Darnell Mooney's NFL debut

Post by long green »

Darnell has 3 catches for 38 yards and counting in his first NFL regular season game.

Darnell caught his first NFL TD today. Highlight shown at half on the national CBS broadcast.

It's fun watching a former Tulane player catch an NFL touchdown and another former Tulane player kick the PAT. Hope they do it a bunch more.

Getting lots of publicity up here. Seemingly overtaking ted ginn.

Santos missed a 50 yarder but otherwise been good. Been lucky to have so many tulane guys on bears in recent years.

Nothing seemingly about it. Ginn was inactive Sunday while Darnell was putting up a better stat line than Julio Jones did that day.
Sports Talk radio and most sports message boards are the killing fields of intellectual discourse.

well, the Bears coach has been coy about it but actions speak louder than words. of course, the problem is that its still Mitch throwing to Mooney. even that TD catch was an ugly pass.

We have old friends who live a mile from Wrigley Field. When the Bears drafted Matt Forte I called them and told them they got a great one. He was skeptical at the time. He's sold on Tulane players now.

Mooney has his most productive game in Bears' last regular season game.

Mooney is questionable for Sunday's playoff game against Saints.
