Congratulations to the Chicago Bears

Postby pjbogart » Sun Jan 16, 2011 9:58 pm

Wow. I was really impressed with The Bears dominating performance today versus the Seahawks. Was it just me or did Chicago almost look like a playoff team beating a sub-.500 wannabe? Cutler actually looked like a starting quarterback for most of the game. Good defense... reasonable offense... The Bears looked like a team that could probably beat... The Seahawks!

Seriously, folks. The Bears got the one game they could actually win in the playoffs. Saints, Falcons, Packers, Eagles, Bears and Seahawks. The Seahawks are the only team in that bunch that The Bears really had any reasonable chance of beating, home field advantage or not.

Get ready for the smackdown, boys. The Packers are peaking and look like the best team in the NFL right now. The Bears are also peaking and look like they actually belong in the playoffs. Should be a good game.

Packers 126- Bears 3 (Hester will get them in field goal range).

You left out the stunning performance of one Jay Cutler. He's had his first winning season, first playoff game since high school and perhaps the best performance of a QB in the playoffs against a sub-.500 team perhaps ever. What was Breese line from last week? Anyways I hope Da Bear fans out there have a fun week of feelin Da pride, talkin da trash, using da word "da" instead of "the" and don't take it to hard when they get Da beatdown on Sunday. Great year for Football in the state of Wisco.

Oh, I don't know about that. The other team on your list that the Bears could beat is the Bears. They've done it repeatedly in the Lovie Era. At least Rex is no longer "our quarterback."

Da Bears have two things going for them that it will be hard for the Pickers to match: special teams and incredibly crappy sod in Soldier Field. Straight up on a decent field, I'd take Green Bay and lay 30 points. Awful turf and awful weather, the Bears have a chance.

Take it "to hard"? Where is this "hard" you speak of, Fisty? Just reinforcing Bears fans idea of what PackerBackers are like.

In their two games this year Rodgers had 2 TD passes and 2 interceptions. His record is 4-12 in games ending in a 4 point or less differential. The Meat Packers threw everything they had at the Bears in a do-or-die game a few weeks ago, and put up 10 points in a deer-in-headlights performance. It will be an ugly, close win for the Beloved, 17-14.

I think the Bears would be capable of beating the Eagles and the Saints on their home field. I think it will be a close game just because they play so hard, especially on defense. 24-19 Pack, winning ugly.
