, but I don't think anybody else did,'' he said. ""I heard Michael Irvin and somebody else say that (a Giants win) was their pick for the week. And they lost.''

Cornerback R. W. McQuarters was the subject of a story Saturday on the front page of the news section saying a suit had been filed against him because he hadn't paid his mortgage on a $1.3 million condo.

After the game, McQuarters was asked about the report. He wouldn't comment, and didn't even want to say, ""no comment.''

He just walked away.
